This question stumps a lot of people, but the process is really easy. You should have a silver object called a key, stick it into a slot which should be located on the right side of the steering wheel. Turn the key clockwise until you hear a "VROOM", if you do, your car is started. If you're not quite sure if it's started, with your right foot, step on a long object on the floor of the car, if you hear the "VROOM" again, it's definitely started. Hope this info helps ;)

Trying the ignition usually works for me... wanna be more specific?

Where is the fuel shutoff switch located on a 97 Chevy Malibu?

Fuel cut off/ Inertia switches are a Ford/ Mazda feature only. The only type of fuel shut off switch on a 97 Malibu is the ignition lock and key. If you're trying to find this switch because the car won't start and it has no fuel pressure then its not too unlikely that the fuel pump may be bad. They die all the time on Malibu, Alero and Grand Am.

Does a 98 Chevy Malibu fuel pump work in a 97 Chevy Malibu?

If they are the same engine size, they are interchangeable. I would not put a fuel pump from a V6 on a 4 cylinder, and vica-versa. The Malibus from 97-02 all have interchangeable parts
