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.

2001 Pontiac Grand Am Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 082015

Grand Am LX 2.4L L4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 99,995 miles


Have taken it to 3 different mechanics, including a Chevy dealer. They all said it was a bad fuel pump, and charged $800 +/- to fix it. The car runs ok for a month or 2 then the exact same problem occurs, mainly on hot days. It will restart a few days later, then the problem reoccurs. This problem has happened about 10-15 times, and has rendered the car extremely unreliable.

When we take it back to the mechanics, they say they can fix the problem unless its not running when we bring it in. Once we drove it to a dealer, who had previously replaced the fuel pump, and it wouldn't start for them! They called 2 days later, and said it was running now but couldn't figure out the problem! HELP! Anyone! Thanks, Ron
