Question about 1992 Pontiac Grand Am
I have a 92 grand am that sputters at about 35 when you accelerate and if you slow down it will sputter when you get back on the gas hard. Its driving me nuts and i replaced the spark plugs and it stopped for a while and now it has started again but i dont want to waste the money on coils if it is not them. or what are some of the other problems that it could be? Injectors?
Well if the problem got better after you changed the spark plugs and you have some reason to think its the coils you can easily check. When it's dark out or in a dark garage open the hood and use a spray bottle with plain water in it and 'mist' the coil and/or wires alittle bit. Make sure your a couple of feet away from where you are spraying too. If the coils or wires are shorting to anything you will see alittle lightning storm. It's alittle spooky watching it, if it happens, but it will let you know what's shorting. Rember to turn off the car before you go poking around because you could get a jolt.
As for anything else, theres several other things that can cause the problem your having. Try what I said first. And look around everywhere you were working when you changed the plugs there could be a loose connection somewhere maybe at an injector or sensor. Also is the check engine light on? You can goto an Autozone or equivilant place and have the codes read for free. Sometimes there abit vague but it gives you somewhere to start.
Let me know what you find out. Or if that's not the problem at all.
