Get a compression tester and have somebody help you check the compression on the cylinders by removing the spark plugs check each cylinder for comporession they should all be within 10 psi of each other. if not what they say may ring true good luck

I have a 94 Pontiac Grand Am SE 5 speed standard with the 2.3L SOHC Quad 4-138 4 cyl engine. It idles fine; but when you go and shift the car bucks and has little power. Better be going 30 mph before...


This sounds like it may be misfiring, the quad four engine is famous for misfiring theres a coil cover under the top plate where the sparkplugs go, if you remove the 4 bolts and pull it up you will see the sparkplugs and that cover will contain coils and coil cover and boots, i would replace the sparkplugs and the coil cover and sparkplug boots, heres some pictures of the parts, this is where i would start it a tune up, and also check air filter and replace fuel filter,johnjohn2_31.jpgjohnjohn2_32.jpg

94 quad 4 when warm no fire on cyl 1 and 3


Pull plug on cyl 1 leave it attached to plug wire, place it on intake manifold, have someone turn the key over to crank without starting it. If your coil is good spark should be more white or blueish indicating a high voltage spark red or orange indicates a poor spark from a faulty coil. Do this on both cylinders to check. Inspect all plugs and wires while you're at it too.

Engine cranks but doesn't start


Pull off the hat and lay it up on the wipers. Run plug wires from the coil adapter towers to the plugs. Run a ground wire to ground the hat. Check for spark with a spark tester one wire at a time. Don't get near it when you have a friend crank it, there is enough voltage in the ignition system of a 2.3 quad 4 to kill you. I'm not kidding, just be careful.
