My coolant light had been coming on for a while now but. I didn't think that it was that big of a deal that I just needed to get it reset at the dealership because I had my coolant flushed at 50,000 since that wonderful eyeroll Dex-Cool crapped up my radiator with grey gunk.

I got my oil changed last week and got told that i had a leaky gasket. So I found the TSB's and took it to the dealership and they wanted $100 just to look at it. So I said screw them and went back to the place the changed my oil to have it fixed.

So they replaced my Lower intake gaskets, upper gasket, thermostat, and gasket and gave me another oil change which i just had last week.

"Check engine oil Level" light kept coming on. Engine oil level was fine (check it at every gas fill up). While having traction control system serviced, the mechanic found a leaky intake manifold gasket. This separates the oil from the coolant (it's a bad thing if they mix). Gasket was replaced (took about 8 hours). I noticed a few Malibu complaints about this issue - if your oil light blinks on, but you have enought oil, have this gasket inspected (and get your checkbook ready).
