SOURCE: how do i replace the front caliper seal on 06

while the seals in the calipers are replaceable, its probably easier just to get a new/re manufactured caliper. if for any reason the seals don't work perfectly you could lose control of the vehicle when attempting to stop. with that said i'll try to explain the best i can how to replace the seals in the calipers for that vehicle.

1. jack up the front of the vehicle, place on jackstands and remove the front wheels, make sure the parking brake is on
2. unbolt the caliper and unbolt the brake line from the caliper and take caliper to a clean bench
3. remove the dust boot retaining ring on the caliper that holds the boot to the caliper itself
4. using a blowgun with a rubber tip apply low pressure compressed air where the brake line was bolted to the caliper to push the piston out of the bore (be carefull and ready because the piston may shoot out with some force)
5. when the piston comes out you will need to replace the dust boot and the seal so remove the boot and seal carefully so you don't scratch the piston ( the seal is actually in the caliper piston bore hole)and throw out the old seal and boot.
6. inspect all the surfaces and make sure there are no imperfections at all on the piston, the piston bore, or the caliper, if the surfaces are marred in anyway, replace the caliper, if they are good, using brake cleen and compressed air clean all parts then dry them
7. get the new seal and lubricate with DOT 3 brake fluid
8. install new seal into the caliper bore
9. apply a thin coat of DOT 3 brake fluid to the piston itself
10. install bottom half the the caliper piston into the caliper bore.
11. install new dust boot seal onto the piston
12. compress the piston to the bottom of the caliper bore
13. fully seat the dust boot seal into the caliper and install retaining ring
14. reinstall on vehicle (make sure to use a NEW copper washer on the brake line to caliper fitting) and bleed the braking system while checking for leaks.

repeat process for the other side.

if the caliper leaks at all from the piston after seal replacement, replace the caliper.

make sure you properly bleed the brakes before attempting to drive your car.

*these direction were extracted from personal experience and manufacturer information*

any other questions just ask!

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.

SOURCE: 2006 Malibu Maxx remotes stopped working. Replace

sometimes after replacing dead batteries in remotes the remote resets itself to a different code to that of the vehicle, ie the last time you used the remote it sent a signal to the system, lets say for argument sake, 123456, then the system would open when you pressed the button again as this would clarify the 123456 and close, but when you remove the battery or it stays dead for a certain period of time ( different modles vary) it will reset to factory code it might be 000000, and your vehicle is waiting for 123456 to open it, so what you have to do is reprogram the remotes to the system, you will have to ask the dealership in what sequence you have to do it, they will tell you how to reset the remotes, sorry its long winded but better explain why first so you understand the reason behind the remote, the numbers are just indications on how it works, no numbers are seen obviously this is just an example on how the system comunicates with the remotes hope this helps, most of all hope you get it lol

2006 Malibu Maxx SS transmission.Only drives in M and reverse.


It might have gone into safe mode but I would have expected safe mode to permit the vehicle only into low and reverse but your car might be different. Is the problem accompanied by dashboard lights staying on that did not stay on before. I would say that this is definitely one for a garage mechanic as , padricularly if dash lights are on, it would need diagnostic equopment to identify the problem

Good Luck

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.

I cannot get the Change Oil Soon message to reset on a Pontiac G6


Chevrolet Malibu, Malibu Maxx 2004-06; 2006 HHR, Cobalt, Pontiac G6, Solstice
Turn ignition to run engine off. Display OIL LIFE RESET in the Driver Information Center (DIC). Press and hold the ENTER button for at least one second. An ACKNOWLEDGED’ display message will appear for three second or until the next button is pressed. This will tell you the system has been reset. Turn the key to OFF. If the “CHANGE ENGINE OIL” message comes back on when you start your vehicle, the engine oil life system has not reset. Repeat the procedure.

2006 Malibu Maxx SS transmission /engine issue


good afternoon and welcome to fixya
all right first of you you need to go and get a second opinion from another shop, i can tell you that you do not need another engine, sounds like a solenoid on the transmissionis not getting the proper pressure, these transmissions are very sensitive to fluid changes and pressures. i would take the vehicle to a well known transmission shop and not tell them that the dealership said you need a new engine. just tell them the problem your having and let them know that that is a new transmission, could just be fluid is a little low. good luck and let me know the outcome and ill try to help you more.
