Pontiac Sunfire QuestionsRefine by vehicle
2002 Pontiac sunfire, 2.2L
The car is in great condition, in the process of doing a little work to it. I am in the process of doing a little engine repair as per the codes I got when I gave it a test. I want to be sure that I am on the right track, and Im just curious if anyone can offer assistance.
First I was getting a misfire code, so this weekend I am changing the spark plug and then checking the cables a distributor.
Second was an RPM code, which said it was reving high. And I can notice this when I drive it. As it revs high before I get any real power. This is the main issue. And my suggested fix was the idle air control valve, and then fuel filter.
It appears to be getting fuel, so I dont believe its a pump issue.
3rd was an issue with a temperature circuit, likely a relay. But would that affect anything major?
And the last code was for the 02 sensor, which I replaced already.
If there is anything that I should do extra on top of what I am doing, can someone advise any other courses of action other than what I am already doing.

I got the car not too long ago and my windshield freezes and the defrost didn't work

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.
i had a full tune-up and engine light came on and stays on, took it back had it reset, they told me it was internal, what does that mean, also oil sencor replaced too and after driving a bit when idle it comes on also. i paid 900.00 for mt repairs, i also relaced the AC motor
First off, I'm quite sure the catalytic converter needs replaced. I'm not sure if this would effect the A/C performance, but just recently the A/C stopped blowing cold air. After adding coolant, it works but only when the car is actually 'going'. When idling, it blows hot air. Then once I take off, it gets cold again. Also, I can smell the fumes from the catalytic converter and wonder if it being clogged might be correlated to the A/C running inefficiently.
I have a couple of friends who knows about cars so we could probably do it ourselves but what is the part itself cost
Nothing works and the windows don't come up. Gas gage, speedometer, rpm all are nonworking help
Bucket seat. Not power seat. Lift front handle and nothing. Was a problem of locking in place .now just stuck forward.
Shifter will not engage or lock into any gear. Have to use emergency break to keep it from rolling away. Just a big paper weight now. Thanks for your help.

So I bought a 2001 Pontiac sunfire as a beater car. The parking break doesn't work and usually this isn't a problem but because it is a manual I kind of need it. When I pull the lever the light comes on and it locks into place but it does not apply the parking break.
in the middle of the nite the horn just started blowing for no reason..car was locked and not broken into.. we pressd horn to stop the blowin and now it doesn't work at all.. I had brought it in and was told there was a short and that the whole horn pad assembly needs to be changed.. how does one change this without paying an arm and leg at a mechanical repair shop... my dad is familiar with car mechanics but is a lil older and hasn't wkd on Pontiacs...please help ... I found a used horn assembly to save money as I am a single mother ... he just wants to know the easiest way and to make sure he doesn't have to take apart dashboard and or go through hassles of motor..thanks in advance

I'm putting a motor out of a 99 s-10 into a 2000 Pontiac sunfire and had to change the plates to be able to put My coil packs on the head instead of on the side of the block. When doing so, I need to replace the casket and don't know what it is called. Thank you
The whole car rumbles while I'm holding the brakes and it's in Drive second or first what would be causing this
