Coolant Leaking problems of the 2001 Chevrolet Impala
Two problems related to coolant leaking have been reported for the 2001 Chevrolet Impala.
Coolant Leaking problem #1
The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) is 2G1WF55E81_. The owner has a 2001 Chevrolet Impala. The contact stated that the temperature gauged indicated that the vehicle was overheating but the contact did not notice a coolant leak or any smoke. The contact took the vehicle to a local mechanic for a diagnostic. The mechanic replaced a sensor. After the repair the check engine warning light illuminated and the temperature gauged still indicated that the vehicle overheating. The mechanic suggested the contact take the vehicle to the dealer. The contact did not take the vehicle to the dealer. The contact also stated that the steering wheel made a strange sound when turned. In addition, the steering wheel would jerk abnormally. The contact took the vehicle to a local mechanic and the mechanic advised that there was an issue with the steering shaft. The failure mileage was 70,000. It was Friday, March 23, 2012 when this coolant leaking issue occurred.
Coolant Leaking problem #2
The car involved is a 2001 Chevrolet Impala. The VIN of the car is 2G1WF52E11_. There is a huge amount of oil in the coolant in my 2001 chevy Impala. Knowing just a little about internal combustion engines probably an intake gasket leaking. For a car which has been very well maintained with under 80,000 miles on the odometer this was alarming. High engine temp and a sludge in my motor are the obvious consequences. Who knows what the long term affects will be. The car is now at the mechanics and already I am looking at 700 to 1,000 dollars which I do not have to repair. This issue happened on Friday, Nov. 24, 2006.
