The battery is a sealed unit so you can not add water. Have the battery checked and replace if needed

I have a 2008 Chevy Malibu n when I crank it my idol is jumping from 1to almost two n it's jumping when I stop at a stop light or stop sign it jumping so bad I have to put it in park

Clean the throttle body and replace the idle air control(IAC) motor. The IAC has 4 stages, sounds like it lost the first stage.

2010 Chevy Malibu won't turn over when I turn the key. Battery is good and the lights go out when I try to start it then come back on.

Hello Kevin, I think you should check and clean the battery cable connections at the battery. Also make sure they are tight.

My 2003 chevy malibu cranks but wont start. battery is good and altenator is good

To clarify - - if the engine cranks the battery and starter are ok.
The alternator does not come into play until the engine is running.
If it cranks but won't start, you have to figure out if you are missing fuel to the injectors or spark to the plugs to proceed.
A mechanic would check that and if there are any trouble codes stored in the computer.

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.

Battery dont get charge ,but alternator it is ok

Always check the fluid level in each of the battery cells and top up with distilled water as required.

Using a multimeter you can assess th health of your car battery and alternator:
  • With the engine off, measure the volatge at thebattery terminal: it should show 12.5+ volts, anything under or around 10.5 volts indicates a shorted damaged battery cell -> bad battery!
  • With the engine running, the voltage reading at the battery terminal should indicate around 13.8 volts and anything under 13.5 volts and over 14.5 volts indicates a bad alternator and/or alternator regulator.
Hope it helps!

The CCA;s(cold cranking amps) are too low on your battery. When this happens your car usually only starts when its cold. Recommend testing your battery and probably replacing it. Good luck, keep me posted.
