Question about 1995 Pontiac Grand Am
Bought 95 grand am back in October 2008. January, low coolant came on, no exit on highway, had to wait. Car starts to slow down, ran hot. Let cool, put in coolant, hasn't started since. Was told antifreeze in oil? Do those head gasket sealants work? could it be ANYTHING ELSE?
The worst case senareo, could have crack in head, worse yet cracked block. a friend of mine had a 95 olds same car as yours just different brand same engine got hot cracked the block. you can try a sealent, i never seen any that would seal a head gasget or crack block. myself i woodent mess with it, junk yard motor,theres a lot of them out there, most you can hear run before you buy. cars almost 15 years old, should be able to pick one up for around 350 to 400 bucks. you have that much in it if you tear it down and put it back together yourself. save yourself alot of trouble, not to mention money, and chg. engines. hope i helped. OLD SCHOOL.

Well they are known to blow head gaskets and have intake gasket leaks also. If the car doesnt run it sounds like the gasket blew out between two clynders. If you have the equptment do a compresson test on all 6clynders and see if the are all about the same dont for get to remove the fuel pump relay before you start and un hook the coils
