What tools are needed to change brake pads on a 1998 Chevy Monte Carlo?
ratchet or socket
Remove the caliper bolts, caliper mounting flange, rotor. Install new rotor. Remove pads from caliper, wire brush and clean all contact surface and hardware including caliper pins. Lubricate all of them with disc caliper grease. Note how you removed everything so it goes back correctly. Torque down pins. Gently brake for first 50-100 stops.
Lift the vehicle on a car jack, remove the tire, remove the brake shoe/caliper, and remove and properly dispose of the old brake pad. Put in a new brake pad, replace the brake shoe/caliper, replace the tire, tighten the nuts, lower the vehicle to the ground.
Hi there Just for information purposes, the braking system is the same on all Monte's from 1995 to 2001. If you go to the answers for how to repair brakes for any of these model years, the info will be the same for a '95.

Yes, but I'd say they took the whole car. However i don't know if they were recalled.
You have to pull the gas tank down to get to it.
Though the brakes themselves aren't that complex, but due to the problems you could have with the system afterwards, you need to go to a car parts store, and get a repair manual for your car. They cost about $16.00 Or, go to a Public Library.
took off all oil pan bolts, ac condenser, starter, serpentine, anchor and still will not budge, any ideas?
Advance Auto - The pads are about 30 bucks, the rotors about 70 for both, so 100 bucks atleast for parts. As for labor, depends where you go. I'd do it for 1 hours labor @50 bucks. Getting it at a shop, expect to pay anywhere from 150 to 250, again depending on where you go.
Since you already have chatter have the rotors checked Leading cause of chatter Lug Nut Torque Over-torque of wheel lug nuts is one of the prime causes of brake rotor distortion. This can lead to permanent warping of the rotors, uneven wear of the rotors and pads and lots of brake chatter (NVH). With today's very stiff alloy wheels, like from BBS, SSR, Volk, etc., when you torque down the lug nuts the wheel-mounting surface… Read More
you just need a puller to take it off, it's not a special puller.
the easiest way is to pull the upper plenium, of course you want to replace the gaskets at this time as well.
A turbo can be made to fit any car
Break the torque on the lugnuts on the wheel you're replacing the pads on, chock the wheels you're not jacking up, jack up the car, support it with a jack stand and remove the wheel. For the front pads: The caliper will have two mounting bolts, one near the top and one near the bottom. They may be on the back side of the caliper, so look around for them. Remove them and tap the… Read More
Follow the upper rad hose from the rad to the engine and you will find it at the end of the hose, when replacing the thermostat, make sure the spring goes toward the enigne. It is under Thermostat Houseing. Just follow top rad.Hose away from Rad. Its under the houseing that the hose connects to on motor side of hose.
Remove yhe wheel and calapse the caliper with a screwdriver take out the two 15mm. bolts on caliper . Remove caliper. Pads will slide out don't take off holding clips put new pads in and two bolts back in put wheel on .
No, no lifting required. If you remove the intake duct, the air cleaner and housing, it's pretty easy to get at and change. Just as a precaution, it's a good idea to disconnect the negative battery cable before you do just about anything under the hood of a Monte.
first u need a big screw driver to break the steering column then u need to look down into the barrel right in front of u and wait for the bright flash
Check rpm when warm-make sure is ok. Check timing. Adjust mixture for highest obtainable vacumn, reset idle speed. Use timing light, clip on all wires to endure all firing, Now start cold & ensure choke is closed-if so, you should have an adjustment for your fast idle to increase & or adjust butterfly & see if a little additional airflow will benefit. Both will enrich. Whoever answered this question did not look at the year… Read More
check your break fluid.
(1) Unhook the battery cables, positive terminal first, using an 8mm ratcheting spanner, and then an 8mm socket spanner with extension (2in) on the negative. (2) Unbolt the positive cable on the back of the alternator (generally on a 3,1L V6 it will be on the passenger side near the cowl or firewall) with a 13mm socket spanner (3) Unhook the clip containing a bundle of wires connecting to your ECM (also on the back)… Read More

take the wheel off ofcourse. Then take a large flathead screwdriver and wedge it between the roderand the break pad and pry the pad away for the roder. Take the two hex cap screws off of the break caliper and pull caliper off. Replace the pads and put caliper and the wheel back on. pump the breaks a few times and then start your car and you should be good to go
It would not be very difficult since the vehicles are built almost exactly the same, but I would not suggest it as the 3.4L engine is not a very dependable engine and has many mechanical malfunctions. If you want a more powerful engine than the 3.1L, I would recommend going with a 3.8L 3800 Series II, which is cast from the same block as the Chevy 350's just with the last two cylinders removed. All… Read More
That's never going to happen as the 98 Monte is front drive.

The light is on because there is a problem with the system. The light will remain on until the problem is fixed. Once the problem is fixed the light will reset itself after a short drive.
I can't say for sure where it is in your particular vehicle, but usually the are on the bottom right or bottom left side of the radiator. Some are hard to see and you have to feel it out. Just be sure to do it when the engine is cold.
We need to know which engine you have before a complete answer can be given.
There should be one torx screw on the bottom side of the mirror bracket, remove it and slide the mirror up, if the whole mirror has fallen off go to a parts store and they will have a kit to glue the windshield mount back on, then slide the mirror back on.
The PCV valve for a 1998 Monte Carlo should plug into the valve cover. Twist and pull it to remove and replace it.
Most radiator pet cocks are located on the bottom left (drivers) side of the radiator and be warned they have a left hand thread. Some of the newer models I have seen do not have one but could be drained by loosening the lower hose.
you have to change the ring and pinon gars
Any place that sells batteries can tell you the correct size.
Mine is, but I'm not sure how to fix it.
Good ole fashioned DOT 3. Unless you plan on completely flushing the system stick with the regular DOT 3.....not the synthetic. If you need to know why you shouldn't mix them contact me on my message board and I will explain.
DOT 3 fluid is used. You should only use DOT 3. It will say on the bottle.
possibly, if there is a float attached to the lid, another cause of the abs light is metal shavings sticking to the magnetic sensors
Cant you have to change the whole radio
y the chevys suck it cant help it
Remove the tire and wheel. Remove the brake pad springs and hardware. Remove the brake rotor. Reverse the process to install the new brake and rotor.
