    Wow, sorry about the bad luck.
  2. Cradle chassis?

    Gen 9 General Discussion (Generation 9)
    All we know right now is that you have a 2019. Which engine do you have? Other than that one repair, have any other repairs been attempted or completed? All FWD engines rock a lot more than RWD ever have. But that doesn't mean that yours isn't doing something wrong.
  3. Mobil1 High mileage not Dexos approved? First oil change 2018 1.5 T

    Gen 9 Do It Yourself Maintenance
    Regardless of your comment, I'll answer that: Insurance, plain and simple. The timing chain tensioners in my 3.6L V6 are the Achilles Heel and the best way to cause them to wear faster is to have oil with additives that are too weak to do the job. I can't and won't say that other oils can...

  5. 2013 Chevy Malibu Electrical problems!

    Gen 8 Problems/Service Issues/Troubleshooting
    @ambuske2 We could use more info, such as the year, engine, trans, and trim level of your car. Otherwise, we're just shooting in the dark.
  6. 2013 ECO 2.4L VVT Solenoid Replacement

    Gen 8 Do It Yourself Maintenance
    I kinda doubt that warranty allows a used part of that kind to be installed straight from the junkyard without some kind of warranty to you. I'd be checking my warranty paperwork to be sure it was a righteous repair.
  7. Service battery charging system

    Take pictures in case it has to go higher up the food chain.
  8. Service battery charging system

    Gen 8 Problems/Service Issues/Troubleshooting
    When they said it "dropped" a diode, that suggests to me that one of the rectifying diodes failed and was either completely open (no current passing) or shorted (all current passing). An alternator actually creates AC power and needs to be converted into DC. It does this by means of diodes...
  9. 2012 Malibu no power to ac/heat controls

    Gen 7 Problems/Service Issues/Troubleshooting
    It depends on what you've already done and how qualified you (and/or your mechanic/DIY friend) are.
  10. LED turn signal ( Built-in load resistor)

    Gen 9 Modifications
    Mounting it to metal means that the user also has to find or buy a clip to wrap around the resistor and then attach the clip to a metal part. The resistor can be free-floating, suspended only by its wires, so long as it doesn't touch anything that'll melt or be damaged by the heat it puts off...
  11. Need to re-wire a new trunk lid...

    Gen 5 & 6 Do It Yourself Maintenance
    Can't you use your old trunk lid as a model? Does it still have the stock harness or is it missing?
  12. Oil consumption with LTG?

    Gen 8 Problems/Service Issues/Troubleshooting
    I think it's more of a general statement that, just because the oil is rated for 15K or 25K, folks buy it and then run it to that mileage. Of course, most of us on here are smarter than that about OCI's, including you.
  13. Sunshade Rattles

    Gen 7 General Discussion
    In my first Gen7, a 2009, I asked the dealer service dudes about the "diving board" sound that the sunroof makes and was told it is normal. Now that I'm on my third Gen7, and all 3 with a sunroof, I've applied that same method to keep the noise to a minimum: Hit the open button to let it vent...
  14. Oil consumption with LTG?

    Gen 8 Problems/Service Issues/Troubleshooting
    If that is your suspicion, you might wanna consider an oil catch can. If you do, get one that is ready to be installed and has all of the components to make a complete solution, not one that you have to modify yourself. Also, take the intake tube off the engine and dump out any oil that has...
  15. 2008 Malibu 2.4L, 80k: Using a Floor Jack

    Gen 7 General Discussion
    On my 2011, I use an aluminum racing-style low-height jack with a rubber insert in the cradle's cup. I can jack up the front and rear with it to change the oil, do the brakes, or anything else. I agree that it's a bit of an issue with finding a good spot, but even with my car being lowered...

  17. 2015 Malibu 6t40 transmission problem

    Gen 8 Problems/Service Issues/Troubleshooting
    Good question! Back in 2013, when I owned my first 2011 LTZ, I needed the selling dealer to find and fix the issue I was having with my remote start. Sometimes it'd start, and other times I had to go outside, turn the key on and back off, and then it'd start remotely. The dealer had a...
  18. LED turn signal ( Built-in load resistor)

    Gen 9 Modifications
    My 2011 turns on the reverse lamps when I unlock the doors, but only if it's dark enough outside. When starting the car remotely, they don't turn on. Does your model turn on the reverse lights when the RKS is activated? Can it be changed in the personalization settings? Or do they turn on only...
  19. 06 Chevy Malibu 2.2l no spark, help please

    Gen 5 & 6 Problems/Service Issues/Troubleshooting
    The general rule is that fuses don't blow for no reason. If the wiring is good then there's a component somewhere that's drawing too much current. Unplugging all of the components and then plugging them back in one at a time might tell you which one is the culprit. Has any work been done on...
  20. LED turn signal ( Built-in load resistor)

    Gen 9 Modifications
    That is a very telling image for sure! When you're backing up, does the LED seem to offer more usable light than the original bulb?
