Question about Chevrolet Malibu
When driving car makes sounds like grinding hard plastic. Not a metal on metal sound. My son drove it to work (25 miles) and when he got to work, put it in park and then decided to move parking stalls and car made loud clunking sounds. I went to tow it home and when we loaded it up on the dolly by the time be got home (25 miles) there was around 1/2 quart of red oil (assuming transmission oil). Never loss of power, slipping, no odors.
Call your dealer they are not made to be towed with wheels on the ground

I am sorry to have to tell you this but it sounds to me like your transmission is shot and will need a rebuild. If you can get it to a transmission shop they will tell you 100% what wrong with it. .

Sometimes collapsed lifters or loose rocker arms can cause knocking sounds in an engine. However, the fact that there was a possible loss of oil pressure and that the knocking gets louder as the rpm's increase, would indicate that there is damage to a connecting rod bearing and possibly the crankshaft. If the latter is the case you are looking at a fairly substantial repair bill.

I wouldn't recommend synthetic oil for a car that appears to have a small leak. Synthetic oil is very thin and will find that smallest of leaks and leave you adding oil all the time. Considering the length of your commute, I'd go with a heavier oil (10W40) or heavier and change the oil every 3000 miles. If the heavier oil doesn't solve your problem, you will need to identify the leak and get it repaired.
