2002 Monte Carlo SS starting when it wants

2002 Monte carlo SS v6 3800 engine, car was driving with a slight knocking now it does not knock but only starts when it wants too. I checked battery cables and replaced battery. The car has full power and clicks when you try to start it.If it doesnt start ill wait awhile and magically it starts.No engine light on so i cant be checked by the computer. Any help would be appreciated.

Based on the symptoms you describe, it sounds like Mass-Air-Flow sensor could be faulty. My 2004 Monte SS (3.8L NA) experienced these same symptoms and research yielded suspect Mass-Air-Flow sensor anomalies, which were confirmed by dealer. Attempted cleaning to no avail, and replaced for full resolution. Highly encourage shopping around for the part (should be able to source one for under $50), since a shop will severely inflate the parts cost, not to mention the labour. Easily a DIY job.

The Starter silenoid is probably what the problem is. And the knocking could that be a loose starter? The two problems doesn't seem connected.

The engine cooling fan is controlled by a thermostatic switch. From your description, I believe you are assuming the fan comes on immediately when the engine starts. Not so. It only comes on when a certain temperature is reached

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.
