About Pontiac Parisienne

In response to the recession and fuel crisis of the late 1970s and early 1980s, Pontiac Parisienne was produced by an American multinational corporation General Motors Company and sold under its brand Pontiac between 1959 and 1987 as a full-size car. Originally introduced to replace the Pontiac Catalina and Pontiac Bonneville, Parisienne in its name means a grammatically female person or thing from Paris, France. For the United States market, Parisienne was only available from 1983 to 1986. It sold well when the GM decided to drop the line after the 1986 model year with no replacement after being manufactured through five generations. But the 1987 Pontiac Bonneville and Pontiac G8 were believed to be Parisienne's replacements.
Since the most well-known Pontiac Parisienne was the United States model, we will focus on the Parisienne from 1983 to 1986. Built based on the B-body platform, it was actually a disguised Chevrolet Caprice with Pontiac front and rear fascias as well as different grille insert and different taillight trim. And Parisienne was offered in three body styles: 2-door coupe, 4-door sedan and 4-door station wagon. During its lifetime, Parisienne was powered by engine ranging from 4.3 L inline 6-cylinder engine to 6.7 L V8 and these engines sent power through the 2-speed, 3-speed automatic and 3-speed, 4-speed manual transmissions to the rear wheels.

Pontiac Parisienne Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Being a compact vehicle with high sales record, it is enough to prove how popular the Pontiac Parisienne was. But taking the age of Parisienne into account, you had better be aware of these common problems on it in advance:
First, for an old model like Pontiac Parisienne, the engine failure is always the first and most serious that it could ever meet. And in case it destroys your vehicle in this way, the best solution would be solving it as early and soon as possible. According to the recognizable and simple symptoms provided by experienced Parisienne drivers, we know this issue will have first signs of strange sounds such as whining, squealing or rattling from the engine and burnt oil odor in the compartment. Then the engine runs roughly, misfires, stalls and even suffers from starting issues. Before it loses power when acceleration and gulps oil, the lit Check Engine Light is the most transparent sign for you to inspect the Parisienne spark plug, air filter, oil filter, engine mount, fuel pump and drive belt.
Second, for Pontiac Parisienne drives, suspension and transmission failures are also very hard to handle with, especially for those who have no knowledge background about working principle of automobiles. But both issues could result in clunking and grinding noises from underneath the vehicle. The suspension failure is also the reason of intense car vibration, tilting vehicle, uneven tire wear and poor handle, and the Parisienne wheel bearing, shock absorber, sway bar bushing, sway bar bracket and coil spring insulator. As for transmission failure, please pay more attention to the working condition of the Parisienne shift cable, transfer case seal, transmission assembly, automatic transmission shifter and automatic transmission filter.
On the other hand, performing routine maintenance on vulnerable auto parts of your Pontiac Parisienne is also a very critical job for a qualified Pontiac Parisienne owner. The fact is some auto parts of the vehicle could not last as long as the vehicle could because of multiple reasons such as different materials and working conditions. For instance, the Parisienne windshield wiper and wiper blade are often made of soft rubber, which could only withstand for years, and they are often exposed to adverse weather conditions such as downpours or heavy snows. Therefore, including them, headlight, fog light, seat belt, cabin air filter, antenna, emblem, door handle and electrical parts should be put on the routine maintenance list.
