2001 Chevy Impala sputters when starting, idle and acceleration

Asked by Feb 13, 2015 at 10:24 PM about the 2001 Chevrolet Impala Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I put it into a gear and accelerate and it dies. I also hear a loud hissing noise coming
from behind headlight.  I replaced 3 of the 6 plugs and wires. Trying to get the back 3. So
hard to get to.

Sounds like you have a vac leak in there. Search out that hissing noise.

Btw. You should be able to roll that engine forward to get to that back end. Google it. Not that hard to do.
