Question about 2000 Pontiac Grand Am GT
We just bought a 2000 Pontiac Grand Am GT from a private owner. Every time we put gas in it, or the warmer it gets outside, or the more we drive it, it doesn't want to start. If we disconnect the vacuum hose, it will start. Sometimes we can reconnect the vacuum hose and it will stay running but it usually dies when we give it gas. No one seems to know what the problem is. I think we bought a lemon. One repair shop said a LOT of parts have been replaced on this vehicle so I think the previous owner tried to figure it out but just gave up and sold it.
I had the same roblem with my 96 grand am if you unplug the vacum hose from the brake booster it will stay running but it was running rough it ended up being a coil pack...

Sounds like a defective EGR valve vacuum control solenoid or a defective sensor for the egr position.
