You don't have to pull it to replace the TCC. Remove the pan and you can access the TCC solenoid. 40b12bb6-08f8-4f1c-b959-9bfe6f7b08fb.gif

96 Monte carlo z34 won't crank over unless I jump

Sounds like a problem with the key switch, probably the security system. You may only have power to the fuel pump when the engine is cranking.
Is the security light on or flashing ?

Dense white smoke usually means coolant is getting into the combustion chambers. If the engine then quit and will not easily turn over (as you described 'battery is dead'), you may have one or more cylinders hydraulically locked. There is coolant in the cylinder and the piston cannot come to the top on the compression stroke because water prevents it; air is compressible, water is not. Remove the spark plugs one by one and see if they are wet or very clean (steam cleaned). If so, you need to find why coolant is getting into that/those cylinders. Bad head gasket, cracked head, cracked block.

Hello I was wondering if a 4T60-E Transmition from a 1995 Monte Carlo Z34 (3.4L) fit a 1997 Monte Carlo LS (3.1L)??

I just answered the same question for another person. Physically the transmissions will interchange; just be sure to check ALL electrical plug's BEFORE installation AND change your linkage arm. The flywheel SHOULD be the same diameter also,just be sure to check the torque converter bolt pattern b4 installation. Lastly,be sure that the dip sticks are the same........ALL the part's on both transmission's are interchangeable,change as necessary.

My 1997 monte carlo z34 3.4 engin is holding high rpms

I had a similar problem on a 3.4 Lumina Z34. It was a leaking intake gasket. Be careful with the plastic vaccumn lines as they will get brittle.
