Sounds like the fuel is draining back towards the fuel tank, which is the reason for extended cranking till fuel reaches injectors. My guess would be the fuel pump in the fuel tank. It contains a REVERSE FLOW VALVE, which SHOULD prevent this. A visible way to check would to place a manual fuel pressure gauge on the fuel rail valve. After shutting the engine off note the degree of pressure drop, if any. Hope this helps

2003 monte carlo 3.4 130,000 skips on start up


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.

2005 monte carlo seems to run rough / misfire when warm.


Remove your ignition module and take it to a parts house to be tested. This is common behavior for a failing module after it gets warm. Have them check it several times to insure it gets hot during testing.

95 monte carlo wont run right in the morning


I had the same problem on one of my GM vehicles with the 3.1L engine (which I assume yours has)

We could never find out what it was but replaced ALL the sensors, spark plugs, and spark plug wires and it got better, then eventually fixed itself.

If you have no check engine light on then its hard to pinpoint something like this.

Check MAF sensor first, then other air/fuel components.

My 2000 monte carlo ss with a 3800 engine tends to start and stall about six times befor running, I pulled 3 codes 0108, 0404, and 1404 from the the computer .


I believe the codes are emmission related. I would have the fuel pump pressure checked. The fuel filter and fuel pressure regulator seems to be the failrue. The restarting of the engine several times is making the system build up enough pressure to start running . I would take to a shop to have the fuel pressure checked.

1995 monte carlo wont turn over


Pull off the fan belt and see if it turns over. the alternator or water pump may have seized up and that is what is preventing the engine from turning over. if it starts don't run it, shut it off and spin the pulleys on the fromt of the engine to see if they all turn free. Mike

Chevy monte carlo won't start????


sounds to me like your coil packed it in or your timing belt ( chain ) has jumped a tooth. If you have access to a scanner run a diagnostic check on your car to see if it comes up with any trouble codes.
