Question about 1996 Pontiac Grand Am
96 grand am 3.1 170.000 km . on humid days car misfires while driving and idle .Codes pointed to number 5 injector s electronic module (replaced). In warm dry weather it misfires less .spark plugs,wires,gas filter,tank,fuel pump battery new .starting the car in the morning results in a fluctuation of intensity from high to low repeatedly of all electric components (ligths head lights dash lights radio including the idle of engine thanks for all suggestions
I had a 94 that ran into problems like that with very rough idles and misses. i get about five different codes from injectors to oxygen sensor. turned out my negative wire from the battery was so corroded inside the insulation it was causing all sorts of problems. bought new cable and ends from canadian tire $40.00 and installed (had to clean the connection to the block with sand paper) but fixed all my problems after that.

Bad miss at idle?
While stop engine idles like cylinder missing?
Engine Misfire codes for car?

Misfire on cylinder 4?
Oil on spark plugs and car misfires?
