To change the transmission fluid on your Chevy Malibu 2005, first, pull off the pan, drain the fluid, and replace it.
A 2004 Chevy Malibu uses standard Dexron III transmission fluid. This is a widely available fluid used by many GM vehicles.
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.
200 Chevy Malibu has a sealed system, so it does not have a dipstick to check the transmission fluid. If there are issues, one has to check the fluid while the car is running.
The transmission fluid capacity is 6.9 quarts (it requires Dexron III fluid).
The transmission fluid capacity of a 2004 Chevy Malibu is approximately 7.5 quarts. The actual capacity varies depending on the amount of fluid in the torque converter.
I used up to 4 on my 1998 malibu.
as long as it is an automatic transmission, you put ATF in
Can a 1998 Chevy Malibu LS hold more than 6.9 quarts of transmission fluid/or how many quarts does it take to fill up the transmission after being drained?
If it's not leaking it doesn't need additional fluid.
I would cahange it at 50,000 miles.
Yes, and that will cause shifting issues.
if its an automatic change fluid filter in transmission!!
