Intermitten non start on 1996 grand am, after sitting starts no problem.
The most likeyl cause is a faulty fuel pressure regulator, when the regulator diaphragm fails the vehicle is initially hard to start after sitting awhile, no fuel pressure bleeds down and needs to built back up before starting. An easy test is to removed the vacuum has at the regulator, if fuel is present, the regulator is defective.
My 96 grand Am leaking bad
those are 2 hoses an inlet and outlet for your heater.take a look inside the car at the carpet and see if there is anti freeze.the heater core can leak,and then run down the hose,but you may be lucky and just the hose is no good.they are quite stiff to take off,you have to twist them as well as pull.go slowly,damage to the heater core can result otherwise.the heater core is mounted on the firewall and the entire dash must be removed to replace it.if you do cahnge it,make sure there is a ground strap added from the heater pipes to ground.it prevents electrolysis from the dissimilar metals.

My 96 Pontiac Grand Am won't turn over at all
Click on the link for starter motor. Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good, not just at the battery, the other end also. At the starter motor, two voltage circuit, One comes from the battery, hot all the time. The other goes hot with key in the crank position. Use a test lite and check voltage on both. The starter motor grounds through the engine block. Like I said, use a test lite to check. Any testing at the starter motor, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and parking brake is set.
If you think it is a starter issue, you can remove the starter, lay it on the ground, use jumper cables properly from charged battery to starter motor, at the least, it should kick out the drive gear and spin.
If you have to get under vehicle for testing starter or removing, there are safety issues. Safety is your responsibility.

96 Grand Am, with drum brakes,o I need to use dual angle shims.
yes it is necessary
yes you will need a rear end alignment
professional shops do that alignment before a front end alignment as it affects the front alignment results
no -the part will be available from the professional shop doing the wheel alignment as they should have a selection so that they can get the adjustment correct
so now that the bearing has been replaced, go to a professional wheel aligning shop, show them the bit and ask them to do a full alignment
96 Grand Am Drivers Front Floor Wet Only
Sounds like you may have a issue with the heater core its located under the dash and when they leak crack they have to be replaced they leak on to the floor and cause you to loose your heat
1996 grand am 3.1 wet floor on drivers side?
Either your AC drain is clogged or the heater core is failing. Does your heat work well and blow hot air? If so, it's likely a clogged AC drain (although a bad heater core could be the issue). If it does not, your heater core is shot (replacement involves removal of the dashboard).
Grand Am 4 cyl. Car - Fan does not turn on
there is no computer to turn the fan on. it works on a thermal switch. so you have a relay to the fan. when the temp sensor gets hot it connects the circuit to the relay and then the fan is on. vary simple. and it works when the car is still hot but the key has been turned off till the switch cools off or some have a timer so it does not run for ever. so good guess is the temp sensor for the fan could be bad if the fan is working.
