Best Answer

In general, rough idle for almost any car can be caused by plug wires, sparkplugs, injector(s) (depending on whether it's throttle body or port injected), EGR valve, burned exhaust valve or anything that the computer says is wrong. In general, if the engine is giving you any problems and you don't have any specific concerns, run a computer diagnostic test first. But if the engine has overheated, the first step should be a compression test. Good luck.

Is Pontaic 1999 Grand Prix a good car?

Decent cars, so long as they've been properly maintained and not abused. One recurring problem with both the Grand Am and Grand Prix is that power window motors have a tendency to go out, and they're not cheap to replace.
