Hi there:

Although it's very difficult to diagnose an engine issue remotely over the interwebs, it's quite possible that you have an exhaust leak that is causing the acceleration issues and that loud "go kart" engine sound. In order to determine the right cause of your Malibu's acceleration issues, you should contact a professional mechanic and have them complete a car is slow to accelerate inspection; as this can pinpoint the source of your issues and ensure the right repairs are completed.
