Chevy Malibu clunking noise

Chevy Malibu clunking noise

If you own a 2008-12 Chevrolet Malibu and experience a Chevy Malibu clunking noise, or pop, snap, creak when braking, turning or driving on uneven surfaces, this may be the fix for you. Shops report that the engine cradle mounting washers may be contacting the frame rail. Look under the vehicle and measure the distance between washers and the frame rail. They must be 5mm away. If not, loosen the engine cradle bolts and center the entire engine cradle to achieve the 5mm gap. Then tighten to spec and get the vehicle aligned.
