2002 Chevrolet Impala Problems
The transmission pressure control solenoid may fail causing erratic shifting. Our technicians tell us that partial dis-assembly of the transmission is necessary to replace a failed pressure control solenoid.
The steering may develop a clunk type noise from the upper intermediate steering shaft. Our technicians tell us that you should check with your local GM dealer to find out what the latest repair is for this condition.
The high pressure power steering hose will commonly leak fluid; it should be replaced.
The intake manifold gasket can develop external engine oil or coolant leaks. In some cases the failed gasket will leak coolant internally. The manifold gasket will need to be replaced to correct this issue.

2002 Chevrolet Impala Reviews
i have a 02 imapale when i start it it it keeps cranking and when i turn the key off it continues to crank any tips
Purchased in fall of 2002 my Impala. It had 25k miles on it. It has over 338,000. The engine is still strong and one uses Mobil one sythenic oil. Normal wear, ac, brakes, and radiator. I still trust it on any trip. Maintenance is the sucess for my Imapala. The engine is expected to go 500k miles before I stop driving it. Is it the Oil?
I bought the car brand new and have only had three problems: intake gasket leak ($1400), catalytic converter replaced ($250), and dash lights operate during day but not at night. I have 152,000 miles on it and still confidently make 2,400 mile trips in this car. Great car when maintenance is kept up.
2002 Impala SS with 198k miles and still running strong....Very little breakdowns on major components over its 9 year life. Routine maintenance and TLC pays off.
2002 Chevy Impala base model runs good at 63,750 miles. The serpentine belt has been replaced ($100w/labor), the rear brakes & fluid change ($400) , new tires w/4 wheel alignment($600+), oil change and filter ($20) ,fuel system cleanout ($80). Runs great now. Put a few bucks in with the hope she continues to run well.
