Question about 1996 Pontiac Grand Am
I have a 96 pontiac grand am i just recently had a new water pump put on the car was running fine before i had put a water pump on it the only thing is, is that it was leakin antifreeze out and running hot took it to the shop and they said it was the water pump was leaking well anyways i had the shop put this waterpump on and when they called me to come and pick it up i got there and started the car up and it was shaking really bad and hesitating and making noise it was not running like this before, the mechanic said that it could be that the time needed to be reset, so they reseted it and it still is running like **** what could this p[roblem also it is still leaking but not running hot and its leaking from the same place as first
I suggest you go to a mechanic that knows what they're doing. You could have a gasket that needs to be replaced. I have a 2000 grand am and the water pump went. I went back to my mechanic three times because my car was still overheating and leaking. They finally figured out I needed a gasket replaced. I also had the timing chain replaced because my car was shaking they found that the piece that holds the timing chain was broke so they had to replace that too. My car doen't shake anymore. Maybe something is busted that controls your timing chain. Hope all this info helps.

You might not like this but you need a fuel pump. my car did the same thing, now it runs great! take it and get the fuel pressure checked to find out....
