There is a canister next to the fuel tank called a purge solenoid. this is a small check ball that allows air into the tank as you are filling it. trace the line comming from you uel inlet nozzle.... the valve is stuck shut, causing the gas pump to shut off because it thinks the pressure in the tank is high.

SOURCE: 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix Thermostat

as you face the engine the thermostat bell is on the right (drivers side) Follow the radiatoe hose. Remove the two bolts and raise the bell still attatched to the hose. the thermostat is there with the rubber seal. You can gently pry the thermostat out with a screwdriver or something similar. Put in new thermostat be sure it is the same as the old one, and then replace or change the seal (be sure it is the smae size and thickness as the old one as I got the wrong size from Napa) Then replace the bell, and tighten, but not over tighten. I hope this helps!

SOURCE: 2002 grand prix runs rough,dies service engine

sounds like you have a vacuum leak, check all the vacuum hoses and replace any broken or kinked ones, also check around the intake manifold gasket for leaks. any air leaks after the air flow meter creates 'un-metered' air which inturn will make the car run rough and stall, hope this helps

if that doesn't fix it, it could be a problem with the security controls in the car.

Can't put gas in my 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix


I doubt it.
Usually the problem is a blockage in the fill tube, sometimes the vent for the tank is not working. But there are several components to the EVAP system.
I would check the filler tube first.

GAS SPIT OUT WHEN IM PUTTING IN THE TANK


There's an air return pipe that's supposed to prevent this. Look on the filler neck for a finger sized secondary pipe or hose. Make sure this is not damaged or otherwise blocked.

Spit back can also occur when the tank is nearly empty on hot days. The tank is full of gas vapour and this pressure has to go somewhere. Try adding gas slowly for a couple of seconds, then stopping. The added gas is colder and will cause the vapour to condense, after which you can usually add gas at normal speed.

On my 2003 grand prix ac blows cold on passengers side blows warm on drivers side changed blend door auctuater problem still exists what else could it be


no idea, but you figure it out, be sure to put it on here. My wife's 2002 GP does the same thing. Raise the passenger side controller then slam it down, it will stay cool till the next stop sign. Then do it again. Its gotten us by for the last few months since its happened.
