When replacing the themastat...we took off the hoses from the water holding tank (reserve, I know it is misspelled but it the water plastic holding tank) but not sure if the hoses were placed on correctly...He person replacing it did not notice how they were connected when he took them off. Just wanted confirmation that it was placed back correctly...Thanks in Advance, Julie

The hoses you are questioning must be the two right next to each other on the "surge tank" on your Chevrolet Malibu. The picture I am looking at shows one hose coming from the back of the engine and another coming from the front - they do not cross. If you have the one from the back connected to the rear most fitting and the one from the front connected to the front most fitting you should be ok.
