Question about 1995 Pontiac Grand Am

1 Answer

95 grand am studders.

95 grand am, 150,000. The car shudders at times on the highway. Not all the time, IT is doing it more now though. Now, if I break real hard, it will stall, but start right back up. When it shudders, I can release the gas peday, press it again, and it would be fine. (for a little while). The car shifts perfecly so I am hoping it is not the tranny. The plugs are autolites, and has white on them after I checked them. Are they too hot?. Please help, Thank you, Tom

I have one of these myself a 97 it's a great car.
The shuttering could be a few things here they are.

-improperly balanced wheels
-uneven tire wear
-torn front bushings
-suspension damage

As for the stalling when you break unfortunately it sounds like it is the tranny. If you hold down the gas on the highway and the car jerks when shifting that's how you will know for sure if it is the tranny. But it can also be caused by the ICS motor. If it starts right back up and you have no problems at all after that unless you are breaking it is most likely the ICS motor.

95 Jeep Grand Cherokee leaking ATF, shudders when driving

Bank1 sensor 3 O2 heater. This can cause the shudder as engine adjustments are made.

The O2 sensors have built in heating elements to rapidly heat the part and save fuel. Its possible that engine is trying to adjust to compensate and is why it shudders.

As for trans leak, get it up on the rack for inspection. Could be simple pan gasket. Quick change oil/lube could see it.

My 95 lumina just recently started having trans problems ,at highway speeds it sometimes starts to shudder.It will only do this when highway driving ,never in city driving. I sure could use some help......

You need to ensure that it is cooling properly and maybe give it a service as it may have a blocked transmission filter.
But check the overheating first then do the service.
Let me know if you need more information.

I would take the throttle body off and look at the fuel pressure regulator spring they have a bad habit of breaking or getting weak and getting alot of sludge on the diaphram you can buy a regulator kit aftermarket if you need one.

Shuddering/jerking on highway, pull over, wont start for 30 mins

Last time I had that happen in a car everything blew. I found out the root of the problem was my timing chain, but I can tell you, you don't want to wait to get that checked out in any case or you will end up with a lot more problems.
