I have a 2004 Grand Prix GTP, it has around 97000 miles on it. When should I do a tune up? Also, it keeps saying "system charge failure" when I try to start it up.


I have a 2004 grand prix GT2, it has 197586 miles on it, RUNS LIKE A CHAMP. I change my oil with valvoline max life semi synthetic about every 5-8k miles. at 10k miles it says i have 53%oil life remaing so i just change it anyways. I have done the plugs about every 35k miles but i would recommend doing a FULL tune up about every 30k miles or so depending on your driving habbits, I drive about 2500 miles every 2 weeks and my car running in tip top shape. Personally i do all my own work on all my cars just because i know that i am not going to rip myself off. I have had the System Charge Failure come one a few time i just let it do its thing and it went off. Take your battery and Alternator up to autozone and have them test it. your serpt. belt could be slipping a little bit and not grabbing the pullys. I have had the problem where i blew a water line and coolent was all over the place, with the DexCool that GM requires it is a sylicone base and makes a mess everywhere. I am still finding it on my connectors, and around my electrical doohickies. Hope this helps

How much oil should be replaced


It depends on if you have the supercharged engine. Your manual will tell you for sure. If you have the non supercharged 3.8, it's just 5 quarts with a filter change, 4.6 without a filter change. A little side tip. Don't wait for your DIC to tell you when to change oil. It's not as reliable as GM wants us to believe. Don't go more than 5000 miles on traditional oil. It's cheap enough stuff that you should really shoot for 3000 mile oil changes.

Spark plugs, transmission fluid and coolant change, supercharger oil, air filter, fuel filter, tires, brakes, engine mounts, BTSI inspection and power steering fluid. Also inspect the belts, hoses, pulleys and look for wiring damage.

2004 pontiac grand prix 71000 milesis burning oil. no leaks no smoke


How many miles do you go before you have to add oil. GM actually states that one quart of oil every 2000 miles is considered normal. I personally think that one quart every 3000 miles is normal esp at higher miles. As an engine wears things such as valve seals and rings get worn and allow oil to seep past and will burn, this can be in such small amounts that you will not notice the smoke and is normal engine wear. The life cycle of an engine is considered 100k miles by the designers, even though we all know they will go far beyond that. If your car has the 3.1 or the 3.4 liter engine you may want to check in the engine coolant for signs of oil, it is a common problem for the oil to seep into the cooling system but is not usually enough to make a noticable drop in oil level. If you are only using about one qt every 3k miles or so i would not worry about it if you have had it checked for leaks already.

04 Grand Prix oil leak


if it is not leaking then it is being burned by the engine, how many miles go by before you need to add oil?, if u are adding more than one quart every 1000 miles u have piston reing problems and or valve guide seal leaks. U won't see any smoke in most cases unless you are really going through the oil, like 1 quart every 300 miles.

2007 Pontiac Grand Prix uses oil between oil changes and has a black carbon type ring around the exhaust pipe opening. Pontiac dealer told me it's normal for a 3800 V-6 to use a quart of oil in a thousand...


it is not normal for that engine to use that much oil. i know of another grand prix like yours that lost the engine and the dealer had to replace it. something is wrong with that engine. maybe talk to another gm dealer. good luck

What kind of oil for a 2004 grand prix


no regular oil will not hurt this car. I highlt recommend using a castrol 5-W30 it is tar based oil rather than wax based and will not clog your engine. You can use synthetic oil which costs much more but it is not necessary.
