Question about 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix

3 Answers

I have a 1999 grand prix gtp that shuts off when I'm driving it doesn't happen very often but yesterday it shut off on the highway the batt light and oil light came on right after and plus my car seems like it doesn't want to start after it sits about a half hour or when i go to start it up in the morning it doesnt want to crank over until i put my foot on the gas. could this be a bad sensor or maybe fuel pump?

I'd definitley look at the fuel pump resistor first. Otherwise I'd say it's the fuel pump. But to find out before you spend too much money it may be worth your while to change the fuel filter, that will at least help whether the pump is bad or not.

I have a 2001 GTP. It has been through 3 steering racks in 50,000 miles. I think it's a common problem with these cars. All the window regulators have been replaced. The lower intake manifold was replaced. It goes through a set of brakes in about 15,000 miles. It's not one of the better cars I've owned.

I have a question since you own a GTP Im thinking of buying my son one however im not sure if thye are good cars and will hold up for him. Have you had any major problems with yours and the one im looking at is super charged. I believe the power steering pump or rack may need replaced. any info. that may help me make my decision?

Possible CKP sensor. Try to have codes pulled first, a local Checker or Autozone can retrieve them for you.

When you say it shuts down do you mean "dies"? If so try checking your fuel pressure regulator.
