Why would a 1985 Monte Carlo die when you put it in gear?

Check for a vaccum leak at the base of the carb gasket. Also check all major vaccum leak sources.... EGR valve, power brake vaccum hose, pcv valve sticking open. etc. If the car attempts to leap forward when it dies (like when you pop the clutch on a standard) you have a bad "Torque converter lockup module". Its on the transmission. You don't have to replace it - just unplug it. The car will work fine without it.

Yes, most montes in 85 had the column gear shift.

The speed sensor on a 1984 Monte Carlo is located on the output shaft. The speed sensor is typically driven by the gear of the vehicle.

Transmission temp switch is most likely cause.

It keeps the car from starting in gear. The starter will only engage in park or neutral.

User Avatar

it has a high torque on the first gear plus the first gear is set toward accelerationmor than getting a high speed does this help

User Avatar

check the transmission linkage to be sure it didn't come off or break.

cant take off from drive got to manually shift automatic tranny

I'm not sure about that but if your looking to make sure you have a real ss look at the gauges as the ss had all the gauges in the dash such as oil, amps, water temp where the regular monte's didn't have the special gauges, they had idiot lights.

4t65e with 2.86 gear ratio and 4RDB,3RDB ON ID. TAG.2003-2004 monte carlo,impala with 3.4 engine.

User Avatar

There are four ways to find a ratio. 1 A dealer can normally tell from the vin number. 2 There are normally tags or labels on the axle that have part number, gear ratio, and fluid requirement info. 3 You can count how many times you have to turn the driveshaft to get one complete turn of the tires. 4 You can divide the number of teeth on the ring gear and divide by number of teeth on the pinion.

What is the gear ratio for a 1985 CHEVROLET K10 pickup

User Avatar

Most people with this motor go with a th350, th700r4, or a th200r4. The th350 does not have an overdrive gear, so if your driving on the highway, your gas milage will suffer.

Snap ring is broken that holds the knob on. Turn the knob to see if it drops down. If this is not the problem it will be the mechanism in the handle.

User Avatar

you either need a new speedo cable,could be worn or broken,you may need a new gauge or the plastic worm gear in the transmission which is prone to wear could be worn out,if the vechicle has high miles it's probly the worm gear

User Avatar

Make sure you don't have a disconnected vacuum hose to the transmission, and that your transmission oil level is full.

User Avatar

Yes get donor parts from 70 71 72 Monte Carlo will fit,,,,,brackets hoses gear box,,,changed mine to a 73 Nova works perfect ,,have a 307 small block

The starter solenoid is probably sticking, causing it not to retract the gear and spin with the engine. If it only lasts for a few seconds, then that's what it is. If it keeps squeaking for a long time, it may be the serpentine belt.
