An interesting question because you don't say why you changed all those components and parts in the first place. I have to ASSUME that the SES light came on, you changed all the parts, and the light is still on. Is that right? The 97 Monte has a Powertrain Control Module (PCM)that utilizes OBD ll fault codes. You plug in a scanner to read the fault code(s) that turned the SES on in the first place. If you did scan, I'm guessing you had codes ranging from PO300 through to P0336. For some reason, you changed all the parts you listed. Was the engine missing? Did it stop missing after the parts change? If it did and the SES light is still on try this: 1) Clear the codes with your scanner or, 2)Disconnect the ground cable from the battery, or, if you have theftlock, pull the PCM power fuse to kill the power to the PCM for 60 seconds. Reconnect the power and turn the key to see if the SES stays on. If the light goes off, run the engine for a few minutes, shut it off and restart, if there is still no SES light, problem is fixed because no new codes were set. If the light is on, you're probably getting false misfire trouble codes because you replaced either the 7X or 24X crank position sensor. You will have to get a dealer to zap your PCM with a Crankshaft Position Sensor Variation Learning Procedure. Hope this helped

A 'spark ignition ' engine is your regular gasoline engine as opposed to a diesel, which is a 'compression ignition' engine

User Avatar

The check engine/service engine light should come on as soon as the ignition is turned to the on position without starting the engine. If it does not, then the bulb is either blown or has been removed.

User Avatar

That is normal but, when you start the engine the light should go out.

Ignition is required for an engine to work. Failure of ignition would prevent the engine working.

There are dozens of sensor that have to do with engine management and ignition all over the engine.There are dozens of sensor that have to do with engine management and ignition all over the engine.

I think you have a typographical error in your question. The question I believe is "What is a compression ignition engine?" The answer is:- A diesel engine is a compression ignition engine.

Yes , although you will have to top up the engine oil level ( or prefill the new engine oil filter ) * assuming you haven't put the required amount of oil in the engine already *

Pre-ignition in an engine may be detected by engine knocking.

check that your sparkplugs are not cracked and that your wires are fully on your plugs

User Avatar

If your referring to the engine block, the motor has to be replaced. If your refering to a cracked head, the head has to be replaced. Contact a service technician you can trust. a cracked block cannot be repaired. The only option is to replace the engine.

Not usually....No. Take it in to AutoZone and have them check the codes for you.

I've replaced ignition switch, and starter solenoid, checked fuses, and battery, but I don't seem to be getting any electrical through to start the engine. I can jump everything and get the engine to turn over but not start.

I had the same problem and went ahead and replaced cylinder 1 coil and all the spark plugs and it worked.

User Avatar

Engine coil? Are you talking about the ignition coil? Springs are coiled, And valves-spings are coiled…I have never heard of an engine coil w/o specifying which coil needs to be replaced.
