#276 of 477 2006 Chevy Impala transmission problems
Aug 23, 2011 (4:58 pm)
I've a 2006 Chevy Impala LS was driving fine and my wife had a fender bender. When she was pulling off of the service station lot a car back-up into the front drivers side. The car ran fine. She park it in the garage and the next morning it would not go in any gear. You can hear it click when shift it but want move at all. Would this happen from the accident or is something else would cause this all of a sutton?
#277 of 477 04 impala tranny hesitates then slams
Aug 29, 2011 (10:36 am)
bought on o4 impala last fall and now the tranny is acting up. When i start out from a roll or a compete stop the tranny will sometimes hesitate then slam into gear. Doesnt always do it but it seems to be getting worse and doing it more throughout the driving range. A tranny shop pulled the pan off and it was sludged up on the bottom of the pan and he said that that meant that there were parts wearing out.
According to carfax history the tranny was flushed at 70k but no filter change.
The car now has 96k I bought it at 92k. I hope its that pressure modular but the tranny guys are saying that it needs to be overhauled at $1500 -2000. May consider a GM factory rebuilt or a Jasper???
anyhone else having this issue??? I suppose GM isnt doing anything about it???

Hello, I am a 05 Impala owner, I purchase it in 08. It only had 35000 miles. Starting having problems within months but would periodly disappear. It does not happen all the time but is getting worse. When going into passing gear there is a strong kick,also going up hills. I have put gas treatment changed filters and transmission fluid. A friend of mine told me that her Impala's transmission was slipping. She said that all Impalas were doing that. If anyone can hep,or give me a number to GM would greatly appreciate it.

mine has been doing it for about a year and mine is a 2004 i had a tranny flush but come to find out they didnt even change the filter which is the most important thing. they said that could possibly fix it if not it needs rebuilt, also my ABS system and my traction active is now messing up they said if i replace my hub bearing on the passenger front that will fix the problem because the sensor is bad, its 300 per side but i can buy the part for 90.00 and my dad can fix it so hopefully i dont have to spend a arm and a leg.

#282 of 477 Chevy Impala Transmission Issues
Oct 12, 2011 (9:28 am)
I have the same problem on a 2006 Impala LT3 model. It started at about 70k and now I'm at 80K.
I spoke to my mecahanic at the dealership where i purchased it and he admitted there is a known issue with the transmission. There is an intenal valve body piston in the transmission. The bore of the piston tends to wear out causing improper fluid pressure to flow through causing the hesitations and jerking. This could be fixed by replacing the piston if the damage is not too extensive. If not then a rebuilt or certified new transmisson will run $2700-$3200. If this is a known issue then GM/Chevrolet should be doing some kind of full re-call or at least a partial re-call on this issue. This not good. I have had tree major repairs to this vehicle in the last two years. First it was the cooling mainfold and water pump. Then the rack and steering pump. Unfortunately the rack and pump went out after warranty. Now I'm stuck with this issue and still have balance due on my loan. If GM wanted to take our money for a bail out then they need to return the favor for the faulty labor on this car!!!!
#283 of 477 2005 Transmission Slip after stop then LAUNCH
Oct 24, 2011 (9:52 am)
I minds well chime in. I have a 2005 Impala we bought used with 50k miles on it. Ran great but started noticing an occasional slip after coming to a stop and then would 'chunk' in with a hard jolt. It seems to be happening more often now. There are literally thousands of stories out there about this known issue (not only in this forum). Any news on a recall for this? Come on GM. Do the right thing
I'm suprised someone hasen't been hurt in an accident related to this problem. I could easily see someone sitting at a stop sign while waiting to turn into traffic...they get on it to blend into traffic and then find themselves 'LAUNCHED' into the wrong lane. Almost happened to me yesterday. Scary.
#284 of 477 My two cents on Impala
Oct 26, 2011 (4:59 pm)
I own a 2004 and have had almost every common issue all the other Impalas have had. I take very good care of my car, etc. Transmission has been replaced due to the hard shifting and finally it gave up the ghost, clunk in steering column, gas gauge died (replaced sending unit, wasn`t the problem though), multi switch on column for high beam headlights is touch and go, I don`t use brights because I may lose any headlights I have for a few seconds. Subframe bushings replaced, both front wheel bearing hub assemblies, blower motor and recently a bad Body Control Module...yada yada.
I would junk this car but I borrowed on it to repair it, everything is new but the motor.....uh oh!
#285 of 477 Possible Transmission Proble
Oct 27, 2011 (11:58 am)
I have a 2003 Chevy Impala, and yesterday as I was turning at a red light, my car wouldn't take off. It was like it was stuck but it slowly accelerated. As I proceeded to drive it, it finally picked up speed. But when I stopped again and proceeded to go, it done it again. I took it to a friend who is a mechanic and he says its the transmission going bad. I don't want to spend unnecessary money in getting it fixed. Any ideas on what it could be?
