Question about 2002 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

1 Answer

2002 chevrolet monte carlo

It has a 3.8 v6. when I crank it to start, it starts then dies. I start it again and it stays running fine. I turned a corner today and it completely died on my. Started back up fine. when sitting in park sometimes the rpms are moving around a bit. It has also stalled sitting in traffic. Ive replaced the spark plugs, wires and fuel filter and its still doing the same thing. My wife said when she started it one day last week that smoke came out from under the hood, but drove it fine with no more smoke after starting ! Can you give me any advice on what this could be. The catalatic converter was replaced 2 years ago, could it be that again ? A sensor ? Hopefully something simple? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Nate

My car was doing the same thing. It would stall out while idling or even turning a corner. I ended up replacing a few sensors but the problem was the fuel injector pressure regulator. The check engine light never came on. It was leaking fuel through the vacuum side of the diaphragm. Disconnect the vacuum hose from the pressure regulator and if there are any traces of gasoline it needs to be replaced.

My 2001 Monte Carlo ss won't stay running


I would need more information to give you a good answer. I need to know how long will it stay running a few seconds an hour what is it. I had a 2000 blazer that would start fine everyday and i would 10 minutes and it died sometimes i drove an hour and it died. I parked it and everytime i started it would run about 10-15 minutes and die. after it would die i would check fuel pressure which was good and spark. Well turns out there's no spark so i changed coil ,plugs, wires, rotor. I finally changed the crankshaft positioning sensor and that tuned out to be the problem so good luck.

While driving my car lost power and then died. wont re-start


Hey first thing you want to do is make sure its getting fuel .. Try shooting a little gas into the air cleaner and crank it and see if it starts .. if it does your fuel pump might be the problem .. or use a little either instead of gas either will let you know if its a fuel problem .. sounds like to me that might be what it is. holler if you need more and thanks Jerry
