This is caused because a misfire, misfire will be caused by defective or misrouted spark plug wires, make sure to check the firing order, on the plug wires, and if you just replace the spark plugs, then most likelly the wires are misrouted, and the cat gets hot because unburnt fuel like runing too rich, and will be related with misfire.

My 97 grand prix idles fast when i start it, normally, if i let it run for a little bit, i can shut the engine off and restart it and it gets better...any ideas?


It runs fast because the choke and or high idle are set. This is normal, after it warms up, give it a little gas and let off, it should idle down.

My 1992 Pontiac Grand Prix will not idle


the computer probably need to relearn the idle-try driving the car for 20-30 minutes,i u can. if that doesnt work,try keeping the car in drive at idle speed if possible without touching the gas pedal-even though it might stall,see if eventually the idle will raise up on its own.hope this helps you.

Won't start


This could be due to heat buildup in the starter. Your local auto parts store most likely offers an insulation material to place between the engine and the starter.
