Chevy Malibu Transmission Fluid Capacity

Chevrolet Malibu first appeared before the public in 2014. In fact, the model is the first planned restyling of the eighth generation, presented in 2012. It will not be difficult to distinguish the new product from its predecessor, it has stylish elongated headlights with lensed optics and elegant sections of daytime running lights.

The radiator grille has a rather unusual shape, it consists of many small plastic cells and is cut in the upper part by a cover plate with the logo of the American manufacturer. Below, along the edges of the front bumper, are niches with large round fog lamps. In general, the car has received many pleasant cosmetic changes but has not lost its charm and everything is also perfectly recognizable on the road.

Chevy Malibu transmission flush also uses about 10 quarts of fluid to clean and flush out the system.

It is not necessary to check the transmission fluid level. A transmission fluid leak is the only reason for fluid loss. If a leak occurs, take the vehicle to your dealer and have it repaired as soon as possible.

Change the fluid at the intervals listed in the Maintenance Schedule on page 11-2, and be sure to use the fluid listed in Recommended Fluids and Lubricants.
