As almost all of the Grand-Am owners I have the "cranking problem" with my car. Since this issue was brot to attention nothing has been done the resolve it.
By "cranking problem" I mean that you have to crank a few times to start it.

My concern is this, sometimes when I have to crank for more than 3 seconds the car seams to have started but when I let go of the key the motor stops so quickly that I can here a bang. Could this be very harmfull to the motor?? It's just like the motor is turning but has not been able to fully start and stop abruptly (dead, short, suddenl with a bang : )) :wow: )
