Question about Cars & Trucks

Changed ECM i changed my ecm on my Monte Carlo bc I was having a ton problems: ran really bad, gas use was extremely poor, car would crank for few secs then cut right back off couldn't get it to stay running, etc. I changed it and took fuses out to reset ecm to my car, but it's still not right. It overheated and pushed all coolant in my car back into the coolant reservoir, not sure why. But I don't have a clue as to what I need to do next please help

Replacing the ECM solve the other problems.
You still have one problem to solve witch is the overheating.

if so, start by replacing the radiator cap.
Good luck

05 Chrysler 300 5.7l when crank engine turn over like it's getting too much gas. Check spark plug it's wet with gas on it. Spark plugs are new

I would check the coolant temperature sensor...the one that sends engine coolant temperature to the ECM. If the fail, they usually fail in the extreme, meaning that it tells the ECM that its something like -30 degrees F. This results in the ECM demanding tons of fuel in an attempt to start what it thinks is a very cold engine (much like the old chokes that were on older cars).

Diagram for engine timing for a 3100 Chevy V6

It's on TDC so align marks on cam shaft and crank shaft with center of cam & crank shafts and the ECM will go from there. so you will have to change the timing chain if its loose or worn out.

I need help I just purchased a new ecm for my 1995 monte carlo n the wires it was bad to due corrosion and I got the wires off of a 1995chevy luminum and the guy used black tape for the wires n my car just...

The new ECM may not be compatible with your car - ECMs are designed for the specific sensors and engine in a car. In fact, the wiring/connectors may not be the same. You should never change the original wiring unless it is with the harness designed for your specific car, and if the connectors or wiring don't line up with the new ECM, you are really going to have problems.

    My 97 monte carlo will turn over but there isn't any power to fuel pump I know it works and I've changed all the fuses and relays and also got the key checked.... I don't get it also checked...

    The ECM BAT fuse powers the fuel pump through the relay. If the gray wire has power and the black wire has ground, and the fuel pump does not operate, its bad.

    You said you changed the ecm module, is that the ecm or the ignition module. Do you have access to a scanner to check cranking rpm? That way you can test the new crank sensor and the wiring and the ignition module.
