Question about 2002 Pontiac Grand Am
I have a 2002 grand am gt. It was driving really rough on and off for a few months, the check engine light would come on sporatically but turn off, not related to how it was running. I went to have someone look at it and it wouldn't start. Now after replacing every sensor, the computer, the fuel pump, the fuel filter, the coil packs and checking and cleaning the injecters we have gotten nowhere. The car still wont start when it's cold without starter fluid but will start fine until it sits for over 4 hours. There's no issues with security lights or anything. What else is left?
I suggest you STOP useing starting fluid NOW,,,if not sooner.
Are there any current diagnostic trouble codes?
Is the theft or security light flashing on the instrument panel when you try to start the car? Is the cat converter restricted or plugged?
You replaced EVERY sensor includeing crank sensor? The ECM you installed, was it a new one or used?
Was the the Security Relearn Procedure performed after you installed it?
Fuel pressure regulator tested and operational per mfrs. specs? The ground on the coil packs clean and secure?
Give me some more information...i will try to help fixya.

Not just Pontiac...get the "pencilheads" out of the engineering departments and most of this stuff will work. Low quality and over-engineering simple stuff has affected all vehicles....take some time and browse through the problems on this site!!!
