1999 Pontiac Grand Am GT 3.4 from North America
Woo Hoo! I Love it!
Intake Manifold Leak.
I have a 1999 GAGT with 72,000 on it. Wonderful car! My 3rd GA. First- a 1986-finally went at 280,000 miles- the 2nd a 1992, at 254,000- and even then- just the fuel pump (the original) - but wanted a newer one... so a 1999 it was- bought in 2001. I bought it used at 26,000. Other than the exhaust manifold leaking (warranty) - the car has been excellent! I DID replace the fan resistor ($15) and 30 minutes of my time- AND- I did have a battery Post Come off (HAd NEVER had that happen- under Warranty- a Delco Battery- tightened too tightly, probably by the guy mentioned below) - otherwise- an excellent- fast car. As far as Rotors/Brakes go- expect about every 20-25,000 miles to replace- depending on a thing called "DRIVING CONDITIONS." Anyone who has owned ANY car- that is about how long they SHOULD last. If you are driving on more mileage than that with brakes that old/used- shame on you!
I want to do a few mods- intake- etc. A previous poster mentioned the RAM AIR does little- Ahem... No flaming allowed in here. But- he would not be working on my car- if it ever needed it.
I will have another, please!
Plus- 'Honda Boys' with their Girlfriends HATE GA's! Never lost to their Moddies yet!
Hint- Splurge on Leather next time! SWEET!
