Question about 2002 Chevrolet Impala
For a few months now, I have to turn my key two or three times in order for the engine to start. And some days there is no issue, other times, it happens all day. On 12/24/08, the check engine light came on. My hubby had been checking the fluid levels earlier that day and I told him maybe one of the caps did not get replaced correctly. Somehow he got the light to go off on 12/25/08. The car was fine until 12/30/08. The light came back on. 1/1/09, I start the car, no light. This morning, the light came on when I backed the car out of the garage. I removed the fuel cap and replaced it and the light went back off. Now this morning on my way to work, on the freeway, I let off the gas to reduce my speed and look down at my tach and it is fluctuating while I am giving it no gas at all. I turned down the radio to totally concentrate and feel the car slightly jerking. HELP!!!!!
I posted a solution for another person with an Impala that had a problem with the car intermittently not starting. If you can find that post and follow those instructions that will solve your not starting problem. As far as the check engine light coming on the other persons are correct. It is much better to go to an Autozone and have them pull the trouble codes. Once you have those and can post them then one of us can give you some advice as to how to solve the problem. You can also take it to a professional garage and they can check it out and give you more detailed one on one professional advice as to what the problem is. If you just guess at these things you can spend a lot of time, money, and frustration for nothing. Good luck!
