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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2000 Pontiac Grand Am Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 262009

Grand Am LE 2.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 105,000 miles


The car is great when it works right. My daughter bought it last February & this is the only real problem with the car other than the usual PM repairs, brakes wheel bearings etc. But when it just plain won't start out of the blue it can be a real pain in the ass!! especially when she doesn't live at home.

It doesn't show a security light, it just turns over and won't start!! I can hear the fuel pump and occasionally smell gas, but no fire.

HELP. any ideas?
