Question about Pontiac Grand Am

1 Answer

I have a 2002 Pontiac Grand Am. It make a horriable noise my kids even hate to ride in it. I have taken it to 3 different shops and the say a new motor. They don't really look at the engine just listen at the sound. I have a feeling its the timing chain but i have no clue how to even access it. Do you possibly have a diagram to show me what parts to take off?

2002 Grand Prix: I just had my oil changed in my Pontiac 2008 Grand...

To reset "CHANGE OIL" light, turn the ignition switch to the run position without starting the engine. Fully depress and release the accelerator pedal 3 times within 5 seconds. and wait for the light to flash. Check your manual it maybe slightly different. Real easy fix.

My 04 pontiac grand am started a fast clicking

Smoke coming from the steering column is definitely not a factory option. Likely you are developing a short inside that needs to be checked. Try to find what's making the noise as that may give you a good clue to which wires are involved in the problem. Smoking will cause the insulation on the bad wire to become soft and it will look different than the others. Obviously I'm not there,so I can't tell you which are involved, you need to take a good look or get it to a shop ASAP!!!

1999 Grand am gt chirping noise

Certain brands (cheapo) of serpentine belt will do this. It is because the new belt is thinner than the old belt. This causes reduced spring tension by the belt tensioning device. Other possible problems are a bad belt tensioner, driving through deep water and getting the belt wet while driving or a defective crankshaft harmonic balancer assembly.
I HATE Dayco brand belts, because they do this a lot. I would have the shop inspect the parts mentioned above. If they are OK, tell them you want a new belt (for free).

Humming noise

The hub bearings are going bad and that is what is causing the humming noise

Blown fuse

Probably a shorting out directional lamp socket. May be the intermittent problem you're having. It's like taking a kid to the doctor's...They always get better before actually SEEING the doc...If one of the directional housing seals are bad, it may have allowed the socket to corrode enough to ground to power. Check the fronts first.
