If battery has power, check if other things work or not. If you mean "won't turn over" does starter relay Click? If there is only silence its a different problem. Check the oil level, some cars will kill the ignition at any speed for low oil level. The timing belt would not stop the engine from cranking. Starter relays usually aren't fused. Check battery cables.

My 2000 malibu chugs while going down highway 5 miles an hour

If you have done basic tune up stuff, I would check fuel pressure with gauge installed and running down the highway. Other possibles are bad ignition module, loose wire somewhere in coil circuit, bad fuel pump, filter, many others.

Engine skip

Before it is warms up- the pcm (computer)
controls the injector timing

Once warmed up- it is controlled by the oxygen

If you have not replaced the front or upstream O2
Sensors do that (usually they fail at 100,000 miles-
in your case you have too many years on them)

You do not need to add anything to your fuel,just a waste
of money to add a few oz in many gallons of fuel,won't do
a thing -although Chevron is supposed to be the best, if
you do use any

You may have ignition coils going bad & the place you went to
most likely just installed spark plugs, etc & never road tested
or diagnosed all the data avail to them or anything else

All too common to waste money at these shops now adays

Pretty much have to tell them how to do their job, if you want
things resolved or keep trying to build a better relationship with
a good shop,never go to the chain store places

You going to find after driving 20 miles or more that the ignition
coils break down & do so in no pattern
You can go 2 weeks or have them fail at every traffic light one day
& then nothing for another week
You can drive for 200 miles at 65 & then pull off the highway & it
shuts down,two days later the problem is back
Always bad individual ignition coils on a ford

Hard exceleration power loss

Volkswagen had a series of bad ignition switches that should be covered by a recall. Did you check if your car is effected by the recall? The result of the bad switch is very much as you described. Car just stalls on the highway.

1992 Jeep Sport - hard start - AND - when started and after running at highway speed for 15-20 minutes it suddenly dies. You must come to a complete stop - turn it off wait a couple minutes then turn on...

Sounds like a fuel problem??On the chasis rail back near the fuel tank there is a fuel filter that is often overlooked.Get that checked and I hope that is the only problem.If it is not.Come back to me and I may be able to help

Sudden release of power while driving at 65 miles

at that high a mileage it could be very likely the trans is starting to fail, have the computer tested for transmission trouble code's (trans is fully electronically shifted and controlled), also it is very unlikely the alignment check is related.
