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 Prix Owner Comments

problem #2

Nov 052010

Grand Prix 4 Door 3100

  • Automatic transmission
  • 160,000 miles


It starts with a miss, then the tach acts up sometimes stops working and traction off light comes on and sets engine codes. The engine codes vary from crank sensor, cam sensor, mis fire on 3 and 5. I found a bad plug wire so I replaced it with a used one and all problems went away for almost a year. A few days ago it all started over so I replaced the plug wires with a new set and did not help. I have replaced crank sensor, plugs and wire set, coil pack with electronic engine module and problem still exist, I may try replacing computer next. Any ideas

(reported on)

Grand Prix GTP 3800

  • Automatic transmission
  • 110,000 miles

Driving along the road then all of a sudden the RPM falls out and the TRAC light comes on. The engine sputters and then kicks back in after doing this for about 2 weeks the SES light finally comes on telling me there is a problem with the Crank Shaft Position Sensor...bought a new one for $30.00 and having a local Mec. put it in today hopefully it works.
