Question about 2005 Chevrolet Malibu
Engine oil has nothing to do with how the transmission shifts. The 24% you talk about is probably is the remaining oil life remaining until you need to change the oil again based on GM's requirements. There should be another dipstick going to the transmission that has transmission fluid that would affect it however. I would check that and make sure it is red in color and after the engine is warmed up and you check the tranny oil while on a level surface and the car running in neutral to make sure it is up to the corret level. If the tranny oil is dark or smells burnt, it could mean you need a transmission flush and/or the tranny could be going bad.

NO. 24% is Engine Oil Life. You need the trans checked out.
