ok i actually have a 99 mailbu and my cap also just came off, my husband had to litterly pry it off. that's the only way that thing comes off.
I don't have an answer I am also wondering since I went to take mine off today and the inside apparently that has the threads connecting it to the overflow tank stayed on connected and the outer part that you twist came off so now I am stuck with the plug still in and no way to get it out.
I had the same problem with my 2001 Malibu. The cap is broken and needs to be replaced. not expensive at all.
Remove the coolant from your 1997 Chevy Malibu radiator. Remove the bottom radiator hose. Run water through the top of the radiator allowing it to run out the bottom.

The radiator doesn't have a cap. The overflow reservoir tank has a cap instead. (Tan plastic tank on passenger side)

no such thing !
the radiator drain plug is on the bottom right facing car from front. you may have to remove the sheild to get at it. my 2000 malibu uses a allen wrench to loosen the drain plug for the radiator. good-day !
Drain enough of the radiator to remove the top radiator hose. Remove the hose, then the pipe that the hose connects to. The bottom end of the pipe houses the thermostat.
