    The tensioner was in the wrong position so the serpentine belt wasn't tight enough to charge the system.

The fuel filter is located in the pressure line that runs from the fuel tank to the engine, near to the fuel tank.
Keep the engine off for few hours before replacing the filter, to get rid of some pressure in the lines.

'80 Monte Carlo, a good ride. A Chilton's book is a good investment. It will show you wiring and vacuum hoses and how to do the brakes, etc.

SOURCE: 2002 chevy monte carlo won't start

this vehicle is equipped with a factory anti theft system if when you try to start the engine and the anti theft light is on then the starter won't start even if your check engine light is not on you would have to scan the body module to pin point the problem to see if it's the anti theft system or the starter, go to a auto parts store like auto zone or pep boys or western auto these store offer free scanning to there customers. if this information has been helpful please let use know good luck

1998 Chevy Monte Carlo - Doesn't start. Replaced the alternator


start the car then remove the negative battery cable if the car still runs them your alternator is working properly and you need a battery. I have also gotten bad rebuilt alternators from on several occasions for this type of car and had to put on new AC delco ones but they are a little more expensive.

Yes, a car will keep running with the battery disconnected, although that is not a good idea with all the sensitive electronic circuits on cars today. You can fry something expensive quickly. It will keep running because all power to run everything is supplied by the alternator, not the battery.
Have the battery charged up again, and see what happens. I don't know why it went dead, unless you have a charging problem. Does the battery/alternator light go off after the car is started?

2002 Chevy monte Carlo. When I turn the heater on it makes a loud noise and causes the rpm's to go low. When I try to step on the gas there's no power. Why is it doing this?


Check the charging system with a load and without a load,your blower motor takes alot of power to turn on so charging and battery needs to be check also with the battery terminals especially on the positive post

2002 monte carlo will not charge has a new battery and a new alternator has 12 volts going to the big post and 12 volt going to 1 of the 2 small wires


You need more than 12 volts to charge the battery. How many amps does the alternator put out? This is what charges the battery.

Pulsating or flickering lights


your car is in denial.... Have your battery load testest. If it has any plate issues it can mislead the alternator regarding its state of charge abd, by all means make sure your battery cables are clean and tight. good luck
