Question about 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix
I have a 2006 pontiac grand prix. 85000 miles. 3.8l engine. engine stalls then will start up 15 minutes later. Once it hesitaded last week but didnt stall. I was told it could be the crank position sensor, dirty throtle body, or a fuel issue. My mechanic said i had a bad battery and terimal. Paid $200 and car still stalls. Please help
A friend had a toyota which did the same. The problem was the coil inside the distributor. once he replaced it all was well. The problem was the coil leaking and getting hot and then shutting the engine down. Once it cooled off it would run for about 15 to 30 minutes. He spent several weekends working on it and replacing electronics and finally checked inside the distributor and there was the problem.

O.M.G. THE BATTERY SHOULD HAVE BEEN ABOUT 80-95 BUCKS. AND THE TERMINAL IS ABOUT 5 BUCKS TO BUY. TAKE THE CAR TO AN AUTO PARTS STORE THAT CHECKS THE ENGINE CODES FOR FREE.......MAKE SURE THAT THEY CAN CHECK FOR PENDING CODES AS WELL. IT SOUNDS TO ME LIKE A CRANK SENSOR. OH AND BY THE WAY, MOST AUTO PARTS STORES WILL INSTALL A BATTERY THAT YOU PURCHASE AT THEIR STORE FOR FREEEEEEEEEEEEE.!!!!!!!!!!!!..... PLEASE FIND A BETTER MECHANIC. I HOPE THIS HELPS YOU. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA. BEST OF LUCK. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED, CAUSE I AM REALLY CURIOUS TO KNOW WHAT YOU FIND.
