SOURCE: 2001 chevy impala has a P0420 code and a check

A code P0420 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:

An oxygen sensor is not reading (functioning) properly
The engine coolant temperature sensor is not working properly
Damaged or leaking exhaust manifold / catalytic converter / exhaust pipe
Retarded spark timing

SOURCE: check engine light on

You cannot reset the check engine light any other way than using a scan tool. Some auto parts stores will scan the vehicle for free then at least you will know the area of the fault.

SOURCE: 2001 Impala Cooling Fan Not coming on ever and car

Cooling fan relay switch (in the fuse box uner the hood). Look for othger relays in there that are the same type number (they are all marked). If you find one that is the same as the cooling fan relay, then swap the two relays and check. (Turn on car and turn on A/C ... fan will start ... or not).

Fan motor could be bad (most likely).
If you remove it yourself, don't scrapr the radiator fins with the fan blades.

Hope this helps!

Have a 2001 chevy impala runs great on acceleration but rough on idle engine light is on gas milage is down replaced plugs and wires wondering if i have an issue with the oxygen sensor


your check engine light will give you information that will help solve the problem-get the computer scanned, go to a retail auto parts store, they all do it for nothing. Write down the actual codes, and come back here with the codes, you will get the help you need.

First....you will have to check the code(s) stored in the computer.
The check engine light is telling you....you have a problem and fixing that problem may help with your fuel mileage.
When the check engine light is on....you loose 20% gas mileage and have 20% higher emissions.

Wow, I just went through the same problem and guess what it was a clogged converter and a bad oxyegen sensor. The garaged fixed it up for me by putting an eco converter on it and a new O2 sensor. I have a 2003 Chevy Impala,V6 3.8 engine. Good Luck!!!!
