I lost my keys to a 1997 pontiac sunfire how can i start it without them and least damage possible


Take the serial number of the car to a GM dealer and ask them to cut a key for you. You may need to provide proof of ownership.

Ran out of gas then filled up now car wont start. I have a 97 pontiac sunfire


The electric fuel pump located in the gas tank can and do burn out, from running out of gas. If it won't run, the fuel pressure will need to be checked to make certain it is the fuel pump. A fuel filter can get plugged and the motor will quit running, but you are sure that you ran out of gas?

My 1997 pontiac sunfire is overheating. There is


there is a steel pipe that runs across the motor there, they are prone to corroding and leaking, you might get away with cutting it and bridging with a piece of hose but the best bet is to replace it. We have been lucky a couple of times and found a car in the wreckers that had newish ones fitted.
