Question about 2001 Pontiac Sunfire

1 Answer

Realy esnsor I am working on a friends pontiac sunfire. I have changed the plugs and wires and will not start.. She had run in with a medium sized snow bank about a week ago,when she got it out she could only go about 10 miles an hour and the car spit and sputtered and was also starting to over heat. Could a sensor need to be reset?

The 2001 pontiac sunfire has a very common electrical problem right off the line....nothing is done right.....check the wire for the starter relay and if they are ok check the starter solinoid itself if its the same problem if you go to tighen the terminals they will bust off from voltage arking inside

2000 sunfire will not start? nothing wrong with plugs, it has compresson. it will roll over . fuel pump is running. the moduel is ok because we have another sunfire and we tryed it on the other car. why...


It sounds like it might be a bad crank sensor. Although I had a sunfire one time I was working on that did this from a bad ignition switch. Check for power on the pink/blk wire at the ignition module plug with the key in the run position and when cranking the engine. Also do you have a security light flashing?

2000 pontiac sunfire misfire


Solution is in the wiring harness....these cars are noted for this as it runs under the rad exposing it to the elements and corrosion. You will need a dealer with the proper scanner to read the code & find the wire.

Changing spark plug wires


WEll u dont need to remove anything This is what i did lift your car up with a jack. where you oil filter is you will see you plug wires running into your (ICM) Ignition Module unplug them and slide them to the top of your motor. dont get them mixed up otherwise your timeing will be messed up and your car wont start. on the ICM from the top to bottom the plug numbers are 2,3,1,4 and on top of the moter from left to right 1,2,3,4 just make for sure u have the right order..
