There's air in the lines from the sounds of it, likely from them not correctly bleeding the system. An air bubble in the system will compress before the rest of the fluid in the lines, thus not actuating the brake callipers. If you don't have the tools to bleed your brakes at home, you should take it back to the workshop and get them to asap.

You may want to jack it up and check the brakes and look to see if the fluid is coming from the brakes. It would be on the tire or the wheel on the inside. Look it over and try to pinpoint the origin of the fluid leak first. While it is up, check for any looseness by moving the tire left - right and up-down. You could have a bad caliper, bad wheel bearing ...

On that year Impala the lower stop lights pull power from the hazard switch and from there to the multi-function switch. You'll need to pull steering column covers and check for power out of the multi-function switch on the yellow and dark green wires. If you don't have power on either wire, check the turn signal fuse. If the fuse is OK check for power from ...

went back and they bled the brakes again after telling me they were good twice and now they work like they did before the master cylinder went bad. Problem solved.

OK so this is pretty specific and I had to look through 4 pages of u-joints after narrowing down by engine/transmission and body style. Yet there were even more options. I'm making assumptions at this point, as quadrasteer isn't that common and since you said you have a short bed, you should have a 1 piece aluminum drive shaft. This would probably be easier ...

P0420 is probably the most common code seen. It refers to "Catalytic Converter Efficiency" Basically, it Engine Control Module (ECU) monitors the chemical constituents of the exhaust, both before and after the catalytic converter. The Catalyst is really a small furnace that reburns the exhaust and adds more oxygen where necessary, to eliminate harmful ...

I found the problem. Apparently it was a long piece of paper carried into fan assembly by a mouse. After running for a while paper must be choking the fan and thus stopping the air flow. Thanks everybody.

If you have a blown headgasket, it won't last long - a few miles at most. Keep going too long as the engine will overheat and sieze up, and then you'll need a new engine. I'd suggest you get a few more quotes - You don't state where you are in the world, but the gaskets themselves are cheap, and it shouldn't need much more than half a day's labour - around ...

It can be many things I mean, way many things, as SteveRacer has already cited. The most common (but not unique) is a failing catalytic converter. Please note that often a bad catalytic converter usually is a symptom of a problem, not a cause. If you replace it without solving the source problem, it will fail again in very short time. If this is the case ...

I would try to lubricate the door lock mechanism and linkages. You probably have to remove the inner door panel to get to it all. Also, lube the actual lock with tri flow or a dry ptfe type lube.

Perhaps the switches in your "turn signal stalk" (the lever on the side of the steering wheel you describe with the "blinker stick" problem) are damaged. This may cause all sorts of lights on/off issues. The Body Control Module "BCM" on GM cars like your Malibu control every single thing from security, radio codes, cluster (gauges), and ashtray contents. ...
