Question about 2001 Chevrolet Impala

1 Answer

Car sputterd and stalled while driving.

I have been having problems with my 2001 Impala LS 3.8 V6. Sometimes it wont start for around 10 minutes or so. I almost always have to give it gas while turning the key to start it. I have replaces the starter, battery and fuel pump regulator. Today it actually sputtered and stalled while driving it. It did this for about 10 mins and then went away. I do have some fault codes. Something with the ECU and one with the EGR. I dont know what to do.

ECU is the engine computer and the EGR valve allows exhaust gas to recirculate back into the intake manifold at certain times and is usually vacuum controlled. EGR valves are replaced fairly often because of the high heat from the exhaust. Check for a loose or damaged vacuum hose (or if an electrically controlled valve, look for loose wires, or connector). ECU faults may or may not require replacement of the unit. Have you replaced the fuel filter?

Why does a 1995 foed mustang gt just stall and wont restart.


Very late but for anyone else with this problem. I used to have this occur when I drove around for a bit. I'd drive and after 5-20 mins the car would just stall on me. It wouldn't start immediately and sometimes just waiting an hour or 2 and trying again made it start and drivable for a few minutes again. The problem was the ignition coil. I spent over $1400 changing parts to find out it was an $18 fix and took 10 mins to swap out. If the rpms do jump around a lot then yes the stator would be the problem. If it just stalls even while driving, it's the ignition coil. If neither, test the voltage regulator. Hope this help. Happy driving!!

Traction light on , reduce engine power lights on 07 ss impala what does that sound like .


I know this is not a solution but I too started having this same problem today. Start car, runs normal then all the sudden it feels funny, traction control light blinks on and dash displays service traction control-reduced engine power. This causes my car to sputter like it is going to stall I have to pull over and turn my car off and back on to drive off (only for it to do it within the next 10 minutes). I thought turning TC off would work for now just to drive it, no not successful stil does it : ( I TOOK IT TO AUTO ZONE AND HAD IT SCANNED HAD A CODE FOR GROSS EVAC LEAK AND SOMETHING ABOUT THE THROTTLE PLATE/BODY NOT SURE IF THAT IS RELATED BUT THAT ALL THE INFO I HAVE ON THAT.

2002 impala intermitenly wont start


I would clean the battery connecters or possibly change them. How old is the battery? sometimes when battery get old, they have enough juice to crank the motor but not enough to start it..But then again, if it doesn't crank at all sometimes, it could certainly be a bad or loose battery terminals..Start with this since its the simplest and easiest and could very well be your problem. hope this helps

have your idle speed sensor cleaned,also checkd the air flow sensor located in the air cleaner housing,you best bet is to have it scanned for PCM soft codes(codes that wont turn on the check engine light on)

I have replaced the radiator in my 2003 Chevrolet Impala LS. The car started running hot and shut down. Took it to a radiator shop and found a crack in the radiator. I have replaced 2 thermostats in the car already. I noticed water running from under my car today and it seems it was coming back out of the overflow. I am stumped as to what is going on with this car.
