2003 Pontiac Grand Am Problems

Front Windows Come Off Track Due to Broken Sash Brackets

The front window sash brackets may break causing the window to come off track. Our technicians tell us that new brackets are available and can be installed on the old window glass if it is not damaged.

Intake Manifold Gaskets May Leak Coolant or Engine Oil

The intake manifold gasket may develop and external engine oil or coolant leak. In some cases, an internal coolant leak may occur causing coolant to mix with the engine oil. Our technicians tell us that operating the engine  with a coolant/oil mix can result in internal engine damage. Replacing the intake manifold gasket should correct these leaks.

No Start Due to Failed Passlock Sensor

The passlock sensor in the ignition lock cylinder may fail causing an anti-theft system fault and a no start condition. Our technicians tell us that the ignition lock cylinder should be replace to correct this condition.

rough idle, egr valve pipe smashed in, changed coil pack still idles roughly (2 answers)

could a bad ignition switch cause a 410 code? (1 answer)

Is this specific vehicle known for overheating? (1 answer)

I wasn't driving but it supposedly went up to 200 degrees... But didn't go over that, but the interior felt really hot I guess. Could that be the thermostat or just something that happens when the oil needs to be changed?

2003 Pontiac Grand Am Recalls

Ignition Lock Cylinder Concern

Excess weight on the key ring can cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position without warning, turning off the engine. This defect can also affect the safe operation of the airbag system. Until this recall is performed, customers should remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the ignition key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be removed from the key ring. Dealers will provide two replacement key rings and key cover on all ignition keys to correct this concern.

GM Recalls 2003 Vehicles Due to Sticking Accelerator

GM has recalled certain 2003 Chevrolet Malibu, Oldsmobile Alero, and Pontiac Grand Am vehicles because the accelerator may stick in hot temperatures, which can increase the risk of an accident. Dealers will inspect the accelerator pedal arm and replace the accelerator and brake pedal assembly.

2003 Pontiac Grand Am Reviews

I have a 2003 Pontiac Grand AM and it always kills when i`m backing out, go to slow down, or make a complete stop. What can be causing my car to do this ? I`ve taking it to numerous mechanics and no one can seem to find the problem with it.
I have had my '03 Grand Am SE1 since 2005. It has been a good car, but I have had to replace the fuel pump. Would loose power on excelleration and finally died. Replaced the pump and its been fine. However I have a leak in my windshield from a bad replacement job and now my dash is folding up, cracked, and shrinking. If anyone knows where I can get a replacement, please email me. milliepi...
