Hello from long time Chevy/GM guy

I have been an owner of a 2012 Impala for the last 1.5 years.
I have never liked FWD cars, but I test drove this little beast and when it spun the tires *all* the time when I nailed the gas I realized I had to own it.
I also know that with great power comes great responsibility.
Before I owned a '94 Caprice, unfortunately not with the 5.7 V8 but the smaller crappier 4.3 V8.
I loved the car but the engine was unfortunately garbage with that crummy water pump driven by the camshaft over the distributor design. It was made worse because the owner prior apparently used the egg sealant trick which I later found out caused my radiator to clog up.

Anyway.
This Impala has been quiet impressive actually.

Hi.
I tried posting to other parts of this forum and nothing seems to get posted.

I am having some problems with my car that I need advise on how to address.

Tell us what year car, sub-model (LS, LT, etc) and what engine you have, and we can tell you which sub-forum to post to.

A few of the sub-forums require admin approval to post to. Perhaps you tripped over one of them.

HTH.

Doug

[Edit] I'm getting database errors just trying to post this reply. That's more likely the problem you're having.

If your socket set is all the same brand, you might be a city slicker.
