Question about 1992 Pontiac Grand Am

92 grand am dies while driving

I have narrowed it down to one of the possibility one injectors is going bad. While driving the car it has just died . you can stop turn the switch off a few seconds and it will crank up and run, or have to wait longer and it may run fine.or it may do this several times. A mechanic told me i could have an injector going bad causing it to die .How do i chech the injectors to see which one is failing

SOURCE: 96 pontiac sunfire bogs down and dies when I apply the gas.

as far as the bogging and dieing,it sounds like the tps.a simple trottle body service would fix that.for your new problem you need to some test before pointing to a salution.start the car and cover your tail pipe.as pressure builds it push you hand off.a clogged cat will put to much back pressure on the engine.i would un plug the mass air flow sensor and try running the car.this will turn on the check engine light.check your air filtter and plugs.also check your wires.a nother test is a coil strees test.(you have to go to a shop for this)if the car runs ok with no load but spitts and sputters in drive you may have a openning coil.checking with a meter only works if it does not run.last but not least while you at the shop,have them check your timing.a faulty cam sencer will bog the car down with bad timing advancement but not throw a code.
hope this helps,remember to keep it simple,expensive elec. parts are not always the problem

SOURCE: Car drives good but it died while driving

I'm leaning toward a bad crankshaft sensor. There's a couple of experienced GM guys on here, so we'll pass it by them first just to be sure.

SOURCE: Stalling throughout driving speeds or dies when comming to a stop

some cars have this problem when the intake manifold is loose or drawing air or the roteror cap may be defect, to check your manifold ,with a cold running moter spray a bit of starter spray (with eather) along the intake manifold , if it's leaking the moter will increase in rpm.

Is the security light on? If you have spark and fuel, it should run. Any codes? Could be bad crank sensor or cam sensor.

My 89 Grand Prix with a 2.8 just dies going down


Sounds like a bad fuel injector. Back in the day we would let them runout in the parking lot and when they stalled we would rip off the intake plenum as fast as possible and ohm check the injectors. They should be around 13 ohms. If they are significantly less, say 3 ohms, than those injectors are bad. This system bank fires the injectors. Meaning that all three injectors on the front back fire at the same time and all three of the injectors on the back bank fire at the same time. If one injector hoes bad it will shut down the whole bank which will stall the engine.

My 97 nissan maxima starts but pours gas from tailpipe and dies when i give it gas help me


Likely bad or stuck open (debris) injectors. Could possibly be a bad O2 sensor. A good mechanic can hook up an OBD reader and narrow it down.

1995 jeep grand cheerokee laredo 6 cyl. randomly dies then takes anywhere from five minutes to hours to restart


The only component I know of, that shuts a Jeep off while idling or driving 40mph down the road, is a bad crank sensor. Usually when it starts going bad, it will sporadically shut off, like yours does. Eventually, it will just die and the Jeep will not start at all. Have it tested and replaced, if necessary.

Car dies while i'm driving not when you stop just simply dies while i'm driving had the 02 sensor replaced and injectors cleaned and had a vas air syst (ma flow???) replaced and it still dies


If the check engine light is on you need to get the codes pulled. Without knowing the primary culpretes for this are intermitant crank sensor, camshaft position sensor, or knock sensor. If its not on its most likely a over heating coil or a bad ignition module. Another possibility is going to be the fuel pump going bad. However that is unlikely but possible.

1992 pontiac starts, quietly dies and backfires loudly on restart


It sounds like to me you are having problems with your fuel injectors.  In situations like these there are soooooo many different variables and possible problems, but the fact that the car is backfiring makes me believe that you are getting too much fuel in because that is what makes are car backfire.  When fuel makes it to the cat converter or muffler it will burn there and cause the backfire.  My suggestion would be to start the process of elimination with a good fuel injector cleaner.  The only one that recommend is called Greased Lightening and can be purchased at Napa and O'Reilley auto parts.  If you don't have one of these near you I would go with Techron.  Let me know if I can help you with anything else.  Thanks for letting me help you with your problem and I would appreciate an honest rating on the help that I gave you.  Thanks for using FixYa!

92 honda accord lx dies when put on brakes at a stop


Sounds like your timing belt is one tooth off on the cam, this I have seen before especially if it is a twin overhead cam. One tooth off will make it idle really low when stopping at the light especially if the engine is warm.

Jeep will just die going down doad or will not start, had a code that read camchaft sensor replaced that still the same, now i have a code that reads injector circuit malfunction i mhave changed fuel


That sounds like a bad grounding wire, or possible PCM malfunction. Check all engine wiring harness locations for any corrosion or damage. let me know what engine type you have, and I could look up the wiring schematics
