Question about 2001 Pontiac Grand Am SE
I have a 1986 Toyota 22re engine, pick up 4x4. When I start it up and let it run for about half an hour and shut it off and try to start it again it won't start. It seems like once it warms up it will bog down and won't stay running.

SOURCE: will not start when engine warm
Sounds more like your ignition module is getting hot and not working. I'd go there first before replacing the ECM. You can remove the ignition module and most NAPA stores have the ability to test them for you. Make sure they test it at least 5 times. This way it'll simulate starting and stopping.

If it's an automatic transmission I'd suspect it may not be shifting out of overdrive and this is causing the shaking and stalling. There is a plug on the transmission that can be unplugged and vehicle can be driven without any damage. I've been told it's a common problem with these cars. Ask your local mechanic about it.

That does not seem to be your problem.Its likly that your air flow meter has the fault.Change that before you do any thing else.

SOURCE: my car dies when it get warm?
Hey, Bro! Try checking for vacuum leaks. Have a friend whose 94 grand am 2.3 did the same thing. Engine would shake violently when stopping... So vacuum leaks are most likely the problem. The brakes don't work good when this happens because the brake booster operates on vacuum. in fact alot of stuff works on vacuum... on hers the PCV valve hose totally wasted along with a couple other leaks! If you can't get it fixed real soon you can get it to go after stopping by stepping on the brake, revving the engine a little before placing it in gear, then slowly let out on the brake. This keeps the RPM's high enough to keep the engine running... careful though... don't rev it too high.
