Question about 2000 Pontiac Grand Am GT
Ok got a 2000 Grand am se 4 cylinder overheated ??? blew air an steam out of thermostat housing gasket no clanks bangs knocks just died along the highway temperature gauge read normal I was the one driving.. Took out plugs they were a lot worn from heat stuck finger down in cylinders all cylinders have kinda good compression dont have a gauge for that... when turning over it fires but backfires in the engine and intense smell of flooding the engine with fuel???? but will not start so what do ya think????
Not 100% sure on that engine, but I'd be looking at my timing chain & gears, especially if gears have nylon teeth. Pull covers & have a look at condition & positioning for correct. Other thing I'd check is distributor & especially gear at end of shaft. If metal gear at bottom, you should be o.k.,but if nylon,could have melted.heated & distorted or broke. Be sure to mark it for re-install & don't crank engine before re-install.
