Rodney Turner: Pontaic 2001 grand am GT 3.4 liter motor if u know what the problem is
please help and god bless
Matt Cogar: 2000 pontiac grand am gt. I've noticed when i get to about 1/4 tank of fuel
the car won't start. If i rock the car back and forth while turning the key
to the on position to engage the fuel pump it will tend to start. Inline
fuel filter has been changed. Fuel pump screen clogged? HELP!!!
Albert Eble: 02 Buick Rendezvous. On occasion will start right up, grumble and then die
after about one second. Then won't start, just cranks and cranks. If I
let it sit 15 minutes or so and come back, then usually starts right up.
Runs great once running, no stalls, hesitation or other issues. Problem
only happens once in every 5 starts or so. Fuel pressure is good (58 psi).
No leakage (gas, coolant, vacuum) in engine that I can see. Any advice
what to look for next?
Niko Gauna: I have an 02aztek and the coolant hoses are always hard, we have done the
water pump and the temp levels seemed more stable, we did the thermostat
next because the levels started going crazy inline somewhere sat for a long
time, or when I had it idling for a long time, 30 mins or more it would
climb, never in the red,... but still to high for my liking. It does
hesitate a little bit when u start it sometimes, other Times the remote
start goes off but don't start the car. 134, 000 on her
G. Phillips: I am having a hard time locating parts on my GM 3400 sfi engine. I do not
have diagram or manual. What is the specific name of the hose that is
connected to the PCV? Also, what is the name of the hose that is connected
on top of the air intake duct that is then connected on the back end of the
rocker arm cover? That hose in particular has a plug on the end that needs
to be replace so it can fit tightly in the cover.
MissLLP: Where is the thermostat housed?
mario villa: These engines are pice of crap no joke
Marcos Ramirez: Hi!! @ 2.35 can you tell me were that line goes, it get broken and I don't
know were to look at thank you for your video
Kaneshia Wagner: Where is the pcv valve located?
John Paulson: Well I gave up on doing the work myself in fear of creating a bigger mess.
So to the shop it went. A local shop who I very much trust looked at it and
quoted me less than $700 for the intake gasket. Since I budgeted more than
that I will have him check some other items while they are there. New
thermostat and maybe some new coolant lines are in order. He said no labor
on those since we would already be in deep. Fingers crossed the overall
stays under a grand.
Joshua Snyder: I have a 99 alero 3.4l. With ~162k miles. The car. died on my wife. I
pulled CEL codes. Only P0300 multiple miss fires. All cylinders receiving
spark. Will barely stay running for 1 minute. Sounds like2 cylinders
missing. I did notice the oil pressure light is on. Any suggestions would
be appreciated. I'm thinking oil pump.
Victor Valencia: MY car is a pontiac grand am gt and it started knocking after i start it
and stays knock its not loud or anything and it still runs good but idk
what the knock is caused by?!! need some help!!
Deuce Seven: thoughts on the 3.4 in early f body camaros? degreasing these engines what
should be covered pressure wash is a no no right?
Eric Yoface: I have a 02 grand am and i noticed if i'm in park and i rev the engine a
bit, it goes from 1500 rpm then drops to 400 but it bounces to 1000 then
goes to its normal idle at 700, any thoughts on what can be causing this
issue? also idles in drive really rough like its almost bogging.
Oaklandcoliseum: Worst engine ever .Starts Great first in the morning but once warmed up the
engine shakes and fights it's self trying to restart after short or long
ride . Has anyone solved the warm restart problem ?
fatback1980: Hello, thanks again for the great videos. They really helped me change my
intake gaskets and head gasket. I now need to change the egr tube on my
montana. So, do you figure I can reach the nut on the manifold to loosen
the tube from below, or should I tilt the engine forward and get it from
the top? Thanks!
Kaneshia Wagner: And how often should you change your Relays?
Antwaun Robinson: About how much motor oil do I put into a bone dry 3400 engine?
meTimetraveler: the oil pump drive can leak oil, where you have to replace the "O" wring.
