The engine fuse box is easy to access. This will allow you to complete electrical troubleshooting with reliability.

Some things are more problematic on the 2004 Chevrolet Malibu LS. You will have to remove a large panel from under the vehicle for access to the petcock. This will require you to contend with gravity as you complete.

This vehicle does not come equipped with a transmission fluid dipstick. You will have to take your vehicle into a dealer to check the fluid level.
