Question about 1997 Pontiac Grand Am

Open Question

1997 Pontiac Grand Am

I have a broken gasket and I was reading online that I might be able to temporarily fix it with an engine sealant. Fluid from the radiator has mixed in with the engine oil so, I assume I would need to do an oil change as well as a radiator flush if I decide to try the sealant?

Recently replaced the water pump on a 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix, but it is still leaking from on top at a place someone said was the elbow, possibly leaking from the front and the back. not sure I understand...


YOU NEED TO PUT GASKET SEALANT ON BOTH SIDES OF THE WATER PUMP GASKET IF NOT GASKET WILL LEAK, ITS JUST PAPER LIKE MATERIAL COOLANT OR WATER WILL SOAK THROUGH GASKET AND LEAK.NEED SEALANT ON GASKET.

1996 Pontiac Sunfire engine shakes and acts like it wants the shut off when at stop light.


Sounds like you have a bad cylinder...
This could be due to a number of reasons...
No spark at one cylinder, due to a bad spark plug, coil, or wire.
No fuel due to a bad injector
Bad cylinder with low or no compression

I have a pontiac and i keep blowing head gasket on number one cylinder. I have installed new heads and gasket lasted about five years. I was wondering what the correct head bolt torque is for a 1995...


cylinder head bolts, step one;33 ft. lbs, second step rotate an additional 90-degrees (1/4 turn). do not put any oil or sealant on gasket. the gasket should seal itself if torqued properly.

My 1997 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP has an oil leak located on the firewall side of the engine. It's a small leak (2-3 drops a day) but very messy on my concrete driveway. How can I fix it?


Try some motor honey. It can be bought at most part stores, advanced auto, autozone, ect. It worked for my 95 Grand Am when I had a leak in my oil pan gasket. Hope this helps

Antifreeze leak


DO NOT DRIVE THE CAR until this problem is fixed! You could destroy the engine.

Many GM V6 engines of 1995-1999 had defective Upper Intake Manifold (UIM) gaskets (this is especially true for 3800 V6 engines). The antifreeze/coolant (especially orange DEX-Cool) will deteriorate the gasket material over time. If there are abnormal exhaust noises accompanying the leak, and/or the oil appears cloudy (check this immediately), you may have a blown head gasket or Lower Intake Manifold (LIM) gasket. Start with the UIM gasket.

The repair is detailed in the Haynes manual for that car ($17 at NAPA and Carquest), and (DIY) will take 5-8 hours plus a new gasket and RTV sealant (parts should be under $40 for all). A shop will charge $250-350 for this job.
