This can be a valve body issue in the trans or can be sighs of a blow clutch pack. This could also be a simple as a cable problem Start by getting a repair manual for your vehicle and look up the shift cable.

SOURCE: Change headlight on 2008 Chevy Malibu

Hi there,

Well first you can please follow the below steps -
1. Make sure the ignition key is in the off position and the headlight switch is off. Release the hood latch.
2. Open the hood and locate the top of the headlight assembly where you intend to change the headlight. If a plastic shroud is present, locate the center bolt and remove it with a ratchet and a socket. Lift the shroud out of the way to access the headlight assembly retaining brackets. Some later models may feature a snap-release shroud requiring no tools to remove.
3. Locate the brackets on the top rear of each side of the headlight assembly. Lift them all the way up to align the hole on the bottom of each bracket to the retaining tabs on the assembly.
4. Pull the assembly forward away from the Malibu, but be careful not to scratch the bumper. There are three guide pins that require unseating. The guide pins are what aim the headlights and it may take some wiggling to get the pins from their seats.
5. Support the assembly with one hand and then reach behind the unit with the other. The low beam bulb is on the outside, the high beam bulb is on the inside. You can also replace the parking light if desired. Locate the wire harness connection. Un-clip the wire harness from the back of the bulb socket. Remove the bulb by turning it counterclockwise 1/3 of a turn to align the release tabs of the ring and the assembly. Wiggle the bulb out of the assembly.
6. Place the latex gloves on your hands before opening the package of the replacement bulb. Oil in our skin can damage the glass bulbs of halogen headlights.
7. Carefully insert the new bulb into the ring and then align the tabs of the ring to the tabs of the headlight assembly. Push inward and then twist clockwise 1/3 of a turn to lock the bulb in place. Reattach the wire harness. Rest the headlight assembly inside its cavity and test the operation of the headlight before securing the headlight assembly in place. Be sure to turn the lights and ignition back off.
8. Align the three guide pins to their seats and push the assembly back into them gently until they snap into place. Replace the retaining brackets by pushing them downward to lock into place. Replace shroud, if applicable. Remove the tools and old bulb and close the hood. Post comments for further help or information......

Good Luck!!

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

SOURCE: chevy malibu loud when in reverse

Unless you can't stand the noise my advice is to just leave well enough alone. The fix is to remove the transmission and rebuild it, a very expensive repair.

SOURCE: My 1998 chevy Malibu won't back up. I put it in

make sure trans fluid is full before taking it in for service. check the fluid level with the transmission hot,and the engine idling in park., the fluid level should be in the cross hatch area on the dipstick. make sure not to overfill it. if its low but touching the dipstick add a half quart at a time in the dipstick tube. the fluid level will be hard to read after filling it due to residual fluid in the dipstick tube, just stick in the distick a few times, wiping it clean everytime until you get an accurate reading. if thats not it you will have to have to take it in for service.

I own a 2008 Chevy Malibu and none of my gauges are working. They are all stuck on zero even while I'm driving. How do I fix this problem?


check fuses. did this happen all of the sudden? did you or someone recently change the stereo, reason I ask this is there is a continuous power wire that connects the factory stereo to the guage panel usually a yellow wire, and if it's no longer connected or incorrectly connected then that would cause your gauges not to work

My 2008 chevy malibu wont drive forward it will only move in reverse. What is the problem?


Is it an automatic? If so its most likely to be an electronic shift solenoid. Unless your mechanically inclined do not attempt replacement. I cannot stress that enough. The valve body of a transmission is full of check and release balls as well as cylinders and actuators, not to mention incredibly soft and you cannot scratch it.
