Check the cooling system for leaks and make sure radiator and resivoir are filled. Glycerine, the main ingrediant of coolant is thin and oilly, it has a distinct odor.. let me know if I can help you further..MK

Can you please tell me which plug is the 4th one. For a chevy impala ss 5.3 year 2006

On a GM the odd cylinders are on the driver's side, front to back. The even numbered cylinders are on the passenger's side, front to back so #4 would be the second one back on the passenger's side. Hope this helps.

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.

In my 2002 chevy impala only cools down in the passenger side but dose not on the driver side. what is wrong?

I assume that you are talking about your air conditioning. The passenger side blows cold and the drivers side is warm. I had the same problem on a couple of my cars, including my 2002 Impala.
I also assume that you know how to use the climate controls for driver vs. passenger.
You need some freon. It may not need very much... maybe 8-12 ounces.
if you're semi-skilled, you can try it yourself with a kit from the parts store. The dealer or shop will charge you at least $125 and they will look for the leak.
It sounds like you have a slow leak, and that could be tough to find.

It seems that Midas is going to stand behind the work that they did on your car. If there is something happening that they haven't already diagnosed, they should be able to tell you that, too.

My guess is that the green liquid you saw was coolant coming from the overflow of the coolant recovery tank because the system is overheating and the excess pressure is forcing coolant out. There may still be air in the cooling system, or possibly air is getting into the system from a bad head gasket or crack in the head or block. Check to see if there is any evidence of oil in the coolant, or if there is water in the crankcase -- the oil on the dipstick will look 'milky'.
