    Hi Rodents,
    I'm looking for correct information, not just speculative generic seem to know your stuff.

    I'm dealing with my friend's '07 3.5L giving a low oil level warning intermittantly. Oil level is good. Replaced sensor, was okay for a day, then problem is back. Cleaned and inspected connector, no fix. Where do you recommend I go next?

    Hello Rodents,

    Just wanted to say thanks for the info on the afterblow. I had my dealer's shop turn it on since I was getting that nasty smell when I turned on the AC. I also changed the cabin air filter. I hope that fixes the problem. I have seen water on my garage floor so I am pretty confident that the drain is not plugged.

    Can you answer a question about the dealer's BG44K throttle body cleaning service. They recommended it at 30,000 miles. I think that may be overkill. $170 after only 30K and no issues going on. I told them no thanks. What do you recommend for throttle body service? I have the 2013 Malibu Eco with the 2.4 liter.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Hey, I was reading your posts in the steering and suspension sticky thread and you seem like you have a good idea on what is going on with the Malibu. I have an 09 Malibu 2.4L and have a buzz/rattle type noise near the gauge cluster/lh a pillar area while driving. It only happens around 2Krpm under light load/cruise speed on the highway. It is definitely not in the roof or anything to do with the headliner or sunroof. The noise sounds like plastic vibrating and is light sounding. My question is have you had any experience with rattles or buzz noises from the left side of the dash or possibly around the firewall or engine compartment that may cause a noise like this? Thanks for your help.
