Question about 1999 Pontiac Grand Am GT

2 Answers

99 grand am gt ticks when stated but just for a couple seconds, not an engine tick but more like something trying to engage and cant. coughs, chugs, spits, sputters, whatever you wanna call it, and the tach goes crazy for a couple minutes when you first start driving then the abs light and the brake light come on and it runs fine after that but still hesitates once in while.

    the tick goes away as soon as the abs light come on and then runs fine with no ticking but no problems with the brakes or speed sensors or anything

This is a faulty ABS Module. Have the ABS module checked or replaced.

Hi without actually listening to it , it sounds like to me something is shorting, its electrical, try checking the earth's around the engine/motor especially the one on the starter, and also the main earth from the body to the engine/motor also the main battery terminals they might have come loose...hope this helps

if its a ticking noise then its probably a lifter noise from age and mileage or none scheduled maintenance. on your next oil change you can try running an oil system cleaner through your engine but this is not something to be overly concerned about.

Sounds like a rotating electrical device not connected to the drive belt, like a rad fan. Not sure if this engine has a vacuum pump, but that could also be what's making the noise.

Second opinion needed.

Based on your wallet and second opinion..used engine replacement. They fetch around $500.00 to $800.00....think + $600.00 for install.

My 95 neon won't start. it makes a single ticking noise when i try to start it but only when it's in neutral.


the tick is the starter relay applying power to the starter. 3 possibilities
1 - your battery is so dead it cant turn the starter once it engages the engine
2 - your battery terminals are so corroded they can't pass enough current to start your car
3 - the starter windings are shorted out and need replacing

>>> if the car can be jump started it's not #3, if you can put a volt meter on the batter and it reads between 12-14v then it's most likely not #1

try removing the hazard flasher, if the clicking persists try the drl relay, unless you can isolate what is ticking the only way to find it is to disable one circuit at a time
