This one needs a little more information. However I would guess that your traction control light and A.B.S is on. This is a problem with the speed sensor in the hub assembly. You can get the part from Auto Zone for around 80 dollars or go to a dealer and pay as much as 400 for the same part. The repair is not that hard. Take your tire off and brake parts. There are two sets of bolts holding your brakes on to the hub the bolts are 15mm. After you remove the brakes then pull the brake rotor off their are no bolts holding it and it should come off easily. There are three bolts in the hub assembly the are in a triangle formation and have to be removed from behind the hub around the boot they are also 15mm. After that you need to remove the large bolt in the center of the hub it is a 36mm. You should be able to take a hammer and tap the back of the hub and get it off. Just reverse the steps to put the new one on. Something else you should be aware of is the wires that plug into the speed sensor that go toward the engine compartment are usually the problem. Take the wire loom off of the wire and trace it back to see if there are any breaks in them. You can get a revised speed sensor harness from a dealer for around 75 dollars but if you find the break in the wire then you can repair it yourself. These parts are problematic because the wires are constantly getting pulled on when you turn the wheel. I just finished redoing my hub and wires today on my 2001 SS It takes about an hour to replace the hub.

Roaring noise in front end of Monte Carlo 2001 the faster I go the faster it goes. Does not happen when I idle or rev the motor only when I'm driving?


A common problem with this generation of MC's is the ISS, or intermediate steering shaft. The shaft turns with the wheels and does exactly what you describe. If it isn't too far gone, a repair shop can do a lube job on it and some more parts on your front end to fix the symptom. If it is too far gone, you will need a new ISS.

There are other front end problems (power steering, wheel hubs, axles, brake rotors, etc.) that will cause similar noises and symptoms. If you aren't highly skilled and mechanically inclined, it is much better to just take the car into a repair shop for a diagnosis and/or estimate than to throw parts and labor at the general area. If somebody makes a bad judgement or two, the cost of replacing parts that do not eliminate the root cause will quickly add up to more than the cost of a proper repair. Not to mention the time involved. 25362372-awph1b3yhxdrnyqdcrsrelkr-5-0.jpg

Fix front wheel bearing 2001 monte carlo ss


Remove the wheel, remove the axle nut, remove the brake caliper and bracket, remove the brake disc, remove the three bolts that go through the back and hold the bearing assembly in the knuckle, disconnect the abs connector and slide the bearing assembly out. Reverse the procedure to install the new one.

The abs and trac lights stay on when the engine is running. how do I fix the problem ?


Something as simple as a different tire size can cause the abs to go nuts. I even had it where the two tires were the same size. But a different brand name. Each manufacture has their own tire sizing so not all tires a equal in size. Even though it says on the side of the tire that they are the same size.

Sometimes the cooper inside the insulation of the wires going to the sensors corrodes. Especially on the front units. It reads more ohms than normal but not open and is very intermittent. However moving the wires my make it work for a while. That's why replacing bearings seems to fix the problem but it comes back after a while.

You can test the speed sensors yourself...
Front sensor specs:
956 to 1240 ohms in 41 to 110 degree weather
at least 100mV AC (NOT DC!) volts when hub is spun by hand
Rear sensor specs:
950 to 1300 ohms in 41 to 110 degree weather
At least 100mV AC (NOT DC!) volts when hub is spun by hand

Here is some information from service bulletins that could be related to the problem. The traction control, antilock brakes, and tire inflation monitor all use wheel speed sensor input.

This first bulletin seems like it could be the problem because engine movement is involved:

GM Corporate Bulletin 00-06-04-049B
This Bulletin covers a problem that can cause multiple failures, one of which is an Antilock brake problem, and covers 2000-2003 Impala and Monte Carlo built prior to 2/03.
Check to make sure the wiring harness adjacent to the AC accumulator/dryer is not rubbing against the ac accumulator chaffing through the insulation of the wires in the harness.

GM Corporate Bulletin 03-05-25-008 overview:
GM front wheel speed sensor harness replacement - 2001-2003 Buick Century, Regal; 2001-2003 Chevrolet Impala, Monte Carlo; 2001-2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue; 2001-2004 Pontiac Grand Prix
This bulletin is about inspecting the harness going to the front wheel speed sensor for wear from contact with front suspension parts.
Repair harnesses/leads are available that can be spiced onto the main harness.

2000 monte carlo / noise from rear wheels


That's what it sounds like to me also. I would put the rear up on jack stands and spin the wheels to male shure wich side it is. Don't forget to block the front wheels for safety as you will not be able to set your e- brake for this test.

2001 monte carlo abs traction control lights on after brake change. Anyway, of resetting


No. What you can do is look for one of the abs sensors that is either disconnected at the wheel hub or use an ohm meter on the connections to test the resistance. If you find one with OL, that is a short and look for a broken wire.
