i got the code from the OBD IT read a code of 23 and one of 36 now i need to find what it means

code 23 is MAT too low.(mass air temp.) code 36 is Mass Air Flow Sensor Error

The ECM receives a signal from the Mass Air Flow sensor depending on the amount of air entering the engine. The ECM uses information from this sensor to help calculate fuel delivery and spark timing.

      I have a 2005 Malibu and the engine light is on the code it gave me was P0102 what is that code, and another thing it shifts into gear hard why is that

      hi the error code relates to a problem with the mass air flow sensor this is a common problem with this make of vehicle and the meter will need testing to ensure it is the meter at fault only a garage can do this as they have a diagnostic machine that will give them all the air readings allowing them to pin point the exact error.

      As for shifting hard into gear i take it yours is a auto box if it is the the fluid level will need checking as this can cause the problem you are having.

      Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
