Having problems with your 2004 Chevrolet Malibu ?

Hello everyone, was wondering if someone could describe possible reasons for the some of the issues we are having with our Malibu. a) We can no longer down shift to 2nd or 1st gear. When we go to 3rd gear and press the down shift button on the shifter, nothing happens. Dealer says it will cost $100 / hr for inspection to see what's going on. b) When we fill up our gas tank, the fuel guage still says empty. Then suddenly after a quarter tank, the fuel guage seems to work fine. Could this be a pro

Answers :

1st Have someone look at the linkage under the hood while moving the shifter thru the position. The vehicle does NOT need to be running to do this. Probably better if not. 2nd Fuel gauge. Sounds like the sending unit is sticking. 3rd the clunking noise. Have the rack and pinion. mounts and bushings checked. Also the tie rod ends. 4th The horn can be replaced They are cheap and could have water in it.
A. take it to a transmission shop. b. yes this would be the sending unit in the tank. c. have the cv joints inspected. in fact while the trans shop is inspecting or repairing, they will have to pull the axles and will be paying attention to the front end. so if there is any front end issues they will see it too. d. replace the horn in the front of the car.
