2001 grand am 2.4l burning oil and after awhile of driving it will die


If it is burning oil it is burning oil. This means your rings have gone bad. Vehicle will still run if it isn't too bad. As for the engine dying I would guess this is caused by another problem. Any check engine light on? If so get it scanned and see what the code is. Good Luck

Acts like its running out of gas while in drive but not while in neutral


a blocked fuel filter would do this when your driving the blockage is too much to pull the fuel through but at idle the pressure is low enough not to be a problem , have the filter changed and see if any better..

It sounds like your ignition coil is overheating. Once it cools down it will fire properly until it gets hot again. Replace the ignition coil and you should be all set.

Dies at Idle and decelration - won't start for 15


Hello. I bet your problem is one of these two things. 1: your timing is out. Making it run at such a low idle that it stalls itself out. 2: your truck is running too rich and flooding itself out. Just adjust theb timing a bit and lean the motor out a bit and you should be as good as new! Hope this helps!
