I have had the same prob in my 1996 Lumina. Thought it was rings or valves. Check out your trans vacuum modulator to see if the gasket in it is bad. If so, then it is sucking trans fluid through the vacuum hose back into the intake manifold and burns it in the chamber. Mimics a valve or ring prob.

    all these things could cause it to smoke my advice is to have it hooked to a computer

    at your local dealer or garage to find out for sure. A little smoke now can turn into alot later when its too late good luck and thank you again for choosing FixYa.com

I have a 96 Monte Carlo and it's overheating. The


Replace the thermostat. After that, if problem persists, feel the radiator with engine at normal operating temp. If part of it feels cool, this would indicate a restricted radiator, Very common.Also purchase a block tester, available at napa or other reputable parts store for about thirty dollars. Follow directions, cheapest way to find head gasket breech into cooling system. Good luck!

95 monte carlo 3.1 cooling fan comes on at 3/4 temp, when the coolant temp sensor is disconnected both fans run strongly until car is shut off, but when its connected only 1 fan will come on at 3/4 temp


to check both fans work at high temps put a sheet of card over the rad to block off airflow and run engine till hot,keeping an eye on when they both start (one is set at a lower temp than the other),if the second fan dont start when the engine is really hot THEN you have a problem.....
