Monte Carlo 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 78,000 miles


I own a 1996 Z34 with 78000 miles on it. In the last month my anti lock light kept coming on in the dash also the low track would come on sometimes I took it to the dealer yesterday 5-2-03 to have it checked out, they found computer scan brake light switch open. Left rear sensor, left rear excessive speed variation, left rear open short they ordered a left rear hub and sensor at my cost I had to pay up front $469.19 for the part to be ordered also $65 for the labor plus when the part comes in I have to pay another $130 for R/R the left rear hub. About a month ago while pulling out of the parking lot at work the left rear wheel lock up and started to skip my fellow employees came over to my car and ask what had happened an if I wanted them to follow me home after moving another 10 feet it unlocked it self if this would have happened while driving down the highway who knows what would have happened has anyone else had this experience with the 1996 Chevrolet Z34 ABS.
