2005 Chevy Malibu Engine size = 3.9Question = I have an automatic transmission and my vehicle will not engage into reverse. When put into reverse it just idles. It will go in drive and lags in low. Any suggestions?

Your transmission has an internal problem. There is no electrical fault that will cause these problems. Possible parts such as a low roller clutch, sunshell, etc. This would need to have the transmission removed from your Malibu, taken apart and look for the failure. Depending on the shop you use, they will either sell you a rebuilt trans or fix yours.

Replace the cam sensor too, than check all the wiring. There, hows that.
