I was just looking at pontiacs site for the 05 grand am and in the photo gallery they have a picture of a 5 speed shifter! The spec sheets only show a 4 speed. Probably a left over pic from the SE's.

But if you look on the specs page it shows a 4spd auto as the only available trans for the car. It wouldn't be the first typo made by GM on their websites.

It was for the 4 cyl but Pontiac is only making GT's for 05, which is reflected on the website.
But they used a pic of the shift knob from an SE. :doh:

They also show an SE trunk in a pic.

This raises questions for me... The picture of the 3400 on that website has a dipstick that we don't have, its towards the back-right of the engine, huh??? whats up with that?

What is the difference between an SE and GT trunk?

I thought the introduction of the ecotec engine was when they discontinued the getrag 5 speed, or when was it?

It would be funny if we could get them for false advertising tho, but that only applies if you buy something and it doesnt do what its supposed to.

I found it funny that when you look at the pic of the interior of the car looking at the dash, the air controls are all pointed up and to the right.

Transmission dipstick?? Please please please, lol, hehe :whistle: It's probably a pic from a car that has a dipstick there, but i want one, it would be cool if there was an aftermarket option for it tho, baah. :boogie:

It's not the trunk itself. The taillights are SE.

Tell me about it. It woulda been useful the other day. Got my tranny flushed. Drove home just fine...smooth shifts. This morning I start the car and go to drive....2500 rpm before the thing moves lol

It was a whole 1 quart low. Shes doin just fine now though ;)
