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.

Grand Prix 2.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 140,000 miles


Driving my 02 Grand Prix 2.4, starts ok but a minute later dies while I'm driving. I change shift from D to N and start engine again and I can be able to drive, minutes later, car dies again, repeating the procedure again and starts one more time. Any ideas?

This car has been a nightmare since I bought it used 06/26/14. Filled up tank, went home, parked for 4 hours, went to store but couldn't drive it home because it ran maybe 2 minutes then engine shut down. I attempted to start it several times to no avail. The gas gauge says full but low fuel light on.
