Question about 2005 Chevrolet Impala

2003 Impala, passenger side windshield wiper

Sometimes the passenger side will not make a full pass, sometimes it will slam down into the cowl, other times it will work perfectly. There appears to be nothing obviously wrong with it, although i'm not a mechanic (not anywhere close). any thoughts

Drivers side wiper not working

The passenger side still works correct? There is a bar that connects the wipers underneath the plastic cowling at the base of the winshield. pull the wiper arms and remove the cowling to see the mechanism underneath. Sometimes the clips wear out and or depending on the model, there are locknuts over a bushing.

Passenger side wiperblade arm not moving, driver's side working fine.

you need to check to make sure the "arm" is moving , some gm vehilce have a sealed wiper unit, but the alero should still have arms. turn wipers on and look down at the cowl vent and see if it appears to move. if it is the mounting post for the arm on the passenger side has PROBABLY stripped out the soft lead mount at the bottom of the wiper arm. make sure the wipers are "parked", then carefully try to wiggle the pass side back and forth (its normal motion...). if it moves you will need to pop the arm off(super careful here..) and the post that looks smooth must be cleaned out with a fine pick or equilalent, the post accually has splines all around to engage the wiper arm. put on the new arm.. presto.... wipers.

DON'T slam the glove compartment, that's near the passenger airbag. Check fuses for the fan, and the motor for the fan. The fan works sometimes, which means power is getting to it, might just need to be cleaned or replaced.

I need to install a new ignition coil in my 1998 ford windstar. How do i do this?

You can sometimes (if you have 2 elbows on each arm) reach around the back of the intake manifold and replace the coil pack using a 1/4 inch rachet with a 7mm socket.
Most of the time you need to remove the plastic cowl assembly located under the windshield wipers. To do this remove both wiper arms by lifting the plastic covers at the bottom of each wiper arm. Remove the 15mm nuts that hold the wiper arms down and wiggle the arms while pulling upwards until they come off (take note of which is left and right, they are different sizes). Next remove the plastic phillips screws/ plastic rivets that hold the cowl down on the bottom towards the engine(the screw comes up half way and when you pull up the base/ rivet comes up with it).
Next pull up on the cowl where it meets the windshield left or right side and you will hear the retainers snap and release. Continue pulling until the cowl is loose. Next disconnect the hoses that go to the washer nozzles. Put the cowl aside.
Next remove the micron filter located on the passengers side of the cowl (if it has one it is a good time to replace it). Remove from left to right 8or 9 8mm bolts that hold the lower cowl down. On the drivers side disconnect the 8 pin connector for the wiper motor. Now disconnect the washer fluid hose that goes thru the cowl on the passengers side. Lift up on the cowl and you should be able to wiggle it out and set it aside. You can now see the coil pack behind the intake manifold. Take note of spark plug wire location on the coil pack because they have to go back on in the same order.. Reassemble in reverse order. Note that while the cowl is off it is a great time to replace the spark plugs on the back of the engine.
Good luck to you and congratulations for doing it yourself
