Unhook the overdive (torgue converter). If you don't have the problem anymore, then change transmission fluid and hook overdrive back up and it will run fine. I had same problem.

I used to have the same problem.... Wanted to blow the whole car up....

But anyways: I had the thermostat replaced as well as replaced the throttle sensor. I'm positive the thermostat was the majority of the problem... don't even know if the throttle had anything to do with it but just said screw it.....

Try to replace the thermostat first. It should work!!!

My grand prIx stalls when the motor warms up and I slow down to stoP at a light or stoP sign

Have you checked your air filter a clogged air filter will cause your car to die when idleing. You could idle up the engine a bit if that does't help.A bad o2 sensor could also be the culprit. Start with the easiest first and go from there.

My 1992 chevy s10 pickup dies after it warms up??? have already replaced the fuel filter.....takes awhile for it to this something to do with the sensor...If so where is it located at on the...

There are about 10 sensors...
If you have the 2.2 engine, see if the spark goes away when it won't start. You could have a module failing. Usually you replace the ignition module and the coils. But, ...diagnose it before you throw parts at it.

What would cause 1999 grand prix 3.1l not to start when wet

usually when a car wont start when wet it is because of faulty plug wires or ignition module(supplies spark to the spark plugs)or both
best way to be sure is to get a squirt bottle and on a dry day start it up. spray water on the plug wires and see if the engine boggs down or dies-then work your way to the ignition module.if none of that works-get an aerosol can of brake cleaner and start spraying around the intake manifold and the vacuum lines
you should find the problem

Engine running problems

That is the classic sign of a faulty electrical control component and the problem could be that the ignition module on the side of the distributor is most likely faulty, and when the ignition module gets too hot the engine will mis-fire and can even stop running. Also, remove the distributor cap and inspect the connector from the pick-up coil/stator where the ignition module connects to it, and if the connector is dark or burnt looking then also replace the pick-up coil/stator or the entire distributor. Be sure to check that the spark plugs have not been carbon fouled from the engine mis-firing. Here are some images to assist you.

Also, there is the possibility that there might be a fault with the fuel pump, and a fuel pressure gauge would be the best way to determine if the fuel pump is faulty, and the ECU (Engine Control Unit) might be faulty. However, the symptoms that you describe seem to be more that of the ignition module.

1992 Pontiac Grand PrixPower loss,erratic idle

spark plug gaps are very critical on computerised cars!! [some wont even start!]
distributor module may be breeaking down as temp rises they fail!
otherwise do compression check as it may have valve problems
also check plug leads & injectors aswell as the fuel pump pressure [ could bestarving for fuel]

1993 grand prix dying

provided you don't have a vacuum leak, (check all hoses for tightness and cracks with engine running) it's probably your idle air control valve or sensor.

95 grand prix died at a stop sign. It is trying to turn over but will not start. The gas tank is full. May be fuel pump?

see if you have spark at plug from plug wire.
these gm cars have a problem with the ignition module under the distributor cap and rotor button.
when they fail, car dies suddenly and will not restart.fairly easy to replace and not to expensive.

Engine dies when warm, tough warm start

If you follow the throttle linkage from around the intake you will see a little black box. Inside the box is a throttle adjustment. Ours actually slipped out of adjustment and there is where you can adjust it back...very simple to do..Give that a shot.

Ignition module?

I had the same problem with my 1992 Transport. I fixed it by replacing the ignition module which took about 20 minutes, and should be easily accomplished by anyone with moderate repair skills. The problem with mine faulty ignition module was resolved temporarily by unplugging/re-plugging it from the computer (under the dash), or unplugging/re-plugging it from the distributor assembly harness. Every time I reseated the connector, the engine started up fine. I could also let the engine set a while, and it would restart. However, when it was decided to fail, there was no fuel being injected into the engine. This is logical since the ignition module tracks the engine RPM and sends this data to the computer to tell it how much fuel to inject. Check your fuel injectors when you crack it over when you experience the problem, and if you get no fuel, it's likely your ignition module. I think i paid 30 bucks at autozone for a new one.
