Question about 1999 Pontiac Grand Am GT

1 Answer

Car wont work after the initial warm up die down situation

Car will not start once warmed up after a 20 minute drive. Once pulled to the side of the road car cools in 5 minutes start the engine and it runs once again for 5 -10 minutes then dyes down again. We replaced the catallytic converter that wasnt it. A sensor that wasnt it.

Now the car wont run at all.
What could it be?

    It is either not getting spark or not getting fuel. The easiest way to track it down is to try a small squirt of starting fluid into air intake. If the car fires then dies it is a fuel problem check fuel pressure and so forth. It it doesn't fire with starting fluid, then trouble shoot the ignition system.

Crank sensor or module. Check fuel pressure too.

Someone would need to check base fuel pressure with a gauge, and also for an exhaust restriction, when the engine warms up.
I am assuming the check engine light is not on when the engine is running.

The side seals for the rotors are bad. the only thing you can do is pull the engine apart and replace the seals IF the side housings are good. If they are bad, you cant machine them, they are JUNK. Find a shop that rebuilds Mazda Rotary engines. Mazda may be the best place to get a reman engine.

if light on dash is on, then it sounds like a bad crank sensor. shuts off while driving down road, then will not start for about 15 minutes. heres more causes:: car shuts off when tempurature gets to normal-- low coolant, failing coolant tempurature sensor, air in water pump, failed radiator fan, it takes 10 to 15 minutes for a car to warm up. check or replace coolant temp. sensor if above is ok. have a good day !

Car stalls while driving. Will start after about five minutes. Is not flooded. Doesn't usually do this until after it has been driven a bit. Does it more in warm weather. Check engine light sometimes...


I'd have fuel pressure tested. I had a 95' did same thing. Cold winter day, worked fine, as soon as it got warmer, or hot out, it would quit, and re-start 20 minutes later and go for a distance then die again. If I parked in the shade on a hot day, I'd get further before it quit for the first time. I started carrying a fuel pressure gauge with me. Cool in the morning my fuel pressure was up to spec @ 49-50psi. Once it got warm/hot out and it died, Hooked up gauge and it was at 2-5psi. Let it sit and cool off 20-30 minutes, pressure would jump back up and run good until fuel pump got hot again and then pressure dropped off and car quit. It sure sounds like the fuel pump, but the hard part will be getting the car to the shop at the right time, or they will need to let it run on the lot until it quits to confirm the pressure drop. One thing you can try is when car quits, have a can of WD-40 or quick start with you and a screwdriver. Loosen the clamp on the air intake hose where it connects to the front of the throttle body and pull it off. With vehicle off, turn throttle linkage so the plate opens up enough to spray WD-40 a second or 2 in the throttle body. Then try to start it. If it starts and runs momentarily, then you can be pretty sure it's fuel related and my guess is the pump needs replacement.

My first guess would be that you have a bad fuel filter. Once a car sits for a while, all the sediment in the filter settles to the bottom, allow fresh fuel, when you first start it, to travel over it to the engine. After five minutes of run time, the sediments have stirred enought to clog the filter. But at high RPM's, there's enough vaccuum from the engine to pull it through the clog, which is why you were able to keep it running only after holding the pedal to the floor. The fuel filter would be an inexpensive first try.
If this does not fill your problem, go to Jiffy Lube and ask for a fuel injector flush, but that is costly.
