There is a very nice Youtube video that covers this exact repair put out by the channel South Main Auto. The video I believe was put out approximately in the last month. It also covers the faulty backup camera which apparently fails due to corrosion and age.

If your vehicle is equipped with automatic climate control, this should help.

Recirculation Operation
The HVAC control module controls the air intake through the recirculation actuator. The recirculation switch closes the recirculation door in order to circulate the air within the vehicle. The outside air switch opens the recirculation door in order to route outside air into the vehicle. Regardless of the blower motor switch position, recirculation is available only in the panel and bi-level mode switch positions. Including the OFF position. The mode switch must be placed in either the panel or bi-level position before the blower motor switch is placed in the OFF position. In order to reduce windshield fogging, outside air is circulated when the mode switch is in the defrost or defog positions. If the recirculation switch is pressed into the ON position when the mode switch is in an unavailable mode position, then the recirculation switch LED will flash 3 times. If the HVAC control module detects a fault with the recirc door the HVAC control module will try to drive the actuator for a predetermined amount of time, to outside air, which is the defaulted position for the recirculation actuator

sorry but impala ball joints are not pressed in they are secured by rivets

Sounds like a failed blower motor resistor, located on the side of the motor housing.
You will find the blower motor on the passenger side footwell of the car. Access by either under the glovebox compartment, or else by removing the glovebox completely.
I will attach an image, but they vary in what they look like .

That or else you have a failed actuator or cable mount for changing the directional flow of air in the system. This will be determined whether its a manual turn knob on the climate control unit or else an electronic system. If electronic , be sure that the flap control actuator is working and moving the flaps on the heater manifold correctly .

As far as the cobalt, check tac/throttle actuator control. Below is circuit description for p1682.
The other codes was for knock sensor.

put park brake on, turn ignition key to on position (no start) turn parklights off and on 4 times quickly (horn should sound twice). If you have or can get a TPMS activation reset tool great. Starting at drivers front, then passenger front, then passenger rear, then drivers rear. if you do not have a reset tool then you can try following method. Take valve caps off of all tires, start at drivers front tire (front left) let out 2 to 3 psi of air, about 5 seconds (TPS will detect this) wait about 10 to 15 seconds for horn to sound proceed to passenger front (front right) and repeat process, proceed to passenger rear and repeat process, proceed to drivers rear and repeat process. If horn does not sound than you will have to turn ignition key off and start over. You may have to re-inflate tires, it took me 2 days of @#$&^# around to get this method to work first time. God help you if a sensor is bad or missing.

What kind of problem you have?

Chevrolet... | Answered on Apr 14, 2019

Check to see if current is at the clutch . If so then tap on the clutch pushing it into the hub. If it engages then the air gap is too wide.

First have a/c gauges put on the system to see what the pressure is. Too low of pressure will keep the compressor from engaging. If there is enough pressure then check to see if the clutch is receiving voltage. If so then it may have a bad clutch coil. If not check the a/c fuse and relay.

Trust me on this one: The only thing to do in a situation like this is Hook it Up to a Quality OVD2 Diagnostic Scanner, if you don't its just a guessing game as many things can cause this. Call a friend or family member who has a scanner and have it checked, or go to a local parr's store and pick up an inexpensive obd2 scanner- they plug into the diagnostic port under the dash on the driver side, this will tell you the source of the problem or at least point you in the right direction!

The fact that that you haven't lost coolant and your reservoir is full still is a good sign. Try these 2 things:

1.) Check the oil and see if it looks "milky" or a strange color that's not the typical color of engine oil. If it looks ok at first glance, Look carefully at the dipstick and see if the oil level appears to be over filled- you'll know because the dipstick will be showing that it's at a level above full. This indicates that water/coolant has gotten into your oil and you likely have a blown intake gasket, this is common on GM Trucks/SUVs with the 4.8L/5.3L/6.0L V8.

2.) When the engine is cold and hasn't been running for a while, pop the hood and then start it up, quickly look under the hood for any leaks- especially around the water pump S it may be the issue(and an easy fix), or perhaps a radiator/heater hose is busted/leaking(also an easy fix). Just look for any leaks, if you have a friend or family member around get them to help you look for leaks, use a bright flashlight(even if it's daytime) so you don't miss a small leak as they're not always as obvious to see as you'd think. IT's OK TO LET IT RUN FOR A FEW MINUTEA BUT ONLY 2-3 MINUTES AT MOST AS ANY MORE TIME WILL CAUSE THE ENGINE TO OVERHEAT AND THAT'LL MAKE MATTERS WORSE AND YOU COULD END UP WITH A HUGE REPAIR BILL FOR MAJOR ENGIE ISSUE(S) INSTEAD- 2-3 MINUTES IS OK BUT THE SHORTER THE BETTER, SO IF YOU SEE A LEAK FIND ITS SOURCE AND CUT THE ENGINE OFF IMMEDIATELY- DON'T LET IT RUN ANY LONGER FHAN ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY!

I just fixed this issue on a Tahoe like yours and it was the water pump, the last one I fixed was an intake gasket, more on all of this below.

Regarding the Gauge Issue: it sounds like your Temperature Sending Unit is Bad which is no big deal and not expensive- it simply communicates with your gauge to display the engine temperature.

The overheating could be a number of things but most likely is a blown intake gasket as the 4.8L/5.3L/6.0L V8 Engines In 1999-Up Full Size GM Trucks & SUV's are known for having this issue. I just fixed a friend's Tahoe with this issue, I've done it many times on these GM Vehicles- I just bought a Tahoe with the same issue.

Worst Case Scenario is a Head Gasket Blown(or both are) and your cylinder heads could be warped or cracked as we, but it's usually not so serious, especially if you didn't drive it or let it run very long at all after noticing the overheating issue.

Any good mechanic/technician can diagnose this easily by doing a few common tests like a compression test and a leak-down test of your cooling system, etc.

Don't let that information alarm you, it may not be a big deal at all and a simple fix like a bad water pump, replacing the temperature sending unit, intake gasket, or all of the above which isn't expensive or hard to do at home with some mechanical ability and hand tools, but don't attempt it if you don't have any experience doing things like this- if you have any mechanical experience and can follow instructions then your Tahoe and all vehicles with the 4.8/5.3/6.0 are way easier than most to do the various repairs I've mentioned above to!
