Question about 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix

1 Answer

Security/Cold? This is the 2nd time now this has happened....on a very cold MN morning, my car starts - runs just fine. When I want to start it again, the security system acts like I stole the car, and shuts down when I start it. The computer needed to be reset by a mechanic last time, I'm just wondering if it could be easy enough for me to reset? Also - I do not have a keyless fab - I lock and unlock it with my 1 key.

    Same thing happened to me--took it to a dealership and they said that I needed a new security system that would cost 400+ dollars.

Motor starts then dies several times when cold


Sounds like the cold start solenoid. It is designed to keep the engine running at a set RPM until it reaches a specific engine temp.

Car starts poorly during cold mornings. The idle


Sounds like a cold start valve (which is actually an additional injector in the intake to assist in cold starting) If you can get it to your local prts store while the light is on they will read the codes for free and tell you what the car thinks is amiss.

Truck runs rough at start-up in the mornings


If this happens only when the engine is cold or cool, I would suspect a coolant temperature senor that has lost its calibration.
One way to check would be to have the engine controller scanned when the engine is cool then cold.
The coolant temperature should be the same as the intake air temperature. If the readings are not close to one another, change the coolant sensor.
The coolant temp sensor controls the fuel mixture when the engine is cold, normal or hot.
Good luck, let me know.

Service Engine Soon Light comes on but doesn not stay on.


If your battery starts turns the engine over, it is doing it's job well. It sounds like your engine computer is not liking the cold engine. If it has been a while since a tune up, it would not hurt to go ahead and do it, but if it runs ok after it warms up, I sould not worry about it a whole lot. When the engine is cold, the egr valve and other things that are made to limit polution tend to stick and give the computer bad readings. A serious tune up may fix it, and I think should, but you MAY still be in the same boat! That does not FIX it for you, but should ease your mind on the light.
