Question about 1997 Chevrolet Malibu
Don't know what part of the country you're in, but Autozone, Checker, Advance Autoparts and perhaps others often will scan computer codes for free. Dealers will charge about $100 for a diagnostic fee to scan codes. You might end up paying that when you get the car fixed anyway, but going to a car parts store for a free scan might let you know if the problem is serious or not.
Sometimes something as simple as the gas cap not being tight enough will cause the "check engine light" to come on.

The Engine Check light signifies your vehicle's onboard computer has identified an abnormality in the engine/emission systems.
If the light goes out, then the computer has recorded the fault but it was not significant to remain lit.
If however, the Engine Check light is now permanently lit....this means the computer has identified an issue that needs resolving.
If the latter applies, then you should have your computer scanned for codes at your local Chev dealership. The computer will identify the offending component/s within minutes.

with just a fluid and filter change it is 7.4 qts. heres how to check it!! jack up car get it as level as possible, start car and let run, get under car when running and take out the plug just in back of tranny pan. if car is not running you will lose fluid, so make sure its running. before removing plug, go thru all gears and end back in park, if fluid just seeps out you are ok!! if it pours out it is to full.place pan to catch fluid,to add the red cap on top of tranny under hood on drivers side about 2 feet down, it is under exhaust on v6. use a tranny funnel to reach hole to fill.
