Cooling system is plugged somewhere.. have it flushed out and see what happens again. If the same results happen, a head gasket can be the problem or clogged radiator

Try pulling the engine coolant temp sensor, They often crack not sure why but the ceramic tip cracks makes the car hard to start, or won't start, the car's idle may race while shifting gears, and often smokes. The sensor is on the right side of the engine when looking at it on the head. Easy to change and get too

For old models, Saturn/GM also used the same material fiberglass gasket in your model, you almost certainly have a leak from a crumpled, sucked-in gasket as I suffered (and many others). I would say going to Saturn dealership to make repairs is probably not good idea if they are going to put in the same GM intake gasket part. Maybe possible to specify Felpro gasket with whatever shop you go to if you don't do the repair yourself. I would not go too long with your car in that condition as there is localized leaning at your cyl-3, that could cause a burnt exhaust valve there.

The exhaust is extra hot venting out that cylinder. P0303 is misfire at cyl-3. Mine was P0301 (cyl-1). You may get P0507 once in a while when PCM fails to control the fast idle caused by the leak under certain conditions. Most of the time, it is very slow idle caused by 3 cylinders running. You run smoother in cold idle because the IAC opens up to increase idle and end up lowering the manifold vacuum, so the reduced vacuum causes less leaking at the failing intake manifold gasket.

I'd say try cleaning everything with your ignition before replacement; Idle problems could be caused by engine coolant sensor (ECTS). Are you sure it was changed? Did they put on a new wire connector along with it?

Hope helps.

2002 Chevy Impala wont start after letting sit after it warms up


Almost sound's like vapor lock , the fuel boils in the fuel injector rail , turns to vapor ! That was a common problem with carburetors , letting the vehicle hot soak after shutting down the vehicle an letting it sit for 10- 15 mins. The fuel would boil away ! Are the cooling fans working ? After turning off a hot engine the cooling fans can run on without the key being on , do you hear fans run ? What engine does your impala have ? 3.4 or 3.8 L . Has the check engine light come on ? The fuel pressure regulator could be leaking fuel . Pull the vacuum hose off the regulator after shut off the vehicle , is there fuel coming out of the regulator ? Dribbling out the end of the hose ? This could be bleeding the fuel from the fuel rail ! Good luck , hope i've given you something's to check that you haven't already .

I dont hear the buzz from my fuel pump last night my gas light came on. shut the car off for about 20 min and now will not start. put gas in it ,felt like it was going to start but never did. normaly i...


If you hear any noises from a fuel pump that's probably not a good sign, but I'd suggest checking your starter if the car wont turn over. If you think fuel is the problem check for any leaks that are visible, it could be a vacuum leak but I doubt that because that wouldn't prevent the car from starting.

Water boiling back in the resevoir after running 10 min thermostat is new and so are hoses. then car starts to run bad and shuts off.


Sounds like a plugged radiator or bad water pump, assuming the thermostat was put in correctly. If you hear a loud whining noise from the water pump when running, that's probably the problem, and it's more common than bad radiators.

Intermittent no start, very strange, very confusing


Sounds like fuel pump going out. I was told by a friend that the pump can get stuck and that by knocking on the fuel tank or by attempting to start that it can kick the pump out of the bad spot and it will start. But it is a sign that it needs to be replaced.
