Hi im new to the fourm n just purchased a 1996 impala ss. The car is good as a whole but there are things that need to b done. Well my question is I have notice alot of water dripping from the tailpipe I read its condensation but how much is to much at idle n my temp guage will go up while sitting or in stop and go traffic but when I turn the a/c on it stays down at a normal spot on the temperature guage.if you have any suggestions on where to start I will much appreciate it I plan on keeping this piece of history for a long time.
The electric fans run constantly when the AC is turned on. Other times the fans kick on at a set temp. So the temp goes up and down and the fans kick on and off. Water out the tailpipes is normal. Some mufflers have a hole for drainage, some dont, so the water goes out the tailpipe.
Thanks for the info and the fan on the left facing the front of the car only comes on when the temp gets to 220 so I dont know if that fan is suppose to run constantly or just do the on and off thing.is there a way to lower the 220 temperature setting
It's normal. As you have found out, if you want the fans to come on earlier, simply put the AC to the MAX setting. You can also reprogram the PCM to have lower fan on threshold temps. For more help with your 90s SS, head over to www.impalassforums.com and we'll have lots more info for you.
