2001 Pontiac Grand Am se1 2.4 litre from North America
Not too bad
The air conditioning comes and goes.
The service engine light keeps coming on.
I hope this site might give me some feedback and someone out there might have the answer on why my service engine light keeps coming on. I had it checked out and it keeps saying Evap system. I've tried a gas cap and a vent solenoid, but still no better if anyone out there can help me email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Tighten your gas cap. GM cars built after 1997 have fuel tank pressure monitoring as part of the emissions system. If your gas cap is not tightened down, it will lose pressure. The system logs the loss of pressure as a fault code, which, in turn puts on the Check Engine light. Take off the cap, put it back on, tightened it down 2 turns while it clicks. The light should go off after 3-4 driving trips.

My 2001 Grand Am SE has had quite a few problems for the little time that I've owned it. The most recent is that the Service Vehicle Soon light is on and it won't go off. I had it put on the computer and it's not throwing off any codes. It's guzzling gas like you wouldn't believe and I can't figure out the problem. Other problems included the temperature gage not working, the turn signals and flashers wouldn't work, and my fan kicks on all the time when the car is still cold. Can anyone help me with this Service Vehicle light?

I have a 2001 grand am gt that I bought brand new. I have had two problems with the vehicle that I haven't been able to fix. The first problem is that I hear a constant grinding noise that seems to come from the front brakes, yet no matter what I do it doesn't go away. The second problem is that now my service engine soon light is on for the second time and the car jerks into gear. I had this problem two weeks ago and they hooked it up and said that there is nothing wrong and it was just an electrical glitch. Now it is doing the same thing and I am really concerned that I am going to have to pump a bunch of money into it. If anyone has had similar problems please help me out.

I own a Grand Am and my service vehicle light turned on. The problem turned out to be that one of my head lights was burnt out. If you get the bulb replaced the light will usually go off. I hope this helps you.
