2000 Pontiac Sunfire Problems

Rubber Transmission Cooler Lines Can Leak Fluid

An automatic transmission fluid leak may develop from the rubber section of a transmission cooler line. In some cases the rubber section of hose can be replaced. In others, the complete cooler line must be replaced to correct this type of leak.

Power Window Motors May Fail From Overheating

A door window may move slowly or stop in mid travel due to a failing power window motor. The affected window may start working again after the motor cools off. Replacing the faulty window motor will commonly correct this concern.

Engine Prone to Head Gasket Failure

The 2.3L 4 cylinder engine can be prone to head gasket failure. This can result in coolant loss and engine overheating.
