Question about 2006 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx
Last month I was at a stop and the car would not move forward when I was in automatic and pressed on the gas. I limped the car home in manual 3rd gear worked but could not come to a stop since first would not work. Took it to the dealership 3weeks and 4K later my new transmission is now bolting forward when I put the car in drive and press on the gas. Returned to the dealership and they tell me its the 5th and 6th cylinder and I need a new engine. The car drives pretty good the rest of the time which makes me question that I need a new engine. I have 50K on the car. two sets of tires, two sets of brakes and the leather seats have splits in them and I dont have backseat passengers that ride back there.
Good afternoon and welcome to fixya
all right first of you you need to go and get a second opinion from another shop, i can tell you that you do not need another engine, sounds like a solenoid on the transmissionis not getting the proper pressure, these transmissions are very sensitive to fluid changes and pressures. i would take the vehicle to a well known transmission shop and not tell them that the dealership said you need a new engine. just tell them the problem your having and let them know that that is a new transmission, could just be fluid is a little low. good luck and let me know the outcome and ill try to help you more.
