I have an 96 grand am gt with the 3100 in it. my ets light comes on when the car is running. it says ets off. i have switched out shifters thinking maybe it was in the switch but no luck on it......any suggestions. also i was wondering if the factory dual exhaust are restricting my horsepower??? seems that the car doesnt run as great as my 94 cavy with the 3.1 mpfi. they are practically the same motors right??? i wonder why it is not running as strong.i cant even spin the tires in the grand am. i have gave it a tune-up and still no luck.any more suggestions????

as for the exhaust question:

it can be more than just an exhaust to restrict hp in a car. it could be anything from a dirty air filter to headers to the exhaust.

ets is the traction control.....changing shifters should have nothing to do with it.

is your brake light on as well? if that's the case your ebrake may have a short or something....that would turn of traction control i believe

my ebrake doesnt even work...... as for changing the shifters, it did it before i changed them....as for the lack of power, maybe my engine is just wore out after all it has 179000 miles on it.
