Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

2000 Pontiac Grand Am Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 052008

Grand Am SE 3.4L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 105,000 miles


Brought the car in 2002 from a relative. Never had any problems UNTIL last year the heating problem started. Replace the head casket and intake casket. NOW this year the security light has been a problem. All of my dash lights would light up,blinking on and off and I swore that a UFO was above us causing the problem. I wasn't that lucky. I too had to sit and wait it out until it would start. Well the ABS, check engine soon,trac off light and ANOTHER CHECK ENGINE SOON LIGHT turned on,. I didn't know that I was lucky to have 2 check engine lights. Anyway, I had the oil change and from there it has been non stop. The pads , rotors,cv joints,struts,and springs all has been changed in one week. Now that the underneath is all shinning and new the engines decides it wants some attention too. So let's start with it overheating and overheating and overheating. We installed a new thermostat, overheats still, new water pump, overheats still, new sensor, STILL OVERHEATING. Had a compression done while it was hot and they said it wasn't the heads or now they want to do the same test when it cold. So here's the problem THE FAN DOESN'T WORK that keeps the engine cool and can;t figure out the problem but it overheats and there's no water in the oil, no coolant on the engine. So now I own a new, used car that I can;t drive.BUT I SURE DOES LOOK PRETTY. Probably will set it in the yard and plants flowers around it for decoration. Then I found out another thing . There isn't a way to check to see if your transmission oil is ok. I was told that the reason being that you would have to take it to the dealer ship to have it done. If someone knows the answer to my problem it would be appreciated. Thanks
