Question about 2000 Pontiac Grand Am GT

1 Answer

2000 grand am gt will not start. in previous days it was hard to start but once it was going there was no problem starting it the rest of the day. when you turn the key on you can hear the pump start but it will not fire. I tried a little quick start and it started but would not keep running.

Fuel pumps are a real common problem for these cars you can hear them run and they can still be bad because they leak the fuel pressure back into the tank instead of holding steady there is a test port under the hood on the fuel rail ontop of the intake there is a plastic cap on it and if you unscrew the cap it looks like valve steam in a tire hook up a fuel pressure tester there (you can borrow one from autozone or kragen for free) fuel pressure should be at least 50psi with the key in the on position and hold there steady if its less or if the pressure starts to drop replace the fuel pump

Hi
Pop into to your local garage and have a diagnostic test carried out.
Listen to the advise given. It may save you lots of money, especially if you start the "guessing" game.
It does sound like a part may be blocked or failed though, but the sytem needs to be tested thoroughly first.
Good luck

Thermostat should help but make sure fuel line isn't too close to heat source (engine or exhaust). This can perk your gas.

2000 pontiac grand am gt turns over won't start


without acually seeing the car its hard to say but it sounds like the fuel pump is weak gm cars and trucks are touchy about fuel pressure if your off from the spec by as little as 1 or 2 pounds it wont start. it may start off the starting fluid and run but not start on its own. also try taking off the fuel filter and blowing through it and see if its plugged up this is a common cause of fuel pump failure.

Hard start and rough idle.


Sounds like it's time for a tune up of the ignition system. That would be easiest. If not, have a mechanic check your cylinder compression.

"didn't start" means the starter worked but the engine didn't ignite? Could be a vacuum lock problem. Check your fuel return and vapor recovery circuits.