Symptom oil on the ground. Pooled oil under the throttle body on the lower
copcarmehanic rick: (MECHANIC 37 YRS) i work at a used car lot, everyone of those i get i
usally have to change thermostat, and int/ gaskets. sometiomes head
gaskets. make sure if u do intake, use 'upgraded' felpro gaskets(metal)
instead of plastic. its worth it.
big bubba: have this engine in my '04 Impala. Have over 175,500 miles on it.
Sal Perez: Where is the cranshaft position sensor? Is there one or two
James Bessette: I have a 01 Chevy Monte carlo. My car always starts rough i gotta hold down
gas for it to start. Also once its warm she likes to stall after i sit at a
stop light or sign then turn a corner or something it stalls. I replaced
fuel lines, idle motor, pcv valve, plugs and wires, and fuel filter. What
could it be on the 3.4 sfi...
david long: I'm completely lost. I have a 2000 grand am gt. I had the engine replaced
and it ran fine. No problems until about a month later. Now it sometimes
will either overheat or I will have heat inside the car and loose it and
then I can shut it off let it sit for a couple mins and it'll be fine or it
will just be fine to start. I put a new coolant bottle, new thermostat, and
a water pump off the old engine that I know was good. Sometimes it will
push coolant back out the bottle through the overflow or just air after I
shut it off. The car runs good. It doesn't smoke. Starts easy. Everything.
When it over heats or when I have heat and loose heat the radiator hoses
are both soft when everything is fine they are both firm. Neither one feels
to soft to where it should collapse. Help
Katie Jean: Ticking/clicking noise coming from engine, 3.4L 03 Alero. Happens when
revving, when in neutral, and when idle in park. Thinking maybe a lifter?
Not sure... Low oil pressure though. Any ideas?
ProApathetic: I have an 02 Grand Am GT, and it'll hesitate to start sometime and when it
happens some time it takes quite awhile for it to start, but it will run
fine, also i doesnt feel like it has power i have a couple of friends with
gt's and se's and they can get 0 - 60 in around a 7 - 9 sec range mine will
Jose Sanchez: My 2001 Alero hesitates when starting first i thought it was the fuel pump
but it is working fine it runs fine it idled funnny once but not anymore,
any help would be greatly apreciated
laszlo tabor: Hello, I have a 2000 alero 3.4 v6..trying to replace camshaft sensor & in
order to do this, I need to move power steering pump outta the way..
Removed the 3 bolts (through the pulley access holes) but can barely make
it budge..only a few cm up.. Am I missing something? Do I have to remove
the pulley in order to "lift" the pump? Thanks and good work!
Charles Mcpeek: It's losing power when accelerating.
David Weesner: I have an 02 rendezvous. I currently have the heads off for gasket
replacement. As you know, parts are everywhere in my garage. It ran fine
before I took it apart, but im wondering if I should replace or have the
valves checked as long as I have it off. I just bought the car and have no
idea of the history. I am no expert on heads and think maybe I should take
them to a shop and have them checked? Is this just asking for a large
bill? I am pretty handy and usually go for DYI and I took it all apart no
problem. I could do the valves with good advice. I am a machinist and have
no problems following instructions. Thanks for your videos! Any thoughts
on doing what is best at this time? Car has 233k so who knows
pontiacaztek2: Vacationtime, thanks for the videos! Need your help.... my 1996 Olds
Silhouette with the 3.4 liter engine.....well, the dealership told me that
I need to have the crankshaft seal replaced. Any idea on how much this
disaster is gonna run me?
8goodlyfe1: Hello. The check engine light came on, scanned it, and received the codes
P0108 and P0101. I proceeded to disconnect and clean the MAF and there was
gasoline in the air intake duct, all over the maf, and the air filter. What
could have caused this and how to fix it? thank you in advance for reading
oscar contreras: I have a 2004 impala and I recently discovered a bad leak under a metal
hose that runs under the 3400 upper intake manifold. It lets off a hissing
sound which I believe is an obvious sign of pressure leak from a metal
pipe. I was wondering if it was absolutely necessary to remove the intake
manifold or if it could just be disconnected and pulled off another way.
