You will have to do a lot of maintenance work on this vehicle before you can expect it to start. Items connected with the fuel system(pump, filters ,carby bad fuel ) will all have to be looked at.Ignition system (Coil, Distributor, HT leads, plugs will all have to be inspected for corrosion, rust and rotten insulation). An oil change and filter change should be done as the water held in the sump oil will be showing signs of gunking up and not lubricating all the oiled parts properly.. Transmission and diffs will be rusted above the oil level line. If you expect just to start it up and be on your merry way then you may be lucky for a few miles but then you will be facing repair bills from leaking oil seals ,failing bearings and inconsistant gear changing

SOURCE: 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..

SOURCE: 1996 impala ss air conditioner compressor is very noisy

That clutch and coil are serviceable without replacing the compressor but I have had little success with this as usually the clutch gets in that shape subsequently from activity going on inside the compressor which means that clutch is failed generally for a reason.replace the compressor -orfice tube-reciever drier and happy motoring......

SOURCE: gear shift stuck in park and can't push in the

this is a shot in the dark since could be many things, but check the brake light switch, you have to put on brake to shift from park, had this happen on a ford ranger once, the switch worked under light pressure as far as lights were concerned but required heavy pressure to shift

SOURCE: how do u replace a heater core on a 1994-1996

That is usually a worst case scenario. Most of them just need to be flushed from the engine side. Unless it is leaking into the passenger side of the car, you probably only need to run a garden hose thru the inlet and outlet pipes to the core on the engine side of the firewall. Then you must bleed the air out of the system with the bleed valve located near the water pump/Optispark as you refill with green standard antifreeze. Try to choose one without silicone and absolutely under NO circumstances use the manual recommended Dex-Cool.

It could be the alternator is not charging the battery. the people at Auto Zone can check for free if you can get it started and drive it there. some chevy alternators will work fine till they get hot, then they quit working.

you need to determine if you have spark at plugs or how much fuel pressure your pump is putting out.you will need at least 55 psi of fuel to fire.
