Could be the fuel pump. Where did you get it? Years ago I quit buying pumps, alternators, and starters from discount stores. I bought a fuel pump that died the next day. Only to do the job again. Now I work I do get OE parts. I have only replaced one OE part in the last ten+ years. I could even tell you how many discount parts I have replace that are less than 6 months old. Chinese made junk.

Did you change the fuel filter when you changed the fuel pump? If there was any water in the gas, it can cause the filter media to swell and effectively plug an otherwise clean filter.

Either horn is bad, wiring is bad or switch under steering wheel. Warning: You need a mechanic specializing in air bag handing and procedures because you will set off the air bag when you attempt to take off the steering wheel!

You know the 97 to 04 Malibu is noted for intake manifold leaking antifreeze into the engine. A little antifreeze in a cylinder can keep the piston from moving in compression stroke. Take a look at the spark plugs, see if any of them have antifreeze on them and maybe the starter will spin the crank with the plugs out.

Your reservoir , I believe is on the passenger side. On the bottom of it is the pump and sensor. Replace the sensor. You have to remove the wheel, remove the inner fender cover to get to it.

Need to get a diagnostic test with an OBDII Scanner. You may need to have it towed into a shop for this service or if you have any friends/relatives that own one, this is the place to start. Too many things could be wrong without having a point to start at.

if oil level is good, then check oil pressure, if pressure is low and you have been driving for a while with this noise then you may need to replace the motor as metal particles will cause damage unseen. it could also be the timing chain that is so loose it is flopping around and hitting the timing cover. in this case replacing timing chain and gears will be required.

It could be a number of reasons but the most common reason is, it needs a tuneup.
