Question about 1986 Pontiac Grand Prix

2 Answers

86 Grand Prix

I still have my first car and it is a 1986 GP with bucket seats and 305 engine. I let it sit for a few years and started it up back in 2004. It ran fine and I decided to park it again. The car is in really bad shape but the engine runs when it is in neutral. I am sure the inhabiting mice were quite startled to here her growl!! Is this car worth my time in fixing it? I hate to just junk it but I dont see it becoming a classic any time soon. Any suggestions?

Can I replace my 98 grand prix driver's seat with


You can replace it as long as the one you are replacing is the same set-up. If you have a manual adjusting seat and replace it with a power seat it will fit but you wont have the hook ups for it. Also make sure if it is a bucket seat (single person) you dont replace it with a bench (3 persons fit in front) seat or you will run into problems with the center console and shifter. vice versa may bolt up but there will be a gap between the 2 front seats

I have a 2005 Pontiac GP. We had the cat converter replaced a year ago. After they replaced it, the Check engin light came back on a few months later. The code was a bank 1 sensor 1 . We replaced the...


I think there are 2 o2 sensors on that car one in engine compartment an one near the converter.
both will send the same code if you have your old sensor use it on the one in the engine compartment if you can, the plugs and sensors are the same.
Good luck,Gary

Stuck seat belt


Remove the panels to the belt, normally these can miss roll and get stuck. Unbolt the unit so you can get some slack that should be enough to release and pull it back out to correct it. If that will not do it get a replacement from a junkyard and replace.

How do you take out the front seats on a 2004 grand prix gt?


You will need to crawl under the vehicle. The bolts holding them down are located there. You may need two people. One to hold the bolt secure insde the car and one to turn the bolt from underneith. There maybe as many as 6 bolts per seat. I am assuming these are bucket style seats. Tell me how it turns out, Raz

My 1993 pontiac grand prix with the 3.1 engine stalls when it idles at a stop light but it starts right back up. it has plenty of power. we changed the o2 sensor did the vaccum leaks and ths spark plugs....


The next thing to try in regards to the stalling would be to change out the Throttle Position Sensor this sensor is the usual cause of this symptom.

My 305 (V8) Carb'd engine likes to diesel when i shut off the car


Hopefully this should be a cheap solution to fix the problem. Your timing is a little off. You need to adjust your distributor. First start your car. Then loosen the bolt on the cap. slowly turn the cap until the engine evens out and it sounds proper. Tighten the bolt on the cap. Turn off the car and everything should be good from there. Hope this helps.

NO START , COLD


have local auto parts store check the battery, it may have a couple bad cells, which would reduce cranking amps... would still have enough to run lights etc., but just not enough juice to start the car...
