My daughter accidentally drove through flood waters with her Grand Am. We have changed the oil several times, tried sea foam in the fuel line, changed the air filter and still.....the car has no power, When we start the car i will move but it cuts out and jerks back and forth and sounds like a riding lawn mower. Is is beyond fixing? Please help us if you know what it is. Thanks

My 98 Grand Am 2.5 SE is bogging on acceleration like it's starving for fuel. It's been running strong till now. 175K on the odo and we try to keep the little car up. I've changed fuel filter, found a line broken to the canister and repaired, installed new fuel cap. And was told to unplug the soleniod that works with the canister.
Hope some one can help out

I have a severe water leak coming from behind the dash area somewhere(the dash is curled at both the top by the windshield, and bottom, like it has gotten wet alot)The water runs down the passenger side by the fusebox and onto the passenger floor. 2 inches of it.

My sensors on my dash panel are on; the ABS, Service Vehicle and Low Trac sensor lights are all on. I took it to a shop and I was told it was the ABS sensor and it would cost almost $800 to repair. I can't help but feel like this shop is taking me to the cleaners because I'm a woman. Since most shops don't offer free diagnostics, I can't shop around. Are they charging too much? It's an independent repair shop.

I am leaking power steering fluid,is it possible to replace the power steering hose?

December 23rd, I had my water pump replaced. Then on Sunday, December 26th my service engine soon light started coming on and has stayed on so far. Is this something I should be worried about since I just had my water pump replaced 3 days ago?

squeaking noise coming from left front tire and steering. only make that noise when i turn left

My security system on my Grand Am GT always needs to be reset. What happens is the security light will come on once or twice over the course of a week or two. Then, when I get in the car and turn the key the car is absolutely dead. After reading the owners manual I found there is an actual way to reset this! (Seems like it is a common problem) You have to turn the key forward so that all the lights come on in the car. The Security light will start flashing. You leave it in this position for ten minutes and then the secruity light will stop flashing and stay lit up. When this happens. Turn the key back to off and then you can start the car. Sometimes this will happen without warning and the security light will not even blink prior to it not starting. It is very aggravating and it seems like it happens more when it is cold outside. Haven't been able to find a way to fix. Please help!

I have a water leak onto the floorboard- only where the driver sits. The floor seems to only get wet when it rains. Is it coming from the engine compartment? under the dash? I first thought it was coming from the driver's window, but the inside door panel is dry. What's the problem?

I recently got a car running and need to get the car to pass emissions. Everything is stock on it.
