If the code is 301 it means there is no power from that cylinder. It could be a problem with the ignition, fuel injector, or something mechanical.

    No way of knowing until someone checks it out. Could even be something that was already repaired or replaced.

Take it to autozone and get a free dianostic check with a scan tool. The code will point you in the right direction to diagnos the problem.

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

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.

My chevy Monte Carlo won't start so I took it to the dealership. They replace the body control module and ignition switich and still the security light comes on while driving. refuse to start if parked...


If the security light is coming on, there should be a trouble code to help diagnose the problem. My Buick had a problem with a connection in the key cylinder. I replaced the cylinder to correct the problem.

I'd suspect a sticking injector--car should have set the check engine light. Read the code(s) to progress further. If the coil pack were a problem, it would not be likely to fix itself. If the codes indicate an injector problem, try an injector cleaner in the fuel--worst case, replace the bad injector. The codes should indicate which cylinder to change the injector.

2004 monte carlo ss 3.8 engine diagnostic message "cylinder 5 misfire"- will changing the spark plugs resolve this issue?


it is a good place to start, replace ignition wires and plugs, for that year 3800 i recomend autolite iridium plugs and premium 7MM wires.
once you replace the parts erase the code and see if it returns.
cylinder 5 is the 3rd counting from the left on front of engine.

How do i reset change oil lite on 2003 Chevy Monte Carlo SS w/ 3.8


If so, turn the key to the on position, do not start the engine. press the gas pedal three time all the way to the floor. the light should start to blink. turn the key off and then start the car. the light should blink a few more times and then stay off.
if this does not work then it is something with the radio that needs to be done that i do not know how to do.
