I would check the fuel injectors to see if 1 of them isn't bad, i had a 1989 corvette with a L98 engine, and it would start up, run a few seconds , then die, then , when i would try to re start it . sometimes it would, and sometimes it wouldn't, i would have to let it set for a short while, but after i diagnosed the fuel injectors , i found out that the # 6 injector on my engine , was bad, i replaced it, and it ran fine aftewards, also , you can check the throttle positioning sensor, hope that this information has helped you.

My 2001 Monte Carlo ss won't stay running


I would need more information to give you a good answer. I need to know how long will it stay running a few seconds an hour what is it. I had a 2000 blazer that would start fine everyday and i would 10 minutes and it died sometimes i drove an hour and it died. I parked it and everytime i started it would run about 10-15 minutes and die. after it would die i would check fuel pressure which was good and spark. Well turns out there's no spark so i changed coil ,plugs, wires, rotor. I finally changed the crankshaft positioning sensor and that tuned out to be the problem so good luck.

Monte carlo blows cold air and overheats


It really runs hot within a minute of starting ?
An engine that runs hot in a few minutes is often having problems with the water pump or a blockage in the cooling system. The thermostat does not open until 195 degrees which takes 5 or 10 miles of driving.
During that time, the water pump should be circulating coolant in the block and the heater hoses.
A leaking head gasket should be putting extra pressure into the cooling system, and-or dumping coolant into the cylinders which would come out the exhaust pipe. But it should still take a few minutes for the engine to reach the boiling point of 240 degrees.

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.

My 1986 monte carlo wont stay running. It starts up and stops running when i push on the gas it loses power then stalls. I changed the fuel filter, new plugs and wires. i took off my cat to see if it was...


I know you say your timing seems fine but there is not too much that can cause this to happen with theses older car. My first thought was the timing chain might have jumped a tooth causing your cam timing to be off. This is like the only thing I have seen cause this problem with a 305 or 350 I would be checking the timing marks under the water pump to make sure it did not jump they are super easy to get to on theses cars.

Wont keep idle, car stalls out


I had this same problem on my 2005 monte carlo, took mechanic a while to figure out it was the idle air control valve. They also replace the idle air control motor.
