The puttering could be faulty spark plugs ....this is one of many problems it could be I would give it a good tune up and have a shop check your injectors ....quick fix that sometimes works is filling it up with premium gas and see if it goes away

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 $$$

Does the 2005 chevy malibu use synthetic oil

Hi, you should use energy conserving oil from Mobil One or ELF synthetic that comes from a container stating, "designed for use in GM vehicles". You will save money on gas, on oil changes, sludge will NOT form inside the engine, and everything will last longer.