Anthony Allender: I have no heat and on occasion my 2003 impala 3.4 will overheat (in the
red) and then drop back down. Recently had intake manifold gaskets
replaced, radiator and heater core flushed. Thermostat replaced also. Does
this sound like a bad heater core, water pump or thermostat? I would
really appreciate your help.
Danny Storto: My 3400 is in a 01 grand am n just the other day it started to lose power
while accelerating. Now it has NO power pasy 4000 rpms!!! Its not spark
plugs wires or the mass air flow sensor. The only code that is going off is
an oil pressure sensor. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ashton Cowling: I just bought a 2002 Malibu someone decided to put this engine in it. I am
trying to find how old the engine is and the problems. Engine has a 99
etched on it I haven't seen any leaks
Fernando Warren: I have the 3400 in a Chevy venture and when I start it up in the morning it
knocks pretty bad
But once it warms up it goes away and runs fine, how can I fix this and why
is it doing this?
Charles Mcpeek: I have a 2002 Grand am gt with 3.4l.I recently lost my heat and the car
runs warmer than it it normally does.Also after this happend,when it gets
warmer it seems like it p
salim turkovic: Thanks for video, I found it very useable. Got some experiance fixing cars
and just did lower manif gasket on my Aztek 3.4L.
SAYCED: 2003 Buick Rendezvous leaking antifreeze behind engine block. Can't tell
exactly where. Is there a hose I'm missing. Problem just started after new
water pump was put on.
Thakiid101: why cant a 100 yr old company seal an intake manifold correctly theyve had
these issue forever
clwilu94: Someone please help. I have a 2000 grand am with this motor. Cant figure
out why it starts up but will not stay running unless i rev it . When it
gets below 500 rpms it dies. Any ideas would be appreciated.
Vacationtime247: You will need an OBD II scan gauge to pull up the codes. Any autozone or
parts store will run the codes for free. The pinging could be bad gas or
the elevation. Possibly the EGR system. The EGR system tends to get
carboned up. Change the EGR and clean the port with a coat hanger and
strong solvent. Also check for vacuum leaks with a water bottle or carb
cleaner. Be sure to check your oil too, make sure there isn't water in with
the oil indicating a bad intake manifold. Hope this helps. VT247
Elante Ford: O what might you know about the gmc Jimmy. Cause i think I need some new
battery cables any imfo on a quick fix with that please and thank you
Vacationtime247: Loosen all the 4 bolts holding on the pulley. Take off the serpentine belt.
Take out the 6-8 bolts holding on the water pump marking the mounting
location (makes re-installing the new one easier). Scrape away all the
excess gasket material on the mounting surface. Coat both sides of the
gasket with RTV black silicone. Install new water pump, install pulley,
install serpentine belt, fill radiator and overflow up with coolant. VT247
John Paulson: I'm back. My '01 Alero has 135k and seems to have an intake leak. It idles
with a very slight roughness and has a slight hesitation with slight
acceleration. A little more throttle cleans it up. Temperature wise the car
runs a little above mid-range but approaches 3/4 when in traffic. When I
shut is off I hear a hiss for a couple seconds and it sounds like it
originates from the intake bolt where coolant seeps from. Compression is in
the 140's on all 6 cylinders, so thinking intake. More to come
Mike Thexton: I did watch that video before, I forgot about it though. I remember
watching that video and thinking to myself, wow that's gonna happen to me,
I just know it. I'll check that out thanks.
CS Bens: 2000 Pontiac Grand Am w/ same engine is often stopping after 15 minutes of
driving. Wait 3 to 10 minutes it starts up and goes a while longer. When it
first happened it would go almost exactly two hours and stop. Would wait 20
minutes, make it to the 1st gas station, fill up and it was good. Now it
happens after 15 minutes and with full tank. Any thoughts? Mechanic was
Tyrone Cox: I have a 2002 Grand AM with a 3400 in it. My oil pressure like keeps coming
on. I have been trying to find out where the oil pressure sending unit is
located, but cant find it If you know can you tell me where it is located
so the I can replace it. I'll appreciate your help.
Vacationtime247: Check the fuses and check for electrical wiring going to the starter.
Perhaps the + lead for the starter relay isn't tight. VT247
