Hello, I'm a new Impala owner from Pocatello Idaho. Just found this forum, and am excited to be a part of it! I'm sure it won't be long before I start asking for help on this and that.

Welcome to the site from another out west Owner.
I live in Northern Utah but travel regularly thru Pocetello on the way to Idaho Falls.

You will find the forum useful in finding answers to well known issues with the Impala, tips on various subjects from audio to general fix it stuff.

You will find on the site, some former owners that hang out to give current owners a bad time. If you don't get offended easily you'll be fine.

2002 Chevrolet Impala


PostPosted: Tue Aug 28, 2012 11:01 am    Post subject:   Reply with quote

Thanks for the warm welcome! I realized that I forgot to mention anything about my car. It's a 2002 base model with the 3.4 engine. Just recently purchased it, and whoever had it previously took very good care of it. It has 108000 miles and rides like a dream. Previous owner replaced the stock wheels with American Racing wheels, same 16 inch size, but they look nice. More than that, I'm happy they're not stock so I don't have to worry about warping over the years. They also replaced the air filter with a K&N, just the drop in filter, not a CAI. Battery is a Duralast Gold 800 CCA, and the spark plug wires look aftermarket. They're thick red wires.

Prior to this, I've been driving a 1995 Dodge Intrepid. It was a good car, but old and worn out. The repairs would be too costly all things considered. Still drives, so the wife's keeping that until it dies. My experiences with the intrepid did teach me a thing or two about the importance of taking care of a car, as well as how to perform some maintenance and repairs. Good to be here in the company of the experts though.

You're concerned about the factory rims warping? I've never even heard of that, unless you meant brake rotors.

I think PRJ brand wires are the red aftermarkets for our cars. In general, Impala ignition parts work better than aftermarket stuff, especially plugs and wires.

Be cautious if you ever service your K&N filter... overoiling will ruin the engine's sensors, which can get expensive fairly quickly. I, too, have a K&N filter in my car but if it ever needed replacement, I would opt for a dry-flow style as opposed to oiled. Both are serviceable parts, but eliminating the oiling leaves one less thing to go wrong when working on the car.

There are a lot of red plug wires on the market. They could just be MSDs. Although he'd be a lucky duck if they were PRJs. Very Happy
