2001 Chevy Malibu I just rebuilt

It may be possible that flushing the transmission fluid is your problem. Was the fluid really dark and had a slightly burnt smell to it? If the answer is yes, then you probably had an issue with the transmission and didn't know it and the particles suspended in the transmission fluid were what was giving it enough friction to make the shifts, by changing out the fluid you removed all the particles and now the transmission slips and won't shift into certain gears. Just a guess given the information you have provided. I would look at the transmission for the issue.

I have my service engine soon light that comes on and off periodically while driving. I have 3 codes that come up 1DTC U1040 Loss of Class 2 Communications with ABS 2)DTC U1088 Loss of Communications

Codes that light check engine lamp are emissions/engine performance related only. Your DRL and SDM both talk to the ECM for inputs (they need to know if its running), but they dont affect the engine or tell the engine module to change how it runs. Your ABS can affect how the engine runs as it sends wheel speed information that is used to adjust engine output, transmission shifting, and fuel/timing in some circumstances. Check the ABS module for signs of water or oil affecting it, or water in the connector plug. Also check the harness where it leaves the module to make sure it isnt rubbing thru anywhere you can see. GM ABS modules are not uncommon failure items, however mostly they set module fault codes or motor amperage/function codes. Id start with further diagnostics of the ABS. NOTE: using generic OBD2 scan mode will show you only codes that are check engine lamp related if you want to be sure. Enhanced scan mode shows you any and all, and some of them simply have nothing to do with the engine lamp being on.

How do you replace cabin filter on 01 chevy malibu

I don’t know what these other people are reading, what they think you’re driving, why they’re posting directions for an Equinox, or pictures for anything but the 2001 Malibu does NOT have a cabin air filter!
It did NOT come from the factory with one or a pace to put one.

Source: I own a 2001 Malibu LS and have turned almost every nut and bolt on that car.

2001 Malibu cabin air filter?

Contrary to what the other person wrote, the 2001 Malibu does NOT have a cabin air filter.
It came from from the factory with NO provisions for one.

Replace rear bushing in 2001 Malibu

First change the wheel/tire with the spare or another wheel tire to check for any change in shake.If the shake is in the seat it is usually in the rear,if it's in the steering wheel,then the front. If the wheels are balanced all bushing could be loose and it will still be a smooth "no shake" ride. Don't forget if brake discs and brake drums are out of balance no amount of tire balancing will correct a shake. Also there is static and dynamic wheel balancing machines.You always want a motorized "dynamic" wheel balance done.

Chevy Malibu 2001 with 89,000 miles idling too high during park

Back to the mechanic - sounds like either an IAC motor or TPS sensor is the problem, but also could be the throttle cable (sticking leaving the throttle not fully closed).

I think i know the issue. I have had it happen to me it is your security system failing. Your car is on the list year make and model... I found a module that you can install yourself and it will bypass it allowing your car to start everytime.. Check it out and ask questions they are very helpful. Also for some reason if it does not work they will refund you %100 of your money.. this literally saved my car.

2001 chevy malibu - lights and radio turn on with key but when turning key to "ignition" won't get anything but a "click". No engine turn over. Tried to jump it - no. Direct to cables - no start

I have the exact same car and had that exact problem!!!! Its the security system failing. I took it in and they wanted a ridicules amount of money to fix it. I did a ton of research and found a module that you can install yourself and it will bypass it and let the car start every time. I did mine 5 years ago and i havent had a problem since. Check it out they have great customer service and if for some reason it doesnt work they refund you 100% i hope this helps you out i know how frustrating it is http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.com/ Do It Yourself GM Security bypass
