Question about 2004 Pontiac Grand Am

1 Answer

My 03 grand am acts like no gas and wont start.

We filled the car up 2 days ago and only took one close distance trip since then. while driving the car sputtered and then shut down and will not restart. i tried various security methods like turning the car to "on" for 15 mins and "off" for 5 and then start. it will start up but now is acts like the fuel will not reach the engine to stay on. we tried a spray bottle with fuel in it and sprayed in the intake valve and the car will stay started, but as soon as we stop spraying the car shuts down. what gives? is there an emergency fuel shut off?

    Remove the gas cap to let the pressure equalize. I hope you do not top off at the gas pump. Add one can a RED bottle dry gas from auto part store to water in fuel. Locate fuel pump relay and be prepare to swap with other relay inside the fuse box. You may need a jump if you can not get the engine. Used the 2nd key to rule out immobilizer /security problem.

Well, something is blocking your fuel line, try replacing the fuel filter and clean the fuel pump, rust might be blocking it. if you have time try draining your fuel tank too then get rid of the rusts. this will surely help

(if engine is good, not overheated )
its only 1 of 2 things.
lost spark (do a spark test using , yes, a test good spark plug)
if spark is good on all cyl
then check fueling, if spark plugs not soaked in fuel (tips)
then try test fuel.
if soaked, the op guide says, hold throttle fully open (depressed 100%) this cuts INJECTIONS 100% and you start a flooding motor)

This sounds like your fuel pump. See if you are getting fuel to the fuel rail. Sometimes giving the vehicle a good shake will help it to temporarily start. Also try the relay.

Have you checked that you have power to the coil on cranking?You may also want to check wether you have a good strong spark at the spark plug.It could be an ignition module breaking down.If you have no power to the coil you may need to change the ignition relay.Its close to the battery.

Wont let me put gas in it


There is a vent tube that runs down into the tank, it is part of the fill pipe, it allows air to come out of the fuel tank while you fill it, they get kinked or otherwise restricted, that is the only thing that will cause this problem.
