A large number of people recommend sodium silicate - sold as "liquid glass in the US I believe. This is also used as an egg preservative. An excellent user discussion of sodium silicate and other materials can be found here. I'm in New Zealand. Here we have a material named "Soldrit Super Soda" which has been on the market for 40+ years (ask me how I know ...
While externally the '05 would fit in the '06 (same dimensions, bolt-up, etc), my understanding is the internals are different. In '06 they "redid" the engine internally, which means the 05 will not work for you. You can use the engine out of an 07, but you'd need to swap your '06 injectors into the other engine.
If it is one of the veins that is cracked, in an emergency it is sometimes possible to cut the vein and then fold both ends over a few times to seal them. A pair of long nose pliers is usually all you need to do this.
Putty/epoxy works but here's a handy tip I picked up from my materials professor to ensure that the crack doesn't propagate: Drill small holes at the ends of the crack to arrest its growth before using metal putty/epoxy to seal the existing crack. My dad used to own a Maxima that developed a crack in the radiator's aluminum head. The mechanic he took ...
If you can see and access the crack, a two-part epoxy or something like JB-Weld can be great for a temporary fix. This page shows the process on a metal radiator for a race car, but your fix would be similar. Clean the site of the repair, and rough up the surface with fine sand paper, especially if working on plastic. Mix the two-part epoxy and generously ...

When the ECM is powered on the SRS system and your ECM communicate with eachother. As a safety measure the computer will throw a code to alert you to a fault in the system. Generally if you don't have an ...
I have had a few transmissions crap out, need to be replaced. Sounds like you now have one also. I assume you are not changing it yourself so whatever shop you take it to will be able to verify this for you. Final diagnosis will have to be with mechanic who actually looks at your car.
After consulting some online databases (google.com), special dealer equipment is needed to program the remote for a 2012 Malibu. Some GM cars to have a manual procedure to learn remotes, but this doesn't appear to be one of them.
The plain white connector with two wires, black and brown with a white stripe, go to a switch in the seat belt buckle. This turns off the warning light on the dash. The yellow connector is for the side impact airbag inflator located in the outer seatback side bolster. These wires are carefully protected and colored yellow to let all who see then to work ...

Check the spider injection assembly I had multiple cracked fuel lines . They were dumping fuel into the plenum & not into the cylinder .
The reason this occurs is to take care of the humidity in the vehicle while your defroster is running. MANY older vehicles have this as a common function when your defroster comes on. It's odd though that the temperature setting doesn't change your AC temp. Chevy's 2011's were all CAN BUS computer controlled systems, it might just be a glitchy computer ...
