Question about 1997 Pontiac Sunfire

1 Answer

Missing when stopped or at low speeds

When I first start my car and drive it for awhile, it is okay. But then when I get to a red light or have to slow down, it intermittently misses. Doesn't always do it but if the car has been running for awhile it gets worse.

    No lights come on at all. And at high speeds it drives smoothly.

You may have a problem with dirty fuel injector nozzles try buying a quality fuel injector cleaner, run it through a couple of full tank of gas, it may help, if it does it is a cheap fix.

My 2003 Saturn Ion has an issue where at low speeds, such as stopping at a red light or stop sign, it will shutter like its about to stall. Once I accelerate, it seems to be fine and drive properly u


The coolant light is a bad thing. You need to check the coolant to see if it is low. That would cause the light to come on. IF it is low you could over heat the engine and that would cause a major problem.

2001 Pontiac Sunfire , you start the car and it starts fine no probs then put it in drive hit the gas & it won't move or it could drive okay but when you stop at a set of lights and then try to drive...


When was last time trans fluid & filter was changed? Sounds like trans filter is clogged, hopefully not badly. If it's been happening for awhile you might need trans replaced/rebuild.

Jerky accelerating, late response to gas being pressed


Well for one, make sure you speed up slowly, dont HIT the accelerator. It may also be problems with your fuel filter. After you are stoped fuel stops running through the fuel pump/filter and then when you start going its starts to run through again and it cant keep up so it gets bubbles in it and doesnt move throught the filter easily hence the jerky accelerating. Good Luck

Engine stalls at stop lights and stop signs


check the fuel regulator,while running unplug the red vacumn hose and if gas squirts out the hole,then it is bad,if not then possibly plugged catalytic converters,drive it on the highway if you can, and stop and look underneath at it and if it looks red,then replace them.Check to see if its overheating,usually a really hot hood tells the story.
