I have a 94 Pontiac Grand Am. Its a 4 cylinder. When I start my car it runs fine, but as soon as I turn it off and try to start it back up it don't want to start up. It acts like it wants to but it don't turn over all the way. I can let it sit for a few hours then come back and it starts. I had people tell me its my battery, then I had someone tell me its the censor. I don't want to spend money on something thats not messed up on it. Someone please help me!!!
Welll i have a 2000 grand am se and mine would shut off in mid drive and would also not want to turn back on after i shut it off. for me it was the fuel pump and could possibley be the same for u. the pump wants to cool down because it is over heating. so when it dosnt want to turn back on try to start it with starting fluid and if it runs off of that it is most likely your pump! good luck

Once again do any spark plugs fire in any cylinders? In other words do you have partial ignition? If it doesn't fire at all. Then it may be a faulty ignition mudule pobably due to over heating module or age. How many miles on the car?

i have a 98 grand am. When i get to about 60 mph my rmps stick around 2rmp. the car bucks, kinda like its stuck there. i have changed the map sensors (per autozone that was the problem) but it still does it. if i apply alittle more gas it 'unsticks' for alittle and then does it again. sometimes it's really bad other times not so much. PLEASE HELP!! any ideas!!

I have an 00 Grand AM GT. Lately I've been having my service engine soon light come on. I had it checked and it was a cylinder misfire. I replaced all my spark plugs and the wires a month ago. When the light first came on about 3 weeks later I rechecked the wires to make sure they were on securly, the were. The next day the light went off. Since then it's came on and off twice without me doing anything to it. Could this be one of those strange Pontiac electrical issues or an actual issue with the wires or plugs??

Try smelling it. Dex-Cool is pink. Which is coolant, and very important. If it is, flush it out and replace your head gaskets and replace with normal fluid.
Check your power steering levels.

My friend just gave me his old 92' grand am it has been sitting for awhile but the problem is it won't start. I changed the fuel filter, spark plugs and cables. I have two main questions where is the drain for the oil, and what could be causing it to kick over but not start any ideas or troubleshooting tips would be greatly appreciated.
