Question about 1995 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

1 Answer

Was driving on the interstate and it just shut down.

Didn't overheat. It did smoke but I couldn't tell what it smelled like. There was a little bit of oil under the car when it was being towed. I checked the oil afterwards and it was full with no mix of antifreeze in it. also the antifreeze has no oil in it. If the engine blew, would it still show full oil?
Now it won't even crank over.

The dip stick only checks the oil in the oil pan. If the oil pump stopped working it would leave the oil in the pan and not send it to all the pieces that need it in the engine itself. A piston or rod or something could have siezed and it would still show full oil. If there was oil under the car and you know it came from your car, find where the oil is comeing from and we can try to narrow down the problem.

Smoking from under hood


A leak of some fluid, probably oil, dripping onto the exhaust. This smells terrible, and it only needs a drop or two.

My pt jut started smoking out of exhaust. I drive it about 20 miles a day city. I am single mom so deliver the news gently lol


Might be a "blown head gasket".
If you wish, try to "smell" the smoke.
If it is "sweet" it might be antifreeze.
A way to tell is by removing your radiator cap when the engine is cold and see if the smell and taste is the same.
We're talking about a tiny bit, now, to taste.
A "compression test" will tell also you.
Blown head gaskets are $$$$$$. :-( Sorry
Be blessed.

Replace your wires and plugs.The bit of smoke coming out is telling you that it is firing but only occasionally.First replace plugs because they are cheaper.

White smoke from exhaust


Hello;
The white smoke is from coolant entering the combustion chamber(s). Coolant can enter through the water passages sealed bu the head gasket. You have probably blown a head gasket. You should check your coolant level. You may have acracked head if you continue to drive it and overheat. The temp gauge only reads when exposed to coolant, not air. Take out thhe spark plugs and look them over. A white glossy apperance will indicate water in the combustion chamber. You may need to surface the head once you have it removed so that it is flat. Hope this helps.
Thanks;

Lack of power


is the trans fluid level ok? check the color of the fluid, should be a nice cherry red color, and notice the smell of the fluid. if it smells burnt, or like the smell of burned brakes. if you have the bad smell, the clutches are burning, time to rebuild.
