the TPS would be my first guess~ http://www.autopartswarehouse.com/shop_parts/throttle_position_sensor/che vy/malibu.html

vacuum hoses get brittle or bloated....replace ALL of them with silicone vacuum hose so this NEVER happens to you~

the intake air temp sensor (or Air charge) sensor is what replaces the ole heat-riser and butterfly....need to know what temperature at the intake plenum~ https://www.google.com/shopping/product/3856410587900675724? biw=1309&bih=709&sclient=psy- ab&q=2008+Chevy+Malibu+air+charge+sensor&oq=2008+Chevy+Malibu +air+charge+sensor&pbx=1&ei=oTmSUsinN- rK2gXV44GQCg&ved=0CKkBEKYrMAU
