Question about 1995 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

1 Answer

Chevy monte carlo won't start????

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?

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.

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.

The battery died on my 2003 Chevy Monte Carlo and after the first time I jumped it and drove it around a little to try and charge the battery, the Security light came on. After I parked it and turned it...

Im pretty knowledgable in the whole SECURITY light issue... I dont think this could cause the door lock to not work correctly, but anything is possible. Newer cars are wound up pretty tight. Here is a link to help understand how the security works.

I'd go ahead and do a "security relearn" on you car. It might help if that is what caused the door issue.
Turn the key forward 2 clicks till right before it would normally start, leave like that for 10 minutes. ( no less ) Turn back your key to regular position and check the door lock. May have to do this process 3x

Drove my 01 monre carlo 30 miles to work, ran fine an hour later went to grab a coffee, the car backed out about 5 feet and stalled as if i was out of gas, sounds dry and refuses to start, or turn over but...

Have also had this problen, it's the fuel pump (i swear) very easy acess behind fold down seats under split in carpet it took about 1hr to complete. don't use the less expensive pump, get the Delphi @ about 300.00 from napa.

Wont keep idle, car stalls out

I had this same problem on my 2005 monte carlo, took mechanic a while to figure out it was the idle air control valve. They also replace the idle air control motor.

PLEASE HELP!! '95' chevy monte carlo z34 3.4L will not start back up.

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
