Your problem may be a faulty (shorted) ignition coil housing assembly (the white plastic cover housing the coils its bolted to the aluminum cover) change that along with the spark plug boots ( the boots are optional but I recommend it) that should get your Grand Prix running smooth. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help

SOURCE: I have a 1997 nissan quest and no I changed coil

I guess you have checked the sparkplug and power wires and they are ok. In that case the only thing left is the electronics module of the engine -  go to a repair shop and connect it to a tester, it's most likely fried . You can't fix that, replace it

I would make sure you have voltage to the coil. Could be a fuse or relay problem. Is the check engine light on when you turn the key on ?

To install:
