I would check the torque converter dust shield for being bent and scraping on converter as it spins.

SOURCE: Where are the 2 IAT wires in my 96 Impala SS?

Do you mean the Intake Air Temperature sensor? If so, the sensor is located on the air cleaner housing or the air tube leading to the engine. It is usually a two wire connector. The only other sensor that may be in the intake air stream is a MAF and that would have 3 or more wires.

Testimonial: "Thank you so much. Today I found the 3wires of the MAF and I thought two of them were the IAT wires but I guess those three are very different."

1996 chevrolet impala ss oil leak rear of engine

Is it engine oil or transmission fluid? Is it driven often or does it sit in the garage? If engine oil, then possibly the rear seal is leaking into the bellhousing as you drive and then draining on the floor after you stop. If ****** fluid, then possibly front seal on ****** is leaking. If car sits for long periods of time the input shaft seal can allow fluid to leak past the shaft. This usually will fix itself when driven. Can't promise it will fix itself permanently. Will not be an easy fix if either seal needs replacing (or cheap).

Get it scanned again. If you bought cheaper ones at the parts store instead of oem ones from the dealer you are probably going to be doing them again. The upstream and down stream 02 sensors communicate with each other so it could be the upstream sensors even though it says downstream. I ran into this problem myself.

I suggest scanned in order to look fault codes, could be a internal transmission problem with the valve body solenoids. Also check fluid levels.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day

Rotate the tensioner pully clockwise using a 13 mm 1/2" socket. (the tensioner pulley is the only one with a hex head bolt). Follow tthe routing guide inside your engine bay and replace the pulley. They can squeak from age even if they don't have any cracks.

Rear diff

This sounds more like a transmission issue than the rear differential. It's possible that you have a damaged or mis-adjusted shift linkage or possibly a bad shift solenoid. Transmission fluid might be low, but I'm guessing you already checked the fluid with then engine warmed up and running. When it does run, does it vibrate? This could be an indicator that you have a bad seal in your torque converter and are losing fluid from it.
