Need to locate and replace coolant sensor

If you are refering to the coolant level sensor (causes low coolant light to turn on), it is located on the radiator near the battery on the passnger side. It is on the radiator tank, just below the radiator cap and the upper connection for the transmission line. Heres a picture of the sensor on my 2002 Impala when I removed the radiator (it's the square thing in the center of the picture):

2002 chevy impala...wipers stay in the up position. why do i get a replacement transmission and install?

No what you need to ck first is take the windshield cowl cover off (the plastic cover at the bottom of the windshield) Then ck the wiper mounting bracket you will see a oval looking thing with a spring wraped around it on top of the wiper mtr. On the bottom of the oval is a little and make shure that is still there.If it is than ck the big bracket under the crank arm there is a little tab sticking up (towards the left side at the back of the bracket.) that lever on the crank arm needs to hit the tab on the bracket when the wipers are turned off. If the lever is there than bend the tab untill the lever hits the tab. If the lever is missing on the crank arm than the crank arm needs to be repalced.Follow the instructions with the crank arm to the letter.

My 2002 Impala has an A/C leak. The leak is on the driver's side around the top of the radiator but I'm unable to see the actual leak. Is this a condenser issue or possibly just an o-ring?

On my 2002 3800 V6 Impala the leak was at the bottom of the condensor on the drivers side. On mine the condensor connections were near the bottm driver's side. If you sure it's at the top, it's pretty certain to be the condensor.
I replaced my own. As I recall, the condensor was less than $100.

Winshield wipers stay stright when you turn them off 2002 chevy impala

You need to replace the wiper crank arm that is bolted to the wiper motor. Then you need to bend the tab back up that got bent on the wiper motor bracket that the old crank arm bent. The crank arm has to hit this metal tab so the wipers will park down below the window istead of up.
