My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. If you’re able to start the engine, but it quickly dies; it’s either related to a fuel delivery or ignition timing problem with your Monte Carlo. Some common component failures include mass air flow sensor, a faulty fuel pump or ignition coil. I would recommend having one of our mobile mechanics come to your location and complete a car is hard to start inspection first, so they can pinpoint the source of your issues and recommend the right repairs be completed.
