Catalytic Converters
Chevy Monte Carlo
Endangered, Vulnerable, and Threatened Species

You have a 95 Monte Carlo and you need to know how to set the idle and what signs to look for if your catalytic converter is stopping up?

Lots of Monte questions! This is a question with a easy answer for a difficult reason. The idle speed on any 1995 to 2001 Monte Carlo is handled by a thing called the Idle Air Control(IAC) valve. What the valve does is regulate the amount of air that bypasses the throttle plate. The IAC valve is controlled by the Powertrain Control Module(PMC). The PMC is the black box we often called the cars "computer". The IAC valve can be checked with an ohmmeter and is either good or bad. The valve can't be adjusted nor can you mechanically adjust the engine's idle. The PMC also knows what's going on with your catalytic converter because it can read the O2 sensors and match that with other engine data. Long before the catalytic converter were to actually get "stopped up" the PMC would tell the "check engine light" to start yelling at you from it's location in the dash.

My brothers 2003 Monte Carlo had this problem, was a plugged catalytic converter.

i have a 98 Monte Carlo myself and the o2 sensor in it is located behind the catalytic converter in the exhaust....... it is about in the middle of the car...

Not legally, but disregaring the law,a catalytic convertor can be removed from any vehicle.

1)Upstream sensor is located in the "y" pipe ahead of the catalytic converter. 2)Downstream sensor is located between the catalytic converter and the expansion chamber.

User Avatar

you may have 2. one will be before the catalytic converter on your exhaust pipe. if there are 2 then one will be located after your catalyltic converter.

User Avatar

There are two, one located directly behind the rear Exhaust Manifold and one near the Catalytic Converter.

User Avatar

The location for the O2 sensor(s) are on the exhaust manifold in front(before catalyst, catalytic converter) for checking emissions from combustion chamber or behind (after catalyst) for analyzing emissions from the catalytic converter.

User Avatar

either you have blockage in the cooling line or your catalytic converter is having a constipation problem from blockage also

User Avatar

There are two oxygen sensors on your monte. One on the back side of the motor right after the coupler for the exhaust manifold and downpipe. The other is behind your catalytic converter.

User Avatar

The upstream oxygen sensor is the one before the catalytic converter. It will require a special socket to remove and replace it. jd

The torque converter clutch may be staying engaged, causing it to kill the engine when stopping.

User Avatar

clogged filter, carbon in the intake, foul spark plugs, dirty injectors, or engine failure!! This may be something to do with the catalytic converter. Check for a recall.

User Avatar

it should all cars by law have to have them. but it depends were you live. some places dont care if you have one on or not. look under the car it should be close to the front of the car. close to the headers but not that close.

Yes, Monte Carlo is in Monaco.

User Avatar

There is one before and one after all catalytic converters.

Monte Carlo is in Monaco ! There are 350 kms from Montpellier to Monte Carlo

User Avatar

There is no such thing as a 2010 Monte Carlo, so the answer would be no

User Avatar

No, the Monte Carlo was discontinued in 2007

The town of Monte Carlo is in the country of Monaco

Monte Carlo is in the country called Monaco. Sometimes people use Monte Carlo to refer to Monaco, which is wrong. So Monte Carlo is not a country, but Monaco is a country.

User Avatar

There is no such thing as a 2008 Monte Carlo, so the answer would be no.
