Question about 1995 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

1 Answer

Is it possible to bypass the ignition switch on a 1995 MonteCarlo

My 1995 Monte Carlo won't start. I'm not an idiot with cars but I'm not an expert mechanic either. I turn the key, it does nothing. Like if no power but I have plenty of power and I'm able to crank the engine with a screwdriver directly at the starter,but Engine cranks but car won't stay running because fuel pump isn't working. with the key in the on position II have power but I don't hear the fuel pump working(which obviously has nothing to do with engine not cranking). My diagnoses s ignition switch, I fiddled with the key yesterday and got the car to start but when I turned the car off it would not start again. Right now I don't have 160 bucks for a new switch. On my older vehicles I have hotwired the ignition. Is it possible to do so on a 1995 monte carlo? Also,if you feel I'm totally wrong about my diagnoses please feel free to inform me of your opinion, obviously the people here have more knowledge about cars than I do. I appreciate any help or advise . .

    Thank you for your suggestion. I didn't think it was the key because when I turn the ignition to the On position I get power to the radio and power windows etc. Things that won't work unless the ignition is on. The chip doesn't control the power that turns on when the ignition is in the on position? Does the chip in the key only control the starter and fuel pump? Those are the only 2 things that won't work when the ignition is on. Again thank you for your help, I am a total idiot when it comes to these newer cars with chips and stuff. Your suggestion sounds like the best 1 to try first.

It could be the key. It has a Pass lock system with the chip in the key. Have the chevy dealer service department check the key for resistance. You cannot use a "copy" key cut at the hardware store. If you get a replacement key from the dealer the car might crank and start.

SOURCE: when do i change the transmission fluid 2005 monte carlo?

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.

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.

There should be a decal on the bottom side of your hood, or somewhere in the engine compartment. If there isn't just put it on the crankshaft (bottom pulley) and go ribs to ribs, and flats to flats, and work your way around.
