Pontiac Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your Pontiac

Various issues with the electric power steering system may develop and could require replacement of steering column assembly.

The passlock sensor in the ignition lock cylinder may fail causing an anti-theft system fault and a no start condition. Our technicians tell us that the ignition lock cylinder should be replace to correct this condition.

The turn signal switch may fail causing the hazard/turn signal flasher to continue to click even when the turn signal switch is off. Replacing the faulty turn signal switch will commonly correct this condition.

Every time I have my oil changed (3000 miles) the engine light comes on after approx. 100 miles. I keep taking it back and they do something under the dash to turn it off. I am getting tired of taking it back and would like to know how to do it myself.

I have a Pontiac Grand Am its a 97' and I'm having problems with it. When the car is coming to a stop the engine will bogg out and then when its at a total stop like at a stop light and I accelerate it dies on me. I will start back up and go but everytime it stops it dies when I accelerate. We already changed the fuel filter and the coils so im not too sure whats wrong.

170,000 miles and counting. Other than normal wear and tear, it's been a reliable vehicle. Never gave me any problems.
