    I was driving along and tried to accelerate and my car just died. My dad got a troubleshooting code from the car that said PO200 which is an Injector Circuit Malfunction. This is possibly the cause of the problem.

This sounds like either the fuel pump has failed or the fuel filter is plugged, another thing that can cause this is a plugged catalytic converter, i doubt the issue is the fuel pump relay.

I have a 2003 pontaic grand am, i was driving then


If the motor hasn't blown, the catalytic converter might have broke apart and the guts might have jammed into the exhaust. Unless the wheel your talking about is the steering wheel, then it could be anything that caused your car to stall and for you to lose power steering.

May I ask your car to buy how long those circumstances, I think not a sudden, you go to repair it, I am also very depressed, to buy things when we must pay attention, the day before yesterday I did a number of <a href="http://www.tmart.com/Home-Improvement/ ">Home Improvement</a>, the results exceeded myexpectations. . .

Maybe a transmission problem?


If you're only in "D", you should switch to "OD" when driving at higher speeds. "D" only allows you to move up to third gear whereas "OD" will move you into fourth. You're over-working your transmission by driving in "D".

Cranks but wont turn over


you know. i took it to a mechanic and actually.... The timing belt cut the Crank Shaft Censor... So it was the crank shaft censor again. The wires were routed wrong from the first mechanic that "fixed" the car.
