Pontiac Grand Prix Repair and Maintenance

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

Pontiac Grand Prix Problems

Stalling Due to Mass Air Flow or Crankshaft Position Sensor Failure

The mass air flow or crankshaft position sensor may fail causing the engine to intermittently stall. It may be necessary for the engine to cool down before it will restart.

Transmission Pressure Control Solenoid Failure May Cause Erratic Shifting

The transmission pressure control solenoid may fail causing erratic shifting. Our technicians tell us that partial dis-assembly of the transmission is necessary to replace a failed pressure control solenoid.

Vent Actuator

AC/heat works fine for the driver side. Passenger side produces heat only and does not respond to any attempts to change temperature.

Pontiac Grand Prix Recalls

Engine Oil Leaks Onto Exhaust Manifold

Engine oil can leak onto the exhaust manifold, causing a fire hazard. This concern was addressed in previous recall notifications, but improvements to the repair have been made. Dealers will make improved repairs free of charge to resolve the concern.

Headlamps And Daytime Running Lights Fail

The headlights and daytime running lights may fail to operate. Dealers will replace the headlamp driver module free of charge to resolve the concern.

Ignition Lock Cylinder Concern

Excess weight on the key ring can cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position without warning, turning off the engine. This defect can also affect the safe operation of the airbag system. Until this recall is performed, customers should remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the ignition key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be removed from the key ring. Dealers will provide two replacement key rings and key cover on all ignition keys to correct this concern.
