Question about 1999 Pontiac Grand Am GT

1 Answer

Replacing the transmission

I have a 2dr 99 Grand Am Gt with 144,000 miles on it. I took it in to a transmission shop yesterday and they said it needs a lot of work, but wouldn't be able to tell what needs fixed without opening the tranny. proposed price was over $1400. Is it worth trying to find a used transmission and trying to install it myself? If so, where is a good place to get a used transmission, and what would be a good price?

I have a 2001 Pontiac Grand Am 3.4l automatic, 159XXX miles. Have been having a problem with hesitation. It happens at idle, cruising, or accelerating. It seems very random, some trips, it doesn?t happen...

My wife's car had a somewhat similar problem. Her car would stall out when it would idle at a stop light, but only once every couple of months. The check engine light kept comming on and the codes read something about the transmission. To keep a long story short, we took it to a transmission shop and the torque converter solenoid wasn't working properly. $1000 later the problem was fixed and we noticed the car shifting much smoother. You may have a similar problem as the torque converter helps regulate the power between the engine and the transmission and could cause slipping and cutting out. You could always have a trans. shop check it out just be prepared to fork over the cash

Where would i check the trans fluid on a 99 grand am with a 2.4 quad cam

Believe it or not, your transmission is a closed case transmission. You have a plug just above the drain plug on the transmission that you remove to check the fluid level. This is also where you service it. It is like servicing a differential on a truck. Call a transmission shop to verify. I guarantee you this is the only way how.

You have to pump fluid in until it seeps out.
