Hi, There are many reasons that your car could be running round and the check engine light is on. To narrow down the possibilities a scan tool needs to be connected to the vehicle which will tell you the trouble codes that are causing the engine light to turn on. If you go to your local autozone they can scan for the codes and give them to you free of charge, once you have done that report those codes back here and that can help us give you much more accurate information as to what is causing this.
Thank you,

Flashing check engine light on 1997 Monte Carlo

If the CHECK ENGINE light come on, the PCM (computer car) have stored a fault code there; I suggest scanned this and note what fault code is there. Sometimes Autozone or AutoShop make this reader with OBD tools for free.

Keep in touch.

2005 monte carlo seems to run rough / misfire when warm.

Remove your ignition module and take it to a parts house to be tested. This is common behavior for a failing module after it gets warm. Have them check it several times to insure it gets hot during testing.

Change oil soon light stays on and service engine soon light has come on.

You reset the change oil soon light by a couple of different ways depending on your model. Your owners manual will let you know. Some is by depressing the accelerator when car is not running but in accessories mode on ignition. Others you can reset through the radio. Take a look at your owners manual on this. For the service engine soon light, take it to a autozone and they will run a diagnostic for free. Then they can tell you just what is going on and will have the part to fix it. It is probably an oxygen sensor if it is otherwise running fine. good luck and I hope this helps.

2003 Monte Carlo SS Hesitates and Dies after running for awhile

The ck engine light should not be ignored, what sensor was shown to be bad ? Have it scanned again and replace the sensor that is bad if it still runs rough you might want to consider a tune up. Plugs, wires, fuel and air filter's and clean the throttle body with some gumout. It could also be the IAC motor Idle Air Control. Good Luck
