Question about 1995 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

1 Answer

Monte Carlo fuel problem

My son ran his 1995 Monte out of gas. Put some in and it started up and ran fine. 5 to 10 minutes driving time later it acted like it was out of fuel (shows half tank) and won't restart. It does have spark. Placing my hand on the bottom of the fuel tank I can feel the pump run for a little while when the key is turned on.

Fuel psi regulator?

Thanks,
SBWJ

Well its clear that you got oil leak

Here is a solution:
most likely the valve cover gasket is leaking. this is best case scenario. a fairly easy and inexpensive fix.

most other oil leaks are difficult to fix and very expensive.

-------------

edit.
you can get the gasket at a renault dealership. an auto parts store might have one, or can order you one. in the USA, there are very few renaults, so, most auto parts places would not stock parts for them. there is no demand.

turn on the key (not cranking) and push in the pin in the fuel line valve to see if you get a steady stream of fuel (use a rag to stop the spray for getting all over)-this will bleed the line of air. you might have to remove the plugs to check for flooding too, dry the plugs off if they are wet.

BAD GAS!!! Empty tank, lines and and float. Get tarnish out with carb cleaner and put in fresh gas with chemical to dry lines of water/whatever. Replace fuel filter.

1995 chevrolet monte carlo sounds like it is not getting gas


Is there a fuel cut-off switch in your trunk? if so the it should be a red button inside trunk on left side or driver side, You just push that in and it will start sending fuel again. If not then refer to manual to see if there is a Fuel Cut-off Installed and if not then disregard and sorry/happy I couldnt/could help!

Chevy monte carlo won't start????


sounds to me like your coil packed it in or your timing belt ( chain ) has jumped a tooth. If you have access to a scanner run a diagnostic check on your car to see if it comes up with any trouble codes.

97 monte carlo will not start


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
