Should not be too expensive to fix. There are two aspects to this one is the generation of the spark and two is the timing of the spark. So for the timing locate your crank sensor along the edge of the engine flywheel housing and remove it. Give it a good clean and inspect it closely. Check the electrical connection. If the sensor is obviously cracked renew it. Now check the cam sensor for the same. Lastly, look at the ignition coil performance checking the health of the spark on each of the plugs. Sudden death whilst running is most usually associated with one of the above and renewal of everything should eliminate the problem for good.

Are lifters a common problem on chevy malibu 3100

That depends on when was the last time the car was serviced and how many miles its done since the last service.

If its a high milage car then having the valves set should clear up the misfire and the lifter tick.

Running Rough

check all vacuum lines especially the one behind the throttle body and if it had been awhile with a tune up now is a good time to do also
