Question about 1998 Pontiac Grand Am
I have a 98 pontiac grand am gt. replaced one oxygen sensor not both. had a half of a tank of gas yesterday, the car was warmed up already, and got no more than two miles from my house braked for an intersection and the car died. no matter what we did it wouldn't start. had to play the waiting game for it to eventually start. the car stopped twice on the way back to the house. I started the car today, and it started right up like nothings wrong. before i go thru endless dollars to get it fixed, i want to see if there is anything that can be checked first before going straight to the fuel pump which is what everyone is telling me is wrong. i have heard that the fuel pump is in the fuel tank, true? please give me some kind of idea
I would try replacing the fuel filter first. if it's clogged, the gas can't get through, but if you wait awhile, some will slowly seep through, enough to get moving untill clogs up again. yes, most fuel pumps are in the tank. some cars have a little trap door in the inside of the car just above the gas tank to allow acess to get the pump out.
