I just bought the car from this guy that really took great care of the car. It's hard to believe it's 7 years old because it looks like it just came off of the dealer lot.
Maybe somebody can help me here. My door locks worked great but now when I shut off the car and press the door locks to lock it won't do it. It worked before I reprogrammed the locks. When the car is running the locks work either way, and when it's shut down I can unlock the locks but it won't lock.

Hello Pontiac owners, My name is Ray and i own a 87 GRAND AM Coupe with a Turbocharged OHC 2.0 L. I've had the car now for nine years and i love this car, not only because it looks good because it's a real rocket. If you have a car like this i would like to hear from you.

Hello I know that your post was made a long time ago, but I also had the vent control knob break off on my 04 grand am. Can you give me some info on the best way to replace it. Do I have to take that part of the dash apart or does the knob just pop back on. I have ordered a new one from ebay and I would like to know the easiest way to replace it.

nuttycarguy. I have a 2001 Grand Am SE with the 3.4L/6 engine and just had the head gasket, among other things, repaired and replaced last month. Buy I got 163,000 miles out of the engine so sounds like I am one of the lucky ones. My mechanic said the gaskets, including manifold gasket, are an engineering flaw on the GM 3.4 L engine and he has replaced a few of them, including one of his own vehicles. I had him use the gasket "kit" and change head and manifold gaskets. While he was into it, also had him replace plugs, serpentine belt, thermostat and fluids of course. Cost me a little over $1,000. Hope she holds out at least another year so these repairs will at least have been worth it.

New member to this forum. I own a 2001 Grand Am with around 162,000 miles. Purchased it in early 2012 from my Mom who bought it used but had it 3 or 4 years. Other than routine maintenance, my Dad had a fuel pump replaced a couple years ago. A couple months ago, I had a major gasket malfunction and had head and intake gaskets replaced. Cost me about $1,000 for the repairs, new oil, plugs, new serpentine belt, thermostat, etc. So far running good, but running a bit hot so probably need to add anti-freeze. Plan on getting oil change after running it about 500 miles since gasket repairs to remove any remaining water/coolant in the oil system. Greetings to other Grand Am owners!
