Try plugs and wires. The cap and rotor are kind of expensive and not real easy to change so try the plugs and wires first.

1996 chevy impala ss


the spark on your engine is controled by a componet called "opti-spark" it is located behind the water bump. it acts as your distribitor and ignition coil. they are a bit time consuming to change out and are very expensive! i would suggest having your local chevrolet dealer diagnose it just to be sure due to the expense involved for this unit. i hope this helps you..good luck

ps as i recall from my chevy dealership days, i beleive it was around $1000 installed..but that was a few years ago..proice could change either way now..

Rear diff


This sounds more like a transmission issue than the rear differential. It's possible that you have a damaged or mis-adjusted shift linkage or possibly a bad shift solenoid. Transmission fluid might be low, but I'm guessing you already checked the fluid with then engine warmed up and running. When it does run, does it vibrate? This could be an indicator that you have a bad seal in your torque converter and are losing fluid from it.
