2005 GTO Exterior

Pontiac Letters and Arrow Head

Use dental floss, 4lb fishing line, or stiff piece of plastic/paper to work through the glue that holds them. There are holes behind the arrow head however.


The 05 GTO has a really bad thin paint. Get The clear Bra 3M stuff, it really helps.


2005 GTO Electronics


Press unlock button once for left door. Press and hold for .5 seconds for both or press twice. Turn signals flash twice, and horn chrips twice. If chrips 5 times then there is a problem with the door lock. If lock system is overloaded, power supply is cut for 30 seconds. If they flash three times (the lights) when pressing unlock, then an attempted break-in has occurred (turn ignition on, look at trip computer display for the ALARM ACTIVATED message. They will show until the trip computer MODE button is pressed).


2005 GTO Fluids

Power Steering

The GTO power steering system uses Dexron III ATF. Make sure you USE ATF, and not Power Steering Fluid! Your pump will go out using power steering fluid.

Changing the Power Steering Fluid.

Do not reuse any drained power steering fluid regardless of appearance or condition.

2005 Pontiac GTO Specifications

For those of you who don't know, I'm looking at buying a 2005 Pontiac GTO. I've been looking since late February/early March, but I haven’t had the money until now... Soooo, I'll be posting a lot of information related to the GTO over the next few days/weeks/months. This is mostly for my reference so I can look it up whenever and wherever I want (instead of printing out a book worth of information).

Climate Prediction

One more!

Climateprediction.net is the largest experiment to try and produce a forecast of the climate in the 21st century. To do this, we need people around the world to give us time on their computers - time when they have their computers switched on, but are not using them to their full capacity.


Predictor@home is a world-community experiment and effort to use distributed world-wide-web volunteer resources to assemble a supercomputer able to predict protein structure from protein sequence. Our work is aimed at testing and evaluating new algorithms and methods of protein structure prediction.


LHC@home helps the construction of LHC. LHC stands for Large Hadron Collider. It will be the largest and most powerful particle accelerator ever built. You can read about it here. It simulates how the particles travel trough the 27 km long tunnel. With the help of the calculated information, the magnets that control the beam can be calibrated with greater precision. More information can be found here.


Einstein@home is a program that uses your computer's idle time to search for spinning neutron stars (also called pulsars) using data from the LIGO and GEO gravitational wave detectors. Einstein@home is a World Year of Physics 2005 project supported by the American Physical Society (APS) and by a number of international organizations.
