Question about Pontiac Grand Prix

1 Answer

Car died and then it would only run by "feathering the throttle lightly". I replaced the fuel pump and filter and still have the same problem. It has spark and there is fuel pressure up at the fuel rail while cranking.

2001 explorer sport , fuel pump? vacuum leak? 619 scan tool data provided, any suggestions/solutions


The fuel pump is suspect but I believe there's also a fuel filter inline on the underside of the drivers side chassis. Fuel works off pressure so if the filter is clogged, the pressure remains between the fuel tank and the filter. Once the fuel has siphoned off between the filter and injectors, it dies but because there's positive pressure at the fuel pump, it won't come on until the pressure slowly seeps past the clog after hours. It's worth a look!

Could be a couple of things. First check the fuel pressure because it could be a clogged fuel filter or a bad fuel pump. Also could be throttle position sensor or mass air flow sensor.

try smacking the gas tank before you start it. give it a few good hits with a rock or a hammer but don't break it. i had a nissan quest that had the fuel pump going bad and allowed the fuel lines inside the pump to freeze. if that helps then you have to replace your fuel pump

spray some brake cleaner in the throttle body to keep it running and keep spraying and see if you can rev it up. If this produces better results then check fuel pressure. Most likely time for a pump. If this happen all of a sudden I would not suspect the fuel filter as being the cause and I would also replace it with the new pump.

MUTIPORT FUEL INJECTION PONTIAC FIREBIRD 3.1


My 92 Bird with the 3.1 did the same thing after it sat for about 2 months. The car had aways started right away before. I had to jump start it and I thought it would never start.Same as yours after it started. Seem to get better after I ran it awhile. It was getting good spark and was getting fuel. I checked fuel pressure, it seemed to be within specs.then it started to sputter and the pressure dropped to almost nothing. Seems that the fuel pump was going bad, but still would pump enough fuel at times to run. When the car was parked the fuel pressure would bleed off, and when I tried to start it the pump had trouble pumping enough fuel to pressure the system.Long story short! Replace the fuel pump, and filter.....
