Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Starting problem i have a 2001 Pontiac Grand Am Gt with a V6 engine. My car will not start and when it does, it sounds like it is in fail safe mode. When I push on the gas pedal, it has a bogging sound. Most of the time the car will not even start. It had a Camshaft position sensor code. I checked for power and ground for sensor. When car actually started, i did not have any voltage on signal wire. I replaced the camshaft position sensor. No change in performance after install. When car actually started, i had between .5 and 1 volt on signal wire. The ecm has previously been replaced for another concern and I'm almost definite that they installed a used Ecm. Does anyone have any idea whats wrong with this car?

Electrical issues are always hard to figure out, but if ecm has recently been changed your problem most likely lies there. Bring to repair shop that is good with electrical issues, or dealer.

HAVING PROBLEMS WITH 2001 PONTIAC GRAND AM STARTING. WHEN KEY TURNS, YOU CAN HEAR THE FUEL PUMP PRIME AND IT WILL START; OTHER TIMES, WHEN KEY TURNS, YOU CANNOT HEAR THE FUEL PUMP PRIME AND IT WILL NOT...


  1. Check fuel level in fuel tank, add fuel if empty.
  2. Check battery condition and state of charge. If voltage and load test below specification, charge or replace battery.
  3. Check battery terminal and cable condition and tightness. Clean terminals and replace damaged, worn or corroded cables.
  4. Check fuel delivery system. If fuel is not reaching the fuel injectors, check for a loose electrical connector or defective fuse, relay or fuel pump and replace as necessary.
  5. Engine may have excessive wear or mechanical damage such as low cylinder cranking pressure, a broken camshaft drive system, insufficient valve clearance or bent valves.
  6. Check for fuel contamination such as water in the fuel. During winter months, the water may freeze and cause a fuel restriction. Adding a fuel additive may help, however the fuel system may require draining and purging with fresh fuel.
  7. Check for ignition system failure. Check for loose or shorted wires or damaged ignition system components. Check the spark plugs for excessive wear or incorrect electrode gap. If the problem is worse in wet weather, check for shorts between the spark plugs and the ignition coils.
  8. Check the engine management system for a failed sensor or control module.
