I was driving my 1993 grand am se down the free way and lost all power but not the lights or electric inside the car and now it won't start

Probably lost either spark or fuel. First try some starting fluid into the throttle body (take off the big air boot) and see if the engine tries to run on it. If it does, you need to see if the fuel pump quit working. Best is to check fuel pressure-autozone and others rent or loan fuel pressure gauges. If pressure is not there with key on, likely a bad fuel pump. (you should hear the pump turn on for 2 seconds when turning the key to on, not start-this will pressurize the lines up to the fuel rail and to the injectors. Listen for the pump to turn on.)

If you have gas up to the engine, and the starting fluid caused nothing, check for spark. Buy a spark tester from a parts store and check for spark on 2 or 3 spark plug wires. If no spark, the ignition system went out. This is often due to the Crank Position Sensor or the Ignition Control Module.

Changed fuel filter on 2002 pontiac grand am and wont start

Changing a fuel filter had nothing to do
with your no start

Do you have fuel pressure at the motor?

Do you have spark & injector pulse?

2001 pontiac grand will not start all of a sudden. ran fine this

The problem may be the security issue. Do you see a security light? Dust gets into the ignition tumbler and causes a bad contact with the sensor prompting a false security issue.

I had the same problem and thought it was a fuel pump issue, but after a $500 replacement ordeal, I later encountered the same issue again.

To resolve:
Insert the key and turn on ignition tumbler to ACC on (Position prior to engaging the starter)
Wait around ~15-20 minutes (The security light will change... I believe it will flash when the security's been a long time...sorry)
Afterward, turn the ignition tumbler and off
Your card should start there after

Tumbler maintain: Blow some compress air to prevent this incident from happening.

Hopefully this will resolve your issue without the need of spending any further $$$!

2001 pontiac grand am w/ 2.4l 4cyl

I disagree with the testing of coils, it has proved fault many times. I would check fuel rail pressure, as fuel pump commonly lose there abilty to build pressure but don't totally die. A DIS spark system should have the abilty to jump 1" with proper battery voltage. With good plugs the spark should be blue in color. The starter may be getting hot, or if it comes against compression when the engine attempts to start, it will do it's job and go back in.

No spark no gas

Did your check the ignition coil? These tend to go quite suddenly.
