SOURCE: 2001 Pontiac Sunfire Fuel Problem

Are you certain that the engine is getting fuel? If not, then you will have to verify that there isn't any blockage in the fuel system to prevent the fuel from reaching the engine. If fuel is reaching the engine, try the following
1. Check compression values for each cylinder.

2. Inspect electrical circuitry in the distributor assembly (slack wires, broken wires, dmaged rotor etc)

3. Check to see if the timing belt was not severed. This belt transmits the drive from the crankshaft to the camshaft. If the belt ius severed, the camshaft cannot rotate in order to open the valves

SOURCE: Fuel pump on 2004 pontiac grand am does not come

Well i would change the fuel filter first. Then if that doesn't fix it there might be a reset button on the inside of the trunk for the fuel pump actually look for the reset button first. If you don't have one there is a relay switch under the hood sometimes they fail. You have three Ac,Fuel pump, door locks. The way i do it is turn the key on have some one put there hands and feel for the switch to work when you engage the power locks mark it with white tire crayon and feel for the ac when you turn it on it will still click even with the engine not running. mark that one also, Now the last one has to be the fuel pump relay turn the key on and it should click. if no click is heard? You have a bad fuel relay switch. replace it. If you feel the click and hear it? That would mean the fuel pump is bad. And these are in the tank. But please go with the easy stuff first. it might seam a waste of time checking the relays and marking them but i always fo this and mark them. cause you never know when your gonna need to find the relay something.
Good luck!
Hope i helped.

Had the same problem, turned out to be the security system, when the security system has a glitch, the car's computer stops the fuel pump from working to prevent theft, so if you have changed your stereo to an after-market brand, make sure that you have installed a GMRC-1 box, this helps to avoid this problem.

2005 GRANDAM GT CRANKS BUT WONT START


Well, there are several basics your engine needs to start: Spark, fuel, compression, and correct valve timing. I am going to assume on good faith that your GT has the 3.4 liter V6. Here are a couple basics on checking fuel and spark:
GM usually puts a schraeder valve (looks like a tire air valve) on the fuel rail. This is where you connect a fuel pressure gauge to test the fuel pressure. It should be 52-59 PSI when you turn the key to run.
If your fuel pressure is good, remove a spark plug wire from one of the front 3 spark plugs. If you have a spark tester, connect it to the removed plug wire. If you don't have a spark tester, remove the spark plug. Plug the removed spark plug or tester into the plug wire. Touch the metal threads of the plug or tester to a good solid metal part of the engine using gloves or non-conducting (plastic) pliers. Have someone try to start the engine. Watch the gap at the end of the spark plug. You should see a bright blue/white spark and hear it snap every time it fires. If you don't, there may not be any spark getting to the engine. Diagnosis of the problem can be far trickier from here on out. You will need to be able to diagnose electrical problems in the fuel/ignition system to find the root cause of no fuel/no spark.

If you cannot hear the fuel pump run in the tank when you turn the key to run, try lightly rapping the bottom of the fuel tank with a hammer turned to its side (don't put a hole in your fuel tank!) while someone cranks the engine over. If the engine starts, most likely cause is a failed fuel pump. Don't expect the car to keep starting on a regular basis if it does start by hitting the tank. The fuel pump will need to be replaced.

I have a 2001 Pontiac grandam. 2.4L 4 cylinder. It will not stay started. If you start it, it will start but while in park if you rev up the engine when it idles down it shuts off. Please help. All ideas...


I had a 01 grand prix GT, with very similar problem. I processed by way of eliminating the fuel pump, ignition module, catalytic convertor to determine it was 2 bad o2 sensors that didn't register on diagnostics. Hope this might be helpful, and good luck.

Put new fuel pump on 03 grandam new fuel relay sometimes it will pump but sometimes when u turn the key on it will start and smetimes it want. you can turn key back and forth and it will finally start pls...


Everytime this happens check the fuel pump if it runs. If it does not then you may have an issue with the wiring. Since the relay and the pump is new. If it runs everytime you may need to check other items such as the ignition if there are sparks and if the battery is good.

Engine turns over, but will not start.


Check the fuel pump for pressure by removing the send line from the fuel filter and ranking the car. Place the line in an empty 2 liter soda bottle and have a friend crank the engine a couple of times to see if the pump sends fuel. If not, replace the fuel pump an replace the filter since you will have a line removed already.

Got a 2001 S-10 2.2L 4 cyl. Engine turns over,


Fuel pump is a good idea but wouldnt be the best place to start without troubleshooting first. HAve a fuel pressure test done. You may have a simple vacuum leak or maybe even a bad fuel pump relay. If those things check out then look to the pump.
