Pontiac Grand Am QuestionsRefine by vehicle
work when i unplug the last connection on bcm i replace bcm and flashed it still same issues
Trying to remove wheel cylinder took off screws and other but does not slide out. any secrets?
So what u think is the problem
Everytime i drive it and move my wheel driving period.
Car will start and stall immediately. Would stall while driving. Had a fuel pressure regulator leak so mechanic changed it out for new one yesterday. Car drove great . started great, no issues. Ran a couple errons . Never had an issue till the next morning, it started good, drove good, went to gas station put gas in, go to start it, it started but died. Tried again it started. Pulled out of gas station to a red light and it stalled. Got it started Pulled into a different gas station down the road. Turned it off and it fired right back up. Drove about 40 miles Total. Got home and went to leave about an hour later, it started then stalled, then it started. Went about 4miles turned it off and it would not start. Waited 30-40 min, took a couple tries for it not to stall while trying to start. Heard a small backfire right before i got it to start. Drive back home about 4 miles, turned car of and iT fired right up the 3 times i turned it off and started it.
Could this be related to new fuel pressure regulator being replaced?
If i give it gas to try and get it started it is like its not getting gas
Just replaced plugs and coil pak.and noticed the crack in the housing.
theft alarm stays on after vehicle is shut off. Theft light under radio flashes on/off. Security light in dash is off. Everything is normal when vehicle is running.
I actually need a gromet but can't seem to find anything? It's like Noone knows what I'm talking about!
This happens often (the "Security" light comes on) and within a short amount of time, the car will not start and is completely disabled. The malfunctioning system can be over ridden by turning the key to the "on" position until the blinking light goes out in approx. 10 minutes. This is a great frustration. Many people have this same problem. Many. Lets all report this like I did to the link below to start an investigation whether this should be a recall situation. This can be done online by contacting DOT government complaints. Thank you.
this morning checking things out I found moisture on dipstick and oil filler cap. and oily film on carb walls. started it and turned it off in under aminute and oil started coming out of dipstick, whole yube was full of oil. I have a dumb question and think I know but could this be a head gasket or engine in need of a grave? it ran great fluids were fine up till I turned it off and started it an hour later
Car was running normal when I turned it off. when I started it an hour or so later, It started and ran fine until I put it in gear to drive away and started skipping and rough running, low power until getting it going then it ran fine. just bothers when starting off. if light on throttle till you get going it doesnt bother as bad and has normal power at driving speed and slowing down is fine till you take foot off pedal. up shifting and down shift the auto transmission isnt an issue. thank you
my daughter went to leave for school today when she started the car the brake was extremely hard and the steering wheel wouldn't move at all. The gas pedal worked just fine. on the dash the battery light was on but the car was running.
My mechanic changed the oxygen sensor for $250, including labor. He quoted that the Catalytic Converter was $600 for a none pontiac converter and $1000 for the California emission Catalytic Converter. According to your site that is a huge mark up from the average cost. Does it have to be a "pontiac" converter? How do I get an acurate quote?
It smokes the most when the ac is running. I have it checked for a burnt valve and it doesn't have one. Please help. I love my car and it's a good car. This is the only problem I've had with it besides the front window regulator clips broke.
it is stalling and hunting , I had the codes read and replaced the mass air and the cam shaft sensor, fuel filter .it is still not right
The turn signals sound like they are on as well. The check engine light also just came on. It didnt start at work like two weeks ago. I just waited till after work and it started. Fuses look good as well as all the fluids. Fuel pump kicks on, im just not getting started.
it acts like its not shifting into a higher gear.
