Question about 1999 Chevrolet Malibu
Although I CAN'T see how a new alternator would have anything to do with over heating except if it was the wrong one or incorrectly installed , the belt it rides on needs servicing(worn , to tight or too loose).
Maybe the wires on the back of the alternators are corroded not letting full B+ go to where its needed.
A visual inspection and a few simple test with a voltmeter should do the trick.
