Question about 1999 Pontiac Grand Am GT

1 Answer

Loses power and starts chugging

My 1999 Pontiac Grand Am will sporadically lose power and start chugging when on any type of incline. The "Check Engine Soon Light" will come on. We'll pull over; shut the car off; wait a few minutes and start it back up and will run fine. The "Check Engine Soon Light" will stay on but will eventually turn off within 24 to 36 hours. Also, before this problem started, my "Trac" light will come on ALL the time no matter what the road conditions are.

My car loses power sometimes and I can have the pedal on the floor. What causes this? I have new spark plugs and wires, fresh air filter good engine oil life. (1999 pontiac grand prix 3.1 v6)


Could be many things but,i would put my money on a weak fuel pump.Check your fuel pressure it should be 41-47 psi with key on engine off.If its not within these specs replace pump and filter.
