Usually caused by one of two things: Lack of fuel or too much fuel. Check the Fuel Filter, injectors, then pump. Check in that order. Then check fuel pressure with a gauge. Can you hear the fuel pump come on when you turn the key to on? If these are fine, check the timing out. Then cylinder compression test and vacuum leak check.

I got a 1995 Pontiac Grand Am 2.4 liter twin cam engine with a loud rattling noise when started then bogs down then press the gas and it dies


Not a good idea to press the gas while there is a loud rattling noise from the engine. The resulting cost can be very painful.

I strongly suggest the source of the noise is located and rectified as a priority before worrying about anything else. You might be lucky and find that action will cure both problems.

Car idles fine, but sputters, bogs and dies if gas pedal is pressed.


new spark plugs this decade. (a tune up?0
the filter is part of all 60k tuneups. letting it clog wrecks good pumps.
my wild guess, its lack of fuel flow, do to old filter.
or low fuel pressure.
car is identical to a Corolla. so is not unique or rare as some Geo cars are.
the cam belt not changes, invites valve kissing piston tops. BOOM
end of engine. (costs more to fix then worth of car)
the word is bogging, my engine bogs
if if bogs WOT (wide open throttle) and dont catch up < ITS NOT THE TPS. ever.
tps bad causes short bogs, called hesitations.
The map sensor , is what measure air flow and the ECU matches fuel to this air flow.
my guess, is it does that, but fuel pressure is like 15PSI, bad.

Check engine light on? What are the code numbers. The symptoms sound a lot like a bad Mass Air flow sensor.

Fuel delivery problems?


Okay this vehicle is 27 years old. It may well have out lived its usefulness. Have you thought about getting a newer vehicle that does not cause such problems?

1976 Ford F150 Bogs down when accelerater is pressed.


if it has a converter on it.....it may be stopped up, but before you replace it have the fuel pump checked, as it may not be getting enough gas at higher rpms. It will start and idle fine, but starve out when you press the pedal. Have you changed the fuel filter?That will cause the same problem.....

Try changing the fuel filter. You may want to consider a Weber carburetor conversion. That Asian carb is old
