Question about 1996 Pontiac Grand Am

1 Answer

Car losing power for a few minutes then starts running fine. happens often

Car will be running fine and then it will start missing out and losing speed for a few minutes and then it will work itself out and start running fine. When this happens the check engine light will start flashing when its bad, then when it gets better it will stop . We have changed the fuel filter and this helped a little, what else might cause this.
