My 2004 3.4 6cyl base impalas "hot coolant temp" light came on and the reservoir tank is half way full now when cool. It wasn't a week ago, I haven't added any fluids, what could be the problem?

seems that you have a coolant leak somewhere and when cooling down the leak is sealing and drawing back reservoir water
could simply be a radiator cap problem
have a coolant pressure test done
check under the water pump body for a leak under running and pressure

Overheating impala

What you are describing is a lack of coolant flow in the engine or radiator, or lack of air flow thru the radiator.
If you are sure the coolant level is ok, and flow is good, I would check for a restriction in air flow thru the condenser and radiator.

2004 Impala ls temperature dash gauge

fans came late on those car,like 212 and second fan comes on at 224,you reprogram it to come a lot sooner,,other thing is there might be gunk inside the block,and coolant has hard time to pass through,and staying longer than enough in block temp goes high,even tough the radiator is doing it's job,it is just coming out block lot hotter than it suppose to be,and gauge read the block not the radiator

06 impala bleed air out of cooling system

Put heater on high heat to circulate water in those hoses and heater core. Then start the car after removing the radiator cap and filling with coolant to the top. When the radiator opens you will see the liquid level go down- add more coolant and keep adding till it stays full. Meanwhile fill the overflow to recommended level. When radiator level goes down no more, put radiator cap back on and let engine and coolant cool. If any more water is needed the vacuum created by the shrinking water will draw it in from the overflow.

I have a 2003 chevy Impala. The hot coolant light keeps coming on and temp gauge goes up. We have changed the thermostat replace the gaskets. Has new radiator and new fan. NOthing has helped. Dont know...

It could be a blown head gasket. Check for water bubbles on the oil dipstick, and for oil in the radiator. Also, get rid of all that water in the radiator. and replace it with a quality anti- freeze / anti-boil solution. Then have a good tune-up. Check and replace , if needed, the spark plugs. Ensure that the gap is right. Same/same for points. Then check the timing. Those things should get you going again. Please don't forget to rate this answer.

Just replaced my thermostat on 2004 Impala. Temperature guage goes from cold to hot then goes back down. Heat seems to work when the temperature guage is lower but as soon as it goes up the heat turns...

i going to assume you have the 3.4L or 3.8 L motor
these motors are notorious for trapping air in coolant system
which sounds like what your problem is
not a problem tho they have bleeder screw built into them
there should be one or two bleeders (depending on model year and motor size)
i think yours should have two
one should be on top of thermostat housing
other one right above water pump on bypass tube
open one bleeder at time with motor running until u see just water and no air
repeat with other bleeder
continue to work back and forth between the two bleeders until thermostat opens
then work back and forth a couple times after thermostat opens
keep checking radiator add coolant as needed

Changing hoses

not hard at all drain the coolant, loosen or cut the hose clamps and remove the hoses,replace with new hoses and fill with coolant, then start car and when coolant fills the block add coolant to top off system and replace radiator cap, as long as your doing this replace the radiator cap with a new one

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 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!)
