If that doesn't fix it, it could be a problem with the security controls in the car.

I am not sure of the years, but many pontiacs use the oil pressure switch in order to determine if the fuel pump should be cut off, to avoid a fire hazard in an accident. A bad oil sender can do this exact symptom.

2000 grand prix, 3800 when it warms up losses power


I would have to say the fuel/water separator filter is clogged up. The filter will remove water and crud from the gas. It looks more like a small can under the car. If the car set up with a low tank of gas, water will condensate inside and once the new fuel sloshes around it gets all this junk off the walls of the tank and that gets sucked in the filter. Try and replace that first..

97' Pontiac Gran Prix Won't Stay running


Known GTP problem.

You most likely have a bad fuel pump resistor, which controls 2 speeds of the fuel pump.

To check to see if this is the problem, there is a trick you can do and its very easy to do. Go to the attached link, and bend the tab my finger is pointing at and then plug it back in. If your car starts and runs fine, well we just solved the problem.
