97 grand prix gtp starts then immediatly dies


If you have a GTP these engines use a hi output fuel pump. they use a fuel pump resistor located under the battery tray (look up from under the car) This resistor lowers the voltage to the fuel fump when not in boost mode. because of its locatoin it is prone to corrosion. if you bypass the wires and the engine starts and stays running replace the resistor

97 gtp turns over wont start..fuel pump runs enermidintly


yep i seen it in happen .i was at a gas station a guy drove car to the gas station on empty.he fill his tank up .could not get it to crank .some cars you have to restart fuel pump when run out of gas. like chrysler.you use a scanner. but chervrolet you run low over heat damage the pump.it has to stay submerge gas to keep it cool. check fuel pump pressure.it should be 41 - 47 psi.

97' Pontiac Gran Prix Won't Stay running


Known GTP problem.

You most likely have a bad fuel pump resistor, which controls 2 speeds of the fuel pump.

To check to see if this is the problem, there is a trick you can do and its very easy to do. Go to the attached link, and bend the tab my finger is pointing at and then plug it back in. If your car starts and runs fine, well we just solved the problem.

1997 pontiac grand prix with major issues


check all fuses for turn signal and brake lights.change fuel filter . first. do a little tune up change spark plugs and wires . if changing fuel filter dont help. have fuel pressure check first before buying a new fuel pump .they run after taxes 400.00 dollars. your fuel pressure should be 41 to 47 psi. replace fuel pump relay also.

My GTP runs 15 mins and looses fuel pressure.. Fuel pump is new


Heres what you need to do to start with. If you are mechanically inclined, when it stalls, check for spark on the #1 cylinder. If you have no spark there, it is likely the CPS or Crankshaft Position Sensor has gone bad, a common issue, and will need to be replaced.

If you need any further help, there is an online Grand Prix community you can check out at http://www.grandprixforums.net. Sign up there and post up your issue and you will get some more input.
