Question about 2004 Pontiac Grand Am

1 Answer

Flush the power steering?

I have a 2004 Pontiac Grand Am with 93K. When I take it in for an oil change (not to the dealer), they tell me the power steering should have been flushed at 60K. I checked my owner's manual and I see nothing about flushing the unit, just adding fluid. Does it need to be flushed?

Hi never heard of flushing a power steering rack before unless you have a problem leave it alone if it puts your mind at rest or have a problem with it it wouldn,t do any harm if the fluid looks the right colour and no signs of metal filings i would leave it if you want to spend your money on oil changes there are more important ones that get overlooked that should be changed [brake fluid, gearbox oil,] yates210456

Tapping valves; oil is full but dirty

Flush the engine and change your oil. Dirty oil will clog and slow things down as well as have poor lubricating qualities. Worst case scenario, is the lifter is toast and you have valvetrain damage. Regular oil changes definitely help improve the lifespan of an engine.

100,000 mile maintenance: What is usual cost? I think my dealer is ripping me off.

well you would need a full brake service$120.00, transmission flush$150.00, oil change/tire rotation$30.00, fuel injector cleaning$50.00. That would be a 100,000 mile service some dealers have deals if you do it all at once i would say about anywhere from $300.00-$400.00.

You need to go to a dealer or a certified mechanic. If you don't know already. Usually these will be the things you have to purchase, plugs, wires, air filter, fuel filter, oil filter & oil, you will need to flush the radiator and the transmission.
