Question about 1996 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

1 Answer

1996 monte carlo jerks when in gear but not in neutral

My car just started jerking when I come to a complete stop at an idle, fine when I hit the gas and start going. I put it in neutral and it stops, so when I come to a stop I have to put in neutral or it will **** like it wants to take off or stall out like it's not getting any gas or something. What could this be? Cindy

Have your modulator valve checked, or there could be a vacuum leak somewhere.

Testimonial: "thanks for your advice, Robert Rankin, I thought it sounded like a vacuum leak too..........the problem ended up being a worn out rubber grommet thingy on the end of a hose, so replaced it and runs like a top now"

SOURCE: car jerks while sitting idle at stop light

Soujnds like your throttle positioning sensor is going bad. This is the sort of thing that happens before they go completely out.

SOURCE: 2000 monte carlo ss 3800

3800's are really good motors, but that's a sign of fuel injector problems. I've seen this all to many times. Run some injector cleaner through it and see if cleans up.

One question however, does it stall out and have a problem restarting? Black smoke out of the exhaust? This is sign of an EGR valve problem that may be fixable simply with a nice cleaning.

I'd try the injector cleaner first, and if it continues, go onto the EGR valve. If this shows no problem, it may be a good time to take the car to a mechanic and have the injectors tested. They may be failing but not giving out a fault indicator.

Neutral safety switch in a 1999 monte carlo


Nope. The neutral switch has 2 functions. It prevents the engine from starting in any other gear but park and neutral. It also switches on the back up lights when in reverse. You have electrical problems located elsewhere.

Hi, 1997 monte carlo that idles, but cuts out when put in gear, or at times while driving. 3.1 engine. 184,000 mi.


I don't have an answer for you, but I do have a similar or maybe even the same issue with mine. It usually starts up fine, and idles and runs fine when first started, however a few blocks or a few miles down the road it starts to cut out on me, sometimes dying completely... throwing it into neutral and pumping the gas usually will keep it running. This has gone on for a couple of months. When it does die, It normally will restart after sitting for a few minutes. Then a couple of weeks ago it died on me (normally this happens when slowing down and coming to a stop,) and would not restart even after a 1/2 hr, I had to have it towed. I periodically attempted to start it for over a week, it would turn over, but nothing more...then someone suggested that I disconnect the auto start box...It started right up. However, it still continues to cut out when slowing or stopping unless thrown into neutral and pumping the gas. It seems to run better on the open highway, than it does in town with all the slower speed and stop n go. I bought this car used about 6 mos. ago, and considering it's age and the 135K miles on it, I don't want to put any more money into it. I just read there is a recall on this vehicle for the fuel pump and additionally the fuel assembly, I'm not sure if this would be the answer to the whole problem or not.

My monte carlo would hit 2nd gear and bog down and not shift properly until it got to the last gear. I had the catalytic converter replaced and that fixed that problem. (It also created another, but not near as bad)
