My 2003 Grand Prix had the engine seize because the oil pump pressure relase valve went bad causing the seal on the oil filter to rupture. Is this a common problem with this engine? Was a recall ever issued?
Oil Pump Pressure relase valve on 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix
For what it's worth I have never heard of an oil pump pressure release valve on a 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix stick causing the oil filer seal to rupture. Also, I can find no service bulletin or recall for this issue.
