    Had mechanic friend look but only had about 5 minutes... he says on sensor&/or cat and for ac actuator door and possible leak. Any way to test an O2 sensor Or cat converter?? I'm a single mom and can only afford to fix the real issue. ... not all of this to find out its something else. Appreciate your time and help.

You have 2 faults here. Get a good local mechanic to run through a few basic tests, cylinder compression, oil in the water, water in the oil. Rough running. My guess the head gasket has gone because white smoke is usually water in the engine.
Your AC is down to a further investigation.

02 impala gas mileage between 10-13. Abs/ traction control lights on... ac also blows only cool on passenger side. Hot on driver side... already tried charging worked only for a few minutes. ..HELP


Abs and traction control work with each other. You have a fault in one of the system need to get scanned.The a/c have a blockage in system or maybe a leak. The gas mileage probably has to do with abs/traction control

2004 chevy impala the split heat and air switch question is why would the drivers side not get hot when you turn it on heat and on ac doesnt get as cold as passenger side need help passenger side will get...


There is a motor that controls the blend door for the driver's side, that may be faulty, or you may have a stuck or broked dr side blend door.You can access this part by removing the dr side underdash panel, and the dr side knee bolster.

I have an 01 Impala 3.8 engine. At first start-up white smoke is seen, smells like raw gas, and tail pipe is black as coal. Fuel milage isn't good either. Would the regulator be bad?

Gets hot on passenger side stays cold on drivers side on 2004 chevy impala


Possible that the vent is blocked if you meant that the car is not cooling with the AC. If so check the flow of air on the vent , remove and clean the vent.
However if there is heat coming in to the passenger side then the engine room insulation can be open or there is a possible leak from the engine room that allows hot air to flow into the passenger side than the driver side.
I hope this was what you meant, if not clarify once again.
