Question about 2006 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

1 Answer

I have recently purchased a 2006 monte Carlo with 55000 miles on it and noticed today that when the car is idling it only blows cold air out of the heater. While I'm driving it works fine. Does anyone know what the most logical cause of this is?

Most likely low coolant/antifreeze. Check the fluid level and make sure it's full. If it's full, it may be the water pump not functioning properly

put your foot on the brake before you try to take it out of park. if it is a console shifter there may be something you lift up or move with your finger before you can take it out of park

The ck engine light should not be ignored, what sensor was shown to be bad ? Have it scanned again and replace the sensor that is bad if it still runs rough you might want to consider a tune up. Plugs, wires, fuel and air filter's and clean the throttle body with some gumout. It could also be the IAC motor Idle Air Control. Good Luck

Better make sure the fan works. There is a switch on the radiator that turns the fan on when it gets to a certain temperature. It could be the fan or the switch. Your thermostat is not your cap, it's in a different location. (Usually at the engine end of the upper radiator hose) Get the leak check! A good garage can pressure test the system to see what leaks you might have.

Monte carlo blows cold air and overheats


It really runs hot within a minute of starting ?
An engine that runs hot in a few minutes is often having problems with the water pump or a blockage in the cooling system. The thermostat does not open until 195 degrees which takes 5 or 10 miles of driving.
During that time, the water pump should be circulating coolant in the block and the heater hoses.
A leaking head gasket should be putting extra pressure into the cooling system, and-or dumping coolant into the cylinders which would come out the exhaust pipe. But it should still take a few minutes for the engine to reach the boiling point of 240 degrees.

My 2006 Monte Carlo's low oil pressure turn engine off indicator comes on, on the dash. All apears normal. Happens only once and a while


mine's been doing this too. I pulled into a dealer when this happened and he was nice enough to check things out under hood a bit. Confirmed what I noticed...which was that there was no leaking oil and neither of us noticed any noises or unusual engine behavior. So he said he felt it is oil pressure sensor. Gonna check into one today.

Air conditioner blowing hot air on 2002 monte carlo and it has freon in it


car air conditioner blowing hot air is cause by either a leak or a clogged condenser, since it has a freon in it then it might be a case of clogged condenser but this is just a contributing factor, it is possible that the leak is small that you wont even notice that the freon is not enough for the a/c to blow cold air.
