Key is designed to not come out unless the transmission is in the park position. If the shifter is in park but the transmission is not, then the linkage (which hooks the shifter to the transmission) has somehow come out of adjusment. It will need to be adjusted - I would suggest having this done by a professional.

My 97 Monte Carlo wants to turn over but just won't?

You might have seized your engine, meaning the crankshaft is stuck, in which case it isn't very hard to break loose usually, but you would still need to find out what caused the problem. Also, it might sound crazy, but it might also be that your A/C compressor has locked up and is keeping your serpentine belt from rotating. I had it happen to my '96 Monte Carlo. You can determine if this is the problem by simply removing the serpentine belt and trying to manually turn the compressor pulley. If it does not turn then you need to replace it. Hope this helps.

Fuel gauge always showing a quarter tank on a 70 Monte Carlo?

Sounds like the sending unit in the tank is stuck. It works kind of like the float in your toilet. There is a piece that floats on the top of the fuel and it is attached to a rod that goes to your sending unit. The higher the float, the more gas is shown on the gauge due to the position signal the sending unit is sending out to the fuel gauge. If it is stuck, it probably is best to have it replaced.

How do you self replace alternator in 1993 Monte Carlo 3.4 motor?

There's no such thing as a "1993 Monte Carlo 3.4 motor"... The first generation Chevrolet Monte Carlo (1970-1972). In 1973, the second generation Monte Carlo (1972-1977). Third generation (1978-1980). The fourth generation Monte Carlo (1981-1988). The last rear wheel drive Monte Carlo was built December 11, 1987 at 5:29PM at the Pontiac Michigan plant. After a six year absence, however, the Monte was re-introduced for a fifth generation (1995-1999). In 1998 and 1999 the 3.4L DOHC (215 HP) was changed to a 3.8L (A mere 200 HP) for the Z34 package.Back to your question pertaining to a presumable 95-97 3.4L engine. The alternator is replaced by removing the right front drive axle. Not as hard of a task as you may think it to be, but if you don't know what you're doing nor have a book to go by, then it can be a tall order. I would recomend going to Auto Zone ---- BUY THIS: Haynes 24048 Chevrolet Lumina Monte Carlo and Impala Haynes Repair Manual for 1995 thru 2005 Front-wheel Drive Models (like $16.00). Then, may a bee line for NAPA and buy your brand new alternator there. It will cost a lot more but it will surely last the life of the engine as opposed to Autozone's Refurbed Crappers. Those go out too fast for as much work as you have to go through to replace the alternator on this engine. Be sure to compare the bracket fittings on the new alternator against the original. You may, more than likely, have to remove the old pulley and place it on the new alternator. For this you would need a "Pulley Puller". You can rent this at AutoZone. Also, DON'T FORGET TO UNHOOK THE NEGATIVE TERMINAL ON YOUR BATTERY BEFORE ANY ELECTRICAL WORK IS DONE TO YOUR CAR AND REMOVE ANY METAL JEWELRY AS WELL. I SAW A GUY NEARLY LOSE HIS FINGER BECAUSE OF HIS WEDDING RING GOT STUCK BETWEEN THE TERMINALS ON THE STARTER SOLENOID. GOOD LUCK!!
