All timing chain mechanisms have timing chain tensioners. Check to see that the tensioner mechanism is functioning correctly. Some are tensioned using spring tensioners, some use oil pressure, and some use a combination of both. The 2.4 liter quad 4 engine uses a fairly long timing chain, which wraps around the crank gear, water pump gear, and the 2 cam gears. The chain only grabs 8 teeth of the cam gears, a spring/hydraulic tensioner, to the upper left of the crank gear tensions the chain, but also 3 plastic guides help to hold the chain tight. If the tensioner is worn or the plastic shoes break, and yes they can break, or if the chain or cam gears are worn it is possible for the chain to jump, especially at high revs.
The 2005 Chevy Malibu has a timing chain, not a timing belt.

None. It does not have a timing belt. It has a timing chain.
It does not have a timing belt, it has a chain.
It has no Timing Belt, it has a Timing Chain.
Pushrod engines have a chain. Overhead cam engines have a belt.
It has a chain that should last the life of the engine.
4 cylinders have a belt and v6 has a chain!
On a 1997 Chevrolet Malibu : Both the 2.4 litre four cylinder engine and the 3.1 litre V6 engine have a timing CHAIN
all 4 cylinders have belts, 6 cylinders have a chain.
The 2003 Chevy Malibu does not have a timing belt. It has a chain which should last the life of the engine.
The '97-'01 model Chevy Malibu (both engine types; I-4 (2.4L) and V6 (3.1L)) has a timing chain, NOT a timing belt.
What exactly are you trying to do? Timing is controlled by the computer. Timing marks are on the timing chain gears. I own a 1998 Malibu JJ
No , the 2.4 litre four cylinder engine and the 3.5 and 3.6 litre V6 engines have a timing CHAIN in a 2010 Chevrolet Malibu
On a 2005 Chevrolet Malibu : Both the 2.2 litre four cylinder engine and the 3.5 litre V6 engine have a timing CHAIN
It is your lucky day. The cost will be $0.00. The 2000 Chevy Malibu has a chain and NOT a belt. No maintenance is required.
Depends on what year it is and which engine it has. If it has a pushrod engine in it, it has a timing chain instead of a belt. If it is an overhead cam engine, then it does. Keep in mind that the Malibu was originally a Chevelle model starting in 1964. The Malibu replaced the Chevelle in 1978, so there are a lot of possibilities here.
Didn't have a 1.4 engine. Assuming it has a 2.4 engine and it has a chain.
Run a compression test. If compression in all cylinders is low, it's probably the timing chain.
