Question about 2000 Pontiac Grand Am GT

1 Answer

2000 Grand Am GT will just shut down when driving, everything will still work but the car will not start until sitting for a long time, before it actually starts it will sound like it isn't getting fuel. I have replaced the camshaft position sensor and the coolant level sensor after being told these may be the problem, no luck, it still does it

SOURCE: heater does not work and car is overheating

Probably a clogged heater core. Orange coolant clots after a while. Should be replaced more often than recommended. If you have intermittent heat you might get lucky with a coolant system flush, otherwise you'll probably have to replace the heater core.

When driving on the roadway, the car will just quit. The automatic doorlocks will click and the engine will shut down. I pull over put it in park, then start it again and go. This happens intermittently...

2000-2002 Grand ams are notorious for having the most faulty passlock systems ever installed. You are experiencing a passlock failure. When the cars stalls on you, check to see if the "security" light illuminates on the dash board some where. That would be a 100% indicator that its the passlock

Look at this link i found when i had my problems. Read up on symptoms and fixes. 1 of those fixes eliminates all parts of that passlock system and you will never have to worry about it again.

Car shuts off while driving wont start up until cools off engine not running hot 99 pontiac grand prix

You need to replace your crankshaft position sensor located by the harmonic balacer. These sensors heat up and cut off the engine until the sensor cools down. This happens with age and it is not specific to GM.

I'd suggest the ignition control module, however I'd have a certified mechanic check it out just in case...
