Changing oil pan gasket on 02 impala ls 3.8
The engine does have to be raised. The bolts are not easy to get to until the engine is lifted and the engine mount is removed. I'm doing this job right now and the book time is around 5 hours.
My 2002 Chevy impala seems to be spitting out a little water from the exhaust.i
Fuels, petrol or diesel, are known as hydrocarbon (hydrogen and carbon) fuels and so when burned in air (oxygen) one of the resulting products is a considerable amount of H2O or water.
Mostly this is expelled through the exhaust as vapour but at certain times, such as when the air is cold and dry and the engine and exhaust system is cool, the vapor will condense and emerge as steam and water droplets.
When a vehicle has lots of short journeys, the exhaust can become waterlogged where the silencers can retain a great deal of water and are likely to be spitting water droplets almost continuously. Often the sound at the tailpipe will be more harsh than usual. Some manufacturers have a small hole at the lowest point of a silencer to allow surplus water to drain away and sometimes a mechanic will drill a hole...
Spitting water and emitting steam is often seen as a sign of a failing head gasket and the confusion is understandable as it is a natural function and could be a symptom of head gasket trouble but it is a symptom that should not warrant much attention in isolation - clearly if a failing head gasket is the source of water spitting from the tailpipe, the coolant level will be mysteriously falling without obvious leakage and often the engine will suffer a misfire on starting...

How to replace rear wheel bearing on driver side
You have a bearing hub (sealed unit) To remove it, first remove the nut from the axle in the hub center, Remove caliper and brake rotor. You can access the hub attachment bolts through the holes in the wheel flange. You may need to put a chisel between the hub and knuckle (keep alternating sides) to break it free (they generally get pretty rusted in) use a good amount of solvent. Once it's out, clean the cavity and put a swipe of grease inside so new one goes in more easily. draw it tight evenly and replace remainder of what you removed. If it is extremely rusted you can rent a slide hammer to get it out but generally with a bit of patience they do break free.
2002 chevy impala 3.4 temp gauge flucuation
A couple of things. Your thermostat could be stuck or you have air i your coolant system. Bleed your coolant system. If the coolant is low, you can also have that issue so check for a coolant leak. If you check your oil and it looks like chocolate milk, then you could have a blown head gasket. Check all of these first.
