Check the vacuum hose from the manifold to the transmission actuator
check the actuator for operation if it is a sealed transmission( gm do not recommend oil changes in transmissions )and it is close to he 60,000 miles mark or longer , then an oil change by an accredited transmission specialist shop would be in order
while there, they could run a fault code check to see if there are electronic problems

SOURCE: Where is the vacuum hose

IF the engine was revving high RPMS it had to be a serious vaccum leak. If the PCV came undone it would cause it rev up quite high. the shaking was from the factory set RPM limiter when not in gear (around 4,000 RPMS) the only other vaccum leak big enough would be for the brake booster. They both have a check valve but that doesn't mean much. I would start there PCV is around 5 bucks and the other is about the same. If you need pics of location I could do that also.

SOURCE: Transmission occasionaly hesitates and I can feel it when it shifts, more than I should.

There are diagnostic tools that could help detect what your problem is. The Snap-On Modis, or preferably a "Tech-2" GM scanner. Any reputable transmission shop, or GM dealer should have at least one of the two. It sounds to me like it could be the transmissions "EPC" (Electronic Pressure Control solenoid) The EPC controls main line pressure, in an effort to keep shift firmness, and shift duration at one specific level. This is to compinsate for the natural wear a transmission encounters, and to keep emissions as low as possable, by keeping shift duration low. When the EPC malfunctions (and thats somthing that they like to do in the 4t65E), it typically starts to shift harder than normal. They typically throw a P1811 code. (P1811 is a "max adapt-long shift" code) And the malfunction can be intermittent. Hope this helps, and good luck.

SOURCE: hard shifting Impala, sometimes.

Sounds like the vacumn modulator isn't connected. Like the hose has come off, or there is a tear in the hose. (4t60-E transmission)

4t65-E transmission is a different ballgame. Check the electrical connector to the side of the tranny. Make sure it's plugged in tight, and there is no corrosion on the connectors. Past this point it's time to check sensors. WSS, (Wheel Speed Sensor), and VSS, (Vehicle Speed Sensor)
Make sure these connections aren't corroded, and are on tight on both transmissions.
(Don't know which one you have. 4t60-E, or 4t65-E. I suspect you have the 4t60-E. It will state this on the transmission oil pan in raised letter/numbers)

Usually caused by a problem with the engine air intake. Check the entire intake system including the filter and throttle body, and particularly the MAP (mass air flow) sensor and the IAC (idle air control motor).

My 2008 chevy impala with 3.5 v6 sputters and hesitates going up hill, always between 1500 and 200 rpms, why?


Check for a vacuum leak, Faulty emissions system, Check plugs and wires for damage, Fault in fuel or electrical system and incorrect fuel grade. Try these things first. Hope that Helps

My 2005 chevy impala started jerking and then it wouldnt chnage gears unless i press the gas all the way to the floor is it the transmission?


no on 05 chevy the transmisson shift is control by vacume look for a vacume line that is dry rooted or has come off start at the engine first then work the way down to the transmisson. a line off or dry rotted any where in the syastem will give you a hard shift sometiimes like a hard jerking motion when
shifting.

Plug the vacuum line you unplugged and the idle should come back. Change your air filter and the map sensor. check for correct coolant level and replace the coolant temp. sensor. This sensor affects cold starting and idle through the ECU (open loop mode, rich fuel mapping and 1200 rpm idle) It should go to closed loop mode in the ECU once engine warm up is achieved ( lean fuel mapping and normal 900 rpm idle). Do not unplug anything else till you perform an OBDII scan of the stored fault history

I have 2 questions. First of all I just got a 2005 Chevy Impala and the speedometer works when it wants to. I noticed that when I turn the key in the ignition the speedometer goes down and eventually will...


As for the first problem it could be a speed sensor in the transmission. Do you have a check engine light on? You need to drive it with a scanner on it to check the speed sensor. If the sensor is reading fine but the speedo doesn't read right you likely need to replace the cluster. As for the second problem, this is a common one on the 4t65E trans. You need to replace the Transmission Pressure Control Solenoid.

Especially when the car is cold, the car jerks when shifting from first to second gear. When sitting at a light and then pressing the gas to go, the car hesitates before it moves.


Sounds like 2 different problems. Have san done if code 1811 comes up that is EPC in the trans. Other problem could be mass airflow sensor.
