Hi guys, My friend just gave me 96 impala SS for my birthday No pics yet. What a awesome friend huh?? But anyways its sitting in his backyard rite now and i need to replace/fix on of the rear brake lines and also the cooling fan is not coming on so i have to see whats causing that not to come on.. Its been sitting for about a year now and im looking to bring it back to life and make it my everyday driver. Any suggestions of what needs to be done since its been sitting and the fan is not coming on.. maybe its common thing thats an easy fix.. THANKS

Unplug the coolant temperature sensor on the water pump. With the car running both fans should come on after a few seconds. If they don't you're looking at a motor/relay/wiring problem.

The rear brake line is not easy to replace, the rear fitting is in a tight spot. I usually cut, flare, an put a union under the driver's door and replace the line from there back.

Welcome, first thing I would personally do is change the oil and filter if possible, you can also unplug the maf while it's running to see if the fans will turn on. X2 on the rear brake lines they are hard to get at, Also get some fresh fuel and maybe run some lucas fuel treatment in the gas aswell, fuel pumps are a real pain to replace on the B bodys too so anything to keep it working right.
