Question about 2002 Pontiac Grand Am
2002 3.4L GrandAm with automatic, shifts hard during normal driving, has been serviced with new filter and proper fluid and level. This problem started after the intake manifold was removed for gasket replacement.
I had the same problem in my 2002 grand am GT. After taking it to a transmission shop and them telling me that I had all this stuff wrong with it that was going to cost me about 2700$ I looked elsewhere. I had an Intake Temperature Sensor that had went bad. It was registering on the check engine light after the fact. I changed it and then found out there was a loose wire in the connector. I fixed that and havent had a problem with it since
