Well donna that depends on how the engine is taken care of. if you change engine oil and filters every 3000 miles and do regular tune ups your vehicle can potentially have no major engine componant failure for at least 150,000-200,000 miles. you have most likely either a 3.4 or a 3.8 V6 engine and for the most part those GM engines are very durable. Timing chain and gear issues are something no on can really predict but the better you take care of the vehicle the less likely you are to have to repair it. your vehicle is 12 years old and at an average of 15,000 -20,000 miles a year your vehicle is already at the threshold of it's max potential. so it could fail tommorow or never. the only way to determine the true condition of the componant is to look at it and this requires some work. hope this gives you some idea. please rate this.. thanks

I have a 96 monte Carlo 3100 I was wondering what year motors interchanged with that like what years do the range in that go

96 to 99. 3.1 and 3.4 engines work. You can go higher on years, but will have to change brackets and sensors. Up to 03 I believe. Main thing you need to watch for is the crank sensor.

You don't have to pull it to replace the TCC. Remove the pan and you can access the TCC solenoid. 40b12bb6-08f8-4f1c-b959-9bfe6f7b08fb.gif

Timing belt broke on our 95 z34 monte carlo. Is this an intreference motor? And do i have to replace the water pump, or can i get to it w/o going through the timing belt again?

If the car is a 95 it should be a freewheel non interference. if it's a late 95 or 96 then it is an interference. You will need to replace guide pullys and the tensoner. I will worn you it's a real pain to do. no room for your hands
