Do 2002 pontiac grand am se has timing belt or timing chain and at what miles it has to be changed

The car has a timing belt - [ rubber] and should be changed at 100,000 miles - each 100,000 miles = new belt.
To save problems many people do this at about 90,000 miles and it is also best to change the water pump while you're in there.

Best of it.

# 6 cylinder misfire. 88300 miles. should I do tune up?

A misfire can be caused by many thing, most common is a defective ignition coil or defective fuel injector, the plugs last well over 100,000 miles so unless you disturbed them they should be ok. Your first tune is at 100,000 miles as stated in the owners manual under maintenance. Engine problems can also cause a misfire, these include a vacuum leak at the intake manifold or a burned valve.

What service does an 04 pontiac needs at at 80k?

gm coolant requires replacement at 5yrs/100,000 miles. rec having cooling system flushed. other then that a general inspection should be all thats required at this interval inspection should include brake linings, fluid lvls, air filter, tires, fluid leaks ect. although there may not be manufacturer requirements for transmission fluid and filter change may want to consider having it done, also fuel system service with injector flush is very benificial to fuel mileage and restoring engine power. gm does NOT ever recommend engine crankcase flushes that some service shops sell. spark plugs in these engines do not require replacing until 100k miles unless causing engine to run rough

The spark plugs on this engine are located under the ignition coil and module assembly. To gain access to the spark plugs, the coil and module assembly must be removed. On the 2.4L (VIN T) engines, the spark plugs are platinum and require replacement every 100,000 miles (160,900 km) or 60 months which ever comes first.
