Friend,
If it is the temperature light ( not the check engine light) you may wish to check and see if the engine is actually hot.
(Be advisesd. An overheated engine is really serious! )
With the engine not running and cold, and the car level, take off the radiator cap very slowly to relieve the pressure, be certain the radiator is full, and then start the car.
Stand back in case the radiator blows antifreeze out.
Now start he car, and with the engine running, and when the temperature light is on, very carefully feel or smell the radiator and top radiator hose. If these are not hot, you problem may be a stuck thermostat. If the thermostat is stuck, you should sense the heat by smelling and listening to the motor.
If you have an overheating issue, please refrain from driving the car until it is fixed, or you could totally destroy the motor.
Also, there are 2 electric blower fans behind your radiator. One is for engine temperature, one is for the air conditioning circuit.
If the temperature light comes on, one of the blower fans should be running. If neither is, that may be your problem.
Be sure to leave your heater/air conditioner off during this test.
The most common problem is a bad temperature sensor for the fan, then a bad fan itself. After that, a stuck thermostat.
Blessings on your figuring this out.

How can I reset the low coolant level light on 02 impala


It will reset when the level is corrected. If the level is correct then the sensor is bad or unplugged. Sensor is located in the overflow tank.

I have chevy impala 2002 and lately I have been hearing water sloshing (sounds like it s coming from the dashboard...), any idea what is it? and can be fixed?


Sounds like air in your heater core. That's the only place fluid comes into passenger compartment. To eliminate, make sure coolant level is filled completely or have cooling system flushed.

2002 Impala: check coolant light comes on occasionally but doesn't over heat; assume it's dirty and I need to flush the radiator. Where is the drain/petcock? Do I use garden hose to rinse out?


THE CHECK COOLANT SENDER UNIT MAY BE IN THE OVERFLOW TANK (HEADER BOTTLE) CHECK THE LEVEL IN THAT
OR IF IT IS IN THE RADIATOR ITSELF THEY CAN GATHER A SLIME ON THEM FROM THE COOLANT ADDATIVES.
REMOVE IT AND CLEAN IT AND REFIT
