I bought this car because the lady said her mechanic said it was a blown head gasket! I drove the car home 2 1/2 hrs straight! Car did not use any water and did not overheat! Oil is not milky and her last oil change was 3 months ago with around 1,000 miles put on car! The air bag, and check engine light stay on constant even after disconnecting batt for a few minutes! In the 2 1/2 ride car did spit and sputter one time at a speed of around 70mph! When I start the car sometimes it died shortly after, no matter at idle or driving! When it dies it sputters before it does! Fires right back up and good to go! Elictric fan work yet she had complained of mild over heating! No matter what I do I cannot get car to overheat and only problem seems to be the occasional spitting and sputtering then dying! Any ideas or suggestions? Car is a 1997 Pontiac Grand AM 2.4l engine
have the same problem?
