  • Rpm drop and go up going down hill ?

    2011 malibu. Noticed today after changing my air filter / spark plugs in the last week when I go down a hill the rpm will drop them go back up to where it was at 1-2 times. I did also disconnect battery to clean the terminals. What does that mean? Is the car down shifting? It does it with cruise control on and off. The speed is around 45 miles per hour. Thoughts?

  • Fluid film on rubber hose ?

    Got fluid film on a rubber hose. Looks like a air conditioning one. High pressure with crimped fittings. Would that cause issues? Online says it won't harm oil resistant rubber. Is car hoses oil resistant? I cleaned it up right away

  • 2011 malibu transmission relearn ?

    2011 Chevy malibu 2.4 liter flex fuel 6 speed automatic transmission. I disconnected my battery terminals day before transmission fluid change to clean the terminals of corrosion and now I'm getting random shift flares once or twice a week. I talked to the dealer and they said it could take a few dozen drive cycles to relearn how I drive. It's been a month and a half. Only reason I changed it was I asked them to check the condition of the fluid after I bought the car from them and recommended changing it so I did. I wanted to do preventative maintenance to insure my car lasts a long time. Thoughts?

  • Rpm delay after shifting?

    rpm delay after shifting.seems like my car when it shifts sometimes the rpms will stay at the point for a second or two before dropping. Sometimes the rpm goes up a little like 100 rpm after I feel the car shift then drop. Once a week at least I'll get one shift flare too. I disconnected my battery a day before fluid change in transmission and dealer told me it could be several dozen drive cycles to relearn how I drive. It's been over a month now.

  • 2011 malibu adaptive driving relearn?

    Drive a 2011 malibu 2.4 liter flex fuel 6 speed automatic transmission. I disconnected my terminals a day before I got transmission fluid change. Clean the corrosion off terminals. Since then once a week a get a random shift flare. I contacted the dealer and they said it could take a few dozen drive cycles to relearn how I drive. Problem is I try to drive the same but it's hard when sometimes you have to give more gas. I did tonight and it did it again. Any thoughts? Been at least 800 miles since I disconnected terminals to clean

  • Transmission fluid change?

    Have a 2011 malibu 2.4 liter flex fuel 6 speed automatic with 119 thousand miles. To my knowledge the fluid in transmission has never been changed according to the car fax.I had the dealer I got it from check the level after I got it cause I wanted to see the condition and level of the fluid and it was at the right level but said it was dirty. They shown me a sample and it didn't smell burnt. They recommended changing it. I've heard mixed reviews about changing fluid that may of never been changed or places that use a flush machine. What's your take on it?

  • Car lunged before complete stop?

    Car revs up a little before complete stop. Like maybe 1-300 rpm. Car lunged forward and could hear the engine reving up. Only did it once. Not much at all. 2011 malibu. I asked my girlfriend who has a 2015 cruze and hers does it too. Am I over thinking it? I just noticed it today while with her. Just got the car a month and half ago

  • Rpm while driving?

    Noticed today when I accelerated harder than usual. Usually don't but car was closer than I thought. rpms where around 3000 rpm and then it shoots up a couple hundred and then drops down after that it shifts. The car shifts fine though. Just has worried. 2011 malibu 2.4 with 6 speed automatic transmission. I might be over thinking it. Don't the newer cars have adaptive throttle that adjusts to how you drive usually?

    Thanks for your time and hope I'm making sense

Doesn't seem to have done any damage. Pulled out to get off sidewalk with bumper heard the scraping. Does that cause any problems? The car drives fine and could that hurt the radiator?
