Sounds like one of two things, first things first make sure your car has gas in it sometimes the gage can be off and show gas in it when there is very little, if the car is parked on a hill that could also be letting the gas flow away from the fuel pump also causing the car to sputter, If it has gas then your fuel pump is out and will need replaced. hope this helped

    Don't know if it's the same prob I had or not. I have a 2001 Grand Prix & had it cut out on me while driving, would cut out on me intermetantly. turned out to be ground wire coming out of the wire harness that plugs onto the fuel pump. Also fuel gauge wire was coming out of the wire harness too.

Forst off- buy obd2 bluetooth from ebay, it is cheap as chips and with torque app you can read faults. It may be many things, but if with new battery engine won't turn over it may as well be that the engine is having some incredible internal resistance e.g. it is dead. (Well, fixable but expensive). It's easy to check though. Get the car on tow and try to start it this way. If it gives you trouble still try to use fifth gear while towing, to get things moving. If you've never started car this way- ignition on- get some speed, gear in and clutch up. Be careful not to tailgate the towing car though. My friend had a problem like this once. Three different mechanics told him that the engine is dead. Beyond sensible repair. So I towed him to the scrap yard. In order to have brakes working properly he kept the car in fifth every time we had to slow down. Few miles down the road at scrappies the engine started like new and had no problems for another year. No idea what was the problem. Try - and listen what is going on.

Car will start and cut right off


When it won't start you will need to check for spark and fuel pressure to figure out if you are dealing with the ignition system or fuel system.
Is the check engine light on when the engine is running ?

FUEL PUMP MAKES NOISE PRESSURE GAGE READS 40 PSI ENGINE BEGINS TO SPUTTER MY PRESSURE GAGE DROPS TO ABOUT 20 PSI


Fuel pump is bad. At idle pressure should read 50 PSI. Replace with original manufacture fuel pump after market pumps will burn out fast and are unreliable from my experience. Also could have a bad fuel regulator but that only works while driving down the road full throttle. You can unhook the fuel rail pressure regulator and that will give it full fuel and the pressure reading should read 60 PSI while it is running. If you turn the engine off and turn the key to run position it should read 50 PSI and hold for 60 seconds, if it drops below 30 PSI after 30 seconds Pump is defective. Many pumps are going bad here of late as people have been running them less than ¼ tank and this kills the pump. The fuel cools and lubricates the pump so the lower the fuel level the worse it is on the pump below ¼ tank. Not to hard of a job to do if you want instructions let me know.

There are commom problems with the wiring harness that connect to the back side of the ignition housing. Tend to short inside the plastic housings. Take the scrowd off. 2 screws hold it on the ignition housing...it;s round and the wiring runs down the column . remove the 2 screws and disconnect the wiring harness under the dash. go to dealership around 50.00. post response if this helps.

Ignition fault


I had the same problem.After getting the car towed back to my house, I 'd tried to start it one last time before beginning to troubleshoot and it would start right up. After replacing a couple of things, which didn't help, it finally turned out to be the KEY ! It seems that the chip on the key was starting to go bad.I replaced it and haven't had any problems since.
