    if i drive my car for more than a half hour it will sputter and turn off, then if your try to turn it back on it turns on fine but once you put it into drive itll turn off again(almost like its stalling but its automatic) but if i wait 10 - 20 minutes and then turn it on i works fine again... someone told me it might be the fuel filter but i dont even know how to change that

    could try changing the fuel filter it may possibly be plugged... also considering the time of year add a bottle or two of gas line antifreeze.

93 PONTIAC SUNBIRD has no spark and when scanned only code 12 appears


I have a 1992 pontiac sunbird with a 3.1 v6 engine.My car would crank over but no spark at the plugs.The problem was the crankshaft sensor was bad.The crankshaft sensor is located on the firewall side of the engine just above the oil pan cover.Mine was hard to get out, the plastic on it was brittle and you only had enough room to get one hand in the hole to work on it.

Just purchased a 94 Sunbird SE for my son (today) Started fine. Drove for 15 minutes. Shut it down and it sat for 1 hr. Started again after registration and insurance. Drove for 10 minutes. Stopped once...


Take it back to where you got it and make them refund your purchase price. If they refuse and you finianced it go to them, There a law called "The Lemon Law" that makes it unlawful to sell something like that. Sounds like you sure bought one. Don't do anything to it just get hold of the place where you bought it and tell them to come get their junk out of your yard! dhgill1949

Ok, try this, take off the distributor cap, turn the car over, and see if the rotor is turning. If not, the timing belt is broken. take care and good luck

'94 Pontiac will only make RRRR sound while turning on


Starter is drawing way too much power. Have the starter checked. And/or battery is weak.
