It is not like most cars that I have had where you simply pull off a hose and pull out the valve. It is inside a housing that you remove two bolts and take off the cover which has a heavy duty spring under it so take it off slowly. Then remove the spring and I used some needle-nose pliers to grab th…e nipple of the valve and it pulled right out. I then replaced it with a new valve and put it back together the same way I took it off. For a detailed desrciption of how to replace with pics check out: http://macgp.clubgp.com/howto/engine/pcv/gt/pcv.html G (MORE)
there's two clips on top of the air cleaner box - these just pop up and release. once that's done you can just slide the cover up and off the box exposing the air cleaner. remove and replace and put the box lid back back on.
Go to a high performance shop, and see if you can buy a chip to replace the one from factory.
Answer . remove the plastic engine cover by removing the oil fill cap once that's removed you'll see a black plenum look on the left side of the plenum there's an electrical conector 3 wires i think unplug it then twist the hole unit and the pcv valve is sitting in the plenum remove it using need…le nose pliers.

Answer . Below the alternator on the 3800 engine\nand next to the ignition control module\nOn the 3100 v6. Answer . \nWhat about on the 3.4?? V-6?
Sense its a GT I am going to assume it has a 3100 engine and the PCV is under the intake. You can replce it but unless you have over 150000 miles on it you probably don't need to. They hardly ever give any problems on those cars. If I am not right about the engine let me know and i`ll give you the y…ou need. Ray On my '99 Grand Prix GTP SuperCharged. + Standing in front center of the car + Remove the plastic cover + On TOP, the back right hand corner, there is a small flat plate with 2 small bolts on it. + Remove 2 bolts, lift up Plate and Gasket + Remove Spring + Remove PCV with O-ring + Put O-ring on new PCV and put PCV back in hole + Put Spring back in hole on top of PCV + Replace Gasket and Plate + Tighten down the 2 bolts + Put Plastic Cover back on and tighten nut. I would change it(PCV) out every time I changed the oil. PCV's only cost about $2.50 and keeps your car motor from building up too much pressure and keeps your car from getting oil leaks. Also I personally use Mobil 1 oil. Now drive it like you stole it! Dexter Every Grand Prix GT I have ever seen had the 3800 engine in it, usually supercharged, that's why its called a GT. The standard run-of-the-mill SE models have the standard 3100 engine in them. BUT,...if you buy a car new, DIRECT FROM THE FACTORY, then a person could order their car with either engine! If you got the money to burn, a person could have General Motors drop a V8 in their SE or GT model (MORE)
The information is located in the owners manual. However, in short: Drivers side rear to passenger side front, Passenger side front to passenger side rear, Drivers side front to drivers side rear, Passenger side rear to drivers side front. This is the rotation order for the older bias ply tires. Rad…ial tires MUST maintain the same directional rotation as when they were first installed, otherwise the steel belts can slip or break, causing a blowout. Radial tires must be rotated front to rear on the same side of the car! (MORE)
It should be just behind the radiator, you will need to remove the plastic air dam to expose this part. See the following article http://hubpages.com/hub/Starter-Removal-1999-Pontiac-Grand-Prix
Follow the link below. This is how I removed the stereo on my 2000 grand prix gt
Answer. I replaced the computer which is located at the front of the car on the drivers side if you open up your air box theres a shiny silver thing and its called a pcm look it up for replacments but my gp gt will do 142 mph i lied lol got clocked at 147 while runnning away lol they didnt catch me… though heard over my nifty scanner lol so i know where they are going trying to catch me ha i win (MORE)
