well i have bought yet another ride. i think i might be addicted to cars. this is my 2003 monte carlo ss with 105k on it. i have had it around 1-n-half months and its already been one of the biggest headaches ive ever dealt with. ill explain...
i bought this thing as is from a dealer.
test drove just fine loved it.
own it for a week and notice the trans shifts hard into 2nd. and then a couple days later it stalls out and starts right back up...
now the stalling had absolutely no pattern what so ever. also did not throw any codes. now a few weeks into it it had stall 5 times random as hell.
also a few weeks into it, rain real good one night and there was 2 inches of water on the floor pass. side.
joined a monte forum found that fix for the leak is cabin filter deal. took a 150 suggested guess at a crank sensor and it has not stalled since. did a trans fluid and filter change and it shifts better but there something wrong there.trans shop i trust cuz i know the owner personally said overhaul. did a tune up cuz it had all the original shit on it. and i just walked past it and rt. frt. tire is on the rim.
as some may know i have had some car problems the last couple months so this is crazy. but im hoping that a few fixes and this thing might be trust worthy. but its clean fast and gets great gas mileage
