  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

2 dash lights come on and off (noticable pattern)


My '95 Grand Am sounds like its running fine. The Check Oil light will come on after I leave the car setting for about a day. When I reset the lights, it won't come on while I'm driving. Occasionally it will come on the very next time I start my car, but usually it's the next day. The Service Engine Soon light will only come on when I'm parked and not driving. Like when sitting in my parking space listening to the radio or pulling over to the side of the road to adjust my mirrors, etc. When I start driving, it will turn off after a couple seconds.


I'm fairly new to cars. Recently graduated HS and I only took one year of Automotive class. I'm not sure what the issue could be, sometimes I think the car could not be getting enough oil pressure when idle. But sometimes the check oil dipstick (Which always checks out fine when checking oil level) sometimes smells like gas has mixed in with it. The oil has also been changed within the past 2 months because of this issue so I don't think another oil change is needed. The fuel filter has also recently been changed.
