You probably have a problem in the evap emissions system and a superficial engine diagnostic @ a shop will likely confirm this. a loose gas cap is the most common cause for this, so it tells you to check it first in an attempt to save you a trip to the shop. if the cap is new and tightened past 3 clicks, then the problem lies somewhere else in that system. there are many parts in that system, so it probably would be best left to a shop to figure out exactly what the cause is.

Can u grease bearings 99 granprix turbo?


Well, lets see....there is no "Grand Prix Turbo" so I am assuming that you mean that your Grand Prix is a 3.8L that is equipped with a supercharger.

The supercharger bearings are lubricated with synthetic oil that is contained in the supercharger gousing. It is self-contained and does not rely on engine oil for lubrication. You can check the oil level in the supercharger by removing the plug in the supercharger housing (see diagram)

2004 grand prix check gas cap light on changed gas cap and still the same problem dont know what to do


Open the trunk, pull the carpet back to reveal the access to the fuel pump. The gas tank pressure sensor is located on top or the fuel pump. The connector has 3 wires, 1 black and 2 colored. Pull the plug off the sensor, put jumper across the 2 colored wires, tape it up with electrical tape. Replace the access cover, the carpet, close the trunk and never see that "CHECK GAS CAP" message again.

Have not had the pcv changed in a while and cannot locate it. 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix 3800 series 3, with super charger.


If I remember correctly this vehicle has a plastic plenum and the pcv valve is inside the plenum. Only time it is usually replaced is when the intake gasket needs replaced (and it will).

My car needs a fuel pump,I was told to just replace the fuel tank


Your pump is not compatible with the supercharger pump. The pressure rates are much high for a supercharged engine. Your normally aspirated engine requires less fuel, thus, a smaller capacity pump.

You may want to check under the rear seat to see if there is an access hatch to remove the fuel pump/sending assembly. Then dropping the tank would not be an issue.

I would not suggest putting a used fuel pump into any vehicle. A new one should be available for 50-100 dollars. Also replace the strainer at the base of the fuel pump when you replace the pump.
