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 Prix Owner Comments

problem #2

Nov 052008

Grand Prix GTP 3.8L V6 Sc

  • Automatic transmission
  • 150,000 miles


Wasn't sure if the injector was bad or because of the Maf sensor ( showing low input ). swapped the #3 injector with #1 and after running the car, DTC code showed up #1. I knew then that the injector was bad. also had to replace the Coolant Temp sensor. Been a little over a month and today, the car cut off on my Daughter. after checking the Code, it now shows a high input on the MAF sensor. What a Pain !!!

My service engine light keeps coming on and off and blinks. I've had it at the deal multiple times and had several diagnostic tests. I have had my catalytic converter replaced twice, 6 O2 sensors replaced; I have had it at the dealer 4 or 5 times with the same answer, O2 sensor. My check engine light is still on and I think it might be related to much bigger problem.. See my other complaint under transmission.
