  1. 2008 Malibu LT 2.4L : Spare storage scheme

    Gen 7 General Discussion
    I ended up putting a piece of plywood under my cardboard trunk liner. It seemed to give it the support it needs. I like the idea of a cross type lugwrench. I'm going to look into that. It won't be additional stuff in the trunk, as a lugwrench is a valuable accessory.
  2. Debadging my trunk lid 2011 in 2019?

    Gen 7 General Discussion
    I was out doing some errands yesterday and I saw a white Malibu with the letters removed, and thought it looked pretty cool. When I went on the forum, I see guys doing that back in 2008. So if I removed the letters, if I use the scratch remover it will take out the image? Who makes the...
  3. Debadging my trunk lid 2011 in 2019?

    Gen 7 General Discussion
    I'm just wondering if I could see the image on my switchblade silver car if took the letters off the trunk lid and the flexfuel emblem?
  4. Headlights flicker at idle

    Gen 7 Problems/Service Issues/Troubleshooting
    Thanks guys for your help. I talked about the idle problem on another forum, and it pointed to the Throttle Body and MAF. I guess I better get that checked on my next oil change at the dealer.
  5. Headlights flicker at idle

    Gen 7 Problems/Service Issues/Troubleshooting
    I've noticed my 2011 at a stop, when my car is idling, that my headlights and the engine will for a second be interrupted and the headlights will flicker. It's intermittent, and when I pull away, the engine runs fine and the headlights are also fine. This has not been a emergency, as it...
  6. Backup Camera install

    Gen 7 Modifications
    Thanks for the information, but Garmin is a little more than I want. I'm just looking for a backup camera and screen. I'm not a big traveler, so GPS doesn't really suite me. It looks like a really nice set-up for the Daytripper or adventuresome person, but I just want it to back-up. I read...
  7. Backup Camera install

    Gen 7 Modifications
    I'm thinking of buying a wireless backup camera, and would like to know which one is best, and if there is one out there that would go with the dashboard on my 2011 2LT. I saw one with a power plug that goes into the source in the compartment below the radio. I don't want to stick it on the...
  8. 2011 adjust headlight

    Gen 7 Modifications
    When my car was new in 2011, someone hit my left front fender in a parking lot. As a result, I had to replace the front bumper cover and the headlight. When I got it back from the body shop the headlight was a little high. I bought a extra long phillips screwdriver, and like you said, it...
  9. I am having trouble with tire pressure monitor's accuracy

    Gen 8 General Discussion
    Good idea! (y)I'll probably invest in another plug in.
  10. Changing transmission fluid by flushing

    Gen 7 General Discussion
    Yes, I always check things over after getting work done. I don't like turning the wrenches, but I do know where to look if I get things done. If not, I see if there is a U-tube video.
  11. Changing transmission fluid by flushing

    Gen 7 General Discussion
    My car is still shifting fine, I did notice a couple of spots on my garage floor where the residual transmission fluid dripped. It was in the vicinity of the oil cooler lines in the radiator, so now I know they did the work. Sure wish the transmission had a dip stick. When I bought my car in...
  12. I am having trouble with tire pressure monitor's accuracy

    Gen 8 General Discussion
    My wife's Honda is a 2009, which has the light. That's good information about checking how much air your loosing. I never thought of that when my low tire pressure light came on. It was a first time incident for me, and I had just bought a car battery compressor. It sure came in handy. I...
  13. I am having trouble with tire pressure monitor's accuracy

    Gen 8 General Discussion
    Thanks for the information, I guess I can expect to replace them soon. I like reading all the tire pressures from my dash, instead of going around the car with a gage.
  14. I am having trouble with tire pressure monitor's accuracy

    Gen 8 General Discussion
    I like the TPM system on my Maibu. My wife drives a Honda, and all it tells me is that I have a low tire, it doesn't tell me which one. I've been caught with a low tire on the road, and all I have to do is take my little compressor out of the trunk, plug it in and the shot of air gets me to...
  15. Fake wood vs aluminum trim

    Gen 7 General Discussion
    I got the short end on that one. I've got the leather wrapped steering wheel like the LT's and a plain shift knob like the LS's. They owe me. Not that I'll ever see one. I like the leather wrapped shift knob though. :cautious:
  16. Black Cherry

    Other Rides
    That 2017 Regal that Malo83 is more my speed. I buy used Certified, or used with low miles. The last car I bought new was a 97 Honda Accord SE. I don't like to see the depreciation. I did a 2020 build on a 2020 Malibu and the price was in the mid 30's with all the stuff I wanted on it...

    When did they start painting cars with the Black Cherry paint?
  18. Motor Washing

    Gen 7 General Discussion
    When you go to the local car wash, the engine is hot. I would think the change in the temperature of the water to the hot engine might cause some problems. I was thinking of using Gunk Engine Cleaner on a cold engine, then a light spray of water, then Gunk Engine Shine. I don't know what the...
  19. Fake wood vs aluminum trim

    Gen 7 General Discussion
    As a 77 year old, I can say I've had that for awhile. Maybe that's why I'm so partial to silver cars.
  20. Fake wood vs aluminum trim

    Gen 7 General Discussion
    It sounds like you are a "Silver" person also. I traded a silver 97 Accord in on this Switchblade Silver Malibu. Yes, you could say I like silver. My favorite cowboy was The Lone Ranger, and of course his white horse was Silver, and he had Silver Bullets.
