First post, ns tried looking all over for this and also found a yes, really old thread yet not lot help. Ns bought one 05 chevy Malibu (LS?), V6 engine, and also only had actually 26k miles. It now has 28k miles. That was involved in a pretty negative rear finish accident that jeopardized the framework integrity in the rear and also muffed up the prior bumper. I obtained it because that a steal. It was sitting for a couple of years so ns imagine dried rot has collection in on few of the hoses but i"ve only had actually to adjust one. Anyway, its shifting an extremely hard in every gears. Besides that it runs favor a dream. I want to knock the end the easy cheap stuff that it can be however i"m not 110% certain on the best method to check trans fluid......Anything to execute with transmission renders me a bit nervous honestly. Say thanks to you ahead of time.
