I own a 2000 pontiac sunfire 2.2L. The check gauge light comes on after I fill up and the gas gauge takes a very long time to go from low to full. I have also noticed a decrease in my fuel mileage recently as well and just a general rough idle. I am thinking maybe fuel pump is potentially going out or perhaps i just need to replace the gas cap. ... Read More
I have a 2000 pontiac sunfire and it's obviously giving me problems. first and most threatening is the fact that it stopped shifting. Around 20 mph it revs at around 1800 rpm and 30 at 2500 rpm. it started after hitting a pot hole in my works parking lot. i took it to a shop and they replaced a fuse and it was good again. hit another pot hole going down ...

My wife has a 2002 sunfire we had to replace the relay switch twice I would start there.
My father has a 2000 Pontiac Sunfire and the engine cooling fan stopped working! Any suggestion?
What you're hoping for just is not possible in the real world. Every change you make to the motor has a downside in another area. The real power increases are made by pushing more fuel/air mixture into and pulling more burned gases out of the motor. Now I think you are smart enough to be able to understand that pushing more fuel into and pulling more gases out of a motor ... Read More
Ok...here goes, i own a 2000 pontiac sunfire...the other day i left my lights on...killed the battery...tried a jump car would NOT turn over. I bought a new battery but the car will not start, has plenty of gas..used liquid starter and the car attempted to start...im thinking fuel pump? coil pack? stupid ass mechanic wont get back to me...
The main problem is we have now replaced the Catalytic Converter 2 times now in this care. One time in Dec 2008 and just today. You can be driving the car and all of a sudden it starts to spudder then will shut off, the weird thing is it will start right back up? We had to have the Catalytic Converter replaced this time so it would pass inspection, we were ... Read More
My 2000 Sunfire heater has only worked on #4 & #5 settings for the past 2 years. Rear defrost all of sudden stopped and now my heater is not working. I found a blown fuse and replaced it but it still blows. Disconnected blower fan and union and fuse still blows. Went to bone yard and replaced the heater switch and the fuse still blows (without being connected to the blower ... Read More
Seriously, I would go with the ECM/PCM theory first. Don't be afraid of this, because dealers will make you think it will cost a fortune to get one. Not true, http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2000-Pontiac-Sunfire-Engine-Computer-ECM-Programm- ed_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQhashZitem35a72ce64aQQitemZ230438004298QQptZMotorsQ5fCarQ5fT- ruckQ5fPartsQ5fAccessories $83 shipped on ebay, and already flashed to your vin number.

Some of y'all might be interested in this, as I posted about it awhile back- this is the instructions direct from the manufacture in relation to the anti-theft reset problem I had- and everyone else has probably run into by now. You can go back and see how long ago we fixed my problem. I'm up to 177,000 miles now and I love my car!!! I wouldn't take anything for it ... Read More

Just did a head gasket, waterpump, plugs and wires. I flushed the cooling system which took quite a bit of time(45 min.). The vehicle was running the entire time and seemed normal. The next day I started it up and it ran fine until it reached normal opperating temp, then stalled out and would refire. After several hours I rechecked and it started fine, and again stalled when it got warm. ... Read More
Just had the same headlight problem on a 2000 sunfire. There is a common ground underneath the battery, bolted to the chassis. That particular ground is for all of the lights in the front of the vehicle and the washer pump. The car I was working on had a lot of corrosion on the connections. I cleaned it up and the problem was solved.
I have the exact same problem with my 2005 Pontiac Sunfire. Did you ever get your problem resolved and if so what was the problem?
When you had the spark plugs replaced, did you do them yourself? If you replaced them yourself, did you gap them? These cars use platinum spark plugs , which are usually about $6.25 each. They are supposed to be gapped already but don't rely on that. I bought a set that wasn't gapped. Get a gapper, usually about $1.00. take each spark plug out one at a time and REMOVE ONLY ...

This may be a solution. I have a 1996 Sunfire, 2.4L, manual transmission. Although it never stalled it would buck and hesitate when trying to accelerate. Turns out the ignition coil went bad. The spark plug could be seen arcing with the cover off. The brand new replacement was bad, as was the brand new replacement after that. The one from the salvage yard is working fine and the only problem ... Read More
Just bought a 2000 pontiac sunfire SE last week, lucky me. Got it for a pretty cheap price, especially since it has 160K on the odometer. Runs fairly sound for the mileage and the engine is in check. However, aside from routine repairs like getting a couple blinkers replaced, I have found that my instrument cluster panel (i.e. all the guages) does not light up, at all. Additionally, neither does the ... Read More
I have had a 2000 pontiac sunfire coupe for nearly a year now. It began giving me trouble from the time I bought it, which was all anticipated since it had over 150K. The panel cluster and for that matter ALL lights were not working within the car. I had to get the pontiac dealer to reprogram the computer and now the lights have been working ever since. However, not two ... Read More
I am so glad I discovered this site. My Husband/I were going nuts trying to find out why our 2000 Sunfire (Sunny) was stalling. We just spent $628.00 for Injector kit, BG throttle body service at a Pontiac dealer because we thought maybe they would have some idea since they work on them all the time. They also said our water pump was leaking so after quoting us ANOTHER price of ... Read More

