Question about 1992 Pontiac Grand Am

1 Answer

My car is bogging down and throddle respone is extreemly poor. It is putting for the most part and dying out at red lights as I start to take off. I have changed the spark plugs, idle air sensor valve, throddle position sensor and it is still acting like it is sucking gas through less than a straw. Any Suggestions??? 92 Pontiac Grand am - 2.3L single cam engine.

My 2006 Ford F-150, V-6 engine, will start but only stays running for a few seconds, then bogs out. Battery is new.


A few seconds, or like 2 seconds. Is the security like flashing? The light could be a red dot on the top of the dash. Have the codes read, takes a scanner. Check engine light on when it is running, Also check the codes, code reader will do this. Does the engine just shut off or does it bog down, like sputter till it dies?

How do slow down the idle on a 1995 chevrolet 350 engine


there not suppose to be any adjutments made for idle. high idle is usualy caused by a problem the computer is trying to confresate for something by keeping idle high ,check see if check eng light is on .check for bad coolant sensor corroted batt cables,poor battery connections, 02 sensors functions.if you really want to take down idle there is a small screw on throddle body in some model look for a air screw ,a large straight edge screw near air intke or on throddle body .but i dont recomend adjusting idle unless you ve fixed the problem that causing the pcm to raise the idle to prevent stalling of the eng

Starter kick back


If this is a gas engine, check the ignition coil or plug wires. A simple test...

Start the truck at night, then look under the hood while it's running. Don't use a flashlight or your headlights; it should be dark !

If you see sparks anywhere around the engine, you've found the problem. Now you can turn on a light to see where they're coming from - probably from a cracked ignition coil.

Good luck !

96 pontiac sunfire bogs down and dies when I apply the gas.


as far as the bogging and dieing,it sounds like the tps.a simple trottle body service would fix that.for your new problem you need to some test before pointing to a salution.start the car and cover your tail pipe.as pressure builds it push you hand off.a clogged cat will put to much back pressure on the engine.i would un plug the mass air flow sensor and try running the car.this will turn on the check engine light.check your air filtter and plugs.also check your wires.a nother test is a coil strees test.(you have to go to a shop for this)if the car runs ok with no load but spitts and sputters in drive you may have a openning coil.checking with a meter only works if it does not run.last but not least while you at the shop,have them check your timing.a faulty cam sencer will bog the car down with bad timing advancement but not throw a code.
hope this helps,remember to keep it simple,expensive elec. parts are not always the problem
