Make sure it is not set for Km
4.3 quarts ,with new oil filter
repost way way to vague give exsplanation as to what its doing wrong
A bad throttle position sensor could cause a 1999 Pontiac Grand Am GT to accelerate on its own. Another possibility is a loose connection at the idle air valve.
To tell the driver of a vehicle the speed they are currently doing.
A speedometer. If you don't have a speedometer you will have to get some one to drive beside you and tell you what speed you are doing then you can judge your speed by the tac.
Grand ams have all sorts of problems, lol! Are you having problems with the car randomly not starting? Yes the design of the ignition system is notorious for problems, state what the car is (or isn't doing) & can advise further.
Note what you theflt light is doing, then ask this question again. Also, consider tapping lightly on the accelerator pedal as you sart the car.
Mine is doing the same thing, I am going to pull the HUD unit from the dash and replace. Approx $50 on ebay.
Mine is doing the same thing.. I have to leave the key on position for exatually 10. mintues. turn key off when security light has disapeared. Then try to start and it as worked every time. (So Far). I want to know what is causing this problem? I had my Pontiac grand am for three years. Just the last 6 months it been doing this. But happening more and more
mine is doing the same thing. you have to take it to the dealer ship. they told me it would cost about $300.00 to run test and to fix everything.
more than likely it is your starter telling you "hey bud, yeah its time" My 99 was doing the same thing. Turned out to be a bad starter. Replaced it and took some pics along the way. You can see them at the following link. http://hubpages.com/hub/Starter-Removal-1999-Pontiac-Grand-Prix
I don't know why, but my car is doing this too!! it is a 2003 Pontiac grand am 4 cyl. If you get an answer, PLEASE let me know!!!
YES!! if the speedo gear is plastic, the contamination from that gear can get imbedded in the clutches and bands (if any). Doing so will cause the transmission to have more damage creating a snowball effect doing more damage to itself.
My 2001 grand prix was doing the same thing,so i took it to the mechanic shop and they told me my cv axle and ball joints needed to be changed out.Got the parts and changed them out ,problem solved,no more shaking .Thank god.Cost me about 300.00 to get all that fixed......
The best way is to buy a book on your model and see if you can do it. Then! Ask again on this sight for help when you feel confident that you know what your doing to repair the speedometer.
Have you fitted new wheels or tyres to your car? No, i havent done nothing to it although it did overheat a few days before and it said i was doing 200 and i was going about 80
Call a tow truck or find a friend who has a "jimmy" device. Or, you could, if desperate enough, break a window. But before doing all that, check the door on the other side first!! It might be unlocked.
The 2006 Pontiac GTO has 400 horsepower available. You can increase this by doing modifications to the vehicle to make it even faster and more powerful.
You were correct in doing so.
yes it can im doing one 1 right now
my car is doing the same this right now have you checked your ecm(Engine Control Computer) tha is most likely your problem
Could be a loose cable (connection on the back of the speedometer). In today's electronics on cars it's best to take it to a mechanic who knows what they are doing for the repair. You might want to save the money, but if you mess something else up trying to fix the one thing it might cost you even more.
it depends on what it is doing, does it not work at all? or does it jump around? could be the plastic speedo gear in the transmission, or it could be your speedometer itself. i have had a problem with mine and i need to replace my speedometer, the back assembly has gone bad. it jumps around. firstname.lastname@example.org
Whats the problem? cant help you unless you describe what its doing/not doing.
