Asked by Jul 02, 2017 at 03:03 PM about the 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GT Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Howdy, I have an 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix
3.8 non supercharged, that has an
intermittent engine issue. After about 5 to 8
minutes of running it feels like the engine
"thumps" It will happen at idle or 70 mph.
No error codes. Any help would be greatly
appreciated. 130000 miles well maintained

1 Answer


Check your motor mounts and transmission mounts. They're prone to failure. If one is broken the engine/transmission assembly may be shifting and causing the noise. HTH. -Jim
