Try unplugged the mass air flow sensor and see if that corrects the problem.It is located in the air induction tube between the throttle body and air box on the driverside.If this helps you you may need a maf.

Why does my 2005 monte carlo idle high at stop signs/stop lights but not when i start it only when driving then when i shut the car off and start it again the idle is normal


check if the condition occurs when you have your foot on the brake at stop signs-stop lights. It may be an air leak in the brake booster that is allowing air into the manifold and altering the mixture to lean.

2000 monte carlo start the rpms go up and down than shuts off


This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

1978 monte carlo would not start until i blowed air back toward gas tank.. starts but wont stay cranked,,,,run rough and wont idle,,then shuts off. changed sparkplugs and wires..took off distributor and...


Sounds like vapor lock in the gas tank. I would try replacing the gas cap before doing anything else.

Sometimes the only solution is the easiest and last thing you try.

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
