changing the fluid on the transmission if it already has a problem might make the problem worse. you probably dont need a whole transmission. the one you have is fixable. it would be necessary to take the vehicle to your nearest transmission shop for further diagnosis to determine if the problem is internal or external. They might tell you that the transmission would have to be removed from the vehicle in order to determin the problem. if so, most shops offer to do this at a reasonable price.

Where is transmission fluid dipstick to add transmission fluid to 2005 Chevy Malibu?

There should be two dipsticks under the hood on a Malibu. One will be plainly marked "OIL" or "ENGINE OIL." The other one is your transmission fluid. This is assuming your Malibu has automatic transmission. If your Malibu has a manual transmission (stick shift), then there is no dipstick for transmission fluid -- manual trannies get lubrication from the engine oil.
