SOURCE: i ran a scanner on my 2002 pontiac grand prix 3100

A code “multiple misfire” may mean that one or more of the following has happened:

•Faulty spark plugs or wires
•Faulty coil (pack)
•Faulty oxygen sensor(s)
•Faulty fuel injector(s)
•Burned exhaust valve
•Faulty catalytic converter(s)
•Stuck/blocked EGR valve / passages
•Faulty camshaft position sensor
•Defective computer

If there are symptoms such as the engine is stumbling or hesitating, check all wiring and connectors that lead to the cylinders (i.e. spark plugs). Depending on how long the ignition components have been in the car, it may be a good idea to replace them as part of your regular maintenance schedule. I would suggest spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, and rotor (if applicable). Otherwise, check the coils (a.k.a. coil packs). In some cases, the catalytic converter has gone bad. If you smell rotten eggs in the exhaust, your cat converter needs to be replaced. I've also heard in other cases the problems were faulty fuel injectors.

Random misfires that jump around from one cylinder to another (read: P030x codes) also will set a P0300 code. The underlying cause is often a lean fuel condition, which may be due to a vacuum leak in the intake manifold or unmetered air getting past the airflow sensor, or an EGR valve that is stuck open.

SOURCE: (1999 pontiac grand prix 3100 v6) how do I remove

Instructions Things You'll Need

  • 3/8-inch drive breaker bar
  • Metric socket kit
  • New serpentine belt
    • 1

      Park the Pontiac in a safe work area and open the hood.

    • 2

      Inspect the top of the black plastic cover that surrounds the fan for the serpentine belt routing diagram. This diagram has the instructions for installing the new serpentine belt around the accessory pulleys.

    • 3

      Inspect the front of the engine and locate the automatic belt tensioner. The tensioner on the 1999 Pontiac model vehicles is located between the alternator and the crankshaft pulley. The tensioner has a pulley on one end with a bolt head in the center of the pulley. Use the bolt head to rotate the tensioner.

    • 4

      Turn the tensioner counterclockwise with the breaker bar and a metric socket. Pull the belt out from under the tensioner pulley with your other hand. Then, slowly let the tensioner retract until it stops.

    • 5

      Pull the belt out of the other remaining pulleys. Then, pull the belt out of the engine bay and lay it on the ground.

    • 6

      Route the new belt around the crankshaft pulley. Then, route the new belt around the other remaining pullleys by using the serpentine belt routing diagram for instructions.

    • 7

      Rotate the tensioner pulley counterclockwise with the breaker bar and socket. Then, slide the new belt under the tensioner pulley. Slowly let the tensioner retract until it stops. The tensioner pulls all of the slack out of the belt and brings the new belt to the proper tension. Remove the breaker bar and socket from the tensioner pulley.

    • 8

      Inspect the new belt to ensure that it is seated inside of all the accessory pulleys as directed by the diagram. Then, crank the engine and allow it to run for about 15 seconds. Turn the engine off. Inspect the belt again once more to ensure that
      the belt is still around each pulley. Close the hood.

(1999 pontiac grand prix 3100 v6) any tips or very important things that I need to know before changing my oil (mobil 1 full synthetic) and oil filter (ac delco professional)?


Make sure the engine is cool before you try, nothing worse then being under a car with hot oil running down your arm. Make sure you rub the o ring on the new filter with clean oil to make installation easier and provide a better seal. Helps to have the front end lifted, gives you more room and helps drain out more dirty oil. Its not too bad once you've done it once, you'll do fine. Oh one last thing, when you first pull the drain plug off the oil will shoot a good 4-6 inches out so have the pan set with plenty of room.

cylinder head bolts, step one;33 ft. lbs, second step rotate an additional 90-degrees (1/4 turn). do not put any oil or sealant on gasket. the gasket should seal itself if torqued properly.
