2005 malibu trouble going into higher gears,sometimes 40 kms max,engine light is on.suggestions or is the transmission screwed?

Your engine isn't the only thing that can give you a light. That being said the engine may be trying to tell you it is under unusual strain because tranny isn't shifting right. May need tranny flush. Take to a reputable shop.

Replace the antifreeze with Toyota Lifetime, change the diff fluid, some dealers recommend tranny flush at 100K, change the serpentine belt. Be prepared, you have WS tranny fluid, the flush is $200+

Want to know if you recommend a transmission flush for my car? It has over 140,000 miles. What sevices do you recommend?

Yes a tranny flush would be great. I would recommend Either Going out and purchasing a new tranny filter, gasket and Transmission fluid from your local Auto parts store and doing it yourself, CHEAPEST. Or going to your local Valvoline to have it flushed. Cost is around $100

Changing transmission fluid - waste of money or not?

90k kms is about 60k miles, so yes I would recommend a trans fluid flush and refill, not just a trans fluid and filter change. when you drop a trans pan to change the filter you are only replacing at most, one third of the trans fluid. the other two thirds stays in the torque convertor. chrysler is also now using ATF+4 synthetic trans fluid(recommended).

Transmission fluid flushing

In normal situations people do not flush their trannys. Your would normally just lower the pand and change the filter and replace the fluid that came out. If you are not having a problem with your tranny this is what I would suggest. As the fluid gets older the tranny gets "used to" the old oil that is in there. When you add new fluids the new fluid contains detergents that clean the internal parts as they circulate. Unless this is the first time you've been to the recommended mileage for changing the fluid (I.E. 30,000 miles) you could flush it. If you do not know the history of changes, or if you are at, lets say 100,000 miles I wouldn't recommend flushing it. When the new detergents clean out the parts they remove gunk that is actually helping the transmission. Don't get me wrong, you don't want a whole lot of gunk, but you also don't want to remove gunk that for example is holding a pin in place, so the pin falls out (just an example) I hope this wasn't too hard to understand, and I hope I answered your question.

Slow shifting when engine is cold

I have the same problem with my 97.... especially shifting from 3rd to O/D... I've had the tranny serviced and flushed.... It still does it until the tranny warms up.... the tranny's in them are temperature picky!!!!! It's the nature of the beast!!! Wait until spring and everything will be good until next winter!!! If you're really concerned with it you can put a "cold front" on it or block half (NO MORE THAN HALF) of the tranny cooler with cardboard thru the winter months
