Question about 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?

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
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
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.
