My 2009 Chevy Malibu is making this gurgling noise and noticed some transmission fluid on the garage floor.
My car has 113000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Hello - the gurgling noise is most likely a cooling system issue - perhaps overheating that has not yet caused a failure. Check coolant level (engine cold), and the transmission fluid level as well. Look for clear, pinkish (not dark) color, and relatively clear trans fluid. I would recommend a engine noise inspection and a leaking fluids inspection performed by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
