Make sure your plastic coolant container mounted on inside right fender is at least half full. Keep your eye on the temp gauge and make sure the car doesn't overheat. These sensors are very touchy and sometimes cause a fault when actually there is no real problem. Also make sure you didn't knock loose the oil pressure sending unit connector, located near the oil filter. Happy Motoring!

I have this same problem and had it checked. It is the wheel sensor. Mine is the passenger front right wheel sensor. According to the mechanic I take it to the GrandAm's are known for this. The part is about $40.

SOURCE: 150,000 mile service for a 1999 Pontiac Grand Am SE??

150,000 you should have the brakes checked, check brake lines, tune up (spark plugs, wiers, air filter, ect.) rotate your tiers replace if needed, oil change, be sure to change your cabbin filter to, most people don't know that their car has a cabin filter. The shop should tell you exactly what they would do to it.

If you have any questions E-mail me at TheChazer55@yahoo.com.

SOURCE: 2001 PONTIAC GRAND AM SE, WON'T CRANK,RAN MY GAS LOW

Sounds like air in fuel line. Purge fuel line. By "crank", do you mean engine spins but won't catch? Try starter fluid in intake.

Sounds like who ever did the work on your car needs to go back and check the plug wires to see if they are going to the right plugs. and check the fuel filter, and fuel pump pressure. I would also check the Catalytic Converter to see if it is stopped up, if so replace it. Check the throttle position sensor with an ohm meter, if bad replace it. Check the oxygen sensors as well. I am running out of Ideas, so I hope this helps.

Final drive speed sensor causing Trac light and rough shifting. Metal dust on the sensor. Have the transmission filter and fluid serviced. This should have been done at 60,000 miles. You may get an ABS light too. Service the sensor. Perform an OBDII scan for stored faults.

Sounds like the transmission fluid needs to be checked. Either low with a leak, or too much and fluid foaming up. Follow instructions on dip stick.

Could be a sticking switch on the brake pedal arm, up under the dash. On most cars, stepping on the brake signals the computer to unlock the torque converter in the transmission.

Hope this helps.

Burning oil, but dont know why


Nowdays 1 Qt. in 3000 miles, really isn't that bad, even some new vehicles claim that's normal. I know with my current vehicles, both at approx. 150,000-160,000 miles, they won't use any for first while after an oil change, but then after mileage starts adding up again, they start to use a little, approx.I Qt, every 1000 miles or so, until it's changed again. I've switched to the high mileage oil, just for piece of mind, as they say it revives seals, and has added protection for the higher mileage engines.This time around I'm thinking of adding "Lucas" & see how it works, as I've heard some pretty good reports on it, just to see if it will prolong that oil breakdown, at mid change.
