Question about Pontiac Grand Am

1 Answer

I am looking into buying a 95 grand am. The seller says that all is good except that the car takes a few minutes to get to top speed and someone told him that it needed a sensor. What kind of sensor would that be and how much?

    Most muffler shops can test your old oned and replace it too. Get a quote first. Some places are higher than others

Automatic transaxle issues on 95 Saturn sl2. I

saturn was never the best model of car sold! amazed it has lasted this long. sounds like a re-build (not worth it)- possibly a 're-built' replacement. labor would prob. cost more than tranny! prob. need axles & bearings replaced as well. part it out and get a newer compact ford, or toyota product!! good luck!

Looking to buy a 1997 grand am for my son. Seller says there's a growling noise (traction control) upon taking off, so he just takes off slow. Is this a major issue or something cheaply fixable

I would be suspicious as the growling noise indicates a failed bearing ( probably rear axle bearing or diff noise). Have a professional mechanic check it out but I would say it will be costly or else the seller would have had it fore selling it.

I am going to buy a Honda Accord V6 40 Luxury 2003 model from a private seller and I was wondering what are some problems I should look out for just in case. Especially because they are selling it to me...

BEFORE buying car, ask seller if you can have an independent shop do a "pre sale inspection". If seller says NO, then pass on it. Hondas are good cars, but when sold cheap - I suspect problems. If seller says yes, then have a competent shop inspect it. It might cost a few $$ for inspection but it's cheap insurance.

95 jeep grand charokee laredo hard to start,

Check your spark plug, wires, distributor cap and finger. If you spark plugs older than 15000ml, replace them. To check your spark plug wires, use a tester (U can buy at any auto store) you hold direct on the wire and a small sparkling will show you if the wire works or not. You can check the wires also with this: use a single spark plug (don't remove one out your engine!), remove the wire from first SP, connect it with the single SP, hold it to ground, let someone start your need to see regular sparks.. do this step by step with all 6 wires. If all wires are fine, check the SP's, If you miss on one wire, replace the wire, if you miss on more than one, chekc the distributor cap and finger. If this items are older than 20000ml or 5 years, replace them.

May buy a Cherokee with a front differential problem.

if you don't have experience with working on cars .... i recommend you take it to a mechanic you trust to assess what kind of work it would need. it's a small investment compared to buying someone elses problem

95 Suburban trans. problems

You better look for another truck, sounds like someone is trying to unload a piece of junk on someone who is a little nieve about what there buying, there plenty others out there with nothing major wrong with them, and maybe for less money, you don't need to be buying someone elses problems. STEER CLEAR.

1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee chugs after it warms up. I've changed the fuel filter and it is still having the same issue. Could it be some sort of sensor?

Hi G. Sanders,
I have a 1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport which I love and has a K&N filter and approxmately 140k miles. I'm not sure if we are having the same problem but here goes; within a few minutes of cranking up, my Jeep goes through a "chug period" for a few minutes. During those minutes it seems it is not getting fuel.I cannot trust it to pull out in traffic because it seems to lose power during this time as well and sometimes backfires. After a few (maybe 3-5 minutes) it's fine. It doesn't matter whether it's 35 or 95 degrees, it does the same thing. I've had a Jeep "Expert" to look at it and put it on a computer but could not identify the issue. I cannot offer a solution unfortunately but hopefully some Jeep "Angel" can. It is very dangerous and I'm hoping someone can offer some advice. Good luck Jeep buddy.
