2006 Chevrolet Monte Carlo ProblemsFailing Pressure Control Solenoid can cause Hard Shifting
There have been multiple reports of harsh or rough shifting. This can also be coupled with an inability to engage higher gears or reverse. First item to check is that the transmission fluid level is correct. Following that, the most common solution is the replacement of the transmission's pressure control solenoid.
The transmission pressure control solenoid may fail causing erratic shifting. Our technicians tell us that partial dis-assembly of the transmission is necessary to replace a failed pressure control solenoid.
The speedometer or other instrument panel gauge may begin to work erratically at times. Our technicians tell us that the instrument cluster must be sent to a repair facility to correct this fault.
2006 Chevrolet Monte Carlo QuestionsWhat used transmissions can I use to replace the one in my car now. (2 answers)
I have an 06 monte carlo with a 3900 and it will miss 2nd gear. When I first leave with it it will miss 2nd and free rev until I slow down enough to down shift back to first after doing this a couple times it will shift as it should until I let it sit and cool down.
I have a v8 SS, cylinder number six had low pressure and smoke was coming out of my tailpipe and running rough but the engine light on they deactivated my active fuel management and then I got my pressure back on that cylinder. They going to do a valve job and resurface the heads up.
I want a fair price.
2006 Chevrolet Monte Carlo RecallsIgnition 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 install two 13mm key rings and key insert into the vehicle's ignition keys to correct this concern.
