The engine and transmission in this cars drivetrain is fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Powertrain Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s)

That is a good starting place; the fuel pump and filter. Due to the car sitting up, gas drys up or some times get thicker. Causing a once good pump to go bad.

If its a "paper" type cartrige filter, the fuel pump sits inside it, in the fuel tank.

If its metal, most GM bodies have the fuel filter under the car, drivers side, in front of the rear axle.

Hope this helps.

While the key is in the last position before the start or during starting, check if you are getting fuel to the fuel line to the engine. If there is none then the fuel pump fuse or relay may have gone bad or the fuel pump itself.

94 Grand Am looses power and abuses fuel. What is

Your fuel filter is probably on the fuel pump or on the fire wall of your engine - Mostly likely off of your fire wall. If it is loosing power have your catalytic convertor checked. Change your fuel pump, this could be your problem. All of these you can change yourself. I don't believe that a '94 Grand AM has an access panel to the fuel pump so you will have to drop the tank - Just make sure that it is below a 1/2 tank before dropping it. Buy a Chilton and it will give you step by step direction. Good luck!

"why isn't gas getting to my spark plugs in my 1998 Pontiac grand am"

Either the fuel pump is shot, fuel pump relay is bad, or fuel filter needs to be changed. A fuel pressure test would be a good place to start. Also changing the fuel filter is cheap and good routine maintenance anyway.
