Question about 2001 Chevrolet Impala

1 Answer

I have a 2001 Chevy Impala. I just bought it about 3 months ago. It has a little over 150k miles on it. It has been running great and I have put about 5k miles on it since I purchased it. It has given me no problems until this past week. It started making a noise, almost sounding like an additional rev to my engine. It only makes noise when I am going above 10 miles an hour. Once I begin to slow down below 10mph it is completely quiet. I don't have any indicator lights on and I check all the fluids. Everything seems to be in order. Anybody have any idea what the problem is and how to fix it?

Try to turn the car while you hear the noise and see if it changes or goes away. It really sounds like a wheel bearing ith the car.

1996 chevy 3500 7.4 vortec. the ecm fuse blows at the turn of a key

One of the power wire going from your ecm to a sensor or solenoid is shorting to ground. Get a wiring diagram and an ohm meter. disconnect the battery and start checking each wire measuring from the wire to ground. as you wiggle you will see the meter show 0 ohms when it is shorted. These are the hardest and most time consuming kind of electrical problems .good luck

I have a 2002 Chevy Tahoe. for the past 6 months

without hearing exact noise it is hard to diagnose. these vehicles had a normal cold start knocking noise due to the low friction rings used allowed piston some extra movement. when carbon builds up on pistons it gets worse will go away after about a minute running. it does not affect life of engine or performance. i think this may be noise you hear. or possible it is a lifter leaking down and taking a while to pump up

I had front and rear differential service done 9 months ago and have put on 4,000 miles since. How often should this work be done?

generally you should change diff fluid about every 12 to 15 thousand miles. However, if you aren't towing or running at high speeds for extended periods, providing that there are no leaks and you use a good quality lube and don't have a positraction differential (posi units are very sensitive to lack of service and can bind up) in the rear, you can have it serviced along with the transmission anywhere between 15 and 20 thousand miles. Rule is, the harder you work it, the more frequent you service it. (Even though I have seen many diffs go 150k without any service, that's not the right way to do it)

We have a 2001 Chevy Impala as well.  About 3 months ago, we encountered the same symptoms.  The catalytic converter was bad and had to be changed out.  The cost, for a universal catalytic converter, was about $300 but this fixed the problem.  I hope this helps.
