    Hello! I hope someone here can help me out. My wife's 2014 Chevy Malibu LTZ started blowing hot air about a week ago. My first thought was that it needed more refrigerant, but when I hooked up my manifold gauges to it, it showed a huge amount of pressure on the low side and about 100 psi on...

    Hi all, I have a 2010 Chevrolet Malibu 2.4L 4cyl that’s been throwing a check engine light about 10 miles after I get gas, and will turn off about 40 miles after that.

    Hello, I recently got a Cehvy Malibu LT 2018. I don't like the Stop/Start feature and found about the L6 mode fix. I was wondering if driving in L6 mode turns off traction control. I also heard that you should put it in L2 first during winter as to not skid out when you start moving, is that true?

    So I just bought a 2012 Malibu 1LT with the 2.4L engine in Mocha Steel Metallic with 60k miles on it. The engine and color are kind of disappointing, but I bought it from a relative and the price was too good to pass up for a first car. I’m a high school senior about to go to college so I don’t...
