Replacing my power steering return hose on my 04 SS impala. It seems like it's going to be a nightmare since it was hard enough to get the old one out let alone installing the new one without damaging it. There are a lot of obstacles in the way of the reinstalling process. My question is what is the easiest way to get the job done without damaging the new part? As the steering tie rod, brake assembly/ suspension and the exhaust pipe are all in the way. Was thinking of removing the lower passenger motor mount and suspending the engine with a hoist to make more clearance for the new hose. Or should I not do that. Any advice on how I should address this issue would be helpful and appreciated.
When i rev my engine in my 04 impala SS, the rpm's suddenly cut out at about 45k rpm's. Not like the engine wants to die out or anything it just seems as if it is limited to a certain rpm upon reving in park. Never seen this kind of activity with any of my cars as i can red line the rpm's if I wanted to but not in my impala. Not sure what can cause this except for something within the emission system. Does not occur while driving. Only in park or in neutral. Any suggestions as to what I should look at to solve this problem?
Was wondering if a power steering return hose leak can be fixed instead of having to replace it? Can i use jb weld or rubber hose and clamps to stop the leak? I know the high pressure hose cant be fixed in this manner for the pressure is to great. But can the aluminum PS return hose be dealt with in this way? The leak is under the exhaust pipe about a half inch away from it.
Feels like my fuel pump is not delivering the proper amount of fuel when attempting to start only after i refuel. Starts normal on the 2nd try of starting. The more fuel i put the more it feels like it dont want to start but when i add just a little fuel its not so bad but still a little hesitant. Any input of what might cause this problem?
