2001 Pontiac Grand Prix Owner Comments

problem #2

Sep 112007

Grand Prix 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 86,023 miles


I own a 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix and maintain my car on a regular basis. Yesterday, after returning from a lunch trip during my work day, I parked my car in my office parking lot and a few minutes later I was paged telling me that my car was on fire. I have checked online to see if other 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix owners had a similar problem - and there are. However, the only recall that exists (not by GM) is by delphi - who manufactured the fuel pressure regulator - which I'm told the fuel could leak and result in a fire. I have contacted GM and they told me there were no recalls. I believe this fire was caused by a GM product liability.

Grand Prix

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
Vehicle was purchased on 10/8/2001, according to records- brand new vehicle had under 40 miles. On Jan 15th 2002 I was driving on freeway going 60 mph and the vehicle (died) stopped with no warning signs of its failure. Police officer assisted me to the shoulder I then waited for tow truck. Car was towed to huling bros their tech's found that there was no fuel pressure and pump was not working they replaced the fuel tank module. After the vehicle was fixed according to the tech prior to me picking up the vehicle the tech's test drove the vehicle and the vehicle ran fine. I was called to come and picked the vehicle up in the service center of huiling bros. I drove just under a mile and again the vehicle shut off (died) in the middle of an intersection. There were no signs of warning from the car. I was towed back to huling bro service station. Tech's verified it was the fuel pump again the connector to the top of the fuel pump had to be fixed again.
