So this past weekend I pulled the oil pan from my 2007 chevy impala and changed the gas get due to it leaking! What a job that was. Got everything back together an in place no more leak also change a motor mount on the bottom of the motor took the vibration I was having away. Started the car drove fine next day the engine lite comes on and stays on had it scanned and it's putting off 5 different codes my problem is I'm loss with these coded don't think I have 5 different problems I'm guessing there all being put off for the same reason but who knows the codes are P0030,P0036,P0053,P0054,P0443. Any ideas an thoughts would be greatly appreciated as I can not afford to take it to a shop at this time! Thanks for taking the time to read!

well, the first four codes are for your oxygen sensor heaters. check to make sure don't have a wire pinched or the fuse may be blown. check 'Emission 1' fuse 15A in the underhood fuse panel. If that fuse is not completing the circuit it will turn on all those codes. That fuse powers up both Oxygen sensor heaters and also the evap purge solenoid

the last code is for evap purge solenoid circuit.

what is the 8th digit in your vehicles vin code? that will tell me what engine the car has.
3.5 vin K
3.5 vin N
3.9 vin R
5.3 vin C

I have the 3.5 l in my impala I had already looked for any pinched wires none to be found knew nothing about the fuse! Checked the fuse an indeed it was bad would have never guessed a fuse could trigger the check engine lite to come on! I am greatly appreciative for your advise Carriedi thank you may God bless! Thank a whole lot save me at least 100$ to get it diagnosed!

First time I've done this. It told me to post under someone else's topic.I recently purchased this car and I had this code come up. I had a lifter problem and the guy replaced 4. He puts the engine back to together and it still has that code. I have poor engine performance at times when accelerating. You notice it when you mash gas hard it bogs down or when car his 40mph it slows a bit. Starts and runs fine. Just issues list. Mechanic seems to believe it's the camshaft. Any ides or experience with this? Any help greatly appreciated.

p0016 is the code for cam sensor to crank sensor correlation

clean good oil pressure is essential for the cam actuator to react normally. Sludge build up can affect the operation of the cam actuator.

Using a scanner, look at the cam and a crank sensor data.

how does the engine run? does it run smoothly? No shaking, no misfires, etc.?

It was running it's best before I put 4 lifters into it. They were all pretty ruff and worn dow. The mechanic said he didn't check the other ones and that he probably should have. Now it has a pretty bad skip or misfire but there is no misfire detected in the computer scanner. IT'S drivable but sounds horrible and burns quite a bit of gas. Engine oil is clean. Changed recently.
