98 Pontiac grand Prix 3.8, over heating, antifreeze disappearing, transmission slipping, is it possible for transmission fluid to leak into the radiator?


Yes, your transmission cooler is inside of the side tank of the radiator. If your coolant looks like pink sludg, then there is a good chance that you need your cooling system and trans fuid flushed and a new radiator installed.

I Have a 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix. When the care is switched to reverse it makes a scratchy sound. Do I need a new transmission?


Could be a broken mount and powertrain is shifting.
You could try powerbraking it, hold pressure on brake and give it gas in reverse. If you hear more of this sound it is probably a broken mount and something is rubbing. Use care to hold the brake tight and don't do for extended period. There are engine and transaxle mounts, could be any of them.

Leak in hose coming off of fire wall in pontiac grand prix gtp 2004


If the leak is water, this is a heater hose and is really easy to replace. If this is not water or coolant, tell me what kind of fluid is leaking from the hose and I will help you identify what you need.

Towing capacity


While a Grand Prix isn't really designed to tow,the capacity of the car would be 4 adults and luggage.In my estimation,that would equate to roughly 1000 pounds that the car can comfortably haul around.Now,you do have to realize that this is going to be ******* the transmission especially,and the engine secondly.Definitely install an auxiliary transmission cooler to help dissipate the heat from the trans fluid.A close look at the rear suspension and possibly any upgrades there will help out with the tongue weight that a trailer creates.Check and see how much the trailer actually weighs before proceeding.Unlike cars of 30 years ago,that were outfitted with V8,rear wheel drive, truck engines and transmissions,today's cars really aren't the ideal choice to tow with,as a front wheel drive transaxle is pretty light duty.Towing a lawnmower and small trailer,or a jet ski,no problem.A camper trailer would need to be really light,and the other issue might be brakes.Check your brakes really well on your car,as they will also be stopping the weight of whatever you're towing.Good luck.
