You probably disturbed the vacuum lines causing one of the to leak, check the hose from the pcv valve, it is common for it to leak where it connects to the manifold

SOURCE: 96 pontiac sunfire bogs down and dies when I apply the gas.

as far as the bogging and dieing,it sounds like the tps.a simple trottle body service would fix that.for your new problem you need to some test before pointing to a salution.start the car and cover your tail pipe.as pressure builds it push you hand off.a clogged cat will put to much back pressure on the engine.i would un plug the mass air flow sensor and try running the car.this will turn on the check engine light.check your air filtter and plugs.also check your wires.a nother test is a coil strees test.(you have to go to a shop for this)if the car runs ok with no load but spitts and sputters in drive you may have a openning coil.checking with a meter only works if it does not run.last but not least while you at the shop,have them check your timing.a faulty cam sencer will bog the car down with bad timing advancement but not throw a code.
hope this helps,remember to keep it simple,expensive elec. parts are not always the problem

Probably need the computer reset. All these cars now days are set up for the dealer to screw you. The fix yourself is about history

SOURCE: wont hold idle will start with foot depressing gas pedal will run with foot on gas but stalls when foot removed

Check and clean Idle air control valve. Make sure its responding to signal as well. Also make sure ther are no vacuum hoses disconnected. This may not be a "cure" but it's a good place to start.

SOURCE: rough idle, dies when trying to give it gas

it'll either be your ignition system (spark plugs, distributor cap, etc) or more likely your fuel system (most likely your fuel pump or your fuel filter)

How do you change a thermostat in 2002 pontiac grand am


with motor cold, follow the top radiator hose to motor,there will be housing at that end of hose close to motor.remove the 2 bolts @ remove the thermostat housing. remember which way you remove the thermostat from that housing, replace with your new one and reverse these directions to put back together. i would also recommend a new gasket with new thremostat.a little rtv or some people call it blue glue might also be needed.when removing the thermostat from housing you may have to remove the top hose also.befor you start, remember fluid will come out of hose and the housing, be prepared with something to catch that fluid.

Hi, my 2001 Pontiac Grand am SE 4 cylinder 2.4 engine has been starting very "rough" as it runs however it eventually fixes itself. Also my coolant has been "disapearing" i keep having to refill the...


Probably needs cylinder head and gasket, for that rice. Cylinder head gasket is around $1700-1800.00.
Fuel pressure regulator is not too difficult, you have to disconnect fuel line where it goes into fuel rail. and remove regulator, then install new regulator and put fuel line back in. You will loose some fuel, so loosen fuel line slowly, and put a rag around it to keep if from spraying out too badly.
Hope this helps.
