Question about 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix

1 Answer

My 2004 pontiac grand prix loosing power. When I am on the freeway it feels like it's sluggish and when i step on the gas sometimes it doesn't downshift. also every now and then the temp gauge seems to indicate overheating then it drops down...i check coolant and its okay. also the o2 sensor is bad and I haven't done a tuneup on the spark plugs and wires. could all this contribute to the car running sluggish? Oh yeah and I also replaced the mufflers with performance mufflers.

SOURCE: 1992 Pontiac Grand PrixPower loss,erratic idle

im fixing what seems to be the same problem on my 92 grand prix try listening for a vacum leak when the engine is warm. my problem is the brake booster is leaking. when i come to a stop it almost stalls. i dont know if that will fix your problem but from my experience the grandprix's thats my guess. if im wrong look in the fuel injectors

SOURCE: where is the coolant sensor located for a pontiac grand am gt

There are 2 coolant sensors, one to control the radiator fan, and one to tell your computer how hot the engine is. They are both mounted in the engine, not far from where the upper radiator hose attaches, and where your thermostat is.

TPS gone BAD...Got a new one...what to do!?

The best recommendation I can offer is to get the Haynes repair manual for your vehicle. There isn't enough space here to outline all the steps and procedures. The manual will have detailed instructions and a listing of any special tools you may need.
