The newest Chevy Malibu on the market is the Chevrolet Malibu LTZ Sedan. It is modern, luxious, up to date, and have everything that you could possibly want in a new car.
more then likely it could be the temp, sending unit. or a bad wire to temp, sensor!!
It could have 4, 6 or 8 cylinders.
A handful of things could cause this. But I'd say one of two; Blown Headgasket or a bad intake manifold gasket. Which the engine's of these cars are known for.
follow the wiring and check for a loose/broken wires, most likely on the ground the side
The Chevy Malibu can get between 17 and 22 miles per gallon of gas on the road. It could even get to 26 to 33 miles per galon if you are in a highway.
Could be a brake issue, a bearing issue, a tie rod issue, a CV joint issue. If you are not mechanical yourself, you should take it to a qualified mechanic to have it diagnosed. Any of these left unaddressed can cause more serious issue, some quite unsafe, especially in a Chevy Malibu.
it could be a serpentine belt or accessory belt.
5w-30 is recommended but you could use 10w-30.
If it's a severe vibration, expect a bad mount. If it's very slight, that might just be normal operation of the reciprocating engine.
could you please tell me how to deactivate the alarm system in my 1997 Chevy Malibu. it is driving me crazy. i really don't need it at all.
If the compressor is going out it can cause the belt to squeel as it's harder to turn the pulley when enged, or you could just need a new belt

A warning on the dic showing an engine power reduce, indicates that there is an electrical problem with the Chevy Malibu. These issues could be worn or damaged sensors, wiring issues, a weak battery, engine overheating or stored codes that could be causing the warning.
These lights have 2 different "lights" in each of them. This occurs frequently. Change out the bulb and everything will be working fine once again.
if its a v6 eng it could b a head or intake manifold gasket
Could be a fuse or the wiring in the car
Chevy recommends SAE 5W-30 year round, but SAE 10W-30 could be used in the summer or in warmer regions.
It could be as simple as a stopped up fuel filter.
One way to know that a control arm bushing is bad on a Chevy Malibu is from the noises you will hear when you are driving. You will hear a clunking sound. The steering on the car will also not be as good as it once was. You could also experience drifting of the car as you drive.
if water is in oil,could be a bad headgasket!have it checked out!or a bad intake gasket.
The grinding could be coming from the rear brakes.
could be a bad fuse or ac relay,also if out off coolant ac clutch will not work,
