  1. Lol @ "de-ricing" Duely blundered from my thunderdolt
  2. Yes, car starts getting shaky over 60 mph. Recently I replaced one of the front tires. The rest are older...2010 and somewhere around 30k miles ago, if I had to guess. Duely blundered from my thunderdolt
  3. 'Ello again. I have yet another question for fellow grand am owners. My 01 GA has been working alright, and passed inspection with flying colors, largely in part due to chaos's rock auto parts suggestions. But I think there's something else going on with it, but it's hard to diagnose. When I drive, it almost feels like I'm going over bumps even on a straightaway. It's a rumbly sensation. Everything works, but I fear something somewhere is either grinding or somehow out of sync. In a better world, I'd work this crap out before shit hits the fan. Recently I'm getting the ((ABS)) light
  4. What I meant with the shipping is, after you factor it in, is it still "cheaper" than going to a retailer? The base price certainly is, and I'm tempted to go with rockauto based on those cheap 10 bulb packs. The wipers you prefer, do they last any longer than the standard fare? And/Or is it a performance leg up? Duely blundered from my thunderdolt
  5. Well, thanks for weaving some savings as well as chaos! Would you get the bulbs and other small things (wiper blades) from rockauto? Seems like they have badass prices, but you always have to be careful with the shipping. Duely blundered from my thunderdolt
  6. My rear passenger side signal light is out. It's not the bulb; the contact must have gotten wet somehow and is now corroded. I've tried in vain to chip away the worst of it...I think it's beyond repair. The only solution I can concieve of is to replace the tail light assembly. I could go junk yard hunting, but I'm worried that *if* they have one that I wouldn't be able to determine the quality, and I'm unsure of my ability to install it. I suspect there would be soldering involved. The other option is to track down a pontiac dealer, and hope the wallet abuse would be minimal. Either
  7. Hm. It was a consolation explanation. Next time I'll be sure to get the parts from somewhere first. Do you guys use the standard retailer shops like AAP, AZ, PB, napa and the like? Duely blundered from my thunderdolt
  8. Yeah, I never thought the price was fair. Old family friend said that if it was the fuel pump (we didnt know for sure) we'd be looking at a 600 dollar job. When I confronted the head mechanic about it, he showed me the invoice for the part he ordered. It was ~780. I guess he opted for the gold plated model. He then went on to give a lecture about how it's cheaper to pay for repairs than have to deal with a car payment, and I told him I disliked his bedside manner and the lack of reach around. My guess is that when a car is towed to a mechanic, they have you by the short hairs. He also sa
  9. Hey, it's fair play. Nobody was rude, and I did jump into a car enthisiast forum saying I didn't know about oil changes. It's like going into a computer tech forum (something else I do) and asking "what the gigabytes are." My wife's GA has 119k miles on it. It came into her possession around 87k miles. Since she's had it, I think the only major thing we've had wrong was the fuel pump dying around 112k miles. It was quite irritating...had to get it towed of course, and got raped for a 1100.00 repair bill for it. Been running fine ever since. She worked for an infiniti service shop, so it's m
  10. ...and his name is "Bobby." Bobby is my wife's 2001 Grand AM 4dr sedan with 2.4 liter engine. He came along with the girl, got married in 2011. Since then we got a newer car, and with a baby on the way, "we" felt that she ought to drive the shiny new car, while I would become Bobby's new principal driver. Folks, I'm about as un-handy as they come. I was under the impression that oil changes were a once a year affair, and only recently learned the self explanitory art of filling one's tires. Yeah. Total tenderfoot here. But I've decided enough is enough, and want to progress a bit more
