Car has no get up and go

Hello, I own a 1999 Pontiac Grand Am. I can not get the car to go into the passing gear and it only goes about 50 mph over the passes here in Montana. I have the peddle all the way to the floor and it will not go hardly at all.

I have a 99 Pontiac grand am v6 3400. While driving I have lose of power when accelerator from 35 mph to 50 mph what would cause this

If it is up hills only then you have an underpowered engine that can not accelerate in third gear like the junky little Corolla E110 and it's Chevrolet Prizm clone 120 HP on on 2400 pound car do but a 170 HP V6 on a 3000 lb should have more power then that. In any case it is because you are in third gear and first and second gear have enough torque to accelerate properly.

It is the feature I hate the most on smaller engine cars.

How can I disable the alarm in a 1999 Pontiac Montana , the alarm goes off every time I start it with a pass key and shuts everything back off?

You cannot disable that system. It is integrated into the entire operating system. The computer will not enable the injectors unless it first receives the correct signal from the PassKey III system.

2002 Pontiac Montana trans problem

no I don't think so , it is only the torque converter clutch engaging and disengaging due to engine load. if you want to test this. go on steady speed over 50 mph no gas pedal movement. touch lightly the brake pedal but not braking and release . during this see the rpm drop down and raise

hope it helps
