Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2005 Chevrolet Impala Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 012009

Impala 3.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 141,000 miles


So i noticed that my engine is ticking when i first start it n the morning . I'm thinking its the lifters ? But I'm not sure . Lately its been getting louder because the weather has been getting colder . But i just bought the car last month on craigslist for a steal 3100 . Because i totaled my 01 impala on my birthday . I'm going to take the motor and trans out because the trans is starting to slip . And i figured while i have everything out I'm going to do the tune up on the engine as well . I already have a high volume oil pump for it because the better the oil pressure i figured the better off it will be . So my question is this what parts need to be changed in order for the ticking to stop . It does have the right oil level in it i even put lucus in it . I really like the impala it is great in the snow and i like the design of the body . My old 1 had 165k and my friends impala has 198k and its a chevy it will last through hell . So any ideas or comments ?
