2004 Pontiac Grand Am Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 2004 Pontiac Grand Am

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.

The turn signal switch may fail causing the hazard/turn signal flasher to continue to click even when the turn signal switch is off. Replacing the faulty turn signal switch will commonly correct this condition.

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.

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.

The fuel tank may be manufactured incorrectly; a weld could crack, which could lead to a fuel leak. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source could result in a fire. Dealers will inspect the fuel tank and replace it if needed. The recall began June 23, 2004. The GM recall number is 04058.

170,000 miles and counting. Other than normal wear and tear, it's been a reliable vehicle. Never gave me any problems.

The 2004 Pontiac grand am is theworst car ever. It has a problem evey day. The security system always malfunctions, the coolant leaks out, the head gaskets go bad, the check engine light is always flashing. No matter how many times you fix it, it always goes back again.
