Hello, I just bought a 2002 Monte Carlo SS with about 156,000 miles. It has a few problems like stalling that we are working on. But another issue it has is that the Service Traction System light comes on intermittently. I thought maybe it was because it was set as on and not off but rather it is on or off the warning light still comes on. Any ideas about what to do with this? Thank you in advance for your time.
of the vehicle all down the parking lot. I can't afford to put my car in shop just got back to work but want to know how difficult is it to replace the radiator, my dad does some mechanic work the motor mounts on this vehicle is different from the cars we use to work on, need advice on removing the old radiator
still have no dash lights no headlights just a check engine light on when turning key on.When tow truck dropped of car it then would crank but no start and no other signs of life.any suggestions . please and thxs
what could be the problem. could it be the battery or conection?
It started in May 2015 and did it off and on for 4 weeks and then stopped until September 18, 2015. I had work done on the car before each time.
Pulled up to gas station car wouldnt start? Finally started 15 mins later, replaced fuel pump last year
The system lights are on all of the time. The brake control module has been replaced and programmed. All wheel sensors are working properly. I have read this is an ongoing problem for this model car so I am looking for solutions that I can check for.
So my MC is a 3.4,I bought it a month ago. All the sudden it just decided to start dying on me. Im going 70 mph on the highway and it just shuts off triggering the battery light to pop up in my messenger window on the dash. After a few minutes of struggling with starting it again I just let it sit and than try again a few minutes later and it starts up but rough. The RPMs jump around when it hits 2-3RPM and I give it more gas and it seems to keep going for a bit. There is really no warning. No check engine light pops up so the guys at Oreillys and Auto ZOne were unable to diagnose any problems. I took it to a GM Dealership and they ran the security and computer on the car to no avail. On a hunch based on the fact that the vehicle has 117K miles on it and the fuel pump had never been changed I crossed my fingers and spent the 300 bucks for a new one. I installed it fingers still crossed, and died on the way home. Next I bought a fuel filter. I have yet to install it as my research via online has lead me to believe that the sensors could be the issue as far as the crankshaft is involved, or someone even suggested the MAF. I had auto zone check my battery and alternator to be sure they were working sharp and they are. I use premium fuel. I crank the gas cap till it clicks a few times. I have never ran it out of gas and there was only one previous owner who took extraordinary care of this car. I love my Monte Carlo and want to see it run well and give me a piece of mind. I have also checked the air cleaner not sure if that matters or not. With the check engine light not coming on Im left to playing the wonderful guessing game. I dont want to spend anymore money on this car if I don't have to.
PS previously to having this problem, I took my car into the dealership to have a FOB programmed to the car. The FOB was in the cup holder when I purchased it and assumed it was the original. It didnt work, I bought a new battery for it, it still didnt work, I looked up programming steps, guess what? It didnt work. Hence taking it to the dealer to have them deal with it. they had my car for 45 min or so and than told me that the FOB was not compatible with my car and therefore had to purchase one that was. It was more money than I could afford at the time and passed telling the guy I would come back for it when my finances allowed it. The next day, my car dies. At the time I assumed it was something to do with the pass lock system or security so I returned it to the dealer to see if they could fix it and they explained to me the two ARE not connected. sooo any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in Advance!
Engine cranks, I can hear the fuel pump cycle, the security light flashes on once but goes out, I've tried disconnecting the battery, checked fuses...I'm at a loss.
Replaced most sensors and spark plugs and wires but nothing helps what could be causing this
Passenger lays flat when I step on gas.
Sometimes it hardly moves and other times will go all the way to 140mph
Im leaking oil from a small circular spot which looks like it could be an o-ring sealant. It doesn't leak until i turn off my engine. Then it leaks for a little while. How do i know if its the o-ring seal or if its the intake manifold gasket if heard of?
Cars been having over heating problems found a broken black hard hose looks like it had a red o ring seal but can't tell where the other end goes to .anyone know what that hard plastic hose goes to
Hard plastic piece down below I was told the belt tightner snapped off I guess
front and back brakes have been replaced.
Drove from Michigan to Ohio not stopping. Next day went to store shopped and it wouldn't start. Left there over nite and started next morning
It runs rich if unplugged but it does run. Runs well in morning but won't if I have to shut it off. I have replaced ignition , and fuel pump. Had checked for vacuum leaks and it doesn't seem to be that. Any ideas? Thank you
