Customer Question
I have. 2014 Mechanic's...

I have. 2014

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '14 GM?

I have a 2014 Malibu. A couple weeks my engine light came on. I brought it into the dealer this evening to get oil changed, tires rotated, and to have engine light code reviewed. They came back and said that the code was P16D0. However after having changed the oil the light went out and didn't come back on. He said it was possibly a faulty intake rocker arm solenoid valve #2. My drive back home took about 30 minutes. I found the light had come back on again. I have to make a 400 mile trip in this car tomorrow! Do you think it is too risky to take the trip in this car now?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you ever changed a tire on this vehicle?

Yes....why?

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Malibu yourself? What have you tried so far?

I explained the entire scenario in my first question!

Hello there,

There is a technical bulletin about this.

Your dealer technicians should know this.

Technically the engine has an internal oil leak where it should not have.

In this drawing, plugs 9 can dislodge, and cause this code.

If the car is still driving normally, then you should be ok to return to the dealer when you are ready.

Hope this helps.

Gary
