I have an Impala 2001 which gives me the follwoing problem
First it gave me a message that my oil level is low hen it was not rue and stays on the whole time
now instead when i start the car there is a major squeek noise comming from the fan and the temperature gage does not move at all. It seem to happen when it is cold after a few minutes the noise stops but the temperature gage does not move.
Any suggestins ?

Go to an auto store and get a good set of gauges. That is the only way you know what is really happing. They look nice, they are not that expensive, most importantly they may save you from blowing your engine.

Sounds like you may have a loose fan belt or a water pump that is getting ready to quit. However, it wouldn't account for the guage unless somehow you accidentally pulled the wire off the temperature sending unit. Any coolant problem generally results in overheating unless the thermostat is stuck in the open position. But even so, the temperature would eventually come up somewhat. I'd check the sending unit first to make sure its operational, then check belts and thermostat (you can get a defective brand new thermostat) and from there the water pump. Usually if the water pump fails you will see coolant leaking from the weep hole on the bottom of the water pump shaft.
Let us know how you make out and we will go from there until we get you straightened out!
