Seems like your oil pressure switch gave up, its located on the side of the oil filter, you can take it out and test with a amp meter. it should cost you less than 20 bucks to buy something like that.

Can you put a transmission from a 2002 chevy impala in a 1999 Saturn sw2


about replacing a transmission with one from a Junkyard or cross referencing them. and to show you that not all 4T65E transmissions are interchangeable, although they look alike. Guys with the comp g package or the Impala police option often find this out the hard way.
Your car and the potential donor car will have a tag in the trunk (usually under the spare tire cover) that lists the RPO codes for your car, along with your VIN. RPO=Regular Production Order. Several of these codes relate to the transmission, and you will need them to begin to find a proper match. If you can't find the RPO tags, you can look up the RPOs for a nominal fee ($5) according to the VIN number at the following website: www . compnine . com .
I know these transmissions are different in at least 5 areas, and you have to match each area for a proper swap.
FIRST is the transmission type, which relates to torque converter size, the strength of the internal gears, and the strength of the differential. Here are the basic types along with their RPO codes:
M15 - 245 mm (9.6 in) torque converter
MN3 - 258 mm (10.2 in) torque converter
MN7 - 258 mm (10.2 in) torque converter and heavy-duty gearbox and differential (see 4T65E-HD)
MD7 - 245 mm (9.6 in) torque converter (Chinese version)
M76 - 245 mm (9.6 in) torque converter (with all-wheel drive capability)
You will want a match these RPO codes.
SECOND is the final drive ratio. The PCM can detect the difference, and in some cars may not engage if the correct final drive is not present. Here are the RPO codes for the four different final drives used in the transmission.
FQ3 - RATIO TRANSAXLE FINAL DRIVE 2.86;
FR2 - RATIO TRANSAXLE FINAL DRIVE 2.93;
F83 - RATIO TRANSAXLE FINAL DRIVE 3.05;
FR9 - RATIO TRANSAXLE FINAL DRIVE 3.29;
To narrow year search for potential cars, the following site have pretty good info on the final drives used on various cars. Click on the years of the cars in question.http://www.gmtuners.com/transmission/index.htm
THIRD is the converter stall speed. There will be small differences for most cars as it is based on car weight as well as final drive value and engine ratings. Reusing the cars original torque converter will address that area. Some indication of stall speed value is given in the K-factor information in the above gmtuners page. This bottom of this page from the gmtuners website will show you how to decipher the four digit code on the torque converter. http://www.gmtuners.com/gmtransinfo.htm
FOURTH, the torque converter needs to have the correct lockup clutch friction material for the PCM that controls it (regardless of HD nor not). This changed over the years. The newer ones can be used on older transmissions with calibration changes, but older type in newer transmissions will fail. Reusing the cars original torque converter will address that area.
FIFTH is area is electrical compatibility, and this is what trips up a lot of guys. 3 different electrical interfaces to the transmissions were used from 97-08. Some of these differences had to do with how the PCM determined what gear the transmission was in, or was commanded to be in. If you look on a GM parts web site, you will see that three different internal harnesses are available for the 4T65E. Each of the three harnesses is listed below along with the cars that use the harness. Your car and the donor car will have to match. If you have any additional insight, please leave me a comment and I can correct this post.

I went to drive my 2001 pontiac grand am se and the low coolant light came on, i was not even a mile home so turned around , pulled into driveway oil light came on i shut car off open hood and oil w


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!

Change oil light stays on


If your transmission fluid light is on then yes you should change it. If the light still doesn't go off after a full change then you might want to check and see if you have a wiring problem.

1999 Pontiac Grand AM 4DR. SE fuel gauge and other problems(help)


I have a 97 and an 00 Grand Prix and an 03 Pontiac Montana. The fuel gauge in all three vehicles don't work. The dealer here says it's a common problem in Colorado where I live. The government required additives in the gas cause corrosion problems with the fuel level sensor float linkage that sends the signal to the fuel gauge. The repair requires the removal of your fuel tank and replacement of the linkage and sensor. It would cost somewhere around $500. I've leared to reset my trip meter with every fill-up and watch the miles and check the fuel mileage with every fill-up to make sure I know when I'm about to run out.

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.
