Question about 1999 Pontiac Grand Am GT

1999 Pontiac Grand AM V6 loses power sometime while driving

The check engine light comes on. A mechanic had unplugged a wire connection under the hood and the light went off and this would allow the car not to lose power while driving. However, when I plug it back up the car will lose power on and off. I went to Pep Boys and the had the part I need and actually the salesman said that part cost $200.00 and if bring back the old part back i would get $30.00 back. I forgot the name of the part and i need help with the part name. It was something like a Air Flow Sensor, please help i cannot remember.

My car loses power sometimes and I can have the pedal on the floor. What causes this? I have new spark plugs and wires, fresh air filter good engine oil life. (1999 pontiac grand prix 3.1 v6)

Could be many things but,i would put my money on a weak fuel pump.Check your fuel pressure it should be 41-47 psi with key on engine off.If its not within these specs replace pump and filter.

My 1999 pontiac grand am(v6) runs fine till you go to get on the highway or have to go up a hill then the rpms go up the car starts to fluctuate(**** or sputter) really bad were I wonder if I will make it...

my first though is a plugged catalytic converter. This can be checked with a back pressure gauge or by dropping the exhaust where it bolts to the back manifold and then test driving to see if the power is restored.

The second that is a bad MAF sensor. It is located in the air snorkel between the throttle body and the air filter box. You can try unplugging it and see if it drives better.

Lastly it could be as simple as bad ignition wires, plugs, or a coil.

Is the check engine light on? If it is the stored codes would give you some direction to start.

Runs rough when idling, even worse in drive, and nearly cuts off in reverse. Loses power climbing a hill.Is not running hot. Oil and trans fluid look good. Sometimes "service engine light is on". Changed...

I would perform a compression test on all cylinders if you've already changed your plugs and wires. This willtell u if u have ay mechanical problems with the engine. Also even tho you've changed your spark plugs and wires did you check your injectors or coil packs to ensure they're good. A problem with either will also cause misfires.

Loss of engine power

Check wiring around the throttle motor assy on the top of the engine. This harness sometimes rubs through on hot engine surfaces.
