Common problems and easy repairs on a 2010 Malibu

The 2010 Chevrolet Malibu LT is a moderately difficult vehicle to maintain, but shouldn’t be too hard for those experienced in vehicle maintenance. You will have to use many tools to remove many panels, linings, and bolts to access the headlight with reliability. These components can grow tougher to remove as this vehicle ages. You will also have to remove the tail light housing for access to the tail lights. This vehicle does not come equipped with a transmission fluid dipstick. This will make a fluid check a problem.

Some things are easier on the 2010 Chevrolet Malibu LT. Changing the engine air filter is no problem, as you only have to disengage a few fasteners for access. The engine coolant reservoir is easily visible in the engine bay. This will allow you to check and replenish the fluid level on a regular basis. The components of the spare tire are easily accessible in the rear of the vehicle. This keeps the tire and jack kit ready to go in case of emergency.
