Question about 2005 Pontiac Grand Am
Car occasionally wont start...engine is turning over but will not start...sounds like it isn't getting any gas....need to know how to test these things and which one to start with or if there is something else i should be checking....PLEASE HELP.
Its very easy
first check for the fuel pump relay u should be having a spare one its not expensive you will find a chart in relay box to locate the fuel relay
car still dead after replacing the relay
open the bonnet try to locate the fuel line that hose feed your throttle body with fuel take the hose out of its place then your eye is on hose tip while a friend or any one turn your cars key just for one if the line squirted so the pump is working
replace fuel filter at all

What you need to do is have an assistant turn the key on (not try to start, just turn the key on) while you have the gas cap removed and your ear down by the gas tank fill tube. When they turn the key on you should hear a whirl only for 3-7 seconds. If you hear nothing more than likely you will need to change your fuel pump. Attempt this test on several tries at different times several hours apart before you **** your tank out to give it ample time to relieve any fuel pressure that may be built up thus causing your pump not to respond. BUT, if you are not getting any fuel you are not getting any pressure built up so it should be making some sound. How many miles do you have on this vehicle? 9 times out of 10, sorry to say, you'll be replacing the fuel pump. It sounds like to me that you have thourouly checked every other possible thing. Good luck my friend. Let us know how you come out.

Check to see if your fuel pump relay or the related circuit is working. Make sure you're getting voltage to the fuel pump itself.If you have any questions, I'll be happy to help!

the best thing to do is to have a scan preformed on the engine, sounds like a mass air flow, but these parts are to costly to guess at. if the car will run ok at highway speeds of 60 mph or faster your fuel pump is ok.
