The recall is NOT only for supercharged engines. Last Mon Apr 6th, I was driving to my daughters school to pick her up. I drive through the neighborhood the whole way there. Half way there, I smelled something burning. Got to a stop sign, and smoke was pouring from the front of the car. No engine lights. Nothing. I pulled the car over, turned it off, and got out to inspect ... Read More

Well, it looks as if I'm getting nowhere with Pontiac CAC. My Grand Prix GTP burned last January. My insurance company totaled it obviously. Once I found out about the recall, I contacted Pontiac CAC and have been told that there is nothing they can do for me because of 'the policy'. Been through 3 levels of their management so far with no luck.......
My car that burned was a 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GT not GTP and when I stopped the car I didn't smell ANYTHING.
i have a 2000 pontiac grand prix gt and a few weeks ago mine caught fire i drove it to the store and back home and about 5-10 min later there it was on fire. my dad bought it new and i got it a year ago. it was the best car i've had and the only car i have. i called gm and they sent it to thier insurance i ...

One of your vacuum lines is bad. In this year it's common for the line that runs by the battery and down to the vacuum reserve tank to get rubbed through. Take the battery out, and look for a fairly thin, hard plastic line. Should run by the battery and down to a ball-shaped tank under the driver's side front end of the car. Follow along it's complete path up through ... Read More
My 95 does this. I beleave its suspose to to keep power up. Only does it when I really gun it. Personally I like it. my old car the AC would drain massive power (4c) with shitty acceleration, no problem with this car.
My ac has cold air and good air flow but when I accelerate even the least bit the air flow decreases dramatically. Can anyone tell me what would be wrong or what I can replace?
The NHTSA is supposedly looking at 1999 through 2002 GTPs. Have there been pre-1999 or post-2002 GTP engine fires? This issue is also being discussed at http://www.autoblog.com/2007/02/05/nhtsa-investigating-pontiac-grand-prix-engine- -fires/#comments
The hardest part of the job was jacking the car up with a scissor jack and taking the tire off.You can't see the sensor you just gotta feel with your hand.All it took was a 10mm deep socket and ratchet and a new sensor.The first time I did it it took a while because I didn't know what I was doing but after that it's like riding a bike,you never forget.Is ...

10 min? damn my 1995 grand prix gtp was a bitch so I just took it too a shop. No easy access to it. Sucks you had it go bad again.
Thanks for info.I bought a new crank sensor and installed it in about 10 minutes.problem solved,when I took the sensor out it had a lot of oil in the connection area so it must of cracked.runs like a champ now.new wires,platinum plugs about 3 months ago.I was told that the 3.1 engine was junk but I've had the car over 2 yrs. and only prob was the crank sensor.Overall good car.Thanks ...

Have you replaced the plugs and wires? Might check the ignition coils as well.
A few months ago it stopped running and wouldn't start.A buddy of mine who is a mechanic told me to replace the crank sensor so I did.problem solved,well its only been about 3-4 months and now car is spitting and sputtering real bad.It was doing it before the crank sensor went out and now it is doing it again.Can a crank sensor go bad that quick or could it be something ...

On March 23, 2006 my 2001 Pontiac Grand prix caught fire and burned. It was somewhere under the hood, could have been the engine compartment. GM sent a so-called "expert" to check it out and supposedly he couldn't determine the cause of the fire.
Any noises along with the shakes? I would have a friend drive beside you on each side, and behind you, on a bumpy road. He should watch to see if your wheels after hitting a bump, settle right down or if they continue to bounce a few times. Have him watch all four corners, one at a time as they hit a bump at speed, at least 25mph. Bounces mean struts. ... Read More
I go over a bump in the road and the car shakes real bad, even after ive been past the bump. What could be causing this?? Shocks/struts? And what would something like that cost me to fix or could I do this myself?? Would just changing the strut cartridges work??
The date was 1996. The system is OBD II. The reason is to reduce hydrocarbon emissions to the atmosphere. Has nothing to do with safety concerns.
RichM4, they NEVER had to rebate the 1997 GP back in 1997, sold like hotcakes with sales 50% better then 1996, I remember having to wait for my 1997 GTP and actually order it, there were mostly just SE's on the lot, GT and GTP were hard to find in august 1996 the Pontiac dealer I was at today for the HUD repair, said the new 2004's are not selling that ...

<<<Pontiac's reworked midsize was a big hit from the start. Sales of the '97 model ran more than 50 percent of 1996 levels, though naturally its popularity tapered off later>>> Killing the coupe lost 20% of the Grand Prix customers... that is why the 2002 outsold the 2003. Right now the 2004 sales are behind the '03's... The 2004 will never have the sales success over the '03 like the 1997 ... Read More
