My car (2003 Malibu) is
Check for blown head gaskets. GM aluminum-head engines are VERY UNFORGIVING when it comes to being overheated. The heads usually warp, resulting in blown head gaskets and repeated overheating like you are describing. One of the main symptoms will be that you fill the cooling system and open the bleader screws to get the air out of the system. Then you start the engine and run it until the cooling fan comes on. When the fan comes on, place your hand behind the cooling fan and see if the air coming through the radiator is HOT. If it is blowing cool air, the coolant is not flowing through the radiator like it should. This is usually caused by high pressure in the cooling system due to combustion gasses getting in.

2003 malibu alarm won't stop
Well when you replaced the battery did anything else on the key fob work? Often times you have to reprogram the remote in order for it to function properly. Try getting inside the vehicle and manually lock all doors with the driver's side switch. Put the master key in the ignition switch and turn the switch to the run position but do not start it. Now push and hold the lock and unlock buttons at the same time until the locks make noise....may take 10 to 30 seconds. After you have the key fob programmed, see if the alarm will turn off with the remote. Did it work? The only way to totally turn off the alarm is with a GM Tech @ or 3 scan tool and go into body control bidirectional controlling procedures or with a very good aftermarket scanner with good bi-directional functionality.
The alarm works via the body control module on this vehicle and i am thinking it uses the PK2 system and if you do not have a properly coded key or the BCM is loosing memory, then check for any and every blown fuse and replace as needed.to start with.. If the vehicle stays running after starting then the bcm/key is reading correctly.
