Question about 1996 Pontiac Grand Am

1 Answer

It started and ran fine came to a stop and it died and now it won't start. the starter was replaced in april. when you try to start it everything comes on but it acts like there is no power to turnover.the only gauge that doesn't move is the oil gauge but there is oil in it.

You need have the ignition coil checked. and the oil pressure won't move until the car is running. also check to see if your getting stark to the coil. one other thing check the engine fuse in your fuse panel

I Have A 96 Toyota Avalon xl 3.0 Car Starts And Dies!! Replaced Fuel Pump Fuesl Filter And Still Starts And Stops?


I'm not 100% clear on exactly what isn't working from your question other than now the car is starting and dying after changing the fuel pump. In that case it's possible you've oppositely attached the positive and negative wires to the fuel pump. Hope this might solve part of your problems.

Runs for 30 mins, afetr shut down it will not start (does not crank just a click click)


If the starter motor is close to the exhaust and no heat shield then probably starter is getting to hot to work. I had this problem on mine not a Mazda tho, u can either wrap the exhaust which is what I did or get a heat shield to cover stater motor

Jeep ran out of gas wont start now


low oil on some models will stop it from starting however I would say you have a fuel filter stoped up this happens sometimes when you run a car out of gas they pick up trash,

Stop on stop sign engine died


If the engine won't fire up, but your starter turns over, you may want to check your timing unless you have a check engine light on. If the CEL light is on, have the codes scanned.

If the engine won't turn over with the starter or it clicks, have your battery tested at autozone or advanced auto parts. Replace the battery if it is bad. Else, have your starter tested.

If the engine still won't turn over and the battery and starter are tested fine, you may have a blown fuse, bad ignition switch, or a failed relay.

If the engine fires up but randomly dies and starts back up, you either have a failed sensor, failing fuel pump, clogged fuel filter, bad plugs or wires, or a failing ECU.

The car sat up awhile. The battery died. We replaced the battery but the car still won't start. Everything comes on. The starter was tested and it was fine. What is the problem?


THERE ARE MANY POSSIBLE CONDITIONS THAT COULD PREVENT YOURCAR FROM STARTING. 1. NUTERAL SAFETY SWITCH IF THE CAR HAS AN AUTOMATICTRANSMISSION. 2. CLUTCH POSITION SWITCH IF THE CAR HAS A MANUAL TRANSMISSION.3. BRAKE PEDAL SWITCH. MANY NEWER VEHICLES HAVE A SWITCH ON THE BRAKE PEDAL ANDIF THE PEDAL IS NOT DEPRESSED WHILE TRYING TO START THE CAR, THE CAR WON'TSTART. ANOTHER POSSIBLILITY IS THE SECURITY SYSTEM. DOES THE CAR HAVE ASECURITY CHIP IN THE KEY? THESE ARE SOME OF THE MOST COMMON REASONS THAT A CARWON'T START FOR NO APPARENT REASON. HOPE THIS HELPS.

Car was parked and running and just killed on its own and will not start. does this sound like the fuel pump or maybe fuel filter?


If the battery is strong and charged, starter is fine, car ran okay while getting progressively worse until it died and won't restart now, might be fuel filter or pump. I've dealt with two cars with fuel filter issues. Both would idle fine, but run progessively worse under load and eventually die and not start although everything else checked out. Engine turned fast enought to start, battery strong, alternator fine, air cleaner clean, all that. No start. Changed fuel filters and done. Everything back to normal. Both cars were about model year 1990 (1989 and 1991). Replaced one in a parking lot and car fired right back up and powered on home just fine, whereas the week leading up to it it ran worse and worse, hesitated on acceleration and finally would die if you hit the gas. Fuel filter may be in engine compartment. Looks like a canister with an in and an out for fuel. Pump is in gas tank and is way more work and money. Good luck, hope this helps.
