Question about 1996 Pontiac Grand Am

1 Answer

I can't figure out the banging noise coming from center underneath dash When I drive it down the road, no noise until I turn from left to right. If I turn it left to right and apply brakes there is no noise. I'm talking big bang. Greg.

Big bang theory.

Ok, I've never heard of this happening to someone. If you turn left or right and apply brakes there is no noise. That means that the front end is probably ok. If it doesn't seem loose that way.

If you have a Sears nearby take it to them so they can listen to this banging.

They probably won't charge to look at it.

I have the battery light on, and a banging noise in the gas tank. Could this be the fuel filter in the tank or the alternator?


it sounds to me that your fuel pump is going out and if your battery light is going on then you might check the battery by disconnecting battery while engine running if it dies then your then your alternator is shot if not then you might have battery checked out

Having a steady growl once in motion, sounds louder on the passenger side. Manual transmission - no problems (yet) with day to day running down the road. Just noise - getting louder.


hello when you are driving down the road and its making the noise slightly turn left and right if the noise changes then replace the wheel bearing if not check the axle

I hear a loud ratteling noise coming from where


The rattle is likely a loose shield or a bad catalytic converter. As for the loud banging, Have you checked the front U-joints behind the brake rotors. As for the Reverse noise? Auto or stick shift?

My heater/ac fan dont work then when going down the road hit a bump it comes on for about 5 minutes the goes out also if you turn the steering wheel to the right on a curvy road it will come on turn back...


This sounds like a loose connection to the motor itself. My truck has been doing that lately and I finally figured out the problem only when I starting digging under the dash while the heater was going.

When you turn left or right, the steering column must be tugging on the wiring, and when you hit a bump it's just enough to jar the connection loose. Check where the plug goes directly into the motor...most likely it's under the dash on the passenger side, or on the firewall on the same side, but in the engine compartment. It could also be that your steering column has worn the coating off of the wire and it is shorting out every once in awhile when the exposed wire hits metal.
