SOURCE: 1999 pontiac grand prix . will not run

If wiggling the wires cured the code, then one of the wires is broken inside the insulation. Pull on each wire one at a time. look for the colored insulation to stretch, this will be the broken wire. For the other car that wont rev up, this is a common when the catalytic concverter is plugged up. This will also cause MAF codes, and in turn, TRAC OFF light.

SOURCE: 2001 Pontiac Montana - what is a misfire #5?

Without your actual trouble code, I am assuming that you are have a misfire on cylinder # 5. The computer cannot really tell what is causing the misfire only that cyl 5 is not putting out full power. If it misfires when cold then smooths out as it warms up, I would say it is probably an injector that is sticky, as it warms up it starts working properly.

Testimonial: "Thank you for your suggestion. I will have that checked out. I will also ask my mechanic what the actual trouble code says."

Does it have the 2.3l Quad 4 engine? If so replace the plastic piece that the coils go into, they go bad and leak spark to the cam towers and then you get a nice one or multiple cylinder misfire.

If your oil level is full, light is off and no abnormal engine noises, if should be ok to drive to the shop. If light does come on, stop the engine. I would also have the shop check your oil pressure with a manual gauge, to determine the exact oil pressure reading. This could save you from major engine failure due to low oil pressure. I hope this helps.

No such thing as a Tune-Up

Only Spark Plugs are left from a tune-up,

You have a check light on
Now -- they have been on all vehicles
for 30 years.
So I don't see where you shouldn't
know what to do

Check for codes

I have a Pontiac torrent 2006 and I receive the ccodes P0442 small leak from and P0771 lean bank1,previously went to dealer they kept saying gas cap. I need help I think its the converter or oxygen sensor...


A p0442 code is solved by replacing the gas cap in most cases, especially if it is the original gas cap. As for the p0771 lean code, there are many issues that can cause this code, O2 sensor, small exhaust leak, spark plug or fuel injector issue, spark issue...the list goes on. This code will need a good understanding with diagnostic procedure and testing and a scan tool would help. You may get lucky with replacing the spark plugs and checking for an exhaust leak and repair the exhaust. A scanner will allow you to see what the engine management components are doing while the engine is running. Keep in mind, it may take several good trips to turn the check engine light off after repairs are made and codes are erased.

My check engine light on my 2006 Chevy Equinox keeps coming on. I have replaced the gas cap because the original one wouldn't screw on tight. I also took it to a repair shop and they replaced the evap vent...


I would bring it back to the shop that did the work. If the code is coming out as a problem with the evap system it is not abnormal for the system to take 2 or 3 days for it to read again.
