I have been taking my car to get it fixed because the check engine light kept coming on. It has been since July. First the engine started stalling after putting in gas. I had it towed 2 times.

My story is about a 2001 Chevy Malibu. For the longest time i have had the theft light come on the dash now and again and the car would not start. I found a relearn procedure on the web. the one that you turn the key on for 10 minutes a few times, then it resets and I can start the car. Finally took it to a mechanic.
