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
service engine lite is a reminder that vehicle is up for service such as oil change--tune up transmission filter etc,2 ways you didnt specify year of grand am --turn key on not start and pump gas pedal 3x should go out ---other turn on not start and push options on display than bring up service than hit reset
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.
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.
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.
