Question about 1997 Pontiac Grand Prix

2 Answers

Staring problem The car turns over then the RPM's go up. Then they go down and it stalls. I can drive it for a couple of days and its fine. Then it does it again and I have to get it towed because it won't stay running. I've replaced the fuel pump, fuel resister, new alternator, fuel filter. I've taken it to a Mechanic they've looked at it said it was a wire to the battery they changed that I gave them 150.00 brought it home drove it for 2 days and it did it again. Couldn't get it to start and had to tow it back to the mechanic. They have had it for 2 weeks and said its running fine for them. Help please.

    Thank you, Haven't tried any of those. I would think the mechanic would of checked those. Also, wouldn't the check engine light come on if it was any of these causing the problem? The check engine light is not coming on.

1998 Honda Accord engine rumbles and stops


rumbles?, did the RPM drop below 800 RPM? that is called idle failure
and when it does, idle can go to 400 rpm and will shake hard.
and is normal for illegal idle speeds. so post that first.
post that engine stalls
and that the RPM is 400-500 just before the stall.
then post if the fast right foot can save the stall (a key test !!!!)
if easy the ISC is sticking.
if tad hard the EGR is stuck open'
if impossible to save. then more possible (many)
ever do the 60k mile tune up this decade????,. if not why not./ now.

Vortec 4wd 2dr auto trans stalls while drive


you might want to look at your O2 sensors, they can cause the motor to run lean or rich. also you might have an electrical issue that is tripping your ECM. your electronic control module might be faulty. best solution is to get a trouble code reader and find out what your on board computer has stored. from there you can repair and clear the codes.

2000 323i stalling when i slow down


Here is what you need to do, a cleaning of the intake throttle blade and the idle speed control air-bypass valve, they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls) like yours,
Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the engine at idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake
