I want this car, unfortunately it'll probably be sold by the time I get back to work. It's [MENTION=945]daturbosix[/MENTION] listing.

2004 Grand Prix GTP SUPERCHARGED

Since my ST was totaled I need another DD. This kind of fits what I'm looking for size, power, and economy wise.

So what are the general issues? I know 3800's had head gasket issues and sometimes trans issues. Anything else?

I don't think head gaskets are a common issue.

Rust
Lower intake gaskets
Valve cover gaskets
Rust
Trans (hit or miss)

Lower intake gaskets were the issue, not head gaskets.

Sorry, you're right. I meant intake gasket. Been a common problem through most of the gens.

valve covers were done under the recall
intake gaskets are 3 or 4 years old now, they were done at 90k or something
sister in law drove it erray day to highland IN from woodridge. so she put 45k on it or so

The market is flooded right now. Any other time I would have sold my Prelude in less than a week, and it was up for almost a month without one single person interested. There's over 300 grand prix's for sale right now in the Chicago area.

I love mine. 187k and I just did a ZZP PCM, and about to do the cat less down pipe. I bought mine from [MENTION=9965]Unitek[/MENTION] and I don't think he had any Trans work done, all I did was the solenoids.

And the car gets beat on regularly. Brakes are about the only thing I religiously go through. And tstat but that cause I never property flushed the system. I did change the blower oil when I got it. Should be done every 50k

Mine were changed 3 times. The new covers they put on when I brought it in for the last recall are solid black!

I'm happy!!

Deng... Bout to be sitting on that for a while. IDK if you saw, but there's 340 grand prix's for sale in the area right now. If you want to stand out, you need a lower price.