I have a 2000 sunfire that will not start. I thought it was the starter but I replaced that and nothing it still wont start. when I turn the key all the dash lights come on, the fuel pump turns on but nothing afterthat. I have no clue what this is can anybody help me????
I have a 2000 Pontiac sunfire that the igntion broke and I removed the lock and tumbler and can get the car to turn over but it wont stay running and the theft system shuts the car down anyone know how I can by pass this system so I dont have to buy the whole new lock set up
The problem on the 98 was a ground next to the battery. It was loose and all the warning lights came on and it wouldn't start. I fixed the ground and everything works fine EXCEPT that the ABS and AIRBAG lights won't go off. The 2000 that was dying at 65mph turned out to be the fuel pump. Anyone have any ideas on how to get these lights off? It won't ... Read More
HI i also have the same problem I also have 2000 sunfire and i have all the same light on (abs, trac off service) I was wondering if you got it fix. I been told that it might be the ECBM. I had it scanned one of the code that came out said LOST ECBM.
Thanks for the response. On the 1998, that had all the warning lights, I found that the ground was bad. Once I fixed it, the car started up fine. Just the AirBag light stays on now. On the 2000, its one the side of the road now. It drives and runs as smooth as can be, never sputtered or ran rough. But, crusing again at 65mph, the engine just died. It ... Read More

When gas prices went up, I bought two Sunfires, a 1998 5 speed, and a 2000 Auto. Last week, I started the 98 and started off to work. All the warning lights came on and the RPM gauge stopped working. When I got it home, I turned it off and restarted it. It would start and then die. So I let it sit and started driving my son's 2000. Today I'm ... Read More
Pontiac sunfire 2000 When I start the car and start to give it gas the car sounds like it is an electric car. This whirring sound is more of an annoyance than a real problem. What can I check...better yet what should I check? THanks
30 Amp Fuse in Engine Compartment blows as soon as power is turned on. Fuse in passenger compartment ok! Disconnected blower motor, resister and same happened. Replaced with a new relay...same problem. Replaced switches in Dash with one from scrap yard same problem. Tried new resister...same problem. Anyone know of where the short might be?

I know this is an old post ... but I'd like to try and find a root cause. I have a similar probelm with a 2000 Sunfire. 2000 Pontiac Sunfire. The climate control fan only works on meduim high and high. The blower will not switch between feet and face anymore. Common problem? Mason
Can i swap the dual exhaust from a Sunfire GT on to my 2000 Sunfire SE 2.4l?
where is and how do i change the thermostat on a 2000 pontiac sunfire 2.2 eng?
I think it's fairly safe to say most Sunfires are JUNK! I really liked mine (mainly the body style) when I first got it. Since 2000, I've had the same power window worked on FIVE TIMES, heater blower, wipers, radio, car alarm, and now the flasher's out and I can't even find it to replace it! After four Pontiacs in a row, NO MORE!
Hi, I have a 2000 Sunfire. Sometime back I noticed that the rear speakers weren't working. Later the same day they started working. Then only one side would work. Then both again, then neither. I had the Extended Warranty at the time so I took the car to the Pontiac house. When I picked the car up the Service Mgr. said that one of the rear speakers had a short in ... Read More

I had bought a set and put them in but they were two long, went back to the dealer and they didn't have any, i looked all over and all they had was the long ones. They said they don't no why this is.

I have a 2000 Pontiac Sunfire, that has been having starting problems for about 3 weeks. The car started having an error message, "locked stereo" message and all my dash board lights showed up. I then had it sitting for about 6 days, and then it wouldn't start. Finally got it started and it drove perfectly fine with no error messages for about two days. Then when out in the morning ...

I have a 2000 Pontiac Sunfire 4-door. The problem I am having is that when I push down on the passenger side fender there is a knocking sound. I thought first maybe it was the strut mounts which I changed with no effect. I had the rear end checked by my dealership and the only thing they came up with was a bad muffler hanger. That was replaced and it still ... Read More
I don't know if this will help, but in my 2004 Chevy Cavalier, the fuse box is located on the driver side of the dash- the very left. That side is a removable cover.. I don't know if it is like that in Sunfires, though.
I have a 2000 Pontiac Sunfire GT with the LD9 2.4l lemme see, where to start, bought it year and a half ago it drove NIICEE for 2 months.. then the motor blew. had to take my warranty company to court and finally won and got a new motor over a year later FINALLY get it back. drive it home, very nicely, not over 55 and over 4000 rpm, then next ...

My coworker has a 2000 Pontiac Sunfire coupe. His tailight bulbs are both burnt out and he replaced it but its not working. The directionals work, but nothing when he steps on the brake (only the 3rd brake light works). I'm not familiar with the car and can only find the fuse box in the engine bay. My question is where is the fuse box located at for the rear lights? ... Read More
I have a 2000 Pontiac Sunfire and do not have an owners manual for it. I noticed today that i did not have any directional and my fuse was not blown so i was told it was the flasher but i don't know where it is located on the car. I believe that it is in the bottom of the fuse box but need some clarification.
