Pontiac Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
hello my name is ***** ***** for using JA, can u please tell me what engine is in the vehicle 2.2 or 3.4 as soon as i get that info we can proceed.
ok give me a min to look up vehicle. i need to ask does the check engine light come on
as far as starting the vehicle the problem sounds to be in the park position switch located on the top of the trans, have u checked for a plugged cat converter for the power loss at 4k rpm see this all the time these cars are very common for the converters to get plugged causing these exact symptoms
u need to get the neutral safety switch inspected and also have the converter tested for failure. many tests can be done to figure this out.
i suspect bad neutral safety switch and bad converter.
especially since u say no check engine light but engine only goes to 4k rpm this is a very common problem with exact symptoms for a plugged converter.
ok sounds good let me know what u come up with, if u are happy with our chat today please accept and rate so i get credit for my time, remember we have 7 days to chat after rating is received at no extra charge. have a great day. Mike
