Question about 2005 Chevrolet Impala

3 Answers

I have a 2005 chevrolet impala v6. In the mornings I go out and start the car to warm up, when I go to get back in the car after warming up the fuel smell is very strong inside the car. After I get going down the road the smell goes away and doesnt come back until I start the car again to warm up. Do you have any suggestions?

You probably have the same problem i do with my car. My fuel regulator is leaking. I have to go have it replaced. It has taken us a year to find the problem because after the car is warm it doesn't leak. Good luck with it.....my car is the same year, make, and model. They must have just not made these very well. I have had one problem after another with it.

I have a 2005 impala it blows cold air only.the thermostate is set at the hottest setting.i dont think its the heater core because it does not overheat and its not leaking antifreeze.what could it be?


It's more than likely the thermostat. If you have a 3800 V6 this is a very quick and easy fix. It you have a 3400 engine, this can be a pretty frustrating job. The bolts that hold the thermostat housing on are very difficult to get at on a 3400 engine. Either way, the thermostat itself is only $10-$12.

If your thermostat is stuck open the engine coolant will constantly circulate and won't warm up to normal operating temperature. Since it isn't warming up, you won't have any heat inside either.

Just purchases my 2005 Impala. It should get a combined 26 mpg, but I am getting about 13 mpg. Its the base model 3.4 v6. Doing mostly city driving with occasional highway


Combined fuel ecomony is based on 50/50 driving between city and highway. But I agree that 13 mpg is quite a bit down from that!

Do you have a "check engine" light staying on while you drive?
I am guessing you don't or you would have mentioned it.

Bad fuel economy with no warning indicator can be a sign of problems with low fuel pressure or a non-functioning coolant temp sensor.

The coolant sensor can be reading in the cold range and keeping the car in a "cold/starting" condition that won't allow for the car to adjust to being warmed up.

I would have the car checked for any error codes by a local shop or parts store that offer cheap or free scans. At least to rule out the coolant sensor or fuel pump. The fuel pump will eventually go completely out if it is going bad so better to know now than later! Fuel pumps are expensive to replace and you will want time to save up for the job!

Good luck and be careful.

If this car is remote start GM has a service bulletin out to do a computer flash to correct this problem, it will probably blow hot air in the summer if it remote started if you don't have the computer flash done. Hope this helps
