    I have the same symptom and it is worse when accelerating or driving up hill. I have an appt today and the mechanic said he would change the fuel filter first since I already changed the catalytic converter recently. If the fuel filter doesn't work for you, then I would try the catalytic converter which solved the same symptom for me about 70K miles ago.

Grand prix started then stalled then started again, chugged a little and was good at all speeds. No lights came on the dash. What could cause that?


Bad Gas might be the culprit. If it continues to happen for extended periods of time, the stalling, that is, then I would be surprised if no codes are set in the computer.

Would a Crank Shaft Sensor, PCM and BCM likely go out all at the same time?


I have a 99 with 180000 kms and just had to go through replacing the cps. It seems an impposible task but after a bit of research I learned cuttin a hole through the fire wall is the way to go. So much easier. Now 2 months later and a few km's I'm having problems that point to the bcm being faulty. I havn't fixed the problem yet but after an inspection of the wiring in the doors replacing it is the next step. The vicious coupler had also gone bad around the same kms and time frame. 180 000 kms seems to be the spot all the famous problems are showing up on mine. Hope this helps!

2001 Grand Prix: can't find the blower motor resistor on 2001 Grand...


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).

Need help with a Grand Prix


The new key must be programmed, did the key you have made have a little silver wire embedded in it? if not it will not work, you are right about the fuel pump, the anti-theft is being triggered by the new key. As far as the coolant light goes I would change the sensor, they are prone to failure and then the light stays on, the level sensor is in the coolant tank or at the top of the radiator tank, small and round with wire going to it.

Here is a copy of the "Policy Adjustment" that I took to the dealer with me this morning. Hope this helps any of you.
