It's possible that your oil pressure pump isn't working correctly.

I went to drive my 2001 pontiac grand am se and the low coolant light came on, i was not even a mile home so turned around , pulled into driveway oil light came on i shut car off open hood and oil w


make sure your plastic coolant container mounted on inside right fender is at least half full. Keep your eye on the temp gauge and make sure the car doesn't overheat. These sensors are very touchy and sometimes cause a fault when actually there is no real problem. Also make sure you didn't knock loose the oil pressure sending unit connector, located near the oil filter. Happy Motoring!

99 grand prix, oil level light comes on when first started then after shut off and restart it will not come on for the rest of the driving time ie, running errands


oil drains to pan then takes a few seconds to refill filter upon starting.
It takes a few hours to bleed down like overnight.

How do i reset the oil change light? 99 grand am se 6cyl


That light should reset itself after you changed the oil .If you have changed the oil and it doesn't reset ,try disconnecting the batter for about 5 mins. check your milage, see how many miles you normally drive before that light normally comes on. That is so, if that light dosen't come on ,you will know its time to change the oil. If that light doesn't come on at the right amount of miles,have your oil changed at the dealer and ask them to check the oil change warning light .If they find nothing wrong ,no charge . This warning light is fairly new ,in the old days people just guessed ,its about time to change the oil !

I have 99 grand prix, the motor is ticking and there's a symbol on the left hand side of the gauge that looks like fliter what does that means


if it is this

Than it either means you are out of oil, have no oil pressure, or the oil sending unit is bad.

Since you hear an unusual noise from the engine I would bet that it is either out of oil or there is not enough oil pressure to lubricate the engine. Either way it should not be driven until the oil level is checked. If low add oil until the dipstick reads full. If you have added four quarts than the oil pan was empty and the lack of oil was causing the light to come on. Start the vehicle. Is the light out and the noise gone?

Take a peak under the car to see if you can see oil dripping. If it is do not drive until until the source of the leak has been found and repaired.

My 1999 grand prix stalls and dies at stops.


My Pontiac Grand Prix is also a 99, it has 216,+ thousand miles on it, it runs great, idles good, I need to replace the oxygen sensor tho as it shuts off on me while driving or sometimes coming to a stop. You might try checking the fuel filter and pump as well.

My oil light is on I cant find anything wrong I need to reset the oil light


if oil light is on, you need to change your oil. or at least the car things you need to change it according to the last time the oil light was reset. check manual on how to reset light. on 99 caravans, i belive it has to do with the radio or the clock/calander display on the roof.
