Question about 1997 Pontiac Grand Am

1 Answer

Im having a few poblems and i'm wondering if they all might be connected: my grandmother gave me this car, she bought it brand new in '97 and has been the only owner besides myself. Just recently she had a diagnostic test ran on it and nothing was wrong. She gives me the car and now, a month later, all these problems start happening. -first the power steering fluid starts leaking everywhere -then it begins to overheat when idle -after that, it overheats just whenever its driven -lastly, and most importantly my engine is ROCKING. that cant be good. can you please tell me if a motor mount being broken has anything to do with the engine rocking, and if that affects all the other parts in the car? Thank you!

Yes, a bad mount will cause rocking, also a misfiring engine will also cause engine rock, the power steering leak may by a hose that needs replacing but before any work is done i would have this overheating checked, maybe just a bad thermostant or a bad cooling fan but these things are not related, these are just normal maintance wear and tear things that happen, hope this is helpful.

Hy almare - I would take it back. Did you buy it from a junk yard and were hoping to make it work or did you buy from auto parts store and they gave you the wrong thing? I would take it back and get the right part . Try another place if they don't have it. Or go yo the junkyard and there. You shouldn't have to jimmy rig that connection. Thanks.

My car wonders at high speeds


I would FIRST check tire pressures. Make sure they are set to the factory specs. Road test, if problem STILL persists, a wheel alignment would be advised. Hope this helps

I bought the Haynes Repair Manual for the Buick/Olds/Pontiac Full Size (FWD) and it has the diagrams you are looking for in the back of the book. If you have access to an Auto Zone, they have it or try on-line. I hope this helps, good luck

You have connected your harness wrongly..don't always call by the color code. I'd recommend getting in touch with a local mechanic..
