Hi! I have a 2001 Pontiac Sunfire sedan. It has 127000miles. The car runs perfectly except for this wierd wiring issue that recently began. I will turn the key and none of the accessories (gages, radio, or lights) will come on, the car starts and immediately shuts off. My husband jiggles the wire and it will start, however I haven't got the magic touch like he does and really want my ... Read More
Hey everybody, I'm a sport compact enthusiast, really I'm a Toyota/Nissan guy, but alas I own this 2001 Pontiac Sunfire SE only got 74k mi. I'm going to put some work into as it continues to get older and require maintenance, until I have decent performance out of it. For starters, I put 17" Momo rims w/Tsunami N2 tires, a sport (adjustable) strut and coilover package from Mantapart.com, strut bars, beefier ... Read More
My 2001 pontiac sunfire will not shift into overdrive. The previous owners replaced the transmission, and it still will not shift into overdrive. It tops out around 50 mph at 4k-5k rpm. If anyone can help me diagnose this problem i would greatly appreciate it.
I have a 2001 Sunfire that had bumper stickers plastered directly on the trunk...right above the PONTIAC logo. In trying to remove them I ruined the paint and plastic on it. In looking at the trunk, it appears that this is a trim piece that can be removed and replaced...( This is the large plastic piece that has PONTIAC on it and also has some red reflectors on it.) The problem ... Read More
Yes it would quit often rev high before it would stall. Get your mechanic to check the wires going to the computer sounds like the same problem my son had. Sounds like one could be corroded Its worth a shot that is all that was wrong with my sons car. His car has been running fine. Hopefully it is that easy for you
Before the car would stall did it rev high while stopped or in park? I can drive the car for a few blocks then when I'm stopped(usually) it will rev high. As I try to get my car back home everytime I slow down to turn a corner or coming to a light it will stall.And I have to have the car in netural or it will just keep stalling the ... Read More
Good Morning After my husband spent about 2 weeks chasing the problem it turned out to be a wire. Apparently because the computer is located up under the front right inner fender it is a common problem in this car where if you hit say a snow bank or whatever it damages the inner fender and can leave the computer exposed to the weather and in turn causes corusin to the ...

I changed the Engine coolant temperature sensor , located under the large hose that connects from the radiator to the engine ... Read More

Everytime it gets hot in the car the gas gauge messes up....it points to the mph instead of the other way to show me how much gas it has in it... It happens almost everyday and i'm gettin tired of it...does anyone know anything about this?? Its a 2001 Pontiac Sunfire....Thanks
Folks, My 2001 Pontiac Sunfire has the identical symptoms. I have change the whole fuel and ignition systems. I've even exchanged the entire exhaust system. It ran good for two weeks. I just left it at the Wal-Mart parking lot knowing that nobody can possibly steal it. I agree with an earlier e-mail traffic stating that the Transmission Control Solenoid in the transaxle may be defective. I have worked with earlier ... Read More

I am having similar problems with my 2001 Sunfire with about 103,000 miles. I had taken it to firestone b/c the car died and wouldn't turn over at all.

Then I took it back in ... Read More
All my issues, some unresolved. [symptom of bad alternator] Twice my car has had the dash indicators completely light up and lose power in the middle of driving. Both times it was due to a dead alternator. I had it fixed the first time and the replacement only lasted four months before being replaced again. The second time, recognizing the symptom, I quickly decided to coast through a red light (4 ... Read More

On the third attempt it did make it up the hill and I parked it. I ... Read More
