You can have the OBD checked at any national parts store chain for free.
They will hook up a little reader, and then give you codes.

You can post them here if you like - or they will give you the meaning (so you buy the parts from them)

It can be something as little as an oil change is recommended - or a sensor is reporting bad information to the ECM. This can make fuel mileage incorrect, re-tard timing, etc, and should be checked ASAP.

Re-post your findings, and I'll help you understand what is wrong, and how to fix it.

You should get a code like P0466.

THanks!!

Hi

It really depends what code is stored and what caused it. In worst cases driving with "Check engine" light may cause more damage to the vehicle. A car may even stall while driving. If your check engine light came on, it is recommended to visit your dealer or a mechanic as soon as possible, just to be on a safe side. If the Check Engine light is flashing, this means that the engine computer (ECM) has detected that your engine is misfiring, which could damage your catalytic converter. Have the vehicle inspected as soon as possible.

My 2005 monte carlo is having trouble starting why?


You dont say how many miles are on the car.If you have 30000 miles the fuel filter must be replaced and every 30000 miles. I can hardly blow through mine after 30000.The gas stations have lots of dirt in their storage tanks.I also add a bottle of STP fuel treatment (red bottle) to consume the condensation (water) that forms in the gas tank.I do this about 4-5 times a year. Also the air filter needs to be kept clean.
I bought the 2001 Monte and now have 175000 miles and still get 34.5 mpg highway.
You must replace the spark plugs at about 75000 miles.
I drop the trans pan and install a new filter and then add new oil at every 35000.
I hope this helps you.

you will need to drive about 50 miles till the computer checks the system since it was reset. Your check engine light may come back again, if it does run a vacum test..

Take it to autozone and get a free dianostic check with a scan tool. The code will point you in the right direction to diagnos the problem.
