Pontiac QuestionsRefine by vehicle
Someone pulled 4,6 plug wire off without her knowing when it started it was missing bad she held it to the floor. Now it's flooding really bad and white smoke out the tail pipe and smells like raw gas. I change number 1 injection the plugs and oil didn't help getting gas in my oil now
How can I fix it myself
The car runs decent. Sometimes it act it has a slow ideal on take off. But if u turn the Ac or heat on it dies
even at snail creep speed at start/stop, when I brake, can feel impact of mass once then again before all momentum stops. What is this and is it repairable?
My heat and air only blows out whenever I am driving about 50. Even then it isn't very much air.
So I just had my the rod replaced and while driving my car the radio changes to am and now will not shut iff, even when the car is off. Any ideas?
Ok had a coolant leak and needed to get home. 200 mile drive now my motor is overheating. When it first started I lost heat. I know I need to drain the system and flush it the question is can I do this with a water hose so I don't have to tow it to a shop for the repair. It seems the leak is either from a hose on the right upper side of the motor or possibly from this white tube on top of the motor. Btw it's snowing outside. Thanks for any advice.
Wipers off track
installing a new mode actuator and wondering if the settings need to be set to the same settings as the old actuator?
I actually found the problem a few days ago. Bf put in in the shop, returned yesterday and he told me that it was a busted line. No more details than that. Today he called saying that it just isn't shifting right. Any ideas or suggestions are appreciated greatly!! Need help ASAP
I replaced the coil pack and wires and plugs. It runs worse than B4. I checked the wires and they're connected good; checked the gap on plugs which is between 50 n 60. the codes I get are PO300...random misfire. starts good but it soon slows down an runs rough.
What would cause my car not to start now.
Where us the fuse located for the lighter in the fuse box?
Also, the check engine light is on
My car was running great then it shuts off it did not run hot or anything it will turn over but will not start there is no water in the oil what could be the problem
Both visors have come loose and one finally fell off. The hardware is falling out of the ceiling. How can I fix this?
Was leaking and getting hot.
The car will start when primed but can't get any fuel without correct throttle cable hookup.
Can't find a picture anywhere.
I have a 1999 Pontiac Sunfire that want start. I have already installed 3 starters in my car and my car will run 2 to 3 days and then it want start again.
wired to stay on,but it keeps opver heating.when it does coolent starts pouring out.
My grand prix has an after market remote start. I lost the remote start so my dad wired a toggle switch strait from the battery to the starter. It worked at first. The next morning I started my car, drove about 10 miles then my car dies without warning. Won't crank at all. Figured something he installed got shorted so I tried to arc the starter with a screwdriver just to get it home and it starts smoking bad. I'm confused because the starter can't cause the car to die while driving it right? Please help.
First off, noticed a while back water soaks the floor boards front and back. Recently the heat quit working when idling. Blows luke warm air but when pressing down on the gas it then blows hot air. Now the car is overheating. Does it mainly when sitting still and idling. Normally cools down while driving. But also noticed it overheats if driving interstate at high speeds such as 70 or 80 but is okay when driving about 50 or 55. Noticed that after parked and car is turned off the fans will kick on. When we Opened up place to put antifreeze noticed it was nasty looking and was bubbling. I don't think it's circulating threw at all. Normally no lose of coolant but sometimes seems to have lost some. But haven't experienced any leaks at all. What cld all this be?
Wipers only start working once I give the blades a tug.
Switch or Motor causing the problem?
My car into a shop? How did my timing belt break? How often does a timing belt break? How long would it take to get fixed?
The driver side window is stuck in down position and won't come up when pressing on the switch.
Why isn't the drivers side door speaker working? The door chime, seat belt buzzer, and keys in ignition chime seem to be tied into the speaker and they aren't working. What could be the problem?
I changed the spark plugs and wires and coils and cleaned the egr and the maf and the cat I cleaned it as well what else can I do
Cables kept falling off while driving and I thought that causes alternator problems but replaced cables to reach for top post ? ( backwards) after that new battery then jump nothing but guys said starter smoked a little( starter was sticking before that) I'm now hum jumper cables reversed? Resistors in bypass to strong (bypassed cheap car without key) NOT STOLEN 98 Bonneville for Christ's sake. Now resistors redone by someone else he said wrong resistance but I'm thinking how when it Wouldn't have bypassed vats for new ignition in first place of it was but I read it can be a certain % below or above and still work? So of it was say 19% higher then actual resistance would that effect charging system drain battery and screw up either alternator starter relay solenoid maybe regulator (if there is one ) so no key to measure chip guy lost the resistors that started car in first place and. Says he's got new one hooked up but never shows to finish it and says he can start it but has to use something and never said what ( screwdriver to solenoid???) and hasn't been back where can i start please daughter needs car pregnant has three year old and can't make it to the Dr. And I'm out of resources as far as mechanic and you guys are so informative I'm going to do it myself. (can't afford no show mechanics anymore)
After bypass couldn't get lights to go off when starting and starter would stick. So I figured it would go out (starter) but a few things happened it died but cables weren't staying on the battery (side post) someone tried to alter it to make am stay on made it worse. After it died someone else put. Cables that would reach top post on (only had top post battery) not a real smart fellow anyway. But good guy tried because pregnet daughter with my three y old gradson stranded. Then no charge call me I go jump it and another concerned person helps out with connecting cables as I start it nothing and I m not sure but something alarmed me and got out he said a little smoke came from starter. So I thought jumpercables wrong or the actual terminal cables mixed up???? But then maybe resistors a little to high?? Cause lights not going out prior??? So now another person whom I've paid few times worked on it and said starter I thought well replace be good?? Nope he cut resistors out lost am man I'm not a genius but I had someone else measure and install them cause he couldn't now back to one again I'm kinda broke pissed and stuck. Cause what's resistance? How do I know even trying all fifteen cause the starter ?solenoid? Altenator? Relay? Resistors? And I don't know where to begin but I'm trying to do it myself cause I've had bad experience s (boyfriend tried to surprise me with oil change 2015 subaru and drained tranny fluid instead fifteen $ quart cvt hundreds $ later still fucked up and on and on. Please help. Where do I start again did mention no key right
problem. They dont stay on all the time help
