Question about Chevrolet Malibu

1 Answer

Service esc, traction

My 2009 Chevrolet Malibu acted like it was having transmission problems. I took it to a transmission place and they said nothing was wrong with my transmission. It shifts back and fourth from 5 to 6 and runs no lower than 2100 rpms in 5 and 6. 1-4 shift fine and the rpms are normal also. What could it be?

Surely its the gear box? Have you checked the dip stick for the gear oil?

    I haven't personally. I'm not sure what all they did at the transmission place. Surely they would have. The check engine light code says I need a solenoid?

SOURCE: 2003 BUICK REGAL TRANSMISSION PROBLEM.

This is a common problem on some GM cars. There is a pressure control valve in the side cover of the transmission that needs to be replaced. The transmission does not have to be rebuilt. You will need to get a side cover gasket also.

the trans computer has seen a problem possible a bad sensor, or an internal problem, and puts it into a safe mode, or limp home mode , it wont shift , it will stay in 3rd gear, this way this reduces the possibility of further damage trans damage, when you turn the ignition off and back on it resets the tcm, my advice is to take it to your local dealer, they can diag your trans as they know the product, i dont advise pep boys, or discount auto parts.

What does it mean in my 2008 Chevrolet Malibu the esc service light is on and it say traction is off


Quite common fault, bad sensor or a short in that system. Sometimes just cleaning the connectors on and around the wires and fuse will cure it. But it will need checking.

My car is saying service ESC


That light means that the computer control module has detected a fault in the Electronic stability control system and it turned on the light to alert you. Right now the system is turned off for your safety. You now need the system scanned for the fault code that is set in the control modules memory.

How to Turn off Service Traction Control and ESC messages


I had this problem with my 2007 HHR. I drove away with the service engine and the service traction light on. The car was stuttering through the gears. I took it back and they checked it. They disconnect some wires while they change the oil and one was loose. The service engine turned off but the service traction stayed on. We disconnected the battery for 3 minutes and it fixed the problem. Some of those other guys spent up to 300 dollars to fix the problem. Hope it works out for you.
