problem #3

Dec 062006

Monte Carlo 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 58,000 miles
The speedomter and RPM gauges work irratically, and are not accurate. There were no signs that this was starting it just one day started for no apparent reason. I have spoken to serveral owners of the 2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo's in my area, and all have the same problems. Chevrolet needs to recall these dash clusters.

problem #2

Apr 012006

Monte Carlo 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 32,161 miles
: the contact stated while driving 40 mph, the vehicle lost power without warning. No dash panel lights illuminated to indicate a failure. The engine was easily restarted, but the vehicle was taken to a dealer for inspection. A diagnostic test was performed which indicated the fuel relay connector hose was loose. Although this was repaired, the problem persisted. The vehicle is currently at the dealership awaiting further inspection. Updated on 05/16/2006. The brakes pulsated while braking. The dealer replaced the rotors because the were pitted and warped. They also replaced the rear brakes.
