a lot of work. the transmission has to be removed.
On a 2001 which is a later model grand am they use IAC(idle air control) motors so idle is ussually factory adjusted. If you are having idle problems check for common driveability porblems first (Spark, fuel, air) and if all checks out correctly then check to make sure the iac motor is operating properly. Let me kno if you need anythnig else.
Probably strut mounts or control arm bushings.
1. disconnect negative battery cable and wait 2 minutes (this disarms the airbag circuit while you work in that area). Remove the left end cover by pulling outward. Tilt steering column down to lowest position. remove instrument cluster center bezel (around radio and environmental controls) by disengaging 4 clips (2 on top and one on each side).
2. Remove 4 instrument cluster hood mounting screws. Three screws are located behind the center bezel and one screw is located at the left end of the hood. Pull on hood to disengage hood and remove instrument cluster hood. Pull instrument cluster rearward to disengage 8 clips and disconnect wiring connectors from panel. Remove instrument cluster.
Brake warning light (Canadian) in US there is supposed to be "BRAKE" overlaid on the international symbol. Looks like a brake drum with shoes.
Your problem could be one of many different things, the major problems could be: 1. If the shaking is speed related... an imbalanced tire (wheel) could be the cause. 2. You could have a bent axle. 3. Your tire casing could be separating from the tread. 4. Your tire rim could be loose. 5. You might need new shocks. 6. Your steering linkage components could be loose or worn or broken. Good Luck... these are just a few of the things that can cause your symtom.
Most likely bad tire or a wheel bent, or out of balance
You might need a new bulb.
i had the same problem and it wasnt the bulb.. i never figured it out so i ran another switch to the lights and battery... a tuggle switch
remove the top of the steering comumn , it is located in the back it is a square black box that pulls straight back and out it has 5 prongs
Engine oil 4 quarts
It has two busted gears, Either get a transaxel rebuild kit and do it yourself, Or get a new transaxel. alot cheaper to do it yourself.
Most of this is routine Maintenance with parts one would normally expect to wear out. Some, such as the Timing Belts may not have needed replacing, but I didn't want to wait for them to Break. Great Car, the most reliable vehicle I've ever had, I love it! I hope to get well over 200,000 miles with it!

We have a 1996 Breeze with 175,000 miles on it. Repairs in the past 3 years have included 2 timing belts, water pump, both oxygen sensors, and other non engine repairs such as 2 fuel pumps, wheel bearings all the way around, tie rod ends, etc.Answer
My girlfriend's Breeze had a head gasket replaced at around 44K miles, and another one at 75K. The car is at around 80K now and needs a new transmission. Sad thing is she drives it like an old woman. Throughout the life of the car we've had to replace numerous electrical sensors and components, including the VSS (vehicle speed sensor) a few times.
If you're looking for a reliable car, a Breeze/Stratus/Cirrus/Neon/Sebring are about as far as you'll get from it. We're currently selling the car to buy her a Civic as a replacement.Answer

If the clock/radio is anything like the one on the '93 Plymouth Voyager, here is how you set the clock:
First turn on the radio, then press the set button. When it shows the "P" hit the select button, and it should change to just hours. Turn the Tuner knob to forward or back to set the time you want. Hit the Select button again to go to minutes, and do the same thing with the Tuner knob. Hitting the select button a third time will save the clock settings. ..

You have a short in the wiring.
the fuel filter is located on top of the gas tank.
