CHANGE THE THERMOSTAT
Make sure you don't have air in the hoses!!
You may also need so flush your radiator. Sometimes it gets clogged and wont allow water to circulate. But can usually tell this before hand as it will overheat then cool down continously as the junk tends to break loose once in a while.
head gasket leak or thermostate needs to be replaced
Rods and Rocker arms were the problem with my Malibu after changing lifters
One of the most common electrical problems with the 1999 Chevrolet Malibu is with the ignition switchÊhaving to be replaced. Another problem is the passlock sensor failing.
Could be your electric fan on the radiator is shot, or the relay is bad.
I have a 2000 Malibu and I am having the same problem. There is an electrical problem. I have yet to figure out how to solve it, but turning on the AC blows the fuse. Ive had the instrument cluster replaced, so dont go and do that, because your car will still do the same thing. Your BCM (Body Control Module) may need to be replaced, or it is just a bad wiring. If you have replaced your battery, that may be a part of the problem. I know this information is not much, but hopefully it will help. I have a 2000 Malibu and I am having the same problem.

Do the electric cooling fans kick on?
if the pump and thermostat have been replaced on a 2001 malibu and it overheats and the heat doesnt work now but the air does. do it need bleeding still , will air in the line still cause that problem...
On my CV axles in my 99 Malibu they run at 130 a pop, and they can definitely be a serious problem, all the way to the point they can break or crack and cause you thousands of dollars worth of damage
All hoses on the recovery tank go to the radiator.
Check plugs, wires, distributor cap Do a compression test to see if problem is internal
There have been problems with the odometer displaying an error but no recalls for it. The instrument panel has to be repaired or replaced to fix the problem.
Alternator is not charging. Have it tested and/or replaced.
Yes it will. That happened to my wifes car. The mechanic replaced the pump and it still had the same problem. Replaced the fuel pump regulator and still the same problem. The problem was the ignition switch was shorted and the car thought it was being stolen and shut off the fuel pump. Hope it helps!
The head gasket on a 1999 Chevy Malibu is replaced by removing the coolant, intake manifold, and retaining bolts. The cylinder head can then be removed, the gasket replaced, and everything reassembled.
My 1998 Malibu had the same problem. The reason that it is on is because your brake sensor is located in your wheel bearing, and most likely your wheel bearing is worn out. I replaced both front wheel bearings and the ABS light is no longer on.
Is the check engine light "ON" and if so have you had it diagnosed? Did you replace the fuel filter when you replaced the pump?
any service on cooling system is through the recovery tank for radiator.
the only thing i could find is check for water in the lens
If it is making a rapid clicking as compared to the slower intermittent clicking. One of your turn signal bulbs need to be replaced, normally it will only do this when the bulb is not working at all.
check your fuel pressure.
The common fix for this problem is dirty control swithc on the environment console. I toolk mine apart and cleaned it to fix this same problem in my Malibu
Its the Primary o2 Sensor (pre-cat), needs to be replaced
Your master cylinder seals are bad, and the unit needs either to be rebuilt or replaced. Replaced is better.
