Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Transmission 2007 Malibu Maxx has not been able to move in 2 months. Trans never gave me a problem or any warning. Drove down hill to make a right turn to go 2 more blokes to home. I went to press on gas and nothing. Runs but won't go in any gear. What could cause this problem?

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.

It sounds like a sensor is intermittantly loosing the data stream. Since the engine light came on, I would go to a reputable shop and have them check for codes. Many auto parts stores will do this as well and sometimes for free. Can't beet free. If I were to guess I would say something like the camshaft postion sensor is going bad, Or the crankshaft postion sensor, Or something like that. The code will tell which one it is.

Good luck, and if you have any further questions please....ask!

the problem has to be in the linkage inside the transmission which means that you have to take into a mechanic to have them fix this because if you do not know how to take the transmission apart yourself is the reason why to take it to the nearest mechanic. Sorry

Are you check trans fluid levels? Sound like a problem with the torque converter or internal valve body solenoids clugged. I suggest check with your technician before to buy or think in replacement parts.

Hope this helps.

Where is the transmission fluid

The trans is not designed to be checked, there should be a plug on the side to fill if the trans fluid is drained.

Dtc code p0121 and p2135 2007 chevy malibu

both codes refer to the throttle position sensor, the sensor is at the throttle plate, on the side of the throttle body. to test remove the connector to sensor, use a ohms meter to test. put 1 lead to top connection and the other to the bottom one. move throttle and the needles on the ohms meter should move very even, move throttle slow to get a good reading, needle should move without no hesitation, if the test is bad replace tps sensor. if the sensor gets to bad, it can have an effect on transmission shifting. after fixing sensor have the light turned of with an obd2 scanner.

Great design!!!! There is a plug on the right side of the unit.(like the ones on a stickshift trans) you need to remove it on level ground and fill through the hole you mentioned. It's full when fluid begins to run out of the hole on the side.

I need to know the location of the Transmission dipstick on a 2006 malibu maxx LTZ 3.5 lite, as the car is not shifting properly shifting,it runs as its stuck in 2nd gear and yet its an automatic...

If you can't find the stick, likely you have one of GM's "better ideas"...See if there is a fill cap on top of the trans, If it's there, there is a plug on the right side of the transmission. Remove the plug and on flat ground, fill 'till fluid comes out of the fill hole, then re-install the plug.
But, the condition you have outlined sounds like the trans control is stuck in "limp mode" and may need attention (trans diagnostics) to determine if your problem is in the trans or the control itself. Especially if you see no obvious leaks fluid may not be your problem.

Transmission fluid level?

There is a 11mm plug on the passenger side of the trans near the axle shaft. Remove that with the car level, trans hot, and engine idling. Fluid should just come out of there when its full.
