Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2000 Chevrolet Malibu Owner Comments

problem #1

Malibu 3.1L V6 Ohv 12v

  • Automatic transmission
  • 110,000 miles


My 2000 Chevy Malibu has had issues with pulsations, but we just ignored that because it was not affecting the driving. But now it is having an issue with overdrive/shifting. It will not shift out of second gear, and when I get up to 55mph or so, it is staying at a high 3.5 RPM. This has caused my engine to overheat. We filled it with water/antifreeze to cool it down, but it is the shifting that is continuing to pose the problem.

Does anyone know if there is anything I can do to fix it? If so, how much might it cost?
