SOURCE: Stuck CD in the multi CD player of 2004 Chevy Malibu Maxx

The only thing that is left for you to do is to remove the stereo and then disassemble it and remove it yourself. A little daunting but needs to be done. Sounds like it went in wrong and then became jammed

Try pushing the trunk release and turning the key in the lock at the same time.
It sounds like the electric lock has not released for what ever reason.
You should hear the trunk release relay when you push the remote.

Oil leaking from above the oil filter


I had this problem on my 06 G6. The oil filter housing gasgket needed to be replaced. The oild filter housing is what the oil filter screws onto, and the housing attaches to the block of the motor, and theres a gasgket inbetween the block and housing. The oil filter housing is held on with three screws, and one is extremely difficult to get to. I also had to remove the belt and unbolt the a/c compressor.

How to change the oil pressure sending unit for a 2007 Chevy malibu


I know this this is awful old, but seriously It was hard to find and now having replaced the Oil pressure sensor in my 2007 Malibu Maxx Hatchback (3.5 L Engine). I can assuredly tell you where it is.

It's right above the Oil Filter on the front bottom side of the engine. I accessed it from under the car. It's cramped, You'll find removing the starter motor useful. There is a heat shield over it, but I couldn't get to the nuts easily, but found I didn't need to remove the heat shield. The sensor took a 22mm deep socket (mine was 1/2" drive). to get it out, and back in.

It's number 1 in the figure below that was a screenshot from the Ebsco Automanual website - the only source that actually knew where thing thing was located. You can see the filter below and the starter motor.

2have an oil leak around the oil filter housing, maybe around the censor....could it be a gasket or could it be coming from the nut that holds the censor?


It could be either but it is impossible to say without inspecting the car. If the leak is around the filter housing I suspect it is more likely from the oil filter. The oil filter gasket may have failed or the filter may not be screwed on firmly enough. However filters do not have to be screwed on very tightly to prevent a leak. If over tightened they can be difficult to remove and the rubber gasket can even be damaged.

I suggest you have the oil changed in the car and have the oil filter changed at the same time. This is very cheap to do and a new decent quality brand oil filter (such as MOTORCRAFT which meets Original Equipment specs for your car)) is only about $10 - if that. Whilst the oil and filter are being changed from beneath the car, with the vehicle on the hoist, it should be possible to examine the likely source of the leak.

Engine code: Misfire cylinder 1. Replaced plugs


There should be no built up fuel or oil in cylinder. The fuel will be burned off immediately, and there should have been very little unless you have a leaking injector. The only way oil will enter the cylinder is if you have a mechanical failure like worn rings or leaking valve seals.If after replacing the plugs and wires did not correct all or the skip after the first start up and road test then you have another issue causing the skip

Oil leaks from the oil filter adapter


If it is not the suggested gasket that is leaking then it is the oil pressure switch located exactly above the oil filter adapter. The black plastic housing could have developed a crack and oil will ooze downward and drip off the bottom of the adapter. I had this problem and changing the oil pressure switch took care of it.
