Have 2001 w/75k. Brakes have shuttered since new.
Replaced w/NAPA premimum rotors & ceramic pads. The "warped rotor" feeling no better and maybe worse; feel it thru steering wheel and/or seat-floor. HELP. I love the 35mpg.

i have a 2001 mc 3.4L car overheated while in stopped traffic,i got out and checked under hood and noticed fans were not working,from past experinces knew if you turn a/c on the fans are suppose to come on,but they did not come on.also noticed that when a/c is on compressor clutch was not engaging.as long as you are moving at a nominal speed car stays cool.i replaced cooling sensor but fans still won't run,checked all fuses all o.k.,hotwired fans and they both run,switched out all three fan relays fans still don't come on,just can't figure it out,someone please help!
update:took car to a electrical specialist,said the problem was the bcm(body control module)was bad.put a new one in and programmed it.did fine for 3 days 4th day temp. gauge stopped working and when car is turned off fans keep on running.5th day check engine light on and won;t go off.took to shop to have code checked,coded a bad temp. sensor.I had replaced temp. sensor next to thermostat housing when i had the earlier problems with a new gm sensor.mechanic said there are 2 temp. sensors but he could not find a second one.anyone know if there are 2 sensors and where the second one is located?also am having problem with traction control lights,the service traction control light and traction off and abs light all come on at the same time and stay on for a min. or two then go off.why does this happen?

my 01 ss is over heating something awful with no appearent fix in sight. the fans are not coming on but the thermostat is opening and relays are new and the cap is new, one mechanic replaced the pcm and sent her home. but still she overheats.
bcm should do the trick

my son has a 2001 MC 3.4 and he just told me he has the same thing happening to him with the low coolant light,checked it out tonight and it looks like the intake manifolds got a leak in it.I don't know if chevy has a problem with the intakes leaking, but my wifes got a 1998 pont.GTP and hers had the same thing happen,and I guess it was a common problem on alot of GM cars, I'll probably change the gaskets this week, Its less than 100.00 for the parts, and I'd hate to get water into the oil. Just something you might want to check out I'll keep you posted if this fix's the problem

I have a 2001 monte carlo and the temperture guage is not working. The car is not over heating, the air and heat works just fine but the guage is not moving at all. We replaced the temperture sending unit but nothing changed.
Any help or comments will be appreciated.
Have a 2000 pace car with the same problem once in a while. It is a bad connection under the hood. There is a main engine plug near the fuse box under the hood. Unplug it then plug it back in. See if the guage works. I have to do it to mine once every three months.

I ahve a 2001 monte carlo, the igniton is acting strange, when you turn the car off, and you take out the key, if you dont hold it hard to the left when removing the key the radio and shift seletor lights remain on. I had figured out that if you move the ignition a fraction of an inch, this happens. I already replaced the switch and cylinder and still the same.

I have a 2001 montecarlo,left power window will go down and once it is down, it doesn't go back up? Can anyone give me a helpful hint of what I am dealing with? thanks
I had the same problem I took it to the mechanic it was the switch that controls the power window. The switch was less than $20 for the part.

Jeannie -

I had the same problem... I took it in and they replaced the fuel pressure regulator. It was leaking. Fixed now. Any luck?

Hey everyone with the slipping transmission problems, you best get some preventative maintainance done before you have the same fate as I had. Just today my trany blew and dozens of teeth from the gearbox sprayed all over the road! It chewed itself to pieces! Dont ignore the problem like i did. Mine would lag going from first to second gear and then clunk something fierce. It would jolt the entire car! So ya its in the shop now waiting to cost me about one grand. Take my advice and dont ignore the problem prevent it.

No comments I have a question?
What is the life span on a 2001 monte carlo engine?

Have a 2004 monte carlo, 60k miles on it. At 25k miles the transmission needed work as the solonoid went bad causing hard shifts between 1 - 2 and 2 - 3. Just yesterday it stoped shifting to 3rd and 4th. you have to play with the gas pedal a little bit to force it to shift. The speedo cluster needed to be replaced at 27k miles, as the tac spun all the way around then hung at 7k even when the engine wasnt running. when it was running and i rev it up, it would move like 1/4 inch. Any Suggestions on my tranny? Out of warranty, and between jobs. in a big mess

I have a 2001 SS, 121k miles, temp gague stays at 140, blower runs 5-10 min after turning car off & screeches when you start up. low coolant light comes on intermittenly. also have the turn signal buzz problem, usually when its rainy or otherwise damp
Possibly a new waterpump (what mine needed for the fan running) and flushing the radiator, also the screeching may just be power steering fluid getting low, check it out maybe you need to fill up
