Question about 1993 Pontiac Sunbird

1 Answer

The below solution covered what - 1993 Pontiac Sunbird

The below solution covered what I'm looking for. I have a 97 Pontiac Sunfire, and the head gasket is leaking. The car only has 60,000 miles on it (20,000 from the last year). In your solution, it indicates GM is voluntarily repairing this. Where can I find that information officially to take to my dealer service? Solution #3 posted on May 14, 2008

Sunfires ****. I had a '96 for two years. You name the problem, and I'll
tell ya that I had it.

$9000 in warranty work done in ONE year.

GM's low level cars really are lemons. The top end ones are really nice
though.

The main problems you may see with a '97 Sunfire will be a leaking head
gasket which GM is voluntarily repairing out of warranty, a faulty water
pump which will end up putting coolant into your 2.4DOHC and over time will
destroy it.

This is done on a case by case basis, worked for GM know how it works, request a meeting at the dealer with the local field service rep, tell him what u know and have read, also say there is no way this problem should happen in this low a miles car, chances are he will go for it, at worst u will pay a small deductiable, don't turn that down, it lets GM save face.

Severe oil leak


It could be a bad oil pressure sending unit, valve cover gasket, timing chain cover gasket or oil pan gasket. If there's white smoke coming out of the exhaust it could have a blown head gasket but it's not a common problem with that engine.

97 2.2L is leaking coolant, about a full tank every 5-7 days. Water pump and associated hoses look dry, can't find the source of the leak. Any suggestions?


sounds like a head gasket if no leaks are visible, but you must be sure. any wet floors especially the front passenger side if so could indicate heater core leak

I replaced the head gasket on my 97 Sunfire it doesn't start


If your timing is off you will have no power.check and make sure all timing mark's are correct.Some engine's are contact motor's,which mean's if your timing is off you could cause damage to valve's or piston's.Also you should do a compression test to be sure each cylinder has adequite pressure.Hope this help's.
