    it should have set a code to make sure you need to have it scaned

    many time i have seen the clock spring go bad but i wouldnt replace it without testing.

Tell me some ideas i'm stumped... I had a bad fuel pump and I replaced it, and pump now comes on, the car started and drove for an hour and parked for the night. Next day I have the same problem the pump...

Could be the fuel pump. Where did you get it? Years ago I quit buying pumps, alternators, and starters from discount stores. I bought a fuel pump that died the next day. Only to do the job again. Now I work I do get OE parts. I have only replaced one OE part in the last ten+ years. I could even tell you how many discount parts I have replace that are less than 6 months old. Chinese made junk.

had a problem with a grand prix like that once, was the fuel filter, and injectors, all needed replaced, and it only had 89,000 miles.
Would check fuel filter first. Is it possible you got some bad gas??
