Question about 2001 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

2001 Monte Carlo SS Stalls while driving

117k miles on monte carlo. Originally car was lagging when accelerating or shifting through gears. Recently it has begun to stall at speeds between 20-40 mph. RPM's go to zero, battery light comes on, steering wheel locks. Usually it can restart if shifted into neutral and turning the key without having to stop the car. After taking it to the shop they said it displayed crankshaft sensor code, but didn't think this would be the cause of the problem. Any help would be appreciated.
Have replaced air filter, spark plugs, fuel filter, and got trans flushed since the problems started in hopes of finding an easy fix.

Its your M.A.F thats the air flow sincer i had that problem also but as soon as i got a new 1 it stopped and ran fine. the part cost about 160 bucks at auto zone and is easy to take off and put on yourself cuz the shop charge about 300 bucks to do a 3 min job but im sure that is the problem with your car

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.

SOURCE: install a 02 sensor in a 01 monte carlo ss

For the bank 0 (the engine one) Undo the dogbones holding the engine from rocking and push the car forward until it stops, then set the parking brake. With the car COLD, spray the sensor down with PB Blaster and tap it (TAP, not smack) and wait a bit, then use your O2 removal socket to pop it out. Put the new one in with a tiny bit of copper antisieze and be EXTREMELY careful not to get any on the head, just the threads - less is more here. Reconnect it, and then hld down the brake and take the parking brake off, then slowly release the brake to let the engine rock back. Reconnect the dogbones and you're all set.

For the Bank 1 (post cat), lift 1 side of the car and set it on stands, and chock the other wheels, slide under and look after the cat, before the resonator, on the ubend in the exhaust, unplug the sensor and PB blast it a bunch, then use the appropriate wrench. Install the new one with the above instructions.

Hard shifting from 1st to 2nd

I have been hearing a possible solution for this problem is changing the oil filter in the trans oil pan. But ive been looking all over for a solutionand thats the only legit one ive found. It said when the oil gets clogged it doesnt flow to the transmission as nicely as normal therefore leading to lagging changes

2002 ls monte carlo "shudders" between 2,000-2400 rpm.....

My monte carlo would hit 2nd gear and bog down and not shift properly until it got to the last gear. I had the catalytic converter replaced and that fixed that problem. (It also created another, but not near as bad)
