Asked by Dec 11, 2014 at 08:22 AM about the 2011 Chevrolet Malibu LTZ

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was noticing my car not driving as fast as
it used to. It has been slow. Current mileage
is at 76984 && my scheduled oil change
was supposed to have been at 71633.
Today on the freeway people kept passing
me up. The car felt like it was going fast but
all of a sudden the car felt drained the
speed was decreasing and I was pushing
the gas but the car felt as if it was dying. It
stayed at 40 mph. Any advice what
happened?

So you have about 10k miles on the current oil? So not good... The oil might be turning in sludge inside your engine.
