Question about 1999 Pontiac Grand Am GT

1 Answer

2003 Pontiac Grand Am back up lights over time fill up with water

This car is equipped with 2 sets of back up lights one in the upper
area and the other ones located in the lower bumper.
The ones in the lower bumper area seem to fill up with moisture after
time and I have changed them about 8 times since I bought the car.
The Dealer use to change them for free when the car was on warranty
and they never did have a fix for the problem.

Any suggestions or is there a fix to this problem.


Thanks
Richard

Unfortunately it is a common issue and a poor design. You can remove them and use a clear silicone and reinstall them and apply a film sparingly around the wiring access. Were yours getting cracked on the side facing the front of the car (back side of the light?) If so one solution was to apply spray foam to the back of the light to prevent rock damage.

Overheating


Most common reason for overheating is 1. low coolent lvl 2. faulty thermostat (stuck closed). 3. Faulty water pump preventing coolent from circulating through engine.

Check coolent lvl in radiator when engine is cool by removing the cap and filling it up till you can see the coolent, replace cap and try. If you have the proper lvl of coolent. Replace your thermostat, which is located under the thermostat housing (right underneith where your top radiator hose connects). Fill with coolent and see if that helps. Next test is to start the car and let it run till it gets to normal operating temp or near (180 to 220 degrees F) Pinch your upper radiator hose and see if you can feel a gush, or flow of water rush through the hose when you release your pinch hold on the hose, (by pinch, I mean to try and totally squeeze the hose together) If you don't feel the rush of coolent through the hose, then your waterpump is faulty. If your car quits overheating, but your heater hoses don't get hot, then they are probably stopped up at the point where they connect to the engine. Its a common area for gunk, rust, and corrosion to build up.

My daughter just bought a 2000 pontiac grand am and it gets water in the back drivers side when it rains hard. Any suggestions as to what the problem is?


Is the car equipped with a sunroof. If so, I suspect sunroof drain is plugged up (leaves etc..) You need to blow compressed air through drains to unplug (if so equipped) You can also take it to a self serve car wash and spray hi pressured soapy water at suspect area, soap will leave a trail.
