problem #3

Feb 102011

Impala LTZ V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 58,000 miles

I noticed at when stopped (not accelerating) my heat in the car would blow out cold air. But, until i would accelerate the heat would then turn on. My cars engine warms up and stays warm just my heat is cold. Not good for Michigan weather. I was told that i can get an extended warranty on my car for $500 so i think i might do that instead of paying the 1500 dollars.

problem #2

Impala LT 3.9L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 51,000 miles

Noticed one cold day that we were not getting any heat whenever we would stop at a light, but it would return when we would accelerate. When I got home I refilled the coolant and checked for visible leaks. A few weeks later it happened again. Dealership confirmed a blown head gasket. The repair took an entire day but was thankfully covered under the extended power train warranty.
