History
This vehicle has had a rough life. Started out as a rental car, and ended that stint when someone decided to crash it with 3000 miles on the clock. Another owner had it for 2 years or so, and when I purchased it in May of 2015 it had 174xx on the clock.
Due to its front end collision, it had an aftermarket A/C condenser, radiator, and fan assembly put in. Since I've had it, I've had to replace one fan, the radiator, and A/C condenser. The fan needed to be replaced because one of the mounts wasn't in correctly and it was hitting the shroud upon the fan starting up. The radiator was leaking where the upper radiator hose connects, replacing the hose didn't help, and cracks formed in the neck to the rad so it had to be replaced. Since the condenser, rad, and fan assembly were all replaced as one, the shop that repaired it did not put in OEM specification parts. So the replacement radiator I bought would not allow the A/C condenser to mount up, so I had to replace that as well. Additionally, 3 of the 4 mounting points worked to mount the fan assembly onto the radiator, so I used a metal ziptie on the 4th and called it a day. If I'm questioned on how this repair was done I can always create a thread outlining the steps. Unfortunately, the Impala overheated briefly before the radiator shipped in, but luckily this led to no noticeable damage or drivability issues. Now also has OE spec fan assembly so all of the mounting points line up.
Had to replace the purge solenoid valve under the hood.
3 of the 4 hub assemblies are now Moog units.
