I ended up having to replace the manifold gasket,as well as the headgasket again. The mechanic told me the price of the manifold gasket,also explained the the reason for the high price. It's been 10 months since that repair and now its leaking again!Once again it sits in my driveway until I can afford to get it fixed AGAIN. Only if I lived in San Diego county I would bring it to Baja California and make it very available for the theifs there to steal it,as they strip the cars then bring them to a remote area and burn them.Unfournately,I live in central Illinois. am not sure if you were aware of this recall on the 99 Grand Ams,but apparently there was one in the month of March of the year 2007.It was for the fuel system.I know I never got a notice about this.I just happen to find out by going on lemon cars.com.<

Can anyone tell me where the thermostat is located on a 99 Grand Am? For some reason, water is leaking out as fast as I put it in, but I can't find a leak that severe. Bought a Haynes manual for this car and it gives only vague directions at changing the thermostat. I can't change what I can't locate. Can anyone give me some info?

It's in the housing where the upper radiator hose connects to the engine block. Why do you think the thermostat is the problem, and where is the visible leak at? If more coolant is disappearing than is visibly leaking out, then it could be leaking internally in the engine. Also check for wetness on the carpet below the heater core.

#88 of 91 heater control issue on 94 grand am GT
Jun 21, 2009 (3:57 pm)
my 94 Pontiac grand am GT has an issue with the heater control.
problem is, no matter what i set the control to, air will flow through every vent; top, bottom, and defroster.
I already went ahead and replaced the heater control as I thought that was the problem, but it didn't resolve my problem.
I really wish to get this fix so that I can the A/C working again and also so my windows can defrost much better during the winter months.
I appreciate any help provided for this issue I'm having.

I have a 01 Grand Am. The AC just stop working. I still have the blower fan working on pos 3,4,5. The AC button lites up after pushing it on but no cold air. 71k for miles. If anyone has this same trouble.........how can I repair it.

it sounds like you just need to get the a/c serviced. And if you want to get that blower working on 1,2,3,4, and 5 all you need to do is replace your blower motor resistor. I've had to it on my 01 grand am as well as my 05 grand prix. It's a very simple fix.

I have a 2001 Grand Am. Just had the blower motor repaired about a year ago. Now, the air inside the car will not stay adjusted to the temp. I set it to. When the a/c is on, I get plenty of air, sometimes hot sometimes cold. When i hit a bump, the air temp automatically changes. Any idea whaat this could be?
