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 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.
