Question about Chevrolet Impala
I have a 2001 chevy impala with about 150,000 miles on it. It sat for about 2 weeks and when I went to drive it again it has a rough idle and shudders and sputters whenever I drive it, mainly on acceleration(flat and uphill). kind of feels like its going to shut off because of a lack of gas, but the gas is fine no water in it. I used heet and a fuel line/injector cleaner just in case and still have a problem. It was fine before I parked it aside from random high idle and slight forced acceleration whenever it felt like doing so, once or twice every 6 months or so.

If tank got no drain plug either remove fuel sender/pump from top of tank & pump out & clean with rag on a wire (long & tedious) or remove tank & do the same

Did you wash the engine? If you did, you most likely have water in the spark plug area or within the plug wires. It don't mean you had to wash the engine, but the water can still get there. It may take it a couple of hours to dry out if this is the problem. I have driven one like this for 20-30 min for the engine to dry it out.

First of all there is a vacume leak, second how is the air filter?, tell the husband to change the MAF mass air flow sensor and I would also change the TEMP tempreature sensor.
