Question about 1985 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

1 Answer

1995 chevy monte carlo z34 3.4L Turned off while driving

My car started just fine and I drove 25miles then I turned the car off for about 2 hours. I got back in the car and it started up fine again and I drove about 1 mile then it just turned off and it would not start back up at all. **I thought I ran out of gas but that was not the problem. The car is cranking but just won't start up.

1.Battery is charged (radio and everything electric works)
2.Car has quarter tank of gas
3.Once key is turned to ON position you can hear the fuel pump kick on

What else could be the problem?

SOURCE: Chevy monte carlo won't start????

sounds to me like your coil packed it in or your timing belt ( chain ) has jumped a tooth. If you have access to a scanner run a diagnostic check on your car to see if it comes up with any trouble codes.

SOURCE: How do I get a set of replacement keys for a 1995

If you do not have the original key, you can take the vin number and proof of ownership and the dealer should be able to help you. If not you will have to have it towed to a chevy dealer. The chips can be read, but if you do not have the chip they they have to determine what chip the car us using.

Hope this helps.

Take it back to where you got it and make them refund your purchase price. If they refuse and you finianced it go to them, There a law called "The Lemon Law" that makes it unlawful to sell something like that. Sounds like you sure bought one. Don't do anything to it just get hold of the place where you bought it and tell them to come get their junk out of your yard! dhgill1949

Hi anthony,

you said you had gas, exactly how much, the reason I ask this question is in '95 GM had major issues with fuel pumps. The fuel pumps of that year depended on the tank always being at least 1/4 full. The uses the fuel to cool itself if you run the car lower on gas than this you will experience exactly what your experiencing
