2014 Chevrolet Malibu Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 2014 Chevrolet Malibu

The fuel gauge may not read correctly and/or the Check Engine Light may illuminate with code P0455/P0461 stored for a fuel level sensor issue. These faults may be caused by a fuel vapor line inside the fuel take interfering with the fuel level sensor. If this is found to be the case, repositioned and securing the vapor line should correct this concern. If no fault is found with the fuel vapor line, the fuel level sensor itself may be at fault.

The automatic transmission shifter may fail causing the ignition key to become stuck in the ignition lock cylinder.

Vehicles with a 6speed automatic transmission may develop one or more of the following faults related to a broken 35R clutch wave plate inside the transmission: Illumination of the Check Engine Light with code P0716, P0776, P0717, P0777, P2714, P2715, and/or P02723, loss of reverse gear, slipping or harsh 3rd or 5th gear shift. Removal and dis-assembly of the transmission will be required to replace the broken 35R wave plate. It is also extremely important that all debris from the failed part be cleaned from the transmission while it is disassembled in order to try and prevent future problems.

A switch that automatically controls the operation of the roof panel is not correctly recessed and may be activated accidentally. Any objects or passengers in the open roof area under closure could be crushed or injured as a result. Dealers will replace the surrounding switch trim to recess the switch and correct the problem.

Power assist to the braking system may be lost due to a problem with the vacuum assist, disabling the hydraulic boost assist. If this were to occur increased brake pedal effort would be required to slow and stop the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will update the software in the electronic brake control module to correct this concern. Affected vehicles are equipped with a 2.5L engine with the auto stop/start option.

Certain vehicles equipped with 17 inch front brake rotors are being recalled because during vehicle assembly, brake rotors intended for the rear may have been installed on the front. The rear rotors, while the same diameter, are thinner and may result in a front brake pad detaching from the caliper. Braking ability would be reduced suddenly if a brake pad were to detach. The resulting increased stopping distance would increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the front brake rotors, and install the correct rotors with new brake pads, as necessary to correct this concern.
