Hi,there. I would suggest you do a compression test to verify that the cyl head was installed correctly.If the compression is good,i would check for codes stored in the computer and go from there.Good Luck!!!

Have a 1989 pontiac grand prix 3.1, that runs like crap when warmed up. Pops n cracks, dies. & re-starts on its own. It will die when ur sitting there in gear with foot on gas n other foot on brake....

From what you are saying this problem is when you have your foot on the brake. If that is the case remove and blank of the brake booster vacuum hose and see if the problem persists. If not then the fault will be in the brake booster allowing air into the manifold and up setting the air/fuel mixture and running too lean

Do you have to lift the motor on a Pontiac grand prix 6 cyl. to get to the back freeze plug that is leaking oil?

if you have a freeze plug leaking oil you've got major problems....freeze plugs or expansion plugs are for engine coolant only, they are there in case the coolant freezes it will pop out one of those plugs before it cracks open the engine block. at least in theory. you should probably start with the valve cover gaskets and then do upper and lower intake gaskets...

2003 Pontiac Grand Prix SE 6 Cyl - Cooling Fan Not Operating

the fan motor could just be bad, you can test this by removing the fan and connecting a wire to each terminal and to a battery. the wires hooked up one way will spin the fan and the other way will spin the fan backwards so you cant hook it up wrong. I hope that helps you out!
