Your catalytic converter is plugged up,  If you check the exhaust output at the tailpipe you will find it restricted.
Let me know if I  can assist further.

SOURCE: The temp gauge on my 2003 chevy impala is pegged hot when idling, but goes down as I drive. Is this a thermostat problem?

The most probable cause is air in the system. If all fans kick on then it can only be air in the system or problem would accure when driving too. A pocket of air will cause a small vortex and it take far more pressure to get anything around it. Like fluid. To burp the system....when your car is cooled off, remove the radiator cap and then start it will push all the air out the top and you will see bubbles and maybe even some fluid shoot out. Just make sure you add back to correct levels when all done. This running process has taken me as long as 30 mins to get all the way out. Its easy and free but DO keep an eye on the temp guage while the cars just idealing to get the air out.

My 2007 Chevy Silverado loses power when I come to a complete stop no engine lights appear but if I turn off the truck the problem goes away for awhile .

Loss of power, but no mention of rough or inability to idle (including stalling). If those additional symptoms are part of the problem, check for a vacuum leak to the intake. Listen for hissing or sucking noises near air hoses. Look for loose, cracked, or broken air hose connections. Check PCV valve...Cheap to replace, could be sticking, then loosen after truck sitting with engine off. A vacuum leak will not give any light indications, and vehicle will seem to run normal when applying gas, but will want to stall or run rough (or want to stall) when at idle or sometimes when taking foot off gas when slowing down.

I have a 1976 buick regal 350 engine and the oil light comes on when the engine gets hot and it is at an idle. when you give it gas the light goes out. could this be the oil sending unit and if so where is...

it might be the sending unit, is it a buick 350 or a chevy. 350? if a buick engine the sinding unit should be on the side of the timing cover if a chevy 350 next to the dist.

remove the oil sinding unit and install a manuel gauge and see just what the oil pressure is if below 10 psi at hot idle replace the bearings and oil pump in the engine. if this is a chevy 350 make sure you replace the camshaft bearings this is were we use to see the gratest oil pressure loss.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

If that's the case then the problem will be on the MAF (mass air flow) sensor. If the MAF is faulty the car tends to loose power and erratic idle may occur. One good reason why you are having this issues. I strongly suggest that you have it replaced to resolve the problem.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

1992 Chevy Silverado idles rough why?

Check your MAP and TP sensors. Your throttle body may be having trouble determining position and is compensating by adjusting RPMs.

When weather hot engine light comes on and engine idles high ,starts to overheat on 1992 Buick Century

High idle is computer controlled to try to get fan moving enough air to cool it down (so that part is normal) check that electric fan comes on and check clutch on mechanical fan if you have one. If all OK, radiator may be partially internally plugged or may have leaves stuck between it and a/c condenser.