Answer . Need to be more specific, blows hot, compressor is locked up etc.... ...................... More specific would indeed help. However, the most common leakage points on this model GP are the compressor front seal and possibly a corroded or damaged condenser (the large radiator-like obj…ect in front of the radiator). Diagnosis of a leaking system can be made simple with some UV dye (available in R134a canisters), and a UV-light flashlight (available inexpensively at auto parts stores). You will see a bright yellow fog coming from any leakage points. Compressor replacement is fairly straight-forward (3 bolts on the front, and a single bolt holding the hose assembly to the rear of the compressor, one electrical connector for the clutch). Condenser replacement is a bit more complex (requiring un-bolting the radiator mounts, upper engine mounts, and moving the radiator out of the way to remove the condenser). In either case the filter-drier should be replaced if the system has been compromised for some time, also consider replacing the orifice tube which gets easily contaminated. (MORE)

Plastic trim on the front and rear windshields needs to be removed.. Visors need to be removed. Courtesy lights on headliner need to be removed. Seatbelt clip needs to be removed. This will allow headliner to come down to expose the roof.. 10mm bolts hold it in place.. My roof was (is) stuck o…pen, and There appears to be a phantom snag on the passanger side of the roof. The entire roof is loose and swings around, but pivots on that passanger side and won't come out. Driving me crazy. Can't close roof or pull sunshade out of the way to inspect. (MORE)
Answer . \nmost domestic cars are governed at 180km/112 mph\n. \nbest i could get my gp/gt up to was 176km/109mph :)
Answer . Typically there will be 8 of them. 1 on each tire, including the spare. 1 on the fuel pressure test port, 1 on the high side AC and 1 on the low side AC.\n. \nIf you're wanting to charge the AC, most GM vehicle low side AC ports are near the firewall, on the passenger side, but that's …not always the case.\n. \none foolproof way, follow the AC lines from the compressor. one of the lines will go to the condenser (behind the radiator). The OTHER line is the low pressure line. Follow that one back until you find the test port. (MORE)
Answer . Look for the buildup of oil around the compressor shaft and on the connectinons. If the whole thing is oily or if you don't see ANY oil, clean everything as well as you can, perhaps you could use a pressure washer or even engine degreaser compound, then get some 134-A refrigerant that c…ontains a UV dye and add it to the system, run the AC briefly then use a UV light to see where the leak shows up.

6 1/2" rounds in the doors, and 6 X 9 in the trunk/rear window. The tweeters on the door are a mystery, but I have had no issue with them so no need to replace yet!
Answer: ABS sensor replacement . The ABS sensors are located in the hub assembly. In this case, it is necessary to replace the hub assembly with the ABS sensor inside. You might just check your wires in case the wires behind the hub have frayed or broken. This applies especially if the problem is… the passenger side ABS sensor. (MORE)
Answer . It it toward the rear og the car drivers side just ahead of the rear wheel..
On the fire wall behind the power steering pump.just run your hand down behind the pump and you will feel a little nipple which is l shaped.you can pull it off and clean it out if it's dirty.thats usually the problem when you get water in the passenger floor board.
Raise hood. Look down along front edge of coolant recovery tank. Or turn wheels to the right. Look past the tire into the wheel well. Or from underneath, look up to the left of the oil pan. Looks like a fat beer can.
To install shocks, you must disassemble the entire wheel hub assembly to get to the STRUTS, not shocks! This can take some time and might want more than one person to help with disassembly of brakes and moving the tie rod and CV joint. Then from there, its pretty easy. just open hood and unscrewed f…rom top left and top right under your hood. You can replace with quick struts for easy repair or gas-matic, which is actually preferred since its a pressured shock, it lets it control bounces from bumps or uneven pavement much smoother. (MORE)
Answer . i have a 2002 grand prix gtp that requires premium fuel but due to the insanely high gas prices i run plain old regular.as long as your NOT getting any spark knock or pinging you ll be alright.i ve been running regular now for over 2 years with no problems.
Follow the upper rad hose to the engine. You will need to remove the engine cover. To remove the cover turn the oil filler neck (not the cap).
