Ok, Back of starter you have the large cable from Battery's Hot side and 1 small wire that is the solenoid wire that gets hot with 12 volts when the key is turned,

If you short out the large wire with the solenoid wire the starter should start to turn over unless the key is on then the car should start..

IF car starts or starter turns the engine over you have an ignition wiring / switch problem,. Could be a relay.?
Could be a "Fusible " link at the starter small wire..

Is There Any noise and clicking like maybe a weak battery??
if the battery is fully charge you could try wacking the starter with a hammer "Just the starter" :) while someone keeps trying to tune the key and see if the starter kicks in.. If it does you need a starter..

If you have more info send it.. Thx.. BCB.

SOURCE: Chaning right wheel bearing on 1999 Chevy Malibu

It is much easier, and cheaper to find a steering knuckle or "hub assembly" in a salvage yard.
To begin, jack up the car and remove the wheel. Be certain the car is stable and will not roll off jack(s)!
Remove the spindle nut. Remove the brake caliper (hang on a wire). Remove the bolt for lower ball join. Remove the bolt that goes thru strut. Now, pull assembly off while prying to ease pressure from the lower control arm.
Depending on how many miles you have on the car, you might want to head-off some future trouble by replacing the half-axle while you have the front end disassembled.

That engine does not have a timing belt, it has a timing chain and therefore much easier to work with as it can only go on a certain way, the primary focus being getting the dots on the timing chain sprockets lined up properly.

I believe, with the engine at Top Dead Center on cylinder #1, the dots will be facing each other. That is to say, the do on the cam sprocket will be facing the dot on the crank sprocket.

Before starting this job I would get a repair manual. This is not a easy job, 6+ hours for an experienced tech with all of the right tools. And you may have to discharge and recharge the AC system.

I changed the raido in my 99 chevy malibu and lost all lights inside and auto lights outside the car will now start but as soon as it does it dies. changed fuel pump and filter the whole ignition thro

Check your fuses, your main power source has failed somewhere. Sounds like it is grounding out. Retake your foot steps and see where you hooked up all your wires. Also check your fuel pump pressure and check your spark. Make sure it is strong. For you to have lost all power, I would check all my fusible links all the way to the starter.

2006 chevy malibu will not start. There is power to the dashboard items, but when I try to start the car, there is a 'choking' sound as the car tries to turn over, followed in most cases by a 'popping'...

Insufficient car batteries (old, worn out, needing replacement) have been known to light clusters, yet do not have enough power for the starter to turn over the vehicle. As well, inspect the battery terminals: they may have corrosion and need to be cleaned. Check to make sure your exhaust pipe is free of debris. Check to make sure you have fuel. You may need a complete tune up: if you value the car, take it to a (well referenced) trained professional for a proper diagnoses.

1999 bug it only starts when it want to after its runing its good you shut it down you dont know if its going to start again did this happen to any one eles

Check first your battery! The battery terminal might be LOOSE and needs tightening! Put some grease after u cleaned the TERMINAL POLE, corrosion and oxidation occurs when it wasn't maintained! Try to check that first and let us know wut happened after that Taaah!!

The malibu start only after a jump off stays running until I shut it off is this a bad battery or altinator

usually when you have the car running and disconnect the positive cable from the battery the alternator will keep the car running. If it dies right away, the alternator is bad. If you can, charge the battery. If you don't have a battery charger your local auto parts store will charge it for you at no cost. They can test your alternator for you as well. Are the battery terminals clean? If there is a heavy amount of corrosion on the terminals the battery will not put out enough cranking amps to start the car. I would try here first.

Car wont start

Assuming power is getting to the starter fine I'd have to guess the starter is worn and may require replacement. I'd investigate the starter motor.
I hope this may have helped,

99 Chevy Malibu - auto trans - no dipstick

You have what is called a closed cased transmission. You have to crawl underneathe to get to the tranny and remove the upper bolt close to the side of the case (more towards the bottom of the transmission). When you fill it, you fill it till it starts to drip out of that hole.

Looking for a picture for you.
