2006 Pontiac Grand Prix pulling problem

Asked by Jul 23, 2015 at 12:46 AM about the Pontiac Grand Prix

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The car drives fine coasting and braking but when you push the gas pedal and accelerate it pulls to the right. Checked tires and pressure and brake calipers for sticking. Any ideas?

Do you by any chance have the 303 horsepower engine in your car?

300

Check the tie rod, they are known to cause problems in this car. What is the mileage on your car?

torque to much

It's not uncommon for front wheel drive cars with too much power for the car to pull to one side on hard acceleration from a dead stop. If you have the large front heavy 303 horsepower engine in your car, this might be a factor.

I agree. Unless its pulling really hard you're simply experiencing torque steer. In a heavy car like a GP you feel it as a pull to the right. In lighter cars like my Cobalt it exhibits itself as wheel spin. Nothing to worry about.
