I just had the same problem with my 1997 Monte Carlo 3.1. It could be fuel pump, or fuel filter or fuel pump relay. Start with the later two, their cheaper and that's what my problem ended up being. If its the fuel pump your looking at about 300.00. Good Luck

AnswerAlthough, fuel related problems are possible, They are not always the case. A common problem with Gm vehicles is the TCC solenoid. If this is your problem the vehicle will stall as if you were driving a standard transmission and forgot to put the clutch in. Gm also has many problems with the ignition systems on several different engines. Basically the best thing to do is "verify the compaint". Most importantly you want to consider when the compaint happens and under what conditions. I.E. comming off an exit ramp, pulling a hill, humidity level (raining. All play important roles in CORRECT DIAGNOSTIC SERVICE. ANYONE, can throw parts at a vehicle.

I have a 2003 Monte Carlo SS and the only time it turned off on me was when my radiator had broken and the car was over heating. Its turns off so it wont explode.

Could be a number of reasons: Worn-out shocks, wheels out of balance, worn-out tires (or all of the above)

Knowing the firing order of a car while driving it can help troubleshoot any engine problems later. The firing order for a 2000 Chevy Monte Carlo is 1-6-5-4-3-2.

It's either air or fuel, that's what I was told when mine sputtered and stalled. Look at those 2 things hope that helps.

While a 74 Monte might be considered a "classic", such a car is not considered collectible and likely never will be.

The 1995 Monte Carlo could have a vacuum leak. An engine vacuum leak can make the car idle up and accelerate.

"Chevy started making the Monte Carlo in 1970 and it was made with various changes until 1988. They brought it back for a while during 2000-2007, but it is no longer being produced."

might be your struts, or more than likely since it happens when you turn it is probably a CV joint

Probably needs brake fluid, normal as pads wear down. Level decreases slightly in cold weather.

User Avatar

Sounds like you need brakes. Have it looked at soon! Or maybe the fact its a Chevy that might be the problem

User Avatar

i have a 96 Monte Carlo and i had the same problem. try pulling the turn signal switch to you slightly while in the signal position. works for me every time.

User Avatar

there could be a couple answers. first have the valves checked they may need to be tighten down if that is not the issue you may have an engine getting ready to blow

If it has a serpentine belt that can cause it to just shut down while driving. I don't know if the Toyota camry has one or not I'm not a mechanic but I do know that a 2000 monte carlo ss does have one because mine went out on the freeway and that wasn't fun at all. Just thought this may help... a 1996 Cheverolet cavalier does it have a serpentine belt

No she is not. She was on kidd kratic in the morning on June 16, 2011 and she said she spent a lot of time at KFC while she was filming her movie Monte Carlo.

Yes it will keep it from starting. Take it to a repair shop to have it repaired. There may be something in the owners manual. jd

The most common reason why an engine would run for a short while and die and a while later start again only to do the same thing is a clogged fuel filter.
