The error could be in transmission abs airbags or engine among others. As many modules these days is staggering. Suggest take it to dealer. Not many mechanic shops have the ability to check codes or repair suspension , airbag or other manufacturer specific design ed systems. And you will get much more knowledgeable mechanic. Could be as simple as wheel bearing loose, most prelevent cause, but without codes from computer making lights come on, were dead in water. Transmission in limp home mode makes me lead to guess, ya just a guess, to say you are missing a speed sensor. Signal. Now car will still start without crank sensor, tourque converter input speed sensor, trans output speed or any of the four abs wheel speed. Like I said loose wheel bearing causes mag pick up wheel speed sensor to miss counts, ad has predetermined amount of pulsed electrical signals it produces, when one not equal to others then pops code. Good luck write what code is found and where. Thx

On my 2006 Chevy Malibu lt traction control light comes on when I put it in drive only tranny started long hard shifting when t/c light came on please help


You best bet is to take it to a ASE certified repair facility . The first place to start would be to check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes in all modules on the vehicle an go from there .

Not shifting after 40 mph, could it be something other than tranny issues??


Sounds to me like the car is in limp mode. This happens when the cars computers see something very wrong, and locks the transmission into second gear. This would explain the boggy feeling at take off and the limited speed. You should definitely get your check engine light checked out to see what code is there. Only then can you pursue the problem further.

Traction control on chevy hhr 2006


The traction control and transmission shifting would involve the body computer more so than the engine computer.
Have you had the body computer scanned for trouble codes ?

Chevy 2006 hhr light says t/c what does this mean?


Could be for the traction control.
You would need to have the body computer scanned for trouble codes to proceed.

My '99 Malibu is shifting hard when it starts to get warm. I've taken to a tranny shop and they couldn't find anything wrong. someone mentioned about the motor mounts? how serious is this? and will it...


the shift linkage to transmission may be out of adjustment. on the chevy malibus the tps ( throttle position sensor ) has a big effect on how tranny shifts. check tps first. it is on side of throttle body, at the throttle plate.

2006 Malibu Maxx ss hard shifting/Check engine light


There is no dip stick. Its most likely not the fluid. These malibu's use the first generation GM LAN system. Check the data cord comming from the transmission near the mechanical shifting linkage. Alot of these shifting issues and errors are from a break in the wiring causing bad data to be sent/rvcd to/from the computer control module- these cars are electronically controled shifted, not mechanical.
