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.

Have several problems abs light on traction control light,low coolant light on, seat belt light on ,driver side heated seats stopped working and fuel gauge doesnt work always reads full


My 2003 Monte Carlo and my husbands 2003 chevy pickup both had the ABS and traction control lights on. When it began it only came on once in a while but got worse until the lights were on all the time. After several attempts to find the problem we purchased a ABS Brack Scan. Part #CP9449. Although it doesn't pinpoint the exact problem it does tell you what wheel has the issue and possible problems. My problem was a bad wire in the harness. Good luck!

2000 Chevy Monte Carlo fuel gauge always reads full, unless the engine is running and in neutral. What repair parts are needed and how much time for a mechanic to fix it?


First you will need to test your information display located above the rear view mirror. The easiest way to see if it is accurate is the next time you need gas, fill the tank up! Your car holds 17 gallons of fuel, the display should read 17 gallons after a fill up. If it displays anything other than the 17 gallon amount, then your fuel level sensor is bad. If it appears to be consistent with the 17 gallon reading, keep your eye on it for several miles and after a couple of times that you restart your vehicle to be sure that it is in fact reading correctly. If you are convinced that information is consistent with the actual data, then it's much worse......It needs a new fuel pump! Good luck!

2002 monte carlo fuel gauge doesnt work,pump works ok.


It is likely the fuel level sending unit. I had a customer with an 03 Monte Carlo that the pump went out and the fuel gauge hadn't worked in about a year. We replaced the fuel pump module and it took care of both problems. I believe the sending unit is available separately from the complete module.

1999 Monte Carlo fuel gauge stopped working


Hi there. If the fuel gauge is the only one acting up, its probably a loose or corroded wire on top of the gas tank where the fuel pump sets in. It could also be a loose wire on the back of the gauge, which is easier to get to so you could always check that first by popping off the dash pannel and pulling out the instrument cluster and looking for a broke wire on the back of the fuel gauge. But if I had to bet I would guess its on the other end by the fuel pump. Worse case sinario, maybe a bad sending unit.
