Nothing to do with the head gasket, you have a short from the altenator or possibly ignition wires. If it works when you jiggle them around then definately trace the wires back and replace them. Or at least clean them up and insulate them with electrical black tape to prevent them from doing serious damage. I would do this right away man.

It sounds like you definitely have a bad connection somewhere. Follow those wires back toward the PCM and check for loose, broken or dirty wiring harnesses and wiring, and the wires connecting your fuel injectors while you're at it. Anything in those areas should be relatively easy to fix yourself.

Why does my 99 pontiac grand prix gtp supercharge keep stalling


I would check the idle air control valve before replacing anything.
The computer regulates the idle speed by controlling the amount of air entering the intake thru the throttle body.
The valve could be faulty, or the throttle body can be gummed up.
Is the check engine light on ?

The positive battery cable is prone to corrosion at the battery end. Many times, the connector will completely decay loose at the cable end. Replace the cable if that is the case--don't use a clamp-on replacement terminal as they are prone to failure. Make sure the negative cable is in good condition as well. Check the connector interior for a bright lead surface. Check the tightness of both cables at their far end terminals. Hope this helps!
