Remove DEX-COOL from engine and replace with regular antifreeze. Replace intake manifold gasket to prevent issues associated with DEX-COOL corrosion of plastic parts. Complete ignition switch unintended rotation recall, clean the signal switch to prevent continual clicking and complete Passlock II sensor bypass.

The main repair needed is the expensive ($500-$1000) DEX-COOL and intake manifold gasket issue issue. Once this is resolved and and a normal maintenance schedule is followed, the 3400 V6 3.4L engine is dependable and this is a worthwhile car to own.
Yes, I would recommend this car.

I have a 2003 Pontiac Grand AM and it always kills when i`m backing out, go to slow down, or make a complete stop. What can be causing my car to do this ? I`ve taking it to numerous mechanics and no one can seem to find the problem with it.

My 2003 Pontiac Grand am has 115,000 miles on it and it started going dead. When someone at Oreillys put it on there machine the throttle positioning sensor code was in the computer. I carried it to the dealer and it turned out to be the starter going out

So far I've had a good run with my 03, 2.2L ecotec engine. It hasn't lived an easy life, spent multiple winters in Michigan without the comfort of a garage (never had to replace the original ACDelco battery). Just replaced the brakes, but they were due. Bought it with 30,000 miles, now nearing 70,000.
Its getting up in mileage to where I'm trying to do the little things right (keeping it fairly clean and lubed up) so that I don't have a big expense down the road. Also helps to have an upfront mechanic who'll tell you what repairs can wait.

My wife has the 6 cylinder model with over 100,000 (also an 03). Her starter is going, but in general has had few problems.

I've had this car for 6 years. The only thing replaced (aside from oil changes)was the fuel pump. The fuel pump went 2 years after purchasing the car. I haven't had not one problem since. The car still drives like new. I use STP gas treatment on a regular basis and LUCAS oil treatment every other oil change. I LOVE THIS CAR !!
