Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do my best to help you with your Chevy problem.

Normally on these cars when you get oil in the coolant, it is due to a leaking transmission oil cooler in the radiator. This allows the transmission oil to enter the cooling system. The fix is to replace the radiator and then flush the cooling system.

On the Malibu, there is no engine oil cooler, so there is no place in the system that would be prone to leaking engine oil into the coolant. If engine oil is being forced into the cooling system then this would have to be due to a crack in the block.
