for every one with the check engine ligts...
i have a 99 pontiac grand am 4 cylinder....
my check engine light was on the other day and some one suggested checking the oil, it was dry! i know this should be something you check 1st but for me and ppl like me it wasnt! once i put oil in the light went off on its own. we put a piece of card board under the car to see if it was leaking and it wasnt i guess it just burnt the oil off..
whats milege ,ring ,valves ,try high milege oil may help

I have a 2.4 '99 Grand Am. Recently, my key got stuck in the ignition. I was able to pull it out with some difficultly. I drove a few days and things seemed fine. Now after turning off the car the key does not fully go to the off position but is able to release from the accessory position. and the dash lights stay on after taking the key out of the ignition and the battery dies. Also, when I turn the car on it will not shift out of park. Anybody have an answer?

I recently purchased a '99 Grand Am. I'm not exactly an expert when it comes to cars. I was wondering if someone could tell me what the "ETS" button is/does? I know that it's located above the radio/temperature controls, and next to the 4-Way Emergency Flashers button. If someone would be so kind as to inform me, it'd be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

battery must have 12.5V fuel filter, may be fuel pump,bad spark plugs,All connections must be clean and tight,put water remover to the tank and fuel injector cleaner try this first,may be crankshaft sensor that last thing
