problem #3

Impala 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 97,500 miles
: the contact stated the engine would not start after the vehicle was parked overnight. Initially, it was suspected the battery was discharged and the battery was charged for twenty minutes. Afterwards, the contact attempted to start the vehicle, with the key in the ignition, and the intake manifold exploded. A large fireball along with pieces of the intake manifold and the engine cover shot out of the underhood area. The vehicle was towed to a dealer for inspection. The dealer determined the backfiring occurred due to the contact starting the engine while applying the accelerator pedal. The manufacturer was alerted.

While driving could see the battery light come on, then engine will stall. Consumer will turn ignition off for 10-15 minutes, then restart again. On last visit to dealer, they found the problem to be due to improperly connected wires. Repairs were made, no problems since.
