Question about 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix

1 Answer

Car over heated

I have a 2004 Grand Prix. I was almost home with my car and as I went up a steep hill the alarm went off I looked at the alert. I looked at the temperature gage and it was to the end. After a few seconds the alarm went off and the engine cooled down to close to the middle of the temp range and did not go back to the danger area. When I turned off the car after driving about 1 mile coolant container still had some coolant in it but not much. Do I need to get a new car?

    What kind of foolish question is that? Do you need a new car. Have it checked out and repaired.

If tranny fluid is clear and at normal level, then the issue is with the transmission - it is getting ready to go sayonara.

Better get that fix before you get stranded.

My 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix runs good for about 5 min. Then the tack goes wild and the car starts to try to quit. No check engin lite and no codes.


It could be the crankshaft position sensor. I have a 2001 Grand Prix, and when the crankshaft position sensor went out, the tach would drop to zero, and the car would act like it wanted to stall for about a second.
