Have your computer scanned at your local auto parts store and post the trouble code(s) here. Sounds like a bad IAC (Idle Air Control) valve. If your Impala has over 100,000 miles on it you're due for a tune up. A tune up on your car consists of new spark plugs and new spark plug wires. I'd recommend iridium spark plug so they'll last another 100,000 miles. HTH. -Jim
