Sometimes they just go out....lack of lubrication can cause problems but more then likely it is just going out. Try taking the air cleaner off and reaching in where the fins are and you will see a nut on the end, grab the nut and see if there is any play moving it up and down. If there is any play then the bearing is going out.

Close to 100% of the time it is just the coupler.

Take the accessory belt off and see if the pully has any play in it. If it does you need a new internal coupler. That is what solved that problem for me.

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)

Would replacing a power steering pump in a 2002 Grand Prix GTP Supercharger cause the SuperCharger belt to break.


No.

The supercharger belt is on the main drive, the water pump is on the accessory drive. Provided that they are both properly installed of course.

The pulley itself does not have a bearing in it. The shaft however that the pulley is pressed onto does, inside the snout.

2000 Grand Prix GTP supercharger fluctuates when accelerating


There is no wastegate.

Change the spark plugs and pay special attention to the plug on bank 3. Look for physical damage on the electrode...cracked, bent etc.
Use Autolite 605's copper core gapped to .055" and NEVER run less than 92 octane.

Have it towed as the blower has probably lost one or more bearings. If metal shavings enter the cylinders, there could be serious damage there as well. Good luck!

How supercharger oil is need for the supercharger, 1997 Grand Prix GTP?


The oil should be changed every 30K miles according to the Pontiac manual.
However, it is best to change it sooner or whenever you don't know when the last change was done.

1998 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP Supercharger coupler


The rattle you are/were hearing is typical on the Eaton blowers. After they get some miles on them, the coupler wears out and the holes become ob-longed or out of round which causes the rattle you are hearing.
Usually at idle you can hear it very clearly.
I have changed a few, and they are pretty simple to change. Just take off the supercharger belt, then you may have to remove your alternator bracket, depends on which years, drain the supercharger oil with a spray bottle sprayer (it does stink badly) then just remove the 10 or so bolts that hold the snout to the housing. Remember to keep track of where they go, some are different lengths.
You may have to use a rubber mallet, or your hand to hit the snout around to break the gaskets loose. Pull off the old black hockey puck looking thing (coupler) clean out the snout, attach new coupler, then reassemble and put new supercharger oil back in, and your rattle will be gone, at least for another 100k miles.
Best place to get a coupler is at,

Costs about 30, plus the few bottles of oil for the supercharger.

Replacing 90 pipe assembly part on 1997 Grand Prix GT


If its the same as my GTP, its just under the Supercharger right in the middle of the intake.
Just pull it out, its only held in with a O-ring. When you replace it, make sure you lube the gasket with grease so its easier to put back in, and less likely to nick the O-ring.
