Yes. Or it could be a loose wiring problem... best bet would be take it to a gm dealer. If not find your fuse box and locate the fuse maybe thats bad.

Auto parts store will gladly match replacement part for your car, but how are you going the do the replacement. Mechanics may not install your purchase, as it affects profit for them!

Your problem is vaguely similar to a problem brought to me years ago which I spent a great many hours chasing - the trouble was, the fault wasn't permanent; the car would be towed in and most of the time it would start.

To cut a long story short, the fault when I eventually found it was a single female terminal in a multiway connector that was behaving like a thermal breaker.
The design of the terminal was unfortunate - it wasn't designed to be a tight fit over the male and a sort of leaf spring was stamped into it, presumably to prevent it rattling around and to help it conduct the current flow.

The current flow was sufficient to cause some warming that over time created some oxidisation of the surface that in turn caused more warming and the little leaf spring eventually retracting and returning when things cooled down.

As was often the case it was only when the boss had lost patience and found something else to interfere with that I was able to settle down, have a couple of cigarettes and do some mindless fiddling...
I noticed one terminal in the multiway connector was a slightly different colour.

The codes translate as.... (I'm assuming the first number given was a 'p' code as well).
p0010 = Camshaft Position Actuator Circuit (Bank 1).
p0700 = Transmission Control System TCS Malfunction.
p0974 = Shift Solenoid "A" Control Circuit High.
p0977 = Shift Solenoid "B" Control Circuit High.

The first code refers to the electronics controlling the Variable Valve Timing system in the engine. It has read a fault on the system that operates the valve settings in the engine.
All three of the other codes refer to issues with the electronics in the Transmission. Unless you have experience rebuilding transmissions, your safest option is to take the vehicle to a Good mechanic who knows transmissions. Messing with transmissions and the electronics for them without the correct knowledge can cause more VERY expensive problems.

It looks like the filter is just below the frame rail on the side that the fuel lines leave the gas tank and travel to the engine.

Pontiac Cars &... | Answered on Nov 19, 2020

i'm not absolutely sure but have you checked near the gas tank? A lot of them are near the gas tank.

On a lot of Pontiacs and Chevys the cabin air filter is behind the glove compartment. Usually you can pop the glove compartment out and you'll see it behind there

What kind of code reader did you use ? Need one that can communicate with all modules on the vehicle . Changing a PCM / ECM from other vehicle ( don't care if it's matches your's ) still needs to be programmed . Your best bet ,take it to a qualified repair shop .

This will be a very involved job. According the the Chilton manual, the engine must be removed to get access to the rod bearings.

Sounds like the oil pump may have failed. Depending on how long the temp gauge was in the hot range, there's a good chance that there is some cylinder head and/or block damage. If the oil pump did fail, tje most cost effective fix may be a new ir used engine replacement as the could be bearing/ crankshaft damage from lack of lubrication.

The Entertainment System on this vehicle is configured with either a base or an uplevel system. Both the base and uplevel systems contain a radio, antenna, and speakers. An audio amplifier and digital radio reception (U2K) is available with the uplevel systems. Radio data system (RDS) is standard on all radios.
The following list shows the radios available for this vehicle:
• Base Radio (U1P)--AM/FM Stereo, CD with Programmable Equalizer, and RDS
• Uplevel Radio (US8)--AM/FM Stereo, CD MP3 with Programmable Equalizer, and RDS
• Uplevel Radio (UC6)--AM/FM Stereo, Integral CD changer (ICDX) with Progammable Equalizer, and RDS

So which of these systems does your vehicle have ? If it were a bad fuse it would not work ,just like Paula said . But to just say the radio is bad , can't agree with that . Does your system have an Audio Amplifier ? That could be the problem , your best bet take it to a qualified repair shop .

Are you sure it has one? I have looked all through the manual and it is not listed anywhere. I even looked at GM parts and there is not one listed.
