Question about 2002 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

1 Answer

Why does my 2002 monte carlo start when it wants to. turns on sometimes and other times check engine light comes on

Posted by on

  • Does the starter motor engage on its own or do you mean its intermitant when starting? The starter sends a signal to the management computer and if the signal misses sometimes it'll record a fault. The starter may have bad brushes or a bad connection from the battery. Check the towers for oxidization. Clean them with boiling water and then coat them with white petroleum gelly NOT GREASE....If its the other thing does your vehicle have a remote starter on the fob? Hope this has been a little helpfull....Regards Johngee

Could be a dozen different things.
Is the check engine light on ?
Does it happen at the same time or under the same conditions ?
Does it start back up or do you have to wait ?

The change oil light came on. on my friends 2002 monte carlo ss so i gave it an oil change and a new filter . the light won't go off.


The "Oil Change Reminder Light" has to be reset.

To reset the oil change reminder light with the accelerator pedal, turn the ignition switch to the ON position. Do not start engine. After turning the ignition ON, depress the accelerator pedal fully to the floor and let it up again 3 times within 5 seconds. The oil change reminder light should flash a few times to let you know that it is resetting. If it does not flash, turn the switch OFF and repeat the procedure. After it flashes, turn the ignition switch OFF. Then start the engine. The light should come on for a bulb check then go out and stay out.

2002 monte carlo overheating


Better make sure the fan works. There is a switch on the radiator that turns the fan on when it gets to a certain temperature. It could be the fan or the switch. Your thermostat is not your cap, it's in a different location. (Usually at the engine end of the upper radiator hose) Get the leak check! A good garage can pressure test the system to see what leaks you might have.

He rocked it? you married this man LOL

Try checking your Battery Cable connections, positive and negative, at the posts and trace them , check your ground. Check your battery voltage w/ a voltmeter.

My check engine light stays on, on my 2002 monte carlo.


You can disconnect the battrery for 5 minutes, this will reset the light and erase the trouble code, but if the problem is still there that turned the light on it will come back on in a few miles.
