I have a 2000 MY Grand Am V6 with about 90K on the clock. Last Thursday it died after about 20 miles on the Interstate while doing 75 mph and with 1/4 tank of gas. No fault codes or error lights. Took about 10 minutes to restart and limped into work on back roads.
Same day on way home, died again after about 5 miles on the Interstate at 70 mph, and again every couple of miles (taking a few minutes to restart) until I could get off onto the back roads again. Made it home at 25-40 mph with no problem.
I changed the fuel filter next day and filled the gas tank. Next Monday and Tuesday, the car ran fine on the Interstate, but coming home on Tuesday it died on me again at 75 mph with 3/4 tank of gas. I could restart almost immediately, but it kept dying every 1/2 mile or so until I got off the highway and drove the rest of the way on the back roads (again 25-40 mph with no problem).
Do you think the fuel pump could be going bad? I don't really want to ask a dealer to find out what's wrong as I could be giving them a blank check.
Many thanks for any advice you can give.
have the same problem?
