About Pontiac Sunfire

To satisfy the primary need for cheap, basic transportation, Pontiac Sunfire was produced by an American multinational corporation General Motors Company and sold under its brand Pontiac between 1994 and 2005 as a compact car. Originally introduced to succeed the Pontiac Sunbird, Sunfire shared its styling with the redesigned Chevrolet Cavalier. Due to low sales and being impacted by the new Cobalt, the production of Sunfire was ended in 2005 and Sunfire was replaced by the Pontiac G5 for the 2007 model year in the United States.
Pontiac Sunfire made its debut for the 1995 model year and it was offered in three body styles: 2-door convertible, 2-door coupe and 4-door sedan. Built on the J-body platform, convertible and sedan only came in one trim level, the SE, but coupe was available in SE and GT trim levels. An inexpensive Special Value trim was also added in 2004. Equipped with standard cloth seats, AM/FM radio, ABS, optional air-conditioning and power moonroof, the 1996 Sunfire added traction control, remote keyless entry, and auxiliary steering-wheel-mounted audio controls. During its lifetime, Pontiac Sunfire was powered by a base 2.2 L I4 rated at 120 hp and 130 lb-ft of torque, 2.3 L I4 producing 145 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque and a 2.4 L I4 making 140 horsepower and 150 pound-feet of torque. All these engines sent power through the 5-speed manual, 3-speed and 4-speed automatic transmissions to the front wheels.

Pontiac Sunfire Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Offering lively engine, noteworthy features, luxury-themed amenities like OnStar and smooth delivery, Pontiac Sunfire is a good choice for buyers with a limited budget. But the Sunfire also has downsides such as unimpressive build quality and troublesome safety. Therefore, you need to be prepared for these common problems on it in advance:
First, according to the car repair statistics site CarComplaints.com, engine sized is the most reported issue with the Pontiac Sunfire. Most Sunfire drivers said this issue often appears when the vehicle reaches about 60,000 miles. The best way to avoid it from causing more serious consequences is to diagnose and solve it as early as possible. If you feel the engine shakes violently and makes squealing or rattling noises; and the engine runs more roughly, for example, it may misfire, stall, and even starts hard or inability to start. And once the coolant starts to leak and the engine stays at a high operation temperature, all symptoms will get worse. You had better inspect the Sunfire body control module, timing belt tensioner, timing chain tensioner, fuel pump, thermostat, head gasket and intake manifold gasket immediately if the Check Engine Light comes on.
Second, for Pontiac Sunfire drivers, transmission and steering issues are also very tricky to handle with. Under most circumstances, the transmission failure results in difficulty in shifting gears, the indicator not matching the gear, the vehicle not turning off, starting in another gear or not going into gear at all, sometimes, transmission fluids will also leak on the ground. And the Sunfire shift cable, transmission assembly, automatic transmission filter, and transfer case seal are often the culprits. As for steering issues, you need to pay more attention to the working condition of Sunfire tie rod, steering column cover, power steering pump and power steering hose.
While apart from those common problems, performing routine maintenance on vulnerable auto parts of your Pontiac Sunfire to make sure every part is in the right order is the most effective way to enjoy a safe and comfortable ride. Some auto parts could not last as long as the Sunfire could due to fragile materials and being exposed to harsh working conditions all the time. And windshield wiper, wiper blade, seat belt, tailgate latch, trunk latch and electrical parts including speedometer, instrument cluster and wheel cylinder belong to this kind of parts, they need your meticulous routine maintenance.
