When a vehicle is in 3 feet of water, the electrical
is usually damaged to the point that the vehicle
is scrapped
The vehicle is 12 years old or more,so even without
the water in there, it has some wear & you can use google
to check for bulletins of known engine issues,but I don't
think your going to fix that, even without the water issues.
The motor would have to come apart to find the issue & you
may rebuild it & never know

you can pull the valve covers and inspect the rocker arms, but you may have a bad main or rod bearing. im leaning toward the main bearing being spun, at least.

SOURCE: there is a ticking sound in the dash in my pontiac

my brother had this problem with his car, and his turn signals were acting up also... somewhere at the base of the turn signal lever there is a switch that is activated by moving the lever up (right) and down (left) and there is a type of grease inside this switch. he solved the problem by wiping a lot of this grease out of there. (after years of use, metal shavings from the circuit build up in the grease allowing the circuit to complete itself randomly, causing the clicking sound) try it out and see if it helps. might not hurt to see if you can replace that grease as well.

My passenger front seat will not budge.ive tried everything!i have a 2001 pontiac grand am.please tell me what size the bolts are that hold the seat in.

You may have to remove the four nuts holding the seat down, remove the seat, and look for change, or debreas stuck in the track. Check the bearings, lubercate the track lightly. If the bearings are shot, or the frame/track is bent, you can try to pry it back, but it may be easier to purchase a new seat.

2001 gram am the engine turns but wont statr

Here's where to look. You may have water in the crankcase, engine cylinders, fuel tank, and air intake. Electrical damage is also likely if the car was not dried out before engaging the starting system, and engine computer control system. This will be a tedious task. Dry it out and change the oil. You may have to pull the spark plugs to clear the rest of the water out of the cylinders. There may be water damage to the computer system if the key was turned on while wet. After you are sure it is completely dry, have self test diagnostics run to see if the engine control system is functioning properly. The exhaust should be clear, but if restricted, the engine may not start either. Time is best spent letting it dry and changing contaminated fluids.
