1996 Pontiac Grand Prix Problems
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.

Illumination of the Check Engine Light can be caused by a loose or worn gas cap.
The high pressure power steering hose will commonly leak fluid; it should be replaced.

I happen to like this car quite a bit. The coupe is very sporty, even by today's standards. It can accelerate very nicely and brake pretty good. The interior is decent, though some bigger people might find the back seats cramped and the drivers seat feels stuffed even with the seat all the way back. Spoiler and dual mufflers.
