With those codes would it be worth cleaning the Mass Air Flow sensor with mass air flow sensor cleaner, and also getting a Throttle body cleaner to clean out the Throttle body? I would hope doing that will bring you a quick fix to get you going again.

2000 chevy malibu wont shift into 3rd gear


Sounds like an electronic pressure switch or electronic governor. Your engine check light should be on or intermittent and it should have a code. A lot of parts stores or transmission repair shop should be able to tell you with a code reader.

It doesn't sound like a solenoid, check the universals and if it's not those, it is more than likely a linkage problem,

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.
