If the transmission wont engage in any gear,there is a internal fault and will have to be rebuilt or replaced.We installed a used transmission this past year in a 1998 monte carlo.These days its more cost wise to install a used unit rather than buying a new one.

Ive got a 2002 buick lesabre that wont start when its hot

(if engineok)
you lost spark ever do a spark test? x6 or 8 cyl?
you did not say it fails to crank you said start.
lost fueling, all EFI cuts fueling by law. so spark is 1st check.

does car start on test fuel and sound good.
then lost fueling is the cause.

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.

2004 Monte Carlo jumps/lurches/skips when taking off. (Automatic)

It sounds like it could be the torque converter going out. lists them for about $88. You should also check your transmission fluid to make sure it doesn't smell or look burnt. If it is it should be thoroughly flushed (not just changed) out along with the transmission filter. Here is a step by step on how to do that. Get an opinion from a trusted mechanic (I know those are hard to find) on whether you should pursue the fluid flush or go all in with the torque convertor (which would result in a fluid flush as well).

I buying 1999 monte carlo and the older man and the man said it wont move in drive or over drive but gear 2 and i went over to test drive in and he put tran fluid and i shift from 2 to drive and it work...

That is correct.....the automatic transmission works on fluid pressure to change gears, and if there i no or little fulid, then this will create problems in shifting........

If it works great, but be careful to wonder why the fluid had to be topped up...if it was low, it either leaked out, so there would be eviddence of dripping on the concrete/driveway...or it is being burnt, through a vaccum leeak......both of which can be expensive.....

I would suggest a thoruogh check performed by a mechanic that you trust !!

How much transmission fluid do you put in a 04 monte carlo.

Are you replacing it or just adding fluid? A good rule is to add one quart at a time and check it.

Transmission fluid

i think the monte carlo is just like the grand prix i just did maint. on, if so i asked my dad a couple days later (trans expert 30years) where to fill and check fluid at since i could not do it and he said that owners have no option but to take it into the dealer or trans shop.and i know that the montes and grand prixs have the same drive train.

97 monte carlo will not start

if you remove the battery and charge it than reinstall (make shore all lighting and non essentals are off) and if the car runs for awhile then the problem most likely is with the alternator
