Lets start with the simple and replace the fuel filter and check the fuel pressure at the shredder valve. You can pick up the fuel filter and get a loner fuel pressure gauge at Auto Zone and they will have the step by step instruction to get the job done. Good luck and keep me posted.

Pontiac grand am stalling


A lot of possible causes - have you checked for trouble codes (DTCs)? If no codes, given the age it could be in the fuel delivery system (for example, fuel pump stopping either due to an intermittent electrical problem at the ignition switch or in the wiring such as corroded connectors).

1996 grand am that won't stay running, if it does start it will only for a few secondsand if i try to give it gas it starts to sputter until it eventually dies


you should have the fuel pressure and volume checked with a gage to compare it to specs.the pressure should be 35lbs and the volume should be about 1 pint in 30 seconds.you could have a plugged fuel filter as well.

I have a 98 jeep grand cherokee. i went to start it the other day and the alarm started goin off and it ran for a few seconds and then died. is there a way to disconnect the alarm so it will stay running...


If you use the original key to lock & unlock it from the tailgate and then try starting it, it should reset the system. Be aware that when it this begins to happen more often, it is usually an indication of the battery getting weak & losing the onboard memory for the security memory. If you are using an aftemarket key this may continue to shut down because the security system does not recognize an uncoded key.

My jeep grand cherokee 96 v8 will start just for a few seconds and shut down and the headlights flash on and off after it die


I would call a dealer because usually when there's flashing lights involved it's a code. If it runs for a few seconds then dies it could be a plugged fuel pump or plugged line. The pump is able to pull enough fuel to let it run for a short time but then runs out. Hope it helps.

Starts and runs 3-5 seconds and shuts down


Sounds like your security system is shutting the car down. You should be able to leave the key on for 15 minutes and it will reset itself. Make sure you are using factory keys, and they are in good condition.
