Question about 2004 Pontiac Grand Am

1 Answer

I drive a 2004 Pontiac Grand am GT. Today after I had to accelerator really quickly, my car started to mess up. I would hit the gas and my RPMS would go up an then fall right back down like the car was shuttering back and forth. I parked my car after that, a few minutes later I left and turned onto a street. At that point, my whole car turns off. I have no power steering or anything. I try to start my car and nothing happened. The more I try to start it the more it starts to turn over and in less than 2 minutes my car is running again. I pull it to a safe place and turned it off and back on. I then revved my engine and everything seemed fine. I left that area and when I pulled out of a apt complex my car just died in the middle of the road and had to push it back. I let it sit for 45 minutes and then drove it back home with no problems.

It sounds like your fuel filter is getting clogged. There is enough flow to allow the engine to run at low load, but as soon as you try to dump lots of fuel into the engine, there is not enough flow, and the engine dies. Replace the fuel filter.

I have a 1998 pontiac grand am gt. It recently it has been randomly choking out and stalling while at a complete stop or while attempting to accelerate in first gear... one time when it started to choke...


Could be a vacume leak, fuel filter, MAF mass air flow sensor. If the engine light is on then go to any parts place and have a free scaning for codes that will give you and us a better idea of whats going on.
