Take the alternator off and have it tested at the auto parts store, this is more than likely your problem....

if it is good, then you need ot check your fuel injectors....

2004 PONTIAC GRAND PIX STALLS WILL NOT START BACK UP SOMETIMES STARTS AND RUNS GREAT THEN WILL JUST STALL WILL NOT START FRO DAYS


Fuel filter, fuel pump, fuel pressure regulator, Idle air control valve, mass air flow sensor, faulty plugs, faulty injectors. If there is any codes set that is where I would start. The check engine light code is going to tell you somewhat what is going on. There are too many different things that there can be. My guess is mass air flow sensor or something with the fuel.

  • P0103
    Mass Air Flow Sensor Circuit High Input
  • Possible causes
  • Faulty mass air flow sensor
    - Intake air leaks
    - Dirty mass air flow sensor
    - Dirty mass air filter
    - Mass air flow sensor harness is open or shorted
    - Mass air flow sensor circuit poor electrical connection
  • Before replacing the mass air flow sensor, try replacing the air filter and cleaning the air flow sensor with low compress air or mass air flow sensor cleaner. Reset code and drive vehicle. If the code comes back, it may be necessary to replaced the mass air flow sensor.
  • possible symptoms Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
    - Engine stall
    - Engine running rough
    - Excessive fuel consumption
    - Excessive smoke
  • the code is generated when An excessively high voltage from the sensor is sent to Engine Control Module (ECM).

Hard starting sometimes.have to spray starting fluid in throttle plate to start


If the pump relay is working and the pump runs when you turn the key on, it could be the check valve in the pump. The valve could be allowing fuel pressure to drain back into the tank when the engine is off.

Replaced fuel filter and pump still won't start


Do you have a check engine light on? Sound like it could either be a Mass Air Flow Sensor or a crankshaft position sensor.

Would a faulty electric fuel pump relay be the reason there is no power going down to the fuel pump in a 2002 suzuki grand vitara 2.0 rhz diesel engine


To test fuel flow, have a 2nd person stand over air filter (air filter housing open) with a can of starting fluid in one hand. Don't give any throttle, then 2nd person gives 1-second squirt into air filter while you're turning starter motor (no throttle). When engine catches, immediately give one third to one half throttle. Just before it dies, 2nd person should give another short squirt of starting fluid to keep engine from dying. If throttle won't keep engine running and only starting fluid keeps it running, then yes, no fuel is going through fuel lines. Either its a fuel pump issue or maybe there's restriction because of clogged dirty fuel filter. If it starts but runs rough and has black exhaust smoke, then its clogged or dirty fuel injectors.

94 Bravada that stumbles and stalls.. won't start when warm..


Try checking the exhaust flow when someone else is pushing down on the gas petal.The farther the petal gos down,the more exhaust should be coming out. I replaced my catalitic convertor at 44000 miles, it was clogged. I had them install a high flow type.

Starts and then stalls immediately


Hello There

It sounds like a weak fuel pump, which turns but not with sufficiant pressure.

I would also recommend looking at the MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor which can also give similar problems.


Hope this helps, please don't forget to rate me.
