Engine Performance problem
1999 Pontiac Grand Am 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 117k miles
ok, so I have a few things going on with this vehicle, I dont know if they will all be relevant to the engine but Im going to throw them at you and see what you say
when I start my vehicle, it automatically idles like Im pushing on the accelerator a little.
after driving for maybe 15 min. It smells like the engine is getting hot, but the temperature gauge never goes past halfway oh and smoke comes from the engine if its been on for like 15 min.
and lately it doesn't seem to accelerate as well as it used to.
I had a cracked head replaced in november, and 6 months before that the lower intake manifold gaskets were replaced. What else could be wrong with this dang car
ps I know nothing about cars, so if I sound stupid with terms, its because I have no clue!
have the same problem?
