2002 Pontiac Grand Prix. After replacing the fuel pump in my car, it stays running but if you take it to 55 / 60 after 3-5 Minutes it dies. Why?

You need to test the fuel pressure that the fuel rail in the engine. Test it with just the key on, and then test it with engine running. If it is within specs you need an auto electrician with a pro grade scan tool computer to read the live data as the event happens.

Why does my 02 Pontiac Grand Prix stay running but dies after driving it for five minutes after changing the fuel pump

First you need to determine if it is a fuel problem or electrical problem. Using a fuel pressure tester will help. Secure it to your windshield so that someone can watch it and when it does take note of the pressure, You can also run a noid tester to see if the injectors are loosing current and a spark plug tester. Simple second, hook up a scanner and see what codes are present and what information you get when the engine dies.

2007 Pontiac Torrent. How to bypass security deterrent system please?

Quite simply, you can't. The system is designed to stop exactly what you are trying to do, start the car and drive it without the correct credentials. You have to fix the problem (which you don't tell us - ex boyfriend is behind on his payments to which you are guarantor and you want to boost the vehicles and use it yourself - It is the next door neighbours and it is in your way but the door is open and you want to move it- you lost the keys, even though every car sold has two sets of keys as standard equipment). There is no way around the problem. The system is sensors, the transponder chip in the key, the receiver in the steering column, the anti-theft module, the Body Control Module and the Engine Control Module. Simply not possible. Call out an auto-electrician, an auto locksmith, or contact the dealership for replacement keys based on the VIN Number. There is no easy way.

2007 Pontiac G5. How to disable the security antitheft system on a 2007 Pontiac G5

Question edited for clarity. Presumably 'antithetic' was supposed to be anti-theft? Question moved from Kitchen Appliances category! Short answer, you can't. The system is there to stop exactly what you are trying to do, drive the car without the correct credentials. You have to fix whatever the problem is (you don't tell us that), not try and find a way to bypass. The antitheft system is made up of sensors, the anti-theft module, the BCM and the ECM.

Pontiac Grand Am. Would a 2003 be interchangeable with a 2005 Grand Am.

check version history, 99 to 05 and then 03 to 05 for coupe. 1999-2005 This section needs additional citations for verification. Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed.

The length was shortened slightly, but the wheelbase grew by more than three inches (76 mm). The suspension was now fully independent, with a revised MacPherson-Strut design upfront. The rear suspension is a more refined Multi-link design. The new Grand Am was offered in five trim levels: SE, SE1, SE2, GT, and GT1. The 2.4 L Twin Cam engine was carried over, with 150 hp (112 kW; 152 PS) and 155 lb?ft (210 N?m) of torque. GM's 3400 V6, previously exclusive to their minivans, became available as an option on the SE and SE1 and was standard on all other trim levels. For 1999, all the Grand Ams featured a 4-speed automatic transmission. The GT and GT1 also included 4-wheel disc brakes,[38] and all Grand Ams until 2003 included standard ABS and Traction Control (made optional on SE from 2003). The GTs also had a Ram Air induction system, providing an extra five horsepower and 5 lb/ft of torque over the 3.4 L V6 when installed in any of the SE-level trims. The 2000 models added a Getrag 5-speed manual transmission as standard equipment with the four-cylinder. On GT models, the badge on the front fenders now read "RamAir V6", instead of "V6H.O." on 1999 GT's. ASC Creative Services designed the Grand Am SC/T for the SEMA show circuit, which was the concept design for the Ram Air hood and body package. The SC/T later became an appearance package, beginning in 2003. A road test by Car and Driver showed a 0-60 mph time of 7.7 seconds in a GT sedan with an automatic.[36] For 2001, the SE2 trim level was dropped, a new family of Delco stereos and new wheel designs was introduced. The radio size in 2001 also changed from a 1.5 DIN size to a full 2 DIN size. Halfway through 2002, the Twin Cam 2.4 L engine was replaced by a new 2.2 L Ecotec four-cylinder, which had improvements over the engine it replaced, but produced less output; 140 hp (104 kW; 142 PS) and 150 lb?ft (203 N?m) of torque. Changes for 2002 also included a stationary cup holder in the center console as opposed to a removable one. The body cladding on SE models was removed in 2003, a change which affected other models throughout Pontiac. Also in 2003, anti-lock brakes and traction control were made optional on the SE. In 2004, an MP3 player was added to the uplevel CD player. In 2005, Pontiac began phasing out the Grand Am lineup for the new G6 replacement. SE sedans were retained for fleet sale and GT coupes were the last Grand Am model available for public sale. 2003-2005 Pontiac Grand Am GT coupe The final Grand Am rolled off the line at Lansing, Michigan's, Lansing Car Assembly plant on May 10, 2005, shortly before the Lake Orion, Michigan plant began assembling G6 coupes. This was also the last car to be made at Lansing's old Fisher Body plant. Available engines:
  • 1999-2002: 2.4 L DOHC Twin Cam L4 (LD9 model) engine: 150 hp (110 kW), 155 lb?ft (210 N?m) of torque
  • 2002-2005: 2.2 L DOHC Ecotec L4 engine: 140 hp (100 kW), 150 lb?ft (200 N?m) of torque
  • 1999-2005: 3.4 L 3400 OHV V6: 170 hp,(175 for GT) 200 lb?ft (270 N?m) of torque (205 for GT)[39]

My 2003 Pontiac Sunfire's a/c compressor is making a noise but the a/c still works. Could it be something besides the compressor needing replaced?

It maybe the clutch in the compressor. Some are replaceable and some are not. Not sure what it is in.

I have a 2008 Pontiac G5 that will not crank I think it's the anti theft lock how do I bypass it and it's been sitting for 8 ,months and someone ripped the ignition switch out

To fix your problem Fix what they ripped out first. You can get the key/lockset and ignition switch at parts stores. Fix wiring also if needed. After it is back to normal. Do a relearn for the key. Put a battery charger on the battery( you don't want it to go below 8 volts). Turn the key on for ten minutes, off for thirty seconds. Three times. Then try to start. If the voltage gets to low or you hit the starter at any time, you have to start over. This will reprogram passlock III keys to the security.

2008 pontiac g5 2.2l, manual transmission says reduced engine power and when I turn the key over, the starter makes a spinning or whirring sound and won't turn the engine over

It sounds like you might have a couple issues. Did the vehicle stall and then not start? Are there any codes stored related to reduced engine power? But the starter could be bad and not actually engaging the flywheel, causing a whirring noise.Or... Hopefully not this scenario.... the timing chain could be bad. An easy way to check is looking through oil fill cap to see if you can watch the camshaft spin/turn over. Can you remove oil fill cap and see the camshaft? Or is there a baffle in the way?Was it the main engine wiring harness or just a pigtail ? If it was the main engine harness, why was it changed?

My Pontiac G6 GT 3.5 won't shift into fourth gear the rpms just get higher and there is no check engine light on.

Question edited for clarity and autocorrect typo. Question moved to a G6 GT category.
