Most of the time on GM vehicles, a "no start" can be traced back to the anti theft security system. When this system starts to fail, it will actually disengage the starter. THE HARD PART IS DIAGNOSING IT. Check out this link for info and some "do it yourself" solutions.

Why won't my 02 pontiac grand am with a 2.2 L start or turn over?

The whining sound you hear is from a loose timing chain.It is a very distinctive sound.When you are driving the car the motor takes up the slack because its under load and the sound is less.The timing chain has become stretched over time and needs to be changed.I would also have them do the chain adjuster and any other wear part(such as a water pump on some cars) that can only be gotten to with the engine cover off.IF the chain becomes stretched any further(or god forbid snaps) you could be looking at a whole lot of damage and a lot of money to get it fixed.good luck

Hesitation when accelerating, then the car loses power while driving then i have trouble starting the car after losing power.

you may need to get your injectors cleaned the fuel filter being changed is good the coil is another good one or your fuel pump could be weak and isnt giving the proper psi of fuel to the injectors so id say clean the injectors first if thats not it the fuel pump

Certainly could be the fuel filter or the fuel pump.
However, Engine Management systems are complex and it could be a problem with the auto fuel cut-off.
Is it any better if you use higher octane fuel or just the same?
Does the problem occur more on uphill roads or doesn't it make any difference what gradient you're driving on?

Fuel pump is bleeding back so it isn't holding pressure in the lines. So when it sits long enough it is hard to start. Try turning the key on and then off wait 15 secs or so and turn key on and then off again do this one more time and see if starts. If so then you will need to replace the fuel pump in the tank soon.

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??
