Question about 2002 Pontiac Grand Am

1 Answer

02 Grand Am SE - Won't start

I've had the car for 2 months, haven't had a problem or signs of a problem. Yesterday, I took it to work, the store, a friends house with no problems with it fired right up every time. I stopped at my usual gas station and put $10 in it and went to my aunts house and sat for about 2 1/2 hours and then when I went to leave, the car started but immediately stopped. When I tried to crank it up it wanted to but didnt, so I'd wait a few minutes and try again but nothing happened and I did this repeatedly until I was afraid that it would flood out. So its not started, I thought maybe it was the fuel pump, or maybe I got some watered down gas with the way it did this just out of the blue. It showed no indication of the battery or altenator having issues.............what do you think?

    My son left for work to today and got about a 2 miles away from the house and the suddenly stoped. It has spark and it sounds like it is doing the same thing as the email before. We also thought it might be the fuel pump, can you give us any suggestions on what to check please.

    My husband came home from work and it ran fine, then when I tried to leave for work it wouldn't start. We have checked all fuses dealing with the fuel pump. We replaced the ignition control module about 6 months ago. Please help me. We want to get it fixed so we can see our son graduate from the US Army

One of the easier ways to check a fuel pump is to turn the key to the on position and listen by the gas tank. You should hear the fuel pump turn on and then turn off after a couple of seconds when it reaches the proper PSI. If that seems to be working fine, there are a few different things it could be.

I just want an estimated time it takes to change a fuel pump in the 2002 pontiac grand am se? (it's in the tank and when I take it in the shop, I want an idea, so as not to get ripped off on the time it...

Any repair shop can look up the time in the labor manuels for you. If you have a couple days and enough tools do it your self. The main issue is how did you test for a bad pump and is that your problem??

My 2001 Pontiac Grand Am doesn't want to start. I replaced the fuel pump and fuel filter about a month ago. It has been running good! Yesterday the dash lights didn't turn on and the car won't start again.

Had the same problem, turned out to be the security system, when the security system has a glitch, the car's computer stops the fuel pump from working to prevent theft, so if you have changed your stereo to an after-market brand, make sure that you have installed a GMRC-1 box, this helps to avoid this problem.
