the transmission is located on the drivers side of the engine down low, i have an 98 and the dipstick is white, that is if it is clean! usually the tranny is pretty good i heard. I had a hesitation problem, it also jerked at lights when i stopped in D, i did a check over and turned out it was just a spark plug on the rear side of the block, the hardest one to get at go figure. If the tranny is not full then you have to get under the car and pull a small bolt from the side of the tranny, making sure the car is level you add fluid in with a funnel and hose till it spills out, then it is full, it can be messy.
hope this helps

I am having almost the same problems with my Malibu. When I come to a stop almost everytime within 3 seconds, it stalls. Sometimes if I am quick enough and put it into neutral I'm ok, but not all the time, it will stall in neutral as well. I have changed the Throtle Posisition Sensor, air filter, fuel filter even took out the auto start. Please let me know if you find a fix...Thanks
