Go to autozone and borrow their OB-II reader and download the codes. They will tell you specifically what system is kicking the light.

Why does my 2000 grand am keeps shutting off?

Check the fuel pump to make sure is working properly. You can check the pressure in the front engine where the yellow fuel symbol is. Does it have the Check Engine light on ? More details would be helpful

My 1995 grand am engine light comes on when i drive 60 mph,but when i shut it off the light will be gone

On a vehicle that is an older car, most likely with higher mileage, you more than likely need to replace the O2 sensor, (oxygen sensor). This will increase your performance,and, as well you will see a positive increase in your miles per gallon.

Trac Off Light what does it mean ?

First things first.... Is your car low on gas( gas light). Second look for a traction control shut off switch in your owners manual , find it in the car and press the button, you may have hit the button and not know it. The service engine soon light needs to be scanned and cleared with the code or codes documented.

I have a 1998 pontiac grand am gt. It recently it has been randomly choking out and stalling while at a complete stop or while attempting to accelerate in first gear... one time when it started to choke...

Could be a vacume leak, fuel filter, MAF mass air flow sensor. If the engine light is on then go to any parts place and have a free scaning for codes that will give you and us a better idea of whats going on.

I have a 2002 grand am and less than a year ago had to replace cadalitic converter. The check engine light would come on once in awhile, and the car will start to bogg down. It started out as intermitent then eventually all the time. The smell may be the heating up of the converter.
