Question about Pontiac Grand Am
This morning I was pulling out of my driveway - I drive a 97 Pontiac Grand Am SE 165000kms The car sped up a bit on it's own, then the steering went and the car shut down. I started it again no problem but now it won't rev past 4000 - it hits 4000 and then bounces down to 35000 and back up to 4000 over and over. I also hear a clicking sound
Its normal,its called fuel cut off designed to keep the engine from over revving while in idle or with no load.clicking might be a lifter noise that has collapsed.

SOURCE: engine won't start!!!!!
It's possible the "anti-thielf" system has been failing and went out while you was driving. If the ignition key has a chip in the shaft of the key your car has anti-thieft. It's possible the system doesn't reconisethe igntion key and shut the system down. Try using another igntion key if it came with 2 keys. If the engine started you'll need to get the other igntion key replace.

On many cars, if the battery is dead, it locks the key in the ignition. Put a battery charger on the car or replace the battery and give it a shot.

SOURCE: doesn't rev up past 2 rpms
Run into autozone or Pep Boys for free trouble code scan, then write it down and get back to us, or if obvious what problem is diagnosed, replace the part.
