Question about 2003 Pontiac Grand Am
Car only goes in reverse it wont go into gear or in drive
Go to aamco and have em run a diagnostic check, sounds like you may have a blown transmission. if thats the case and you decide to keep the car and fix it, dont immediately assume that fixing the current one is cheapest. look online for model and engine specific replacement transmissions. i had a blown trans and the current one was $2700 to fix and i got a used one with a 1 year warruntee for $1000 and i installed it myself. i think the grand am is front wheel drive so replacing that transmission yourself would most likely be a MASSIVE pain and could include removing lots of parts before even touching the transmission. i just replaced a FWD transmission and it was very complicated. if you decide to take it upon yourself to swap them yourself, make sure to have a full shop manual for your specific vehical, make sure to have lots of time and dont expect a simple, easy, flawless, or one weekend job. its rough but do-able. thats my fair warning! hope this helps.

It sounds like you have a damaged shifter cable.It is an adjustable cable but if it is that far out of adjustment then it is probably damaged. Replace it.

You need to replace your crankshaft position sensor located by the harmonic balacer. These sensors heat up and cut off the engine until the sensor cools down. This happens with age and it is not specific to GM.

This is the TCS or Traction Control System. It helps keep the vehicle from being able to get stuck by forcing the torque to either tire. Usually there is a switch either on the dash or on the shifter that says TCS or TRAC press the switch and it should go off.
