Have you changed the spark plugs lately? There are three things that make the car go... fire (Spark) fuel and compression. Does it do this on moist mornings or always? Or it could be Losse or Damaged wiring in the ingition system. Or Intake manifold leaks. Make sure all monting nuts and bolts are tight and vacuum hoses are attatched right and in good condition. Hope this helps.

High idle in park pontiac 04 grand am


Do you have a place where they can check the engine for contamination? Mine had a similar problem it would die after slowing down at the junction, Ask your mechanic to clean the engine and also check the throttle sensor and it will be good as new.

Good luck

My 1999 grand prix stalls and dies at stops.


My Pontiac Grand Prix is also a 99, it has 216,+ thousand miles on it, it runs great, idles good, I need to replace the oxygen sensor tho as it shuts off on me while driving or sometimes coming to a stop. You might try checking the fuel filter and pump as well.

Idle problem


throttle position sensor is what I replaced on mine. Could also be a short in a wire that controls throttle. That was 6 years ago and it was $100. Took it to a shop, that's all I got.
