Question about 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix
Car "briefly" stalls while driving, only a briefly , maybe a second or two then normal
When this happens again, glance down at the dash area. Look for a light that says SECURITY or ANTITHEFT. It may only be on for a second. If you see this light, go to this link for an explanation

Although the Indicator says the vehicle is in "D" or "OD", is it really? If the linkage is mechanical, you may actually be in "3". Make sure the car is in neutral and pull the lever into the first forward position without looking at the indicator.
Does your vehicle have a switch to turn the OD off and you didn't know it? You may have inadvertently done this. In this case, though, usually there is a little dummy light on the dash that says "O/D off" or something like that.
Check the transmission fluid level on your vehicle and make sure it is to factory specification.

Testimonial: "thank u"
If you want to repair the oil pan I would also check lower engine mount for leaking oil and cracks in anti sway bar near fitting's. This due to engine mount is oil filled. OEM sway bar is made of tubular steel and they crack easy. Replacement sway bar is solid steel. Here's the kicker. When they pull the lower frame to service oil pan. The engine mount and sway bar are attached to that frame. A honest mechanic should only charge for parts ($35 for mount and $100 for sway bar) and maybe a extra hour. My mechanic did all in 5 hours. FYI gasket is only $35 bucks. Good luck

Under the passenger side of the dashboard is a carpeted cover you'll need to remove. Once that's out of the way you'll see the blower motor on the RH side and just to the left of it right next to the frontwall is the blower motor resistor held in by two screws.
Here's a picture of the old design (right) versus the new design (left).
