How do you test the alternator in a 99 Chevy Malibu?
You will need a digital multimeter that can measure DC voltage for an accurate reading. Open the hood and connect the positive and negative multimeter leads to the positive and negative battery posts. Turn on the multimeter and make note of the battery voltage you have before starting the engine. The battery needs to be fully charged to get an accurate alternator reading. A fully charged battery should read 12.68 volts. Assuming the battery is healthy and fully charged, start the engine and let it idle. Make note of the multimeter reading. A healthy alternator should read 14.2 Volts. Now with engine still running, turn on the headlights and turn on the heater blower on high. Multimeter reading should stay above 13.8 volts. If you are below these numbers you may have a tired alternator.

I am 99% positive that your Malibu does not have a cam belt, but instead has a cam chain. Look in your owner's manual or call your local Chevy dealer to be 100% sure.

I recently replaced the alternator on my 99 Malibu. It is fairly easy. First loosen the belt using a 3/8 breaker bar on the belt tensioner. Using a 15mm socket, remove the bolt from the front and side plus a nut on the side/rear (use deep socket or wrench). Remove the single wire bolted to the back of the alternator and unplug the wire harness and the whole thing should be ready to remove. Installation… Read More
