I still have two things outstanding that are keeping me from getting a sticker for the car after nearly 2 months after purchase:
1. Emission P0171 here which has already been addressed by forum members and not yet completed by me: 2001 Grand Prix GT 3.8 Rough Idle
2. Parking Brake failure: replaced all rotors and pads working great except parking/emergency brake did not improve with new rotors. Seem to have enough pad on the shoe pads. When i push brake down it goes to the floor with only a little resistance but not enough to stop car when idling in drive. I adjusted parking brake tension-er (little pin-gear wheels) which expand shoe adjustment even more so it was nice and snug on inside of rotors but the pedal still goes to the floor and is not tight enough to stop car. Is there something else I need to do as because when I have the rear rotors off both shoes expand enough seemingly to my eye so I don't thing the cable is bound or rusted. ANy ideas? thanks will take pictures the next chance I get or if advised.
