When I am on a slight incline or even a hill and start to accelerate the car will pop real hard, almost like its going into gear but the transmission mech cant find anything wrong with it. It will also feel like its caught slightly when I am making a sharp turn from a stand still. also the radio will pop off everytime I hit a bump. I can even pop the steering wheel and make it go off. Any suggestions?
the car will crank but wont start
I'm currently getting low oil pressure and "check gauge" light when idling. What do i need to check oil pressure. I'm assuming if oil pressure is fine then i need to replace the sending unit. Has anyone had this problem?
This also happened last week and it seems to be fine on the drive home. i checked and the coolant is not low. It also appeared as if the temp gauge was not working. when i got to work the engine was not hat at all. the car has 103,000 miles on it and has never given any problems. hope it is an easy fix.
my oil somehow ended up in my coolant. i didnt have symptoms, no overheat or drivability issues. i had just decied to check my coolant and saw chocolate ice cream layer in the reservoir. so i drained the coolant and there is thick sticky oil coating everything...the reservoir, the hoses to and from the radiator, the water pump hoses, etc. it is a layer of gunk and so how do i get it out or flush it out of the system?
no overheat, no drivability issues either. I just happened to check the coolant and the reservoir was full of chocolate sludge. My engine oil leaked in to my coolant somehow. I have drained the coolant and the coolant looked new other than about an inch thick of oil sludge floating on the top of it. How do I clean the coolant reservoir and the entire cooling system of all the sludge that is stuck to the walls of everything, ie. hoses, recovery tank, radiator. Am I going to have to replace it all or is there a way to clean it? how can I verify if the oil cooler is the problem and not a head gasket
I am install an engine and need to know what is the easiest way from the top are bottom.
If the car has been sitting overnight and I start it the trans will not engage till I run it till running temperature is reached and I turn it off and come back in 15 minutes and then it is fully functional.
I have a 96 SS impala and it won't start I changed the spark plugs and wires, igniton coil, ignitor, cap, rotor, distributor, air flow meter, fuel pump and nothing worked. can anyone point me in the right direction in getting this car running?
I have a misfire and my traction control light is on . I have the plug I just need to know which one to replace
First time it happened and still wont start
The car is using more gas and the check engine lit is on code is po522 and po523. Can that cause this problem
speedo jumps,alt gauge droppes off at 70mph
replace sencors and cap and relayed
Stopped working for months now.
2nd time cost me 300.00 at dealer. Now have 78000 miles, and warning lights come on intermittently, sometimes 2 or 3 times a day. Not sure what to do...notified dealer at last oil change, but could find no EVIDENCE of malfunction, so nothing done. They also refused to correct problem under warranty. The car has 100,000 mile powertrain warranty still effective. Is it normal to have failures on the throttle body every 35-40000 miles???
can not get to the plugs in the back? Is there a special tool to use?
added a fuel additive, changed o2 sensors, cleaned mass air flow sensors, runs really smooth except at start
Changed oil 3 weeks ago. Replaced the oil pressure sensor.
car is running well-starts good
When I am at a stop and I start from a stop it like hits hard or like a little jerk or slip not sure but only from a complete stop and not always
I did replace the gas cap with a new one from auto parts store.
Too old of a car too purchase? The car appears to be in mint condition except I noticed some rust on each side of the front seats the frame or rods in which the seat slides or powers up and down forward or backwards. Should I be concerned with this issue? Really like the car be seems as if it will be expensive to keep the maintenance. It would be a car driven daily to work and other daily activities.
Please provide engine diagram.
Since this is a transverse mounted engine I know the front four will be easy. But how do I reach the four along the back near the firewall??

Mast broke during car wash and I have replacement mast, but I cannot remove insert in housing.
The outside temp reads -38 therefore the a/c will not work. We have changed the ambient temp sensor but that didn't help. Any suggestions would be helpful. It only does this when u idle for a period of ftime or after u drive for a while & kill the engine to run into the store & when u restart it it says -38.
