2002 Grand Prix
So my girlfriends parents have a 2002 Grand Prix that is just rotting in their driveway. They stopped driving it because it has a few issues.
Bad Starter - easy
Possible bad wheel bearing - pretty easy if its bolt on type
Bad Catalytic Converter (2nd time)
Gas gauge is inaccurate
Given the issues and them wanting to just get rid of it I was thinking about buying it. Fixes the big ones, give it a tune up and using it as a daily than selling it or giving it back to them or whatever. Its not a GTP!!! I say that with !!!! because everyone has to ask. Nope, its just the 3800 motor and nope, I am not going to try and boost it either. Car has around 160K miles and if I was to do that than I would be throwing my money away that could go towards the cobalt or my next car.
Its white, paint might be in alright shape but they dont take care of their cars very well so I'd have to see if the black crap comes off that is all over the rear and stuff, i have no idea what it is lol
Thoughts? just figured another new thread might help some on here haha. I am wondering why it needs another cat though, as I said, its the 2nd one in about 4 years. Maybe a misfire? And the wheel bearing, not sure if that is the reason but while driving there is droning sound coming from the front. If anyone knows things about this cars by all means hit me with whatever info you got.
