Find the Schrader valve (has a cap like a tire stem) on the fuel line by the TB and carefully press it straight in gently. to burp it. It may take several tries before the air bubble is gone and all the bad gas with water, etc from the bottom of the tank is out. If you bend the pin, it won't stop leaking afterwards.
If that doesn't work, then best case scenario is put a bit of fuel (spoonful) in throttlebody and start. If it doesn't stay running, then change the fuel filter (crud from the bottom of the tank may have blocked it up) And if that doesn't work, have someone crank while you thump the bottom of the tank.
The pump may be stuck with grit, or overheated due to no fuel to cool it (in which case the fuel pump relay may be shot and/or fuel pump is shot) They don't like being run too low on fuel.

the three things your vehicle needs is spark fuel and air. so check to see if all your wires are getting good spark. now for the air you have the air filter then right behind it you have your mass airflow sensor then you will follow the air induction up to your throtel body. make sure your throtel body is in good working condition I.E depending on if you have a electronic throtel body or the old cable version you also may clean the throtel body along with the mas airflow sensor. in the rear of the air induction there is yet another sensor called the map sensor check this for serviceabity also. if this does not solve the problem your fuel lift pump in your fuel tank will have a constant hum to it easy way to tell if this is the isue is unhook your fuel supply line and turn the key to the on position this will tell you if your fuel lift pump is working another thing to check is the charcol canister it may be clogged

This could be a TPC valve or sensor. That is a throtel position control. Your engine will idle or run at low speed fine or in stop and go traffic but highway driving or climbing a hill when the demand changes to heavy or light consumption it will surge the engine as it can't get a good read on what it is suppose to do. This is a resonable priced part and for about twenty bucks for a CHILTON manuel for your car it will give you step by step instructions on this and almost any project you want to try yourself. They will have these at your autoparts store.

Suspect 99 malibu broken timing belt

If its a 99 4 cyl 2.4 ltr it should have a timing chain. Check your PCV (positive Crankcase Ventilation) Valve. it should rattle when you shake it. sometimes you can clean it with carb cleaner. but for what they cost, just go buy a new one. When they plug up it doesn't let your crankcase breathe and you will start getting oil in your throttle body or carb. Gas engines don't like to run on oil for the combustion process.4 cyl engines dont have a pcv valve just the v6 motor...
