Commonly called the IAC Motor(Idle Air Control Motor) generally mounted into the intake manifold, they often go bad after they clog up with carbon creating the pentil to stop traveling in and out which allows the fuel mixtures to go between lean and rich depending upon many enine condition factors one being hot or cold engine coolant acceleration(wide open throttle) etc.
converge on your local parts house hopefully you have an Auto Zone Store or similiar locally, they will give you advise on where the part is located, if its stocked and how much it costs and also if it is a dealer item or not. Hopefully this helps you.

Where is the location of the idle air control valve in a 2004 chevy malibu?

If there are no cables coming off throttle body to control throttle there is no Idle Air Control valve. the idle is controlled electronically by the computer. If car is idling rough you can clean throttle body to correct this problem. If you do have cables to control throttle the IAC valve is located right next to throttle body attached to it. Hope this helps

My 2004 chevy classic cuts out sometimes while driving down the highway, does not do this when I press on the gas, also idles rough especially while in drive

If your car has over 100K on it, you will need to go and have it tuned up and the throttle body cleaned and spark plugs changed, my 2004 acted like this and I did the tune-up and it solved my problem.

My 2004 chevy malibu classic 4 cyl wont start its

There are four things required for an engine to run: air, fuel, compression and properly timed spark. If you have fuel and timed spark, the only two variables are air and compression. Air is not the likely problem, and compression should be good unless you blew a head gasket or the rings in all four cylinders. How did you determine that you have fuel and spark? Those are the two most likely problem areas.

2004 chevy classic malibu idle fluctuates with a/c on. While it fluctuates, the light on the a/c button turns on and off. Any idea what this could be?

A poor electrical connection in the circuit to the A/C pump. A lot of times it is a simple splice needed near the pump. As the lines on gas (freon or any other) when compressed, get hot. It's easy to accidentally let one of those wires hit a "hot" spot during other activity, under the hood. CHeck that the connection on the compressor (or if 2 connections) are clean, & secured.
