My 1999 chevy malibu is overheating and my fluids are up to par so what could be the problem?

Check the thermostat to be sure it is opening. A quick way is to check the temperature of the radiator or hold the top hose when the engine is cold, warm it up and see if the hose gets hot. If it stays colder than the engine then the thermostat is nor opening. Otherwise clean the radiator inside and out. Make sure that the fan is starting when hot.
