The cleaner will not hurt anything. Your motor will just burn it up like fuel. I use the STP (red bottle) because it says on the bottle that it gets rid of condensation in the fuel tank. Condensation (water) does form and collects in the bottom of the gas tank. I use the fuel treatment 3 or 4 times a year and I think it really works. I have a 2001 Monte Carlo that I bought new and it has 177000 miles and it gets 34.5 mpg highway.I have been useing the fuel treatment from the beginning. It has the 3400 V-6.Its basically the same engine you have.
Also you must install a new fuel filter every 30000 miles. The tanks at the gas stations are filthy.
Also check the condition of your air filter and replace at 20000 max.
Transmission filter and oil at each 50-60000 miles.
I hope this info helps you.

I was wondering is there a way to put a v8 caddy motor in a 96 pontiac grand prix se 2 door coup. The motor in my grand prix is a 3100 v6

I would get another 3100 because there is noway you want to try swapping them. It won't work. A used 3100 isn't that high any more.

Exactly which pulley is my water pump? (1999 pontiac grand prix 3100 sfi v6)??????????????

The power steering pump is dead center on the top of the motor. If your standing on the passenger side the water pump is the next pulley to the right. The serpentine belt will go over the power steering pulley, under the water pump pulley, and then around the a/c compressor.

My grand prix se 3100 v6 wont turn over. the security light flashes,but the caar wont turn over.

if the security is activated the car wont crank for 15 min what is happening is when u insert the key it isnt reading the key if u have a spare key try it and if it does the same thing then id say u will have to change the ignition lock because the contacts are worn out in it and it isnt reading the key

1995 pontiac grand prix with a 3100 sfi v6. the car runs but not well. the car does alot of bucking the rpm drop when car is in gear and gets stuck almost at like 1200 rpm untill you let off or give it...

first thing is to check to see if the "check engine light is on...if so, check for trouble codes, then address any codes that show up...if the "check engine light isn't on, then you should do a pressure test on your cooling system, to see if maybe you have a head gasket leaking, (most rad shops will do this for little or nothing $$$) If you haven't changed your fuel filter in a while you should do that anyway. If everything checks out so far than you should check your fuel pressure, with a pressure guage. You may also want to do a compression test if the above seems o.k.
