My 2001 Pontiac gran am keeps failing the emissions test. So far, 3 fuel caps, alternator, vent and purge valve and 2 oxygen sensors replaced. What else is there to check for? 6cyclinder, 2.4 engine. ...

The fact that you have had the fuel cap replaced 3 times and the oxygen sensor twice tells me that maybe the diagnosis has been less than accurate. Maybe you need a different mechanic.

Just bought a 2001 Pontiac Grand Am 2001 used. Just had the oil changed this morning. Last night after test driving the car...the check engine light came on...and the guy at the car dealer...said it...

This repair procedure should cost around 80.00 to 100.00 dollars. This includes the labor and part.
This will also depend on the shops labor rate and which O2 needs replacing as well as THEIR charge for the replacement O2.

The drive belt on our 1998 Pontiac Sunfire keeps breaking. We have fixed it 4 times. The first by a paid mechanic which last like a week and then we have fixed it the other times. This has lasted anywhere...

The spring loaded belt tensioner should examined closely. They have a tendency to cause the belt to track crooked when they start to fail. You should not see any of the coil spring that is mounted behind the tensioner.
