Question about 1999 Chevrolet Malibu

2 Answers

Automatic transmission Hello there. My 1999 chevy malibu was garaged for 11 months and now is having some transmission problems. It shifts too early from P to R and to D and it makes a noise as it hits something when it desengage from P. Shifting from D to R and 1 to 2 to 3 and to D is not a problem. The problem seems to be engaging from P to R or D. Also after about a minute it starts driving you could feel when it goes from one gear to the other (only one time after it starts driving and the other gears shift perfect). The car has about 65,000 miles and it is in perfect condition otherwise. Any idea as to what it may be or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    My 1999 malibu has 80k on it and just started having transmission problems the mechanics i have taken it to dont know if its the whole transmission. it has trouble once in gear going up and often RPMs exceed 4000 and speed doesnt increase. does this mean i need a whole new transmission? i bought it used a year ago for 2500 and cant afford anything above that which is the cost of a transmission. how much could i get for the car alone?

My 99 Malibu is doing the same thing... it turned out to be a transmission pressure regulator. $400 it was fixed.

How does one check transmission oil in 2005 chevy malibu maxx


You don't yourself. The lube change shop or garage can do this (requires special tools or removal of the pan). for a 2005 you're likely in need of a flush. some models can have a dipstick installed, but its not necessary. Unless you have a serious leak of fluid or shifting issues, it's rare to lose fluid. If you are having issues, then start with a flush and inspection BY A REPUTABLE GARAGE. do not use a dealer or transmission shop, they will always find ways to seprate you from your $$$

It feels like my transmission is skipping gear and or shifting early what could this be


Automatic transmission, I assume, check the fluid level, as if it gets low, the transmission will slip. If that is not the problem, look in your owners manual th see where the transmission control module is located and you may need to take it to a garage to have it tested.

99 Chevy Malibu - auto trans - no dipstick


You have what is called a closed cased transmission. You have to crawl underneathe to get to the tranny and remove the upper bolt close to the side of the case (more towards the bottom of the transmission). When you fill it, you fill it till it starts to drip out of that hole.

Looking for a picture for you.

Check engine light came on and now shifts hard from park to drive


The engine light is telling you, you have a transmission problem which sound like a shift solenoid. If you take the care to a local garage or dealer you can have them scan the vehicle for the problem code, which will tell you which solenoid is bad.
