My 06 Impala battery dead how do I open my hood

open the door with the key and pull the catch. I have never known a car with anything but a wire pull for the hood, electric trunk yes. The procedure is the same, you need to find an electrical item and put a charger on it. The cigarette lighter for instance. Put the positive on the pin at the bottom, and the negative against the casing or any other earthed item like a bold head on the seats or steering wheel. Or you can look under the engine bay and put the positive on the starter motor red cable, and negative to any earthed part. 5 minutes on charge and everything electrical will work. Not enough to start the car, but enough to open the trunk.

Take a look at the video, and it proves me right :>)

Engine hot a/c off what does that mean

there is a coolant system problem. have a pressure test done on the coolant system to check for leaks. have a compression test done to check for head gasket or cracked head.. Check that the fan is working as required . If you have a viscous fan hub then check that it is working and not free wheeling.. Check radiator cap for operation.. Have a flow test done to ensure that the cores are not partially blocked.

Intake and head gaskets replaced twice. Once at

Have your cylinder heads checked for cracks (aluminum get dye checked, iron get magnafluxed) Also have them checked for warpage. Make sure water passage openings are not "etched" providing a pathway for coolant migration. Problem may also be your assembly technique...If you are making a mistake and repeating it every time you will always get the same result. When torquing head or manifolds divide the final value by three and following the proper pattern use those values and go over it three times increasing by one third each time. This is especially important with aluminum as it helps spread the load better. Also with aluminum, make sure you use a flat washer under the head of every bolt. On race engines I will often run hot water through the block after final tightening, then go over bolts one more time, as most can't be reached after manifolds are installed. You don't need to go that far but it shows just how critical assembly is.
If heads are cracked discard them if warped they can be surface ground or fly cut to regain a level surface. Some shops can also heat them and straighten them. (not iron though) Each time heads are cut it increases compression and on "v" engines alters the intake angle a bit. On inline engines it will change timing belt or chain tension as well. (pulleys will be closer together)
newer heads are not as thick in the deck area either and cutting will remove a degree of strength and can make them more vulnerable to cracks and warpage in the future so don't go too far with that. There are many machine shops that do this work. It requires expensive machines and is beyond the scope of most dealers and general repair shops.(shops send their work them).
Good luck!

2006 chevy impala clogged catalytic converter caused cylinder head to crack. EPA warranties CAT converters but are my heads covered too?

only if its under 3 yr / 36000 mile warranty. if the engine has been running bad, check eng light on/flashing / rich ect, that needs to be repaired, thats what causes the cat to clog up.

How to install speakers in 06 impala

Go from inside the trunk and access speakers and disconnect wiring. You can also pry out the carpet above rear seats. Make sure there are no clips on bottom. There will be 4 screws for each speaker that will need to be removed. For front speakers, you will need to remove all screws in door panel, including window and lock and mirror controls. Then With big flat-head screwdriver and gently pry directly next to plastic studs holding panel on. You should have 4 screws holding on that speaker.

Good luck...i hope this helps, please rate me a fixya.
