Chevrolet Impala, Sedan
Nov 15, 2005 (5:58 am)
Hello everyone, I own a 2002 Impala LS, am the second owner and at 34,000 miles my transmission went out, warranty was up and Chevy wouldn't do anything, so $2300 later I had a beefed up rebuilt tranny. Now at 37,000 miles tranny is acting up again and its in the shop now, they are replacing a solenoid and said that 10 engine codes come up and think it needs a new computer because everything else is running fine....we will see. A $500 job to replace a fuel sensor was done right after I got it but covered under warranty, done right around 29,000 miles.
What should I do? I love the car but I can't keep putting money into it... and with the tranny loan and the car payment I could have had an suv at this point, but owe way more than the car is worth now...
any suggestions in any direction would help, thanks!

I would take it in because I was having the same problem with mine, and my coolant was leaking to my gaskets and they needed to be replaced. Get it checked just in case because I didn't really lose hardly any coolant at first but then it got real bad real fast. It cost over $700 to get it all fixed.

I am having the same problem. My low coolant light is coming on and going off. I have checked the levels and everything is fine. My temperature gauge to a little low. Especially when I have my heater on. I don't know what the deal is!

My Impala does the same thing. I do have my rear window tinted, but I've never taken it in to be looked at so I couldn't help you. If you find out what it is please let me know. Thanks

The fuse is for my interior light, my trunk light and my mirror light.

My daughter has the same problem with her Cavalier and yes it is the a blower motor resistor. Not sure where it is, I think some where near the blower motor. Go to the library and get a repair manual and look it up. Or go to the dealer's parts department and tell them what you want and have them show you where the thing goes, they have all the diagrams. My dealer has been helpful to me in this way.
