Question about 1999 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

1 Answer

1999 Monte Carlo

Just replaced the fuel pump, new muffler, and gas is leaking from the reserve. The original problem was stalling, did tune up and nothing changed. Replaced the fuel pump and took it out and the muffler heated up so bad burnt through the trunk. Replaced the muffler incase of it being a baffle(was in need of new anyway). Still trouble getting it started and leaking from the fuel reserve. PLEASE give me some ideas.. Thanks

Sounds like a fuel management problem. the catalytic converter is getting to hot due to tryin to burn off the excess fuel not burned. causing the muffler to overheat get it scaned at autozone for free. sounds like a o2 sensor runnin lean dumpin more fuel. or a bad mass airflow sensor good luck

I have the smell of gas inside my 2004 Monte Carlo, it started over a week ago, no sign of gas leak and gas mileage is still good. Anyone have any ideas?

I'd use a fuel pressure gage and check correct fuel pressure. Once correct pressure builds up, see if pressure holds for a bit with everything off? If pressure drops like rock, you have a fuel pressure leak. Another thought would be evap leak?
How long since a tune-up? Any applicable trouble codes?

I ran my 03 monte carlo out of gas put a gallon in to get me to the gas station where i filled it up, now the car sputters and dies out on me after a min or 2 jus did a tune up a week ago and changed fuel...

yes i had the same problem. you are gonna have to change your fuel pump,and fliter. and the reasoning why is becuz it has a senor in the pump and your car is picking up all the dirt thats been sitting in the bottom of the tank. and when you fill it up. its causing the car to stall out. Or it will start needing you to put gas to it when cranking. or you can jus turn the key and let the fuel go thru the lines. But thats what it seems like to me. Good luck!

99 monte carlo 3.1, starts and idles but stuters and almost stalls if gas is pressed. Suspect fuel prolem. In process of changing filter but of course this original filter was siezed on. Had to cut...

Injectors might be the problem,they may not be pulsing,or need cleaning.You can check the fuel pressure on the rail there is a screw on valve,it is a service port,if there is not one,check it at the fuel filter.

Stalling and brakes wont work properly on 1999 chevy monte carlo

Stalling, could be fuel filter, plugs, plug wires, fuel injectors. Brakes, could be air in lines, defective calipers and pads. Remove one wheel and check the thickness of the pad and look for any leaks. I you intend to replace the pads you will need certain tools, antinseizing compound, and high temp break grease.
