Question about Pontiac Grand Am

1 Answer

I have a 1999 Pontica Grand Am, 4 door sedan, 4 cylinder with 220,000 miles on it. Lately, when I travel over moderately rough roads, the low trc idiot light comes on then goes off & then it goes to where the ABS & Trac idiot lights come on to stay. When this happens, the car is prone to stalling out at stop signs/lights & turning corners. What's happening?

Ask your local technician to set up a fuel gauge pressure monitor so you can track it while your driving. Ask him what the normal range is so you will know when it falls below. Document it and let your Tech know. It sounds like your fuel pump is loosing Pressure.

I have a "97 Grand

it could be the brake pads are low so the wear bar is hitting the rotor telling you it's time to replace the pads, or the power steering fluid could be low and the noise is comming from the power steering pump.

Torsion bar banging sounds when traveling on moderately rough roads.

The torsion bars have rubber insulators, or mounts that are located on the frame crossmember. These mounts are prone to seperate or break.
Good luck

How do you use the the four wheel drive gear on a 1998 prado

prado has a fulltime 4wd. you can use the 4wd in any speed but preferrably stop before the shifting to the 4wd mode. if you are using an automatic transmission, put it to neutral before changing the 4wd mode. each mode depends on the surface you are travelling. on pavement the 4 low setting is an advantage for drivers who need to tow and maneuver a heavy trailer. select 4WD high on snow and for easy to moderate off-road (dirt roads, easy trails).

your probably feeling a rough idle of the engine. need a tune up?

in park the engine is not loaded down, just idling at a low rpm=rough
in drive with brake on you have put some load on motor also at low rpm=rough
in drive on the road engine is at higher rpm, = smoother

generally 4 cylinder motors idle a bit rough, especially if one spark plug is not firing right or fouled or one bad spark plug wire. tune up may fix it. if it is not stumbling real bad or stalling then you can live with it.
