Electrical issue


Sounds like a poor connection at the battery or alternator. You need to make sure there is no corrosion or faults in these connections. If there is no fault there then you likely have a ground problem. Find your engine/Chassis ground, make sure it's tight and again free from corrosion and fault. Leaking battery acid can eat wires on the possitive and ground causing issues. Also if the car has been in an accident it could also have damaged or lossened the ground.

Speedometer not working


my speedometer will work every now and then but most the time it will read all the way up to 120 mph or stay at the wrong speed its not the speedometer or the dashboard cluster that's been checked out its a 2007 Pontiac Torrent FWD 5 speed transmission and it runs great. What do you think it could be?

Problems with my 1999 Pontiac Grand am v6.


Check the wiring that plugs into your speed sensor that is attached to your transmission. It is likely that it is loose, broken or both. If it is loose, the speedometer is getting eratic readings from the sensor. Therefore, it will jump around. The same thing happened with my 2002 Grand Caravan. But in my case, one of the wires was chewed through by rodents.

1995 pontiac bonneville stalls


I just went through lots of troubleshooting and expense on my 1996. Whenever I would lift my foot off the accelerator and was below about 30 mph, the rpm's would starts jumping around and sometimes it would stall. If I gave it a little gas (accelerator), I could sometimes keep it running. It also backfired once in a while. Starts right back up. Also, if I let it idle while in part, it would die after 1-2 minutes.

I ended up finding a hole in the fuel regulator. About a ~$70 part if you get an AC Delco, but very simple to change.
