Question about 1995 Pontiac Grand Am

2 Answers

Won't start I changed the plugs and wires on my 95 grand am and now after that it doesn't want to start until it cools down.And then it takes a lot of cranking to start.And if its warm after shutting it off and it starts it will run slugish and will die.Then you have to let it set for approx a hour before it will run right.All I did was changed the wires and plugs and air filter.I even put old wires back on to see if that was the problem.Plugs gap is set @ 60. .So what do you think I should do?.Maybe run it into a tree when I get it started and collect insurance and get another car.....Joking!.But not a bad idea........Dan

Hahahahahahaha i like the tree idea but actually what hapen is most likelly you did not chage the plug wires one by one
if they are not in the same spark plug then the car will miss and chake all what you have to do is to get the firing order to know where is every cylinder number location and then most of the times the coils where the plug wires conect have numbers that number belong to that cylinder number i hope and this help
and next time you ask for help make sure to include the engine size like 3.1 or 3.0 because cars come w/ diferent engines and that will help to get you a closer answer

Cranks and then goes dead


First check your fuel pressure it should be 41-47 psi with key on and engine off if its below 32 psi replace the fuel pump and filter.If fuel pump checks out to be good then take ignition switch out and check for burned ignition switch wires and worn ignition key tumblers and ignition lock cylinder.These cars are known for faulty ignition switches and ignition lock cylinders.Ignition switch gets to hot then it won't start until it cools off.

My 97 gran prix overheated and shut itself. And now won't start. The Atifrz leaked out and engine overheated.


sometimes when an engine gets hot enough it will stop running due to the metal expansion when it is hot.if it cools off it will probably start but don`t run it very long especially without coolant.the thermostat may have seized in the closed position this sometimes happens as when the car is running the temperature flucuates the stat will close and open all the time(won`t close completely).another problem could be a bad head gasket that allowed coolant into the combustion chamber enough that the motor went into what is called hydraulic lock,coolant has filled the combustion chamber enough that the piston won`t move through out its normal travel.i would try changing the thermostat first refill cooling system and let run until the cooling fans have cycled on and off.if it doesn`t overheat and it cranks over when you try to start it then the stat is more than likely the problem.

My car won't start sometimes especially if it's raining.


the fuel filter might be clogged again. Fuel pump is starting to fail, also your tank might need to be taken down and cleaned it might have water inside and debris.
