#1 of 980 Grand Prix,any recent troubles?
Sep 21, 2002 (12:37 pm)
Hallo,I have been owner of Pontiac Grand Prix`98 for a year and half now and with 68000 km I haven`t had no problems till few months ago.Then I had problem taking out key from ignition.If I would wait couple of minutes I would hear "click sound" somewhere in driving wheel and not until then I would be able to take out the key.
Several mechanics took a look into this matter,but no one was smart enough to solve a problem.Last of them even changed ignition tumbler,module,electric release and did coding,but unfortunately for me and my CDN$400, I still have the same problem.If anyone knows how to deal with this,please let me know.
#2 of 980 why is my transmission so hard to get fix.

Hello all. I have had my 1995 grand prix for 3 years now and the wife just loves it. But we just had the transmission go out and have been trying to get some one to fix it for the past 4 months. they want $1800.00 to fix this trans, that is alot of money. We can not find a used trans any where. has any one else had this problem?
the car will go forwards in 1st and 2nd but not in drive or Overdrive. I hope this does not happen to any of you, it's not fun.

#4 of 980 Leaking Grand Prix!!!
Oct 16, 2002 (11:58 am)
I have a 1999 Grand Prix SE which is now taking on water during rainstorms. I previously had a 15 year old car with this problem, but this car is 4 years old! The water is leaking in on the front passenger side floor, coming down the slanted foot rest (whatever it's called). What could have happened? Is this easily fixable? Whatever the outcome, it's GOODBYE PONTIAC.

Do you happen to be using the AC during these rain storms? Do you get water in the floor with AC on and its not raining? A common problem for these vehicles is that the drain from the AC coil will get plugged causing the condensate from the coil to drain into the passenger side floor. Just something else you might want to check into.
#6 of 980 Leaking water

No, I'm not running the AC and never had a problem when it was running. I read in the other GP forums that others have had this problem (other makes also)so it's not just me. Something about the evaporation unit???...

I own a 2000 Grand Prix and love it! I bought it brand new and it has never been in the shop, except for normal maintence
#8 of 980 leaking water
Oct 22, 2002 (6:01 am)
I took my 1999 GP SE to my mechanic - there was no clog in the drainage tubes, and hosing the car down did not produce another leak. All of the seals were intact. So how did the water get in? Does it take a specific kind of windy rainstorm? I'll have to wait for the next storm...
#9 of 980 Fuel Injector

For 4 years, not one ounce of trouble. But now I've had the injectors replaced 4 times in 6 months. Thank goodness for the extended warranty.
