Question about Chevrolet Monte Carlo
I have a 99 Monte Carlo and my starter wire is frayed and split in several spots causing the car to be unreliable. How would I go about changing a spliced starter wire?
Okay Panda cub,disconnect battery cables,get wire cutters and cut out bad part,take to Autozone and tell them you want a piece of wire a little longer but same guage and some connectors and a crimp tool.Slpice the end about 3/8 and stick in connector and crimp,and do the other side.Get electrical tape and wrap up,

Well, I'm not really sure what the manufacturer's recommended interval is... But to be honest with you, once every 100000 kms, or 5-6 years is plenty for a transmission fluid/filter change is enough (yes, there is a filter inside the pan of the transmission, assuming it's an automatic). But, if you notice problems earlier (transmission starting to slip, fluid discoloration, or any other transmission related driveability issues) the first thing to do would be to do a transmission oil/filter change as soon as you can. Beware of these places that offer a transmission flush, that's about as useful as putting winter air in your tires, and costs money for nothing.

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

Verify that the Mass Air Flow Sensor wiring is connected properly and that there are no broken / frayed wires.
Inspect for any air leaks near the MAF sensor.
Take the MAF out and clean it using a spray cleaner such as brake cleaner or electrical contact cleaner. Be gentle with the sensor.
Check the voltage of the MAF sensor (refer to a repair manual for vehicle specific information)
Replace the MAF sensor.
