discovered the hard way- ($85.00 later) Step 1: turn key to "on" position. step 2: open driver door. (security light should be flashing on and off) step 3: wait ten minutes with key in "on position and driver door open. step 4: when 10 minutes is up-(youll know-because security light will have stoped flashing after 10 minutes) close driver door ,turn key to "off" position, then turn key "on" to start. drives me crazy!! I have to do it to mine sometimes 2-5 times a day! GM92 pontiac grand am - 2.gif doesnt have a fuel reset button etc. like fords do.

Ok I Have a 1999 pontiac grand am gt coupe. i have an engine sputtering problem when i am driving but when the car is idle it is running fine. what might be my problem and how can i fix this?

you could have spark plugs that need changing or bad plug wires.the fuel injectors could be dirty not allowing enough fuel to be idle there isn`t enough load to cause a noticeable miss fire.

My 1999 pontiac grand am(v6) runs fine till you go to get on the highway or have to go up a hill then the rpms go up the car starts to fluctuate(**** or sputter) really bad were I wonder if I will make it...

my first though is a plugged catalytic converter. This can be checked with a back pressure gauge or by dropping the exhaust where it bolts to the back manifold and then test driving to see if the power is restored.

The second that is a bad MAF sensor. It is located in the air snorkel between the throttle body and the air filter box. You can try unplugging it and see if it drives better.

Lastly it could be as simple as bad ignition wires, plugs, or a coil.

Is the check engine light on? If it is the stored codes would give you some direction to start.
