2002 Chevrolet Impala Repair Question
2002 impala hesitates going up hill in hot weather
Thanks in advance!
See if it gets worse with the ac on if the ac works?Also have you checked for codes in the computer?
Yes the air cond. works very well and the hesitation happens if it is on or off. The check engine light has not turned on. Any way to check codes without a handheld reader?
I was asking if it was worse with the ac on?Also no way to check codes on that car without atleast a code reader.Amazon has the basic one for like 20 and you can get one that reads some live data for 50 something on amazon.
It is worse with the air on. Will I get codes without the check engine light in?
You can still have codes without a check engine light.If its worse with the ac on it could be spark plug wires spark plugs etc.
I also noticed that at times, when i step on it that there is a sound like a tuning harp that comes from what sounds like behind the radio. Vacuum leak. Think its related?
Could be a vacuum leak but really dont think its related.So is it worse with the ac on?
Yes, it is worse with ac on.
Sounds like it could be the ignition system have you checked the plugs and wires?
I looked under the hood and did not see any sparks jumping. Any other easy way to check?
