It is a common problem, and I found two possible answers. The ignition plunger in the ignition switch or the Park release solenoid located in the center console. I've heard that when the solenoid sticks it prevents your key from being released. I have not fixed mine yet, I just use the inside of a ball point pen to release the plunger by sticking it in the access hole under the ignition. Try spraying the tumbler with powdered graphite. This can be a common problem with the grand prix it has to do with the interlock with the gear selector. There is a safety feature that prevents the key from being removed while the car is in drive. This can become defective and not allow the key to be removed at the appropriate time. hope this helps. "G"
I had the exact same problem with my 2000 grand prix gt, you need to replace the gear box assembly.
Most newer automatic transmissions do not use a dipstick.
no there was never stick shift in a in the fwd 3.8 grand prix but there is a way to run a stick shift in the car without it being very costly......the chevy cavalier or pontiac sunfire manual 5 speed would work......of cross you will need to do some modification with the pcm but other than that it is a pretty simply procedure for any basic automotive tech.
if i remember right 5 quarts put 4 in then check your dip stick
there is not a dip stick in that car it is a sealed system. it only has a fill cap on the drivers side of the engine under exhaust manifold behind the airbox assembly its a red cap
We have a 5 speed Pontiac grand am we were told that we need to change the transmission fluids we didn't know we had that. The question is do we have one and how much will it cost us.
moisture. if it isn't much i wouldn't worry. if theres alot you prob blew a head
The ignition tumblers are part of the cylinder , they are internal and are what differentiate the key cuts. They do occasionally stick and bind the ignition cylinder
drums should pull off with out any adjustment, you may have to perswade them, use a heavy perswader. sometimes drums are corroded and stick to the hub.
tranny dip stick is located right at back of engine red handle just about center at back Depends on the engine. Some do not have a dip stick and you check it at the transmission. Open the plug and check with finger for fluid.
because its a ford
On my 96 Pontiac Grand Am, the water pump is on the left hand side towards the front of the car. By the oil dip stick, and the place you put water in the car at. Its in between the two. You should see the clamp and the top of the hose, the as you look at it, it goes downwards. I just learned where it was myself, I hope that helps everyone else wandering.
It could be that something in the pedal is bent/broken. More than likely the cable is binding. I'd replace the cable if nothing else is visibly causing the problem.
it has a sticky substance that is causing it to stick to the floor hope thats what you are looking for
I have a 1999 Grand am se and it dont have a dipstick but it do have a red transmission fluid top on the right side of the 3400 sign that could be unscrewed but it don't have anything on it to check the fluid but you could stick your finger in it to see if its anything in it
Electrons are tranferred to the stick, causing it to take on a negative charge
First, stick the entire key into it to the ignition and start the engine. When you stick it in, there will be two lights that will either flash or stay solid around it. This will help you to find the second key hole in the 2013 Altima.
You have to stick the key in the ignition, hold the lock button on the inside of the door, and turn the car ignition on and off, then let go of the lock button on the inside of the door, and press the lock button on the key. If you purchased the key remote online, you should have gotten instructions. If you need a new one, go here: www.keyless-remotes.com
I had this problem, the stick-shift was not fully in the 'park' position try and jiggle the stick.
put on a new PCV valve.
Yes, a bad ignition condenser will keep a motorcycle from firing. A bad ignition condenser might also have caused the points to stick together and burn up.
What is your question
left side of the block, back of the oil dip stick.
I have a 1999 Potiac Grand Am SE, and I cannot find the transmission dip stick to check the transmission fluid.
