Oddly enough, my "Change engine oil" light came on at 100,017...guess it's time to change those spark plugs too!
2014 Malibu 2LT, 2015 Cruze 2LT,
I hope that helps explain things and if you have questions, please let me know.
And yes, I'm still digging out today. :sick:
To be quite honest with you, under the circumstances and feeling the way I do right now , :confuse: I think the best thing for me to do here is to just take a long deep breath, and then give myself some space from all this...
I'm sure we'll all talk again one day !
Have fun and drive safe.
Based on the current setup, maybe it does make sense to make this forum the more community-oriented one, and then post things that are pertinent in the other topic-specific forums. There'll end up being some duplication, but I'd rather find myself reading some things twice, than coming here and finding nothing new to read at all.
It might help the diagnosis if you can give an example of how/when the car overheats...how you were driving, for how long, weather conditions, etc. When you say it's overheating, is it literally spewing coolant somewhere, and/or is the temp gauge getting into the red zone...or is the gauge reading hotter than "normal" but below the red zone?
I do not own one, YET, but I am seriously considering one. My question is should I buy a new 07 because Chevrolet has fixed these problems or should I save a couple grand buying an 06?
BTW, it will be an LT/V-6 :shades:
Thanks for any and all recommendations/suggestions.
So, do ya think, we are all getting too close here...?? I don't want to cause a problem for y'all, but hey, Ron, Bryan, if you care to, please help me with some of your usual good reasoning here..Calm me down...i'm ticked!!
Frank, don't feel like you're being uninvited. I'm sure the '07 crowd will value our insight and experience and enjoy rubbing it in as to how their FOBs worked as advertised from the start.
here , but I'm willing to work with it ....I still consider this to be one of the best, if not the best , Impala forum's around !! Great bunch of Guys. Some times we (I) get a little emotional and wrapped up in our(my) way of thinking and we (I)can't see the forest for the trees, as they say. So thank you to my two friends who made some very valid points and helped me through this..!! Much appreciated Ron,& Bryan .! I knew I could count on you to impart some wisdom...
And Karen, sorry for being such a pain in the back-side here, you do a great job..... I know it's not easy!!
Hey guys....I love my Chevy !!!
Hi there my friend....just wanted to make sure everything ok..??
That sure was a rip roaring posting !! :mad:
Gee, I wonder what you would have done if GM made a Leprechaun green available back in '06.. :surprise: Hmmmmmmmmmm very interesting !!! This would have certainly set you apart from you know who...!!
Well, I'm am sort of an inquisitive guy here for the most part and some thing has just hit me !! Ya, probably a little slow on the up-take.... I sometimes like to figure out what's behind certain names here... I realize that it could be kind of personal and certainly none of my business .But, is it Colonel Bryan Chester..??
Sorry you're experiencing problems so early into ownership. For the key fob issue, you might want to check out this discussion
Chevrolet Impala Key Fob Questions
Yes, there is a " Technical Service Bulletin" (TSB) and fix for your Fob (transmitter)problems...See post # 47 for actual TSB explanation and then read all our experiences and comments etc. in this discussion title.
Sorry... A LITTLE CORRECTION HERE ...SHOULD HAVE READ .. SEE POST # 47 UNDER THE " KEY FOB QUESTIONS TITLE" ...
Wasn't the TSB or '06 models? I think he's the first with an '07 with problems. I think when I take mine in, I'll check the FOBs on a new '07 while I'm there. Maybe it's just been too early to hear about the '07s? Hmmmm....
My understanding is that the current TSB covers all 2006 and 2007 Chevrolet Impala and Monte Carlo models....see copy of TSB in posting # 47 of this discussion title.....
Well, I don't think they are all exempt from this... Some of the guys around here are having the same 'ole problems with some of their '07's. Let me know your experience when you find out.
To be on the safe side, I thought I better post over here...As you well know, Karen has her wicked wrist slap thing , but Kirstie ??!! Geee, I don't like blood and stuff... You never know who's lurking about now.. do you !!
Sooooo, anyway, Something just hit me here..!!
With all your senority here (no not age) with this forum, and your vast histoical Impala experience and knowledge, why aren't you Hosting.?? You get my vote.
Enjoy the day...
FYI: The 4/13/01 start date was when we went to a different software vendor.
Anyway, I hate to see you go; I'll likely hang around here for at least another couple of years until I decide what I'm going to buy next. I'm trying to stay loyal to GM if I can, but lots of things could change in the next two years.
I know you will be missed, by me and others. Happy cruising, er, spinning.
I am changing my brakes and rotors on 2008 Impala LT. Can someone tell me what tool I need to actually remove the rotor off the hub? Is it the star shaped bolt (allen)on the disc? If yes what size would that be?
