Grand Am 6-cyl

  • 105,000 miles


This problem is been happening for a few months and I have taken my Pontiac Grand Am 2004 to different mechanics with not luck..one day driving to work early morning my car sitting for 8hrs didn't want to crank or start...battery was dead so I replace it...my car start but after driving for 15 min while driving engine shut off. Mechanics have check and changed fuel pump and filter, water pump, crank shaft sensor, temperature sensor, sensor behind alternator, fuel pressure check and regulator is new, thermostat change.I have spend hundreds of dollar between parts and labor.I was really happy with this vehicle but the quality of american cars is something to consider before buying one.if there is any fix known in this site I need to know, I have a family and don't want to loose it in a highway in a accident.
