Looks dope! Nothing better than a tastefully modded Impala. Shame they are all FWD nowadays but what can you do...

Haha yeah, it was mid 40's out. We have such bipolar weather here. One day it's snow the next it's heavy rain then it's sunny and repeat. Oh and the car certainly isn't clean, it has some salt/dirt on it from the roads.

Thank you, how you see it is kinda how it's staying. Window tint and lowered a little and that's it for the outside... for now lol. Inside I have a few mods to do. I have a custom gauge pillar I purchased from Josh (07LazerBlueSS) that he had in Papa Ssmurf before he sold it. I'll be installing that to monitor transmission temperatures.

It'll probably be a little while before I post a update. Having some close friend issues.

But if it's alright with @RYD SLO I might make some Impala Forums/IOTM stickers to give out to the winners.

2009 Impala SS

Just purchased a pair of AeroForce gauges for my A-pillar. I've been holding off because I didn't want to spend $400 on two gauges.. but I had a $30 off coupon on eBay. Plus I sold some old games I had laying around. So I'm hoping they will arrive Saturday.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! Car seems to run fine still. Definitely needs some suspension work. Struts are shot and the power steering rack has seen better days. Im afraid to find out what this is.

Usually, the check engine light is caused by some minor, emissions-related issue - especially if the car is still running fine. Don't sweat it! Just get the code read at Autozone and go from there... Might be something as simple as a gas cap...

You know oddly enough I did get gas yesterday lol. Went got gas, drove for 15 minutes hung out with my ex.. yeah my ex at Dave and Busters. Went to leave and was driving home and it came on. The roads in Ohio are terrible, it's like playing frogger around potholes.

Well... I fixed it. I'm not sure how but I did lol. I looked over the engine and checked stuff like the gas cap. It was still on. Drove to autozone and he was searching around for the port. When my dad was messing with the heat in my car when I was at work apparently he just shoved the port up in the dash. So I pulled that out. Started it and was going to go back to autozone but now the check engine light is gone.... weird.

It should still have a stored code. If you go back to Autozone, they should be able to retrieve it. I doubt you have anything to worry about since the CEL went out, but it wouldn't hurt to know, just in case.

Very true, I'm curious at to what the issue was.

Did you happen to remove and re-install the gas cap? I'm wondering if it just wasn't making a good seal after you got gas and removing and re-installing it corrected the issue...

I did, the engine light was still on. Drove it to autozone and then back to my house, it was on. I shut it off. Messed with the port and was going to go back to autozone. Started it and it didn't come back on. Shut it off restarted it, still off. Drove it for 10 minutes and it never came on. So I'm not sure what that was about.
