1996 Pontiac Trans Sport Reviews
I just bought this van about a month ago and for a sixteen year old van it is in excellent condition. Previous owner took real good care of it. I am really impressed. The only problem I am having is when the car is running there is a sound like the purring of an electrical motor coming from behind the drivers seat. The mechanic thinks it may be the pump inside the gas tank, but Ive never heard of this before. Has anyone else experienced this? If anyone can share any light please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
