These are complex things. The best solution is a local repair or transmission shop. Once they start slipping, the problem usually gets worse quickly causing more damage. The best is get it looked at immediately

1998 malibu transmission slipping when it is cold


Sounds like a servo seal (o-ring) in the trans itself. If the seal leaks, it will not allow the proper pressure to build in the circuit that engages bands and clutches. I see a trans rebuild in your future.

I can't figure out where to put power steering fluid in my 2004 chevrolet malibu


the 2004 malibu does not have a place to put transmission fluid it has a electric power steering system and does not use fluid, if you are having a problem with the power steering light chimming and lighting up this is under a recall that chevy has obligated to fix. So if your car is doing this take it to your local chevy dealership and have them to repair it for you. Hope this helps.

Inexpensive way to increase horsepower in 2004 chevy malibu maxx


What your asking for is a way to cheat the computer. What little you gain isnt going to be worth it once the catalytic converts fails because of it and you have to spend hundreds to replace it.

Also if you were to put one of those performance chips in then your goingto stress the transmission and it too will fail.

We get repairs like this all the time because people arnt aware of the ramifications of putting more stress on things. Chevys already have weak transmissions and are always in for repairs.

I do not recommend you do anything.

My 1998 Chevrolet Malibu will not go into drive possibly due to the transmission overheating. Once the engine cools down, I am able to put into drive. Also the gears tend to slip.


Likely you are looking at this backwards. Slipping causes a ton of heat. Slipping is caused by worn seals inside the transmission that allow pressure loss and partial application of drive clutches which then slip. Only way to fix this is a rebuild. I know this is not what you wanted to hear but that's just the way it works!!!

my 99 Malibu is doing the same thing... it turned out to be a transmission pressure regulator. $400 it was fixed.
