SOURCE: bad smell in air vent chevy impala

It is not fixed by an aerosol or scent additive to the air in the cabin. It will only mask the smell for a period of time.

Your cause is the air filter for the A/C system. You can buy a new one at local auto stores.

To replace it, you will need to open your hood. On the passenger side of the car, look just under the windshield at the trim panel under the wipers. You will see several tabs holding down this particular side of the trim piece. Using a phillips head screwdriver, gently rotate the screw pieces out of the tab holder (if this doesn't get it, you'll need to use a small flat head in unison to apply pressure to the screw to come out). There are 3. Once these are removes, gently pull the hood rubber gasket seal up and place out of the way. Note: you won't need to remove it from the car, just enough to clear the trim piece. Remove the trim and you will see a filter. Remove the filter and replace. Installation of trim is reverse.

That will fix your mildew smell from the vents. This WILL NOT fix a mildew smell if caused by interior mildew.

Note: The directions to change this filter are also found in your Owner's Manual if you have it. It is a simple procedure and should take about 15 minutes if you are taking your time.

Thanks for the inquiry.

The battery is under the hood, just behind the passenger headlight.
There is a black bar that crosses over the battery and goes back towards strut tower. Remove this bar and the three bolts; probably a 12 or 13mm socket.
Remove the negative (black) battery cable with an 8mm socket or wrench. A 5/16" should work also.
Then remove the positive (red) cable with same socket.
Remove the battery clamp and bolt. Probably a 12mm socket with extension.
It's tight, but the battery can be removed.
Reverse instructions for installing the battery. (That includes hooking up the red battery cable first, then the black cable.)

I feel a vibration on my 2009 chevrolet impala at freeway speeds. I resurfaced the front rotors and installed new front brake pads. What can be causing the vibration? Car has 195000 miles roughly.

I would certainly check the wheel hubs, the main bearings are in them. Also, struts or shocks could be bad or you maybe needing a front end alignment.

2005 Chevy Impala LS. Will a bad upper intake cause an engine light to come on. I've been told I need a new Upper intake but currently have no engine light on.

the check engine light comes on when there is an issue with a sensor/sending unit/system/or something the pcm controls. The check engine light does not come on when there is a mechanical issue such as a bad lower intake gasket.

There are times when a mechanical problem can cause a sensor to read incorrectly and cause the check engine light to come on.

2009 chevy impala check engine light

Check engine lights can mean a number fo different issues. I would recommend that you have the codes read from the computer and this will determine what causing the light to come. Most auto parts store take code reads for FREE!

I have a 2005 chevy impala with miles 147,000 and the check engine light came on

I would have the 2005 Chevy Impala's computer scanned for codes to see what is causing the check engine light to go on. It is not unusual for a 'miss' or an O2 sensor to go bad on such a high mileage vehicle.

Have it checked, though, in order to pinpoint the problem sooner.

Good luck on this repair.
