1999 Chevy Malibu Wont Turn Over After Repairs

My 99 3400 v6 Chevrolet Malibu overheated and I blew a head gasket so I recently tore it down and replaced the head gaskets as well as all the other gaskets. I then replaced all the fluids including the oil and I had a full tank when my car overheated. Everything is now back together but when I tried to start the car it would not turn over it attempted to and almost did but it never turned over.

Oil Leaking From a Sensor Above the Starter

Oil leak on my 2002 Chevy Malibu LS

I recently blew a head gasket. Took the heads to a machine shop where they were tested and machined along with new valve seals.  The engine is all back together and running perfectly with no leaks or problems anywhere except for an oil leak that has me baffled.  The leak was there when the head gasket went.

Air Blows Warm but No Check Engine Light On

2004 Malibu Maxx 3.5L.
It is warm now and the AC is not coming on to cool the car.  There is no Check Engine Light on.  Is there a fuse I can check and if so where? Also, if there is no Check Engine light on is it safe to assume no Codes are present?  How do I go about reading the Codes form this car?  Thank You KC

1997 Malibu Engine Ticking and Overheating

1997 2.4 Chevy Malibu has a loud ticking sound when at idle or high rpm cold or hot. Replaced the head gasket and it started making the noise. i also replaced the water pump. Car starts and dies if i keep my foot on the gas then it stay running does idle rough but with a lot of power. If you disable ignition and crank the car you do not hear any ticking and car cranks great.

1999 Chevy Malibu Will Not Crank at Times

1999 Chevy Malibu
The car will not start when the ignition is turned all the way over. The battery is fine and I think it is a switch problem.  Sometimes I can leave it alone for a few hours and it will fire right up. Other times I just turn the ignition on and off about 5 or 6 times and it starts. I can detect a pattern to this problem as it seems to come and go.
