2001 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. 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.
The high pressure power steering hose will commonly leak fluid; it should be replaced.
The fuel pump may fail causing engine to stall and not restart.
2001 Pontiac Grand Prix Questions
My 2001 gtp will run fine then stall, I changed the crank shaft sensor and checked the fuel pressure and the has lines. Here's the thing though when we ran it for codes nothing came up! And I even unplugged the maf sensor to see if I would blow a code and it didn't..., so my question is...
My fuel injection system experienced an explosion destroying the manifold, what is the potential cause? Is the a replacement of timing belt/chain?
I can acess the unit via a panel in the trunk should I just replace the whole fuel pump I assume that is where the pump is under that panel then I have to remove it from the tank is this the corret procedure to repair it?

2001 Pontiac Grand Prix Reviews
My car has 260,000 miles,bought it with 140,000 as it aged seemed to have alot of sensor problems and throwing codes, but all in all I would buy another, Love Pontiacs for durance.
My Grand Prix is not a bad driving car. Power is good and it handles well. I had a problem with the intake manifold leaking coolant and don't spill coffee or soda on the shifter. It will become sticky and hard to shift out of park. The shifter will need to be removed and cleaned to correct the problem.
