Are all fuel pumps from 97 Pontiac grand prix compatible with fuel pump for a 97 Pontiac grand prix GTP super


No.
The only pump that will work in a GTP model is the pump for that model. And there are more than one tag number for the GTP.
Flow rates can be anything between 20 and 60 GPM.
You have to match the tag code for your car.

My car starts but after a while dies waht can be


Hello! You're symptoms sound very much like a common problem associated with the fuel pump resistor. The GTP engine has a two speed fuel pump. There are two relays that control the fuel pump via the PCM module. The fuel pump relay and fuel pump hi-speed relay. Tied into the hi-speed relay is a fuel pump resistor that may go bad.

Symptoms vary but primarily the engine will start but die in a matter of seconds due to insufficient fuel pressure.

Here is a picture of the relay - which is located in the fuse box in the engine compartment:

What you can do to both diagnose this and either narrow it down to this or disqualify it as the culprit is remove relay #15, and bend out the tab labeled "85", and then reinstall the relay. If this does solve your problem, then you need to replace the Fuel Pump Resistor. Doing this will bypass the resistor, and place the fuel pump in "high" speed mode at all times. Once you have replaced the resistor, you need to bend the tab back to its normal position and replace the relay.
NOTE: while this may be a helpful diagnosis tool, and provide a temporary fix - doing this procedure for a prolonged period of time can lead to fuel pump failure. Use this at your own risk.


Hope this helps and good luck!

I got a 1997 pontiac grand prix gtp coupe. the low coolant light constantly flashes. the coolant fluids are full. i just bought it and i am a little frustrated.


Sometimes the float in the low coolant sensor gets stuck.Find where the electrical connector is on the overflow tank and lightly tap on this area.This might dislodge it,if its stuck.Good Luck!!!
