Open Question

GEN light on in a 1970 chevy monte carlo will start sometimes and had the voltage regulator replaced and still doing this??

Voltage regulator was replaced, car starts when it wants to, and the GEN light stays on when you are either in park or idling at a light when it is running. I think it is the starter the garage thinks its the altenator, what would the best options be as i have had this car being repaired now for 2 years and the garage keeps doing the same things over so now i want to try and figure it out myself

SOURCE: 1995 chev monte carlo high IDLE

what it basically sounds like is you have a vaccum leak. chances are either the vaccum line to the manifold is got a hole in it or your mps(manifold pressure sensor might be on the fritz) if you replaced the manifold gasket it was because you thought you were sucking air and you thought you were leaqning the fuel air mixture some how. take a look for the vaccum leak and i'm sure you will solve this problem... please rate this..thanks

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 2003 Monte Carlo SS Hesitates and Dies after running for awhile

The ck engine light should not be ignored, what sensor was shown to be bad ? Have it scanned again and replace the sensor that is bad if it still runs rough you might want to consider a tune up. Plugs, wires, fuel and air filter's and clean the throttle body with some gumout. It could also be the IAC motor Idle Air Control. Good Luck

SOURCE: 2001 Monte Carlo battery goes dead over night

9 times out of 10 it is the factory amplifier. I had this same problem and it was the amplifier. Disconnect the amp located in the trunk by the speakers and see if the drain continues. You will not have music, but having the amp replaced with an aftermarket one will solve this problem,
