2002 Chevrolet Impala Questions
Want to cover a small hole on one of the power steering pressure pipes.
The yellow wire only pulses a volt or two. Can I cut this wire and run power from the rear signal wire?
The problem is constant and playing with the hazard switch has no effect. The light does not work on hazard either.
It also makes that noise while waiting at a traffic light
2002 Chevrolet Impala Recalls
Excess weight on the key ring can cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position without warning, turning off the engine. This defect can also affect the safe operation of the airbag system. Until this recall is performed, customers should remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the ignition key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be removed from the key ring. Dealers will provide two replacement key rings and key cover on all ignition keys to correct this concern.
2002 Chevrolet Impala Reviews
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.
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?
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.
