Have you checked your alternator?

SOURCE: loses power while in drive.

To what degree do you lose power and in what way? Do you loose over-drive or does it loose power and speed (on the streets, highway, or at any speed). From your discription it does sound like either a fuel flow/pressure issue or a clogged cat.

99 grand am was driving home battery was about to die so i tried to make it home before it died


Can't say what the thud was..but it certainly sounds like your alternator is not charging your system.. When it isn't charging and the car is running off the battery the car will do some weird things as it loses its.battery power then just die....Auto zone should have found that and not just charge the battery..get yourself a small car charger at autozone $25 -40 or so and charge it again and have them make a full charging system check..good luck..

I haver a 98 chevy astro 4.3 all wheel drive it was sitting for a month and then i went out started to let it run i drove it a block down the road and it died no sighns of anything it will start run for...


Its likely the fuel pump its not the coil . When was the last time you had the fuel filter changed. No matter its not your fault. I personialy owen one of these a 96 4.3 this is a problem with these vehicles 95 through 99 that i know of and i think even later modals. They will last 10 years if your lucky and don't put a lot of milage on them. The pump is in side the fuel tank and the tank has to come down to replace the pump. But they fixed the problem and if you repair it you should not ever have this problem again chevy got away with one it should have been a recall. Sorry its not happy news at christmas but i see 10 of these a day same problem you have same years

When you remove your thermostat check the number stamped on the thermostat. In cold weather you want a high number and opposite cold weather. Right back with number

1994 AWD Astro van overheated, then lost ALL power


it seems that the engine blew. the rings, rod bearings, main bearing etc. Sorry but it sounds like that. Especially the smoking at the exhaust. take it back to the one who sold it to you.If possible.
