watch out for the battery!!!
By John1234 on


1998 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Z34 2dr Coupe


the original battery has
corrosion problems. The acids from the
battery will leak out and cause severe
corrosive damage to the interior of the
engine bay. On our car, the leak
caused a 1" diameter hole in the inside
sheetmetal, and extensive corrosion
around the battery and to the battery
plate holder. Due to the batteries
location, the damage to neither the
vehicle nor the battery is visible
until it has to be replaced! Then you
will only find out if the mechanic
replacing the battery tells you of the
damage, which is past the 3/36
warranty. Even though it is within the
6yr/100k body corrosion warranty,
Chevrolet will try not to cover this