Where is the EGR valve on a 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GT?" It is toward the driverside at the top toward the top it has a plug coming out of the top and is held on by two 13m nuts. Unhook the negative battery cable and then unplug the valve. After it is unpluged take off the two bolts holding it on…. Make sure you remove all the old gasket and replace it with the new one. Bolt the new egr valve on, plug it in and reconnect the battery cable. The service engine light will be reset due to the fact that the battery was unhooked. If the light don't go off or comes back on you may have to take it to a repair shop so they can update the sofwware. Hope it helps and let me know how you make out. (MORE)
To program a new key for a 2006 Grand Prix, insert the key into theignition and turn it to the 'on' position. Now you must wait 10minutes 30 seconds. When the time is up, you have 45 seconds toturn the key back 'off.' Repeat this step two more times. When youturn it to the 'off' position for the thi…rd time, turn it back to'on' and you're done.

there is one under the hood on the passenger side, it's black. the other is in the right side of glove box, it's gray and should say fuses. you have to pull it out. there should be a map on the covers
For the tires? It should tell you the max tire pressure on the sidewall of your tire. it should say max psi. Don't put more than the max psi. you should put less.
Lower right side of passenger footwell under the dash. Its above the black cover that has the floor light on it.
As far as bolt patterns go, I believe the Eaton M90 roots-style supercharger will fit. However, in order to operate properly, I believe a lot of electrical retrofitting would be necessary. The largest concern, however, is that the 4T65E transmission in the GT would not be able to safely handle the p…ower and torque that GTP produces. The GTP is equipped with the 4T65E-HD "heavy duty" transmission, which is capable of handling more power, i.e. supercharger. Applying the supercharger to the GT is probably more trouble than it is worth, and I would not recommend the application unless all the parts are in front of you and readily accessible, and you are willing to deal with any possible headaches that come along with this process. Hope this helps though! It can be done but you need to transfer parts from the L67/L32 ( GTP ) to your GT. Off the top of my head you will need to transfer the Lower Intake Manifold, Heads, PCM, Upper Intake Manifold ( Supercharger ), some pulleys, and some other things. Go to zzperformance.com and you can buy a kit. (MORE)
Where is the power steering reservoir on a 2006 Pontiac grand prix gt and is there an easy way to access it?
Most likely on the pump itself. Look down from the passenger side below the alternator near the firewall.
I have a 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP Comp G Supercharged, and it reccommends premium gas, but it does fine without it.
Scroll through your menu to the "Tire Pressure" screen, then press and hold the Reset Arrow. That should fix your problem.. Good Luck
Yes it does. 3.8 NO SOME DO HAVE THE 3.1 INSTEAD OF THE 3.8 IN THEM ! Some have the 3.1 and some has the 3.8 the 3.1's are junk get the ones with 3.8 a much stronger and better engine.
An automotive expansion valve can be tested by putting it in ice water. The sudden drop in temperature will cause a valve that is working properly to close. If the valve s faulty it will remain open.
It's probably just as easy to get a shop to do it by the time you buy the oil, filter & drain bucket. If you want to do it you need to lift the vehicle ON STANDS!!!! not just a jack and put a drain bucket under the plug in the bottom of the oil pan. Undo the oil drain plug and let the oil drain out.… Then remove the oil filter & replace it with a new one, don't have to be Hercules when you tighten it, just as tight as the old one. Make sure you lube the new filter rubber seal with some new oil before installing it and make sure the old rubber seal came off with the old filter. Then put a new drain plug gasket on the drain plug and tighten it up again don't have to Hercules & strip the pan or plug. In the valve cover you will see the oil filler cap and using a funnel you fill it up. It will take 4.5L of oil. In a hotter climate you can use 10w30 oil and for winter or a cooler climate use 5w30 oil. Your owners manual will give you the options. Oil filter part # is: Fram:PH3387A, Carquest:85040, Wix:51040. Most shops will take the old oil at no charge so you don't have to dump it anywhere illegally. (MORE)
yes or you can just swap the upper end of the motor (heads, lower intake manifold, supercharger, throttle body, and crank dampner) and turn your gt in to a gtp. look up 3800 top swap or go to zzperformance.com for more info by swapping the parts out instead of switching engines you car will actual…ly make more hp because of the better compression ratio (MORE)
Yes, search clubgp.com for intercooler options, the ZZPerformance intercooler is the best on the market at this time.
