Might be a fuel pump. The gas treatment shouldn't have anything to do with it. Was it running bad before you put the gas treatment in it? Take off the gas cap and put your ear next to the opening and see if you can hear the fuel pump kick on and off. You will need someone to urn the key to the on position while you listen. Don't try and start it, just turn the key where it would normally be when it is running. If you can't hear the fuel pump kick on and off then that is probably your problem.

Since it is an older vehicle, check under the dash for any "rigging" that might have been done over the years. Start at the battery and follow all electrical wires that lead into the dashboard and fuse panels and check for any frayed or split lines that might be causing you to have a short circuit somewhere. that's what it sounds like to me. Unless you have a huge sound system with some 15" woofers in the trunk you shouldn't be experiencing any power shortages.

Map Sensor or Crank Sensor. If you have a code reader the map sensor should throw a code, the crank sensor most often will not. Both will cause the car to start, idle to around 1,000 R's and then die.

Sounds like the timing belt may have broke. You can check by opening the oil cap on the valve cover and watching the valves while someone cranks the engine. If the valves do not move, your timing belt has snapped. Please let us know if this is not the cause or if you would like instructions for replacing the belt.

2000 grand prix, 3800 when it warms up losses power


I would have to say the fuel/water separator filter is clogged up. The filter will remove water and crud from the gas. It looks more like a small can under the car. If the car set up with a low tank of gas, water will condensate inside and once the new fuel sloshes around it gets all this junk off the walls of the tank and that gets sucked in the filter. Try and replace that first..

This vehicle is due for a Fuel pump.

Mixing and using to many of these Gas treatment is not a good thing, i prefer putting in 1/2 of the bottle during a fill up and only after 3k or every 6 months.

Now what to do:

You need to have this one serviced.

*** If you plan to just keep driving try refilling it at a 1/2 tank to see if this will dilute all the additives you have in the tank and clear things up.

Hope this tip helps.
