Chevrolet Says Vehicles May Have a Transmission Glitch

Certain 2018-2019 Chevy Equinox and 2018 Malibu vehicles equipped with a 6-speed automatic transmission may have been built without a transmission case assembly cup plug. 

As a result, lubrication flow within the transmission may be compromised and the transmission will wear prematurely.  

The customer may notice noises or rough or irregular shifting. 

The correction involves transmission replacement. The transmission P/N for the FWD Equinox transaxle is 24267810. The Malibu takes P/N 24280967.
