05 malibu leaking oil from rear of engine

This may be from excessive pressure in the sump from blow-by from the compression process . It is from a blocked PCV valve that is not equalising that pressure. I have also known oil leaks to happen because the rear main bearing cap is leaking oil past the join around the bolts (loose) or no sealing compound used in assembling the rear main bearing.. I would look at the PCV valve as it is the cheapest test first.. Check that the oil is not coming from the front gear box seal or torque converter seal.

I have a 1999 chevy malibu that has a coolant leak. The leak seem to be coming from underneath the fan belt end of the motor. As soon as I put water in the coolant jug it leaks on the ground.

Check the lower radiator hoses for a leak and the lower part of the radiator itself for a leak. Also, check your engine oil level and make sure you don't have water in your engine oil. If you do, you have most likely lost one of the timing chain guides and the chain has worn a hole in the front cover of the engine or the block has cracked. Another possible problem location could be the water pump leaking at the forward seal.

1998 malibu shifts and operates fine when warm, if cold out (northern Michigan) car won't move until car gets warm, then operates smoothly and properly

In your neck of the wood you need to have a block heater to keep the car warm at temperatures that are below freezing will cause the transmission fluid and oil to gel, in the transmission the oil does not stay on all parts so if it freezes it can damage the transmission. There are additives you can add that will help with this problem however if the clutches freeze or the seals freeze you will damage the transmission. So if you can add transmission additive called Lucas conditioner and or change the fluid to synthetic transmission fluid the same with the motor oil. A block heater or synthetic motor oil with extreme cold the oil will drain off on all engine parts and transmission parts and can cause a dry start condition or no oil on major components in the transmission will cause damage to the transmission. The rubber seals in both the engine and transmission will get damaged and can be destroyed and cost you a lot of money.

Main seal

First is it a front seal ,or rear main seal,(front seal,being were you see the pulleys and fan belts,,you have to look at the bottom pulley,follow the shaft to the motor,where the shaft goes into the motor is the front seal,the pulley and everthing behind it has to come out then you pull out the seal,auto zone actually has free tool rental that you can pull the seal,and a tool to put it back in,if a rear main seal its where the shaft from the transmission meets the back of the motor,youll have to pull the trannsmission back,check where you see the oil leek from,the front seal you can do if mechanically inclined,but if its the rear you should take to a mechanic,if this helps please give me a fix ya vote
