  1. Gen 7 Do It Yourself Maintenance
    My kid just did an "emergency stop" with some 8 ft long steel rods spanning between the trunk and the front seat, which of course caused one of these rods to plunge through the center dual vent in the dashboard, breaking out the vent louvers on the right side. It's his 'first car' and he loves...

    Hi I have a 2011 Chevy Malibu and the problem with it is as soon as I start it, it will turn on but the RPM’s will start to flutter up and down and the car will die off. A temp solution I found for it is I will press the gas immediately when I drive. Another issue with it is at stop signs or red...

    So I recently purchased a 2011 Malibu, it has the 2.4l Ecotec. It runs and drives fine (well as good as it can, being this is how I got it) however there is a steady check engine light that flashes every hundred miles or so, and I can feel a slight very almost unnoticable shake at idle, and when...

    I recently had a CEL come on my 2011 Malibu. Took car to dealer for service and was told I needed to replace both the Intake and Exhaust Cam Solenoids. I did that and asked them to go ahead and change the oil as well since the car was already there (oil change indicator was at around 26%, no...
  8. Gen 7 Problems/Service Issues/Troubleshooting
    I've noticed that my 2011 Malibu is making a strange crackling noise when I accelerate. The engine works great at idle, and no strange noises. The crackle noise only happens when I first drive the car for the first mile or two, and notice the noise is loudest when the engine is below 2000 rpm...

    Probably a dumb question but here it goes. When I lock my 2011 Malibu with the FOB my Anti-Theft Indicator light begins to flash periodically every three seconds. my questions: 1. It periodically flashing every 3 seconds when locked means the system is armed and working correct? 2. With the...
