I would try this distributor, in fact, the coil and and distributor would be the first guesses of mine, after oxygen sensor. However, I would also ask them to do a compression test, and check the fuel PSI.

2004 PONTIAC GRAND PIX STALLS WILL NOT START BACK UP SOMETIMES STARTS AND RUNS GREAT THEN WILL JUST STALL WILL NOT START FRO DAYS


Fuel filter, fuel pump, fuel pressure regulator, Idle air control valve, mass air flow sensor, faulty plugs, faulty injectors. If there is any codes set that is where I would start. The check engine light code is going to tell you somewhat what is going on. There are too many different things that there can be. My guess is mass air flow sensor or something with the fuel.

Check all of your ground wires. don't matter how they look take them all off and shiny clean with sandpaper replace tight. You may also want to check for vacum leaks.

High low idle, rough idle stalling


If it's surging, make sure your radiator is full. Do a tune up, plugs, wires, etc. Put some fuel injector cleaner in your fuel tank. On a cold start the vehicle compensates for being cold by adding fuel. Once it warms up the computer tells it to quit adding extra fuel. If it is a bad sensor of sorts, check engine light should come on.

Try blowing out your Airlines with a air compressor just disconnected the linesshit from the fuel pump and from the injection port and just blow it out start with low pressure and slowly work your way up. If that doesn't help you most likely have a leaky injector

If it's fuel-injected, you may need to have the injectors cleaned, and also, any air filters should be changed at the same time along with gas filter/s. If it's carbureted, the same as above, but have someone clean the carburetor completely. Make sure all air hoses are attached correctly, securely and NOT broken. If broken, replace them.

If your vehicle has one, and I think it does, check your EGR system. If the egr valve is full of carbon, it can be partially open, creating a vacuum leak. If the egr valve solenoid is bad, it could be opening the valve at the wrong time, also creating a vacuum leak. Unplug the egr vacuum hose, plug the open end of the hose and start it and see what it does. A picture of the egr is below.

1990 chevy lumina, idling problem...stalling...too rich


Stalling and running rich. I have seen this before on a Camero. The fuel pump was weak. Not making enough pressure. This caused the fuel injector to DRIP gas instead of SPRAY gas. This caused the fuel to flow into the cylinder in a liquid form, and it did not burn well. We put in a new fuel pump and the car came to life. Good luck.
