SOURCE: Chevy 2002 Malibu ERG valve

Symptoms of a bad EGR valve are usually stumbling idle or the engine stalling when the car is warm (normal operating temperature). Find the EGR valve and locate the vacuum line attached to it. Start the engine cold and wait for it to warm up. When the engine starts to stumble, pull off the vacuum line. If the EGR is bad, the engine idle will stabilize and no longer stumble.

How do I remove an oil pan from a 2002 malibu, 3.1 liter

When you say the pan will not drop down do you mean that it is still stuck to the block. If that is the case manufacturers use a gasket material ( sealer that is an adhesive to glue the pan to the block and so reduce oil leaks at the gasket. You may have to use something like a paint scaper and a hammer to cut the gasket free..

How to drain and fill transmission fluid in chevy malibu 2012??

mostly to drain transmission oil it is necessary to remove the pan. At 72000miles I suggest that you have an accredited transmission shop do the job as it will be due for a band and clutch pack adjustment and filter clean and general service and this can all be done while the pan is off.

Where is the oil drain plug in my 2002 chevy malibu

It'll be easier if you jack up the front of the car, but there are only 2 options for Chevy drain pans (depending on the engine you have). It is either smack bang in the middle of the engine block at the center (will be a small bolt head seemingly sticking out of nowhere on the drain pan wall, the bolt head will be facing the back of the car).

Or the other arrangement will have the bolt head near the front passenger wheel in line with the axel (it is pointing out towards the side of the car, horizontally). Look for an aluminum oil pan with the bolt head sticking through it.
