How to remove air pockets in the cooling system.
When you have air in your cooling system, check for leaking gaskets. Most of the time the head gasket is leaking. and it is just a matter of time the whole gasket blows out. It will cost you because the engine needs revision, once the head gasket blows. Don't drive till a tech has checked your engine.

My 2004 chevy impala dash lights wont come on
It is possible that it could be the key switch. Some connections or wiring might be lose in that area. Other than that it could be the wiring for the dashboard that could be loose. Loose wiring or loose ground may also cause this making it look like as if the power supplied by the battery is not enough. I would also check the dimming switch. It may also be loose or is going bad.

2010 Chevy impala airbag light on, is it a costly problem?
Only if you go to the dealership. I suggest if you own this car and plan on keeping it for a bit get your self Chilton Repair manual and Haynes repair manual. You can at least be familiar with what and how somethings repaired so you could avoid a costly repair. If a mechanic sense you dont know much about cars watch out. These manual have wiring schematics and diagrams indicating where fuses and relas are located. The manuals are vehicle specific so youd ask for Chevy 2010 Chevrolet Impala. Having some knowledge is better than none and no it's not an expensive repair if you are doing it yourself.

Is the 04 Impala 3.8 V6 an interference engine?
this is a VERY good engine to own!!! you shouldnt have to replace te water pump unless it goes out,and the timing belt ,on ANY engine ,should be replaced at factory recommended intervals. the mileage on this car is below average. I love this engine...good power,reliable ,easy to work on,and parts are relatively inexpensive.
