Question about 1996 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
We have a 1996 3.1 monte carlo ls this is what all we did to it we changed the plugs and the crankshaft sensor and and this is what all happened it started when we would go up hills is acted like it would lose power and not wanting to go now after we changed the parts the battier wont hold charge and the car will crank over like it wants to state and then it starts and then it cuts off then backfires we dont have any clues about cars so if you could help please break it down for us thank you
First place to check is what you have done . Check for the correct firing order of the plug leads as it is possible to cross 2 wires. Next make sure that the leads are not touching each other as this will cause cross over and fire the wrong plug. Next check the sensor position as there is an air gap to the rotor that has to be correct. Check that the sensor is tight and that there is no dirt in the air gap. check that the wires are properly connected . Lastly run the fault codes to determine if something else is not causing the problems.
