SOURCE: 1997 grand prix gtp. Tire pressure/abs light

Hello! This indicates a fault with the wheel speed sensor/ABS sensor. Any major auto parts retailer can pull the details of this code (which sensor) for free, which will help you identify if the wiring is loose or damaged or if the sensor will need to be replaced. If you need to replace the sensor - you will need to replace the entire wheel bearing assembly, as the sensor is internal.

Thanks for using FixYa!

SOURCE: what kind of oil for a 2004 grand prix

no regular oil will not hurt this car. I highlt recommend using a castrol 5-W30 it is tar based oil rather than wax based and will not clog your engine. You can use synthetic oil which costs much more but it is not necessary.

2005 grand Prix oil pressure light an dinging comes on

1. Check your oil level. If oil level is not ok, correct oil level and find out why oil level was low and correct the problem. (Leaks, bad PCV, Burning oil due to severe engine wear, nobody has bothered to check it for the last 3000 miles, WAY overdue for an oil change, etc.) If oil level is ok, proceed to next step.

2. Remove the oil pressure sensor and install a manual oil pressure gauge. Run engine to verify low oil pressure. If gauge shows that the oil pressure is low, overhaul or replace engine. If oil pressure is ok, replace oil pressure sending unit and retest.

Oil capacity of 2002 grand prix

Right around 4 3/4 quarts. Use an AC Delco filter. There is a difference and this will prevent low oil pressure.

Changed intake gasket and now it won't start. It just spins like it is out of time. I replaced the timing set and it still acts the same. It is a 98 Grand Prix with a 3800 series 2 vin K

So did you replace the timing set first, or after ,it would not start after the intake was replaced. Replacing just the intake would not alter the timing components. The intake is a pretty straight forward job. Does the engine have spark? fuel pressure? The injectors should have power on one side with the key on,check one do they? All wires connected to ign coils? ground wires hooked up? Does the CK. ENG light come on with key on? have ALL fuses been checked?

No oil pressure and i just changed the oil pressure switch in a 90 grand prix

You need to put a mechanical gauge on there and check actual oil pressure...problem may not be the switch but in fact there may be no pressure. Does the engine make noise when running? Do you have the correct switch? What was the problem that caused you to replace the switch?
