Find out what's wrong with your fifth generation Malibu using the 1997-2003 Chevrolet Malibu troubleshooting guide

Background and Identification ¶ 

The specific model addressed in these guides is a fifth generation 1999 Chevrolet Malibu 2.4L. The body is the base 4-door sedan model.

The fifth generation Chevrolet Malibu (1997-2003) was produced with two different engine sizes: 2.4L and 3.1L. The 3.1L was used in two different models of the Malibu. There is the LS 4-door sedan and the LS Gold Edition 4-door sedan. The 2.4L model is more common and cheaper than the more powerful 3.1L model.

The Chevrolet Malibu was first created in 1964 as a trim for the Chevrolet Chevelle. It was not until 1978 that the Chevrolet Malibu became its own model. However, after the fourth generation (1978-1983) the production of Chevrolet Malibu ceased from 1984-1996. The Malibu was later rejuvenated as the fifth generation seen in these guides. Chevrolet has continued producing the Malibu model and are now in the eighth generation of production.
