2002 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Recalls

Engine Oil Leaks Onto Exhaust Manifold

Engine oil can leak onto the exhaust manifold, causing a fire hazard. This concern was addressed in previous recall notifications, but improvements to the repair have been made. Dealers will make improved repairs free of charge to resolve the concern.

Ignition Lock Cylinder Concern

Excess weight on the key ring can cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position without warning, turning off the engine. This defect can also affect the safe operation of the airbag system. Until this recall is performed, customers should remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the ignition key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be removed from the key ring. Dealers will provide two replacement key rings and key cover on all ignition keys to correct this concern.

I own one it now has over a 150k miles on it and the ac compressor went out. But that is my fault for running the ac while pushing it past 140 mph. She still runs like a champ not the fastest nor the quickiest but still fun to drive.
So I never liked Chevys. Then I fell in love with this 2002 Monte Carlo, which drove like a dream and still does. It's not the hottest car, but it's sporty and gets through snow alright. I have the SS 3.8L. But...the first problem I had was that all the lights in the dash would flash randomly, like they do when you turn it on. I was told the instrument clusters on these go out a lot, and that's...
