More than likely from what you have described, this is going to be a head gasket failure.......You can do a simple engine block test by going to your local auto parts store and buying the kit(for about $25).It's a simple easy test, and it takes about five minutes.If this fails the test then it's time to tear those heads off and replace the gaskets.......get back to me if you have any other questions, rate me accordingly. Thx.

Why Am I Loseing Anti Freese Out The Radiator But i Find No Leaks Under My 2002 Chevy Monte Carlo


You are probably losing the coolant when the car is driving; when the water pump is pressurizing the system and if you are moving you won't see a puddle. Try idling your car for 15 minutes in your driveway & then look for the leak.

Just bought my 2008 Chevy Impala and I love it except when I use the remote start or just start normal, it does not heat up unless I am driving down the road. It blows cold air until i drive. Is this...


You may be low on coolant - or have an air bubble in the heater core! Make sure you have the right antifreeze and mix 50/50 with water. Start car, turn heater on max heat full blast and fill reservoir with coolant. If you have access to the radiator cap I would fill from there. This is a pressurized system, so it may blow some coolant out at you. Squeeze upper radiator hose to ensure it is full, cap radiator and now recheck the reservoir. If this doesn't help, you'll need to raise the front of the vehicle so the radiator cap is above the heater core hoses. Remove cap, start engine with heater and blower on high and fill radiator. Cap radiator before you lower the car and you should be good. Keep an eye on the coolant reservoir as you may have a leak which would cause the low coolant symptom. You also have a sensor to tell you is you are low on coolant. If you are and it is not lighting up, you may want to have it ( the sensor) tested and replaced.
Good luck!!

My chevy impala smells like the radiator liquid is burning and the check engine light came i put coolant in there and the check engine light went off but it came back on. it seems to be leaking coolant but...


Check the front passenger side carpet and make sure it is dry. If it is wet, the heater core up under the dash is leaking, which is why you smell it in the cab.

Impala 2002 stalls when driving now white exhaust when starting it, any ideas


white exhaust is caused by moister i9n the engine. if it smells like burnt coolant it is a coolant leak that can be a faulty head gasket. If the white exhaust is not very heavy and only a faint soke for a few minutes, there is nothing to worry about. Engines when ran and get to operating tempretures (195 degrees) normally burn out all moister. If the engine is ran for a very short time then shut off, moister does set in and will cause this smoke you see

2004 Chevy Impala no heat from defrost or heater


No heat is often a symptom of low coolant, usually followed by overheat. There are other controls that regulate heater, but right now, re-fill the cooling system with engine running and heater on high, then check for leaks (coolant you lost went somewhere...you need to determine where) Low coolant will damage your engine. Take care of that first, then if heater still does not work, then do diagnosis on that. (if you loose the engine heat won't matter, will it!)

2006 Chevy Impala Heater only works when accelorater is depressed


Impalas are known for this issue, where the heating won't work properly.... usually caused by trapped air/bubbles in cooling system or slightly low coolant level. Park car so that the right front side is elevated and remove the coolant OVERFLOW bottle cap (NEVER the radiator cap) while engine is running.. This should allow the trapped air to escape. Also add a bit more coolant if needed.

Thermostat on 2002 Chevy Impala


the best thing to get is the Haynes manual for your car at advanced auto or autozone or somewhere like that and the book will tell you how to take everything apart and put it back. i think the manual is about $16.00
