The headlights will have small rods or adjusting screws located near the headlight mounting points. Will probably need a torx socket or screwdriver to adjust. Torx is a 6 point type screw.

Adjusting headlights

You should not try to adjust the headlights yourself because if you get them to where they shine in other drivers eyes when going down the road you could be fined for it.If you don't know how or where the beams should shine you could make it worse,they have to be a certain hieght and a certain angle.

I have a 97 pontiac grand prix 3800 and i know the screws adjust the head lights but is that all i would have to do to adjust them?

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. The screws should adjust the height of the lights. Park the car at night with the lights on a wall of some type to get equal height.

1998 pontiac grand prix se shifts fast and hard, or shifts late. what can cause this

On the trottle body there is the trottle valve cable or TVC. This is what regulates the pressure in the transmission and determines how hard and when to shift. If you adjust this by moving the throttle cable forward towards the headlights it will result in an earlier smoother shift.

How to replace a throttle postion sensor in a 1997 pontiac grand prix 3800l nonsupercharger.

You need a torx socket set and remove the two screws that hold the sensor to the throttle body. The wires unplug from the sensor. Reconnect the new sensor and mount it back on the throttle body. There is no adjustment, it only goes on one way. If your check engine light is on, reset it by disconnecting your battery for about 30 seconds.
