How to fix oil leaks in chevy ss impala 1996


1. Removal

Unscrew the bolt that holds the negative connection to the Impala's battery. Set this bolt aside for later use.

Remove the engine cover to access the intake manifold and manifold gasket. Disconnect the throttle body inlet duct from the engine.

Twist off the radiator cap to allow draining of the coolant to flow more smoothly. Place an empty container beneath the radiator's drain plug, and remove this plug. Allow all of the engine coolant to drain into the empty container. Replace the drain plug once you are finished.

Tag all of the electrical wiring and hoses before removing so that reconnection is precise to factory settings. Remove these parts, individually, from the intake manifold.

Loosen the bolts that hold the intake manifold to the Impala's engine block. Lift the intake manifold from the block once all bolts have been completely removed.

Use the flat-head screwdriver to pry the old intake manifold gasket from the engine block. Discard this part once you have removed it.

Clean the engine block thoroughly with the engine degreaser and linen cloth. If necessary, use a gasket scraper to remove excess buildup and grime.

2. Installation

  • Coat the top and bottom of the new intake manifold gasket with a chemical sealer so that it bonds to the engine block securely. Position this new manifold gasket so that it lines up perfectly with the cylinder ports of the Impala's engine block.

Place the old intake manifold on top of the newly-installed manifold gasket until it aligns with all of the holes of the cylinder flanges and manifold gasket.

Attach all of the bolts with your hand to the manifold. Once all bolts have been positioned, use a torque wrench and apply 15 foot-pounds of pressure to the bolts to secure the manifold into place.

Reconnect all of the necessary hoses and electrical wiring to the intake. Pour the engine coolant back into the radiator.

Reattach the engine cover on top of the intake manifold and engine block. Start the Impala's engine and check for any leaks around the new intake manifold gasket.

I have a 2000 chevy impala with a 3.4 motor. Where do you find the thermostate

look for the upper radiator hose on the drivers side top of the engine. Follow it to the metal housing that is bolted to the intake manifold. The thermostat is behind that housing.

It helps to remove the throttle body first if you have never replaced one of these. After you get a couple under you belt there really is no need to pull the throttle body.

The transmission doesn't have a filter. The oil filter is usually on the bottom of the engine. Both have a bolt that can be taken off to drain the fluids. Usually, they are on the bottom. Jack your car up and you should be able to find them, or refer to your manual.

2000 Impala serpetine belt. The engine pulley doesnt line up with the other pulleys. On the tension pulley it is off buy 3/16 of an inch.

It's common for the serpentine tension pulley to fail and will need to be replaced, Auto Zone or NAPA carry the tension pulley you need for your Impala and it's a 15 min job to replace the part. The tension pulley is held on by one bolt through the center of the base of the tension arm and can only be installed one way. Just un-bolt and remove the faulty tension arm, just make sure you have taken the serpentine belt off and might as well replace it since you have it off any ways and keep the old on in the truck. Good luck and hope this helps.

Where is the air pump on a 2000 chevy impALA

Underneath your driver's side front fender (in front of the tire), you will find a black removable panel on the bottom. This panel can be removed or adjusted by removing the three screws attached at the bottom (front) of the fender and two screws inside the wheel well towards the bottom front. With the car jacked up and safetly standing on jack stands, remove the front driver's side tire. You can now fold this black panel back (it has a hinge point for this purpose) and gain access to the secondary air pump.
