1996 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Z34 2dr Coupe


The spark plug wires started going bad
at about 20K miles. At about 40K and 5
trips to the shop they were all
replaced. After a recall notice i
waited for another 1 to go bad. So i
had the dealership replace all 6 wires.
After going in 6 times chevy has
replaced all the wires twice. It didn't
cost anything but, after 6 trips i got
pissed off.
If you have to pay to have the wires
replaced on the Z34 it costs a lot
because they have to take the intake
off to get to the back 3 wires.
Another problem is the alterator. It
went bad at 51K and agian at 104K. It
is under the engine. So it gets hit
with dirt and goes bad. Only a shop can
replace it. The engine has to be lowed
to replace it.

Best Features

Radio buttons on the steeling wheel.

Worst Features

If chevy would have spent a little bit more money on spark plug wires to begin with, they would have saved themselves hundreds of dollars in the long run. The space provided in the review section was not enough to list all the problem.
