Question about 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix
I have a 2006 pontiac grand prix v-6 superchared. It runs great other than in wet rainy weather. It spits, sputters, and stalls in wet weather at low idle/speeds and for a day or two after the wet weather??? then it runs great again. What is going on??? How can i fix it
A cause for that would be an oxygen sensor getting wet, the one on the inlet side of the catalytic converter.

as you face the engine the thermostat bell is on the right (drivers side) Follow the radiatoe hose. Remove the two bolts and raise the bell still attatched to the hose. the thermostat is there with the rubber seal. You can gently pry the thermostat out with a screwdriver or something similar. Put in new thermostat be sure it is the same as the old one, and then replace or change the seal (be sure it is the smae size and thickness as the old one as I got the wrong size from Napa) Then replace the bell, and tighten, but not over tighten. I hope this helps!

i do believe you have to take the passengers side dash apart behind the glove compartment. go to autozone and get a manual or go to the library and check the chiltons manual. this is not an easy job. how bad is the leak? if its not bad these heater cores are made of all aluminum. i would buy a bottle of that radiator additive and see if that takes care of the problem first. it only cost about 5 bucks a bottle and it may permanantly fix your problem.

Same problem. 1995 Pontiac Grand Prix V6 3.1L no start problem Question The problem, my car runs great first start of the day but does have a miss fire, and I can drive for hours without a problem, but when I turn it off and try to start again 30 -60 minutes later it chuggles and dies and won't start for a least 3-5 hours later, then runs fine again. It trys to turn over and the battery does not drag, no signs of a bad alternator. Everything has power, all fuses are ok I checked them today. Second trip to repair shop resulted in no 3 fuel injector replaced with good results. Fuel pressure checked out ok, No smoking white or black, fuel filter replace and car had a tune up recently also the mass air flow was replaced supposedly, I am starting to wonder if these parts were actually new used or not put in at all but I am charged anyway this is fourth time to the repair shop however now the third time but this is at no charge by a church member's friend so I am inclined to take his advice and think it is the engine module. Three different auto repair garages tell me the following: either the cam shaft sensor, crank shaft sensor, or ignition module, causing no start or start and chuggle and die problem and bad & loose hoses sucking in air. (From my experience engines don't take in air they leak it out through vacuum leaks.) Apparently the last fix resulted in hand made manifold gaskets I did not know about and may also be causing contamination on my low coolant sensor cause it stays on, however back to the no start problem; my engine is getting to much air I am told, I am incline to think there is a vacuum hose leak somewhere instead. Was also told intake manifold gaskets may have a air leak, bad and loose hoses and possibly the sensor's I mentioned. So before I shove out money I don't have, I am doing some homework and found your site. What do you think is going on. Someone else said I do not have a crank shaft sensor. So I don't know whom to believe.
