  1. Gen 7 Problems/Service Issues/Troubleshooting
    I have been having an ongoing problem. If I drive more than 50-60 kms, the car will enter what I think is Limp Mode - it will not shift out of 4th or 5th (I can drive at 110 km/h with RPM around 3000). If I pull over, shut off the car for about 15 seconds, I can drive away and get another 30-50...
  2. Gen 5 & 6 Problems/Service Issues/Troubleshooting
    Hello all. I recently wrecked my 08 classic, so we bought another one and swapped the motor over. Now that it’s running, I’m having an issue with the transmission range sensor. It won’t show what gear it’s in on the dashboard, the doors don’t lock when going out of park, the backup lights don’t...
  3. Gen 9 General Discussion (Generation 9)

    Starting a thread for removing the transmission from my 09 Malibu, which will be replaced with either the original trans being rebuilt or a remanufactured one.

  8. Gen 9 Problems/Service Issues/Troubleshooting
    I have an ongoing issue with my 2016 Malibu 1.5L Turbo. I will be driving normally then all of a sudden the RPM’s shoot to around 5k, the check engine light comes on and the car gets stuck in 2nd gear. When it does finally shift, the car shifts so hard that I practically get whiplash. When I try...
  9. Gen 7 Do It Yourself Maintenance
    Hi all, My 09 Malibu had an issue shifting 3-4, so I decided to fire the parts cannon and replace the solenoids, and thank goodness I did. The top solenoid (I think solenoid A) appears fine, but I took a closer look at the wires connecting to the solenoid and they appear to have gotten pretty...

  14. Gen 8 General Discussion
    My 2013 2.5 liter transmission failed last week at 122,000 miles. I primarily drive highway miles at a constant speed and never run the rpm's up. Car stopped going into gear and the transmission shop diagnosed that it was burned up. No lights or warning in the sense of slipping or noise...

    I bought a 2008 Chevrolet Malibu LTZ 3.6L V6 6spd (automatic transmission) as my first car a year and a half ago. I'm in love with this car. The problem is that due to the 3-5-R Wave plate failure, my car's transmission has crapped the bed. I have been looking to see if there are any other...
  17. Gen 7 Problems/Service Issues/Troubleshooting
    At around 60mph while cruising at a consistent speed the car will lurch. The feeling is like when you change gears on a bike and you pedal skips before it finds the gear and you can pedal again. Is this the transmission slipping? If so, is a flush recommended on a car this old? 2010 Malibu 109k...
