You may want to check your battery. Take it to auto zone and have them do a free diagnostics test. Mine needed a new battery. (Make sure it's powerful enough too)

Can E85 fuel be used in a 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix?

The 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix is not E85 compatible. The easiest way to verify off hand is to check with either a website such as or to locate the VIN number (generally in the driver door or door frame, or the driver's side of the dashboard through the windshield) and identify the 8th digit of the VIN which is the engine code, and call the local Pontiac dealership's service department and provide them with that information, as well as the size of the engine, and they should be able to tell you right away exactly what fuel your vehicle can run. But again, as my knowledge goes, the 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix is not compatible. I did however notice that some of the General Motors cars were indeed compatible, so you may want to go ahead and run your information past Pontiac directly.

Where is idle air control valve located on Pontiac grand am?

My Pontiac Grand Am is stalling after it gets warm - about 15 to 20 minutes. I can let it set for 30 minutes and it will start back up until it gets hot again. I have trouble shot everything with the exception of the brain box and the IAC valve. Where is the IAC valve located? What do I need to do to change it? if this is what your car is doing, have you checked your ignition module. i had a grand prix that did the same thing. it would run for 5 to 10 miles then just die for 30 minutes till it cooled. something about how when it got hot it expanded and lost contact with the coil packs and when it cooled it contracted and you would get a good spark on the coil packs. try that and see what happens.

What is the lifetime of 2005 Pontiac Grand Prix?

I do not own a Pontiac Grand Prix, but am looking into buying one. My father in-law, who is a dealer, told me that they are very reliable and if the maintenance is kept up, they'll run practically forever. There seems to be no major trouble spots in Consumers Guide Automotive, which reinforces that they are very reliable. MSN Autos indicates that it has infrequent problems (the best rating) on every listing. This again reinforces that they'll "run forever". So what is the lifetime? If I get one, I'll be trying for 200,000+ miles.

What if your 2003 Pontiac grand pr wont start after you jumped it and drove it around for fifteen minutes came back shut it off and tired to start it again and it wont turn over is this a fuse problem?

First of all, if the battery was low enough you had to jump start it, 15 minutes isn't nearly enough to recharge it. You either have a bad battery or a bad alternator. Either of which you can have tested at a parts store.

It will depend on the engine size. For a 4-cylinder, expect a timing chain to cost anywhere from $40-60, depending on the brand and the store. For a V6, the chain will cost in the ballpark of $35-55. Again, price will vary depending on specific brand and which store you call.

Will a Chevy 502 fit in a 66 Pontiac gto judge?

There is no such thing as a 1966 GTO Judge. This model was available in the model year 69, 70, and 71. Also the engine will fit in the engine bay, however all the mounts with need to be changed. Adapt mount kits are available from Summit Racing I believe. Also, depending on which transmission you intend on using, the engine will NOT bolt up to a Pontiac trans, however, again, adapt kits are available. Ask for a B-O-P adapter (Buick-Olds-Pontiac).
