Impala 3.4L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 130,000 miles


I just replaced my engine on my 2002 impala 3.4L V6, i reinstalled everything the way it went. When i went to crank over the, nothing happened, no clicking noise coming from started the fuel pump doesn't come on. When i turn the key to the start position and crank the key the lights on the dash turn off. I was able to crank the engine thought the starter with a bump starter and sprayed starting fluid through intake and the motor turned over beautifully,, but the damn car won't turn over with the key? has anyone experienced this before after installing a new engine.

This problem started as soon as I purchased my car.I was out of town, and all I remember doing was praying my car was not going to quite on me there.After the 1st time the problem didn't present itself again until months later.Stalling when i crank it about every other month.That the turn into weeks.I had the battery tested,and bought one,only to find out that it was doin the same thing.The next day I had the starter and alternator checked and that was not the problem.Even after puttin it on the machine at Chevorlet it still tested that nothing was wrong with it.It is entirely too hot to sit in your car praying that it cranks,and it does only whe it wants too.It should be recale an fixed at their expense.

Impala LS

  • Automatic transmission
  • 58,000 miles

I just bought a used 2002 Chevy Impala and had it been inspected by two separate mechanics. Both of them had said the car was in excellent condition and the only thing the car needed was four new tires within the next 2,000 miles. The day after the car was at the mechanics it would take several tries to turn on the engine. I would run an errand and be inside a store for no more than 15min and my car will not start until the 5th or 6th attempt. It has been doing this the last several days. I also found out that the car will not start at all if any of the car doors are open.

Impala V6

Ok... this f*cking car.... I have missed days from work because it would not start, then hours later it starts. 2 days ago i went to get my kids from daycare and we were stuck there because it did not start back up had it towed to shop after hours next morning when they went out to my car it started with no problem so i had to pay 6$67 for towing for nothing basically. Its july and I got this car in March off a friends brother, the car pissing me off. when i drive the security light pops on here ands there. a few times it has stalled. iv noticed lately that when i lock the car with my key ring things that its hesitant on doing so, it does it just a lot slower then usual.... WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON???
