Question about 1996 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

1 Answer

Oil leaking I found somewhat a large oil stain on the snow after backing up the Monte Carlo 1996 car from my overnight parking spot. The position of the oil stain was right beneath the middle of the front of the car (I don't know what jargon I have to use to describe it as knowing nothing about a car. Therefore, please bear with me). I am not sure if this is a big problem and if it needs immediate attention. Thank you so much for helping me out here. I truly appreciate it.

Well an oil leak can be a lot of things. Simple fix would be if you just had an oil change and the plug wasnt screwed in right. If not there may be broken seals, (hard to do but you may have even cracked teh oil pan). Maybe the oil filter needs to be checked. If you have a jack and are willing to do it yourself. Lift the car and check where its dirty with oil. follow that trail of oil to the source of the leak.

We have a 1996 3.1 monte carlo ls we need to replace the crankshaft senor but we cant find it on the motor is there a picture of where one could be


The crankshaft position sensor is a two pin sensor made up of plastic like material. It is located on the back side of the engine block about half way between the oil pan and the top of the block. It can only be accessed by crawling under the car. 33899bbd-15f1-451a-9a7a-a94f8be62e27.png

I was driving my 1996 monte carlo and the red oil light came on. it sputterd for a min then stalled and wont stay runnin for more then 2 to 3 sec, do you think its the oil pump?


check the oil level, then the oil filter and change the oil. if light is still on replace the oil pump. also check the old engine oil for small pieces of metal in case the engine spun a bearing if you see and dont start the engine for risk of further damage.

2000 Monte Carlo has a slow oil leak started noticing oil on the garage floor. I also noticed that if I park the car on a small incline such as my drive way the leak goes away at least there's no oil on...


as a mechanic I will say it can be multi things that can cause a leak. but when you say it goes away on slight incline that normaly means it is toward the front of the engine. I must say just because their is low miles does not mean a seal will not go out. I have replaced seals on cars with only 10,000. It is normaly caused from vibration or misplacment of seal. If you look under the car look for a wet spot on the engine or its components then email me back and I may be able to help you narrow it down. I would not freak out to bad though monte carlos are easy to work on and should not cost much to fix it.

Low oil light comes on but goes out after restart.. this started happening recently .. the oil lvl is fine ive checked it many times it only comes on after its sat overnight at the first start.. shut it...


In this case it is usually the low oil level sensor that is defective; however it could be an issue in that electrical circuit as well from the scenario you have given.
