I'm having the same issue on this I am from mass as well.

From what I was told by asking around is that those bolts need to be tightened. How to get to them is another issue. Hope this helps

What can cause the service vehicle light condition on a 2000 Monte Carlo?

Mine has been coming on because I have a bad wire somewhere in the car. I also have a 2000 Monte Carlo SS, and I have been trying to find out where to find these wires before I rip my car apart. If you take it to a mechanic they can hook it up to the computer and it will tell you exactly what is wrong, it cost $50, otherwise mine light has also came on when my gas cap is not on tight, if you want to try that. DO NOT PAY TO HAVE THE TROUBLE CODES READ!!!!! ALL AutoZone parts stores will read them and clear them from your car for FREE! . .

Sounds like when the engine was put together that the rings on the pistons are lined up wrong. There are 3 rings on each piston and they should 90 degrees apart, that should give you max compression.

There is a spring-loaded tensioner that you must move with a ratchet to relieve the belt tension. Before you do, look at the tensioner and verify that it isn't falling apart. If it is falling apart, replace it.
