I had the same problem with a 2000 monte SS. I changed thermostat, disconnected battery and reconnected, and problem was fixed. This happened in cold months of the year when the engine wouldn't warm up completely and let the car run at it's optimum air/fuel mixture.

Hi, check the connection on your temperature sensor. If the connection is good, replace the sensor. The cost is about $11 at autozone. The sensor is located at the back of the engine, near the transmission. See pictures below. Use some water pump sealant on the threads when installing the new sensor. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

2002 monte carlo ss the will start but the engine cooling fan want start


The engine cooling fan is controlled by a thermostatic switch. From your description, I believe you are assuming the fan comes on immediately when the engine starts. Not so. It only comes on when a certain temperature is reached

1999 3.1L V6 Monte Carlo: Had the engine replaced. Now the dual cooling fans do not come on when the engine heats up as before. They only come on now when the A/C is running. How do I get this corrected so...


The fans are controlled by the ECM.they will not normally come on untill about 235 degrees.Have someone put a scan tool on your car,run it and see how hot it gets.Your new engine may a different coolant sensor, which changed the reading on your gauge.

My rpm is going crazy


Either the gauge is defective, the sensor at the distributor, or the computer module.

Could be a loose wire any where in the chain between the sensor and the gauge.

2001 montie carlo fans wont cool off engine


if it is overheating try replacing the thermostat first. If it is stuck closed the coolant cant cycle through the engine properly. Also, try a flush and fill.

2001 chevy monte carlo is overheating when driving


Hi;
If your engine cools down when moving fast, you either have a problem with your water pump or your electric fans that cool off your radiator and a/c condenser. This is controlled by a temperature switch, but these fans should kick on instantly when A/C is selected.

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.

Cooling fans wont turn on


Hello. I understand your frustrations as I too own a 2001 monte carlo and have had the same problem...along with several others. My engine temp gauge would show ZERO degrees because of the bad coolant temp sensor. So I replaced it with one from autozone (BIG MISTAKE) The one from autozone was **** and gave the car a different problem. The fans would not run while the engine was running and would run when the engine was off until the battery rundown protector would shut them down. this lasted about 2 weeks during which I had to keep my heater on (in the middle of summer) to keep my car from over heating because my fans wouldnt run. The autozone jerks said "if my temp gauge was working then the sensor was doing its job" and that "there is another problem" Well I finally called the dealership and they told me that autozone is junk and to try advance auto parts and to get the next one up from the cheapest...this is what they use...and NASCAR uses. It was a few dollars more (around $25) Problem solved. However a few months later the cooling fans went completly out..this was due to them experiencing such high temperatures for 2 weeks. I replaced them with ones from a salvage yard for $50. Dont let this happen to you...

That slushy brown stuff is signs of a blown head gasket. Have a code scanner hooked up to find out why the light is on, it will probably show coolant temperature sensor. Just out of curiosity, check the pvc valve (if your car has one), and see if it's clogged. If it is replace it, the crank case is not getting ventilated.
