    My 2003 Pontiac Grand Am won't go into gear.
    I drive a 2003 Pontiac Grand Am. It is a 4 cylinder manual transmission. I was driving home yesterday when my car stopped accelerating and it would not go into gear. Pretty much my car was stuck in neutral no matter what gear I put it in. When I would try to put the ...

    Hub bearing replacement
    I have a bad hub bearing on rt side. How do I replace it? I have separated the hub from the control arm and removed the axel shaft and the three retaining bolts for the bearing and hub assembly, but it won't come out. Thanks

      This is not a difficult repair, if you have the proper tools, i.e. air compressor, impact gun, a big hammer, and probably a 35mm impact socket. In order to replace the hub and bearing, which is serviced as one unit, you need to first remove the wheel, the brake caliper and mounting brack, the rotor, disconnect the tie rod from the knuckle, remove the lower ball joint nut, separate the lower control arm from the knuckle, remove the axle shaft retaining nut (this is the part where if you don't have an impact gun, 35mm socket, and an air compressor, you will have a very hard time). Next grab your hammer and pound on the end of the axle shaft to get it to come out of the hub. Be careful not to damage the threads on the end of the axle shaft or you won't be able to get the nut started. Sometimes you can spin the nut on a few threads and hit the nut instead of the end of the axle shaft. I've actually had to cut a 1/4" off the end of the threads and start over. There are 3 bolts that hold the hub onto the knuckle. Remove those and disconnect the abs wheel speed sensor connector.

      I got it out. It was corroded in so bad I couldn't tell if the abs sensor was a part of the assembly or not. Thanks for the help, I really appreciate it.

    Occasionally Console floor shifter will not come out of park without depressing shift lock release on console.
    Also sometimes when this happens and I shut off the ignition the key cannot be removed, and the shift indicator on the instrument panel will flicker or glow even though the engine is off and the shifter is in park. Once I get the transmission in gear it functions ...

    Transmission is not engaging overdrive?
    I've got over 150k miles on the car but the transmission was completely rebuilt in 2004. Recently, I had the passenger side axle replaced and when I got the car back, the tranny didn't want to go into overdrive. Now, I'm hoping it's coincidental, as the mechanic ...

      One motor mount - in front - located by the engine oil pan. Connects to the front crossmember. Try the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; www.autopartswarehouse.com or www.rockauto.com for the replacement parts. For example, they (RockAuto) list the motor mount for around $12.00 for your vehicle.