I have replaced hub bearings like 4 times on my 01 grand prix, anyone else have that problem and the catalytic converter 3 x
no, the gt has a 4t60e transmission and the gtp has a 4t65e-hd transmission which is built to handle more power than the t60. t65-hd is a better tranny
Signs of a worn timing chain are difficulty starting in cold weather with backfire and sudden brief loss of power while accelerating or decelerating ("stumbling").
yes it can the car i bought has a 1998 body and trans with a 2005 gtp supercharged engine it will fit. most all Pontiac engines will swap with other Pontiac models same goes with most every other car company.
The fuse for a signal light would likely be located on the side of the dash board. Open the front passenger door and on the edge of the dash you will see a fuse panel cover grab it and pull should be a map of fuses in the back of the cover The other location of fuses is under the hood but it is m…ostly circuit breakers and engine fuses (MORE)
That's easy. Check your power steering fluid. Its probably low and you have a leak somewhere. My 2002 did the same thing. Turned out to be a hose leaking.
Turn on the ignition key....but don't start the car. Pump the accelerator pedal all the way to the floor 3 times. After releasing it the 3rd time it should reset.
I have a 2003 Grand Prix GT and the AC recharge port is right behind the motor on the firewall. Look for the silver pipes coming out of the firewall right near the middle. You will see the recharge port on one of the pipes there.
If the car has traction control you must disengage it first, then if you are doing a stand still burnout engage the parking brake provided that they work. If you are doing this from a traffic light and plan to proceed down the road disengage the t/c and then hope that your car has enough juice to sp…in the tires (MORE)
I bought a '04 Grand Prix GT in 2008 with 80k miles on it. I've kept it well maintained and currently (July 2012) have 145k on it. I can't think of any real problems it has had. I've kept oil replaced on it, typically with high mileage oil, replaced tires, rear brakes (requiring a special tool I bor…rowed from autozone). Thinking about it, I've also replaced the vent fan, and a plastic elbow that leaked antifreeze. About 5k ago, my radio display went dark so I can't see what station I'm on or anything. It does run a little warm, so I flushed the radiator and replaced the thermostat--no effect. It started leaking antifreeze around a little over 110k, so I replaced the water pump. I consider all these things, however, practically trivial and of little cost. Big things (engine, transmission, etc.) all seem to run fine. I trusted it on a 3,000 mile road trip a couple months ago and will be making the same trip in this September. I drove the first 1500 miles straight with only a few short stops... never a hint of a hiccup. Returning I got tired and broke the 1500 miles into two days. :) (MORE)
Yes you can. There are many things you need to do to compensate for it. The compression ration of the GT is 9.4:1, whilest the GTP is 8.1:1. You need lower compression pistons to handle the boost. ZZPerformance.com, and 3800performance.com actually sell kits that give you everything you need in orde…r to apply the supercharger to your N/A 3800, including the Eaton M90 Roots Type Blower. Check it out! I ordered mine from ZZP. Hope this helps . (MORE)
hey, I have 99 grand prix SE with a 3.1L and my dash lights are doing that also plus my blower fan for heater will slow down when I come to a stop and then sped back up when I gave it gas plus my dash lights brightened back up also when I gave it gas. Its most likely your Alternator, least that's wh…at my mechanic told me but I myself, just to avoid a run around, I had my Alternator, battery and Serpentine Belt replaced and it doesn't seem to do it near as bad but it still does it some, so I don't know. I hope I helped!? Also, I replaced my Serpentine belt only because I thought maybe my belt was getting worn and slipping possibly. Honestly, I think Pontiac Grand Prix's are junk and expensive to fix, I've had nothing but problems with mine and wish I could get rid of it and if I ever get rid of it, im just gonna take it to the junk yard because I wouldn't sell this car to anyone with as many problems as they have.
