#2567 of 2590 Re: 99 Grand Am Leaking Red/Pink Fluid [burdawg]
May 07, 2009 (3:54 pm)
Cousin thinks its Coolant because the fluid on the garage floor evaporated overnight. He said if it were trans fluid, there would still be a puddle. I look at the coolant tank and it was low. Just trying to figure out wear the leak could be because it has not leaked at all today. Even when driving for 15 mins. strange. But thanks for the quick reply.

Jun 10, 2009 (8:23 pm)
I have 2003 Pontiac Grand Am. The dash and tail lights stop working one day, I checked all fuses and they are ok. Stop light and blinkers work though. Read somewhere that it might be a multi switch? Anyone knows what is going on? Please help!

Whether engine running or parked and key out, parking / running lights flash randomly. Checked the micro relay..fine.. Keyless entry remote..good.. Sensor under dash defrost grill unobstructed. Dealer wants to run electrical check..$$$... Can the ALC be disabled?

#2575 of 2590 Driver's Seat Broken Power Height Adjuster
Sep 12, 2009 (10:42 pm)
The 99 thru 04 series employs a worm expanding strut driven by a nylon gear at one end that is powered by a small Fasco electric motor. Most any other manufacturer but Government Motors would make both the strut and motor available as individual service replacement parts. With GM, however, you must pay over $330 for a complete replacement seat frame with motor and strut included. It's outright gouging and it's ridiculous! The nylon gear at the end of the strut either cracks or suffers tooth shearing, whether from age deterioration of the nylon material or overuse/abuse of the power system, much like Ford power windows. Replacing the strut assembly with nylon gear seems the practical solution but GM does not provide that option. It's either live with whatever height the seat is at when the gear cracks or shears, or shell out the $330 plus labor for the sake of a 50-cent piece of nylon attached to a ten dollar worm strut! There are tens of thousands of Grand Ams with broken driver's seats desperately seeking an affordable height adjustment fix. Does anybody know of any aftermarket source for a replacement strut with nylon gear assembly?
#2576 of 2590 Ugh.. the chugging wont stop!
Feb 12, 2010 (6:38 pm)
I have a 2003 Grand Am GT.. It recently started chugging so I went through everything on what it might be even though I got screwed out of alot of money.. I have changed the fuel filter.. changed the spark plugs.. Put my car on the diagnostic and the thing that came up was my thermostat sensor which I fixed $215 later, the guy said that should fix it.. Well it didnt... I have no acceleration, and when I press the pedal it chugs.. Also it seems to be taking alot of effort for it to keep up the speed when Im approaching hills..especially with my cruise.. it shoots up to 3500 to 4000 RPMS and it wont shift down properly until Im on the other side of the hill... Please help on what I should do! Im $750 in debt with this thing so far and nothing is working!
