Question about 1993 Pontiac Grand Am

1 Answer

'93 Grand Am only running on 2 cylinders

I have a 1993 Grand Am SE with a 4 cylinder DOHC engine, and one day while I was driving the car lost its power and didn't respond when I pushed on the gas. Found out that the car is only running on 2 cylinders. Not sure which 2, but if anybody knows what the problem could be I'd appreciate some suggestions on how to fix it or what to look at.

The common repair for the "running on 2 cylinders" is the coil pack with ignition wires.
It sits on top of the engine.
A good used one will work just as well as a new one......but at 1/2 the cost.

1993 eagle talon es with 2.0 dohc engine and 5 speed manual transmission there are only 2 cylinders working 1 and 4 are good but 2 and 3 dont work wht can i do


So i think you have 2 ignition coil packs on your car, each one connects to 2 cylinders.
But i dont know what cylinders each one controls, but the coil connected to cylinders
2 and 3 may have gone bad. Thats where i would start. If you check and find out that
one coil pack connects to cylinders 2 and 3, remove the coil packs and switch their positions.

Reconnect the wires and see if then cylinders 2 and 3 work, and 1 and 4 dont. That would tell
you whether that coil pack is bad. Thats seems most likely to me.
