Question about 1996 Pontiac Grand Am
The ECU have may have detected an error. A scanner would tell you the error code is to determine accurately the problem. If the gauge checks out OK, the car's computer may be faulty that it causes the shutdown early. If you know someone who has the same car and engine and try out the ECU on your car to check if it is not a ECU malfunction. If it is not the ECU it could be a blown head gasket or worn out. It could also be the ignition system, the sparks may not be firing when the temp increases on your engine. An ignition coil or distributor that is on its way to break down may nor work properly due to heat. You may want to have it tested either by observing the sparks or trying out another unit, a spare or a borrowed unit.
