Engine Mechanical problem
1995 Pontiac Grand Am 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 104000 miles
1995 Grand AM GT, 3100 / 3.1 V6 with 104k. It runs great when it is running and seems to never have any problems, but sometimes out of the blue it seems like it is trying to run / crank, but it just won't turn over. It does not appear to be a starter problem as I can hear the starter working fine. I pump the gas and it just seems like it's not getting fuel or won't turn over. After about 20 minutes or some random amount of time, I can usually get it started by pumping the gas. One shop told me I had low fuel pressure and needed a new pump, another told me that a fuel pump wouldn't work intermittently like that, so it must be something else. Had the plugs, wires, and coil pack replaced. Also threw a code for an EGR valve going bad, but it didn't throw that code until sometime after it started this intermittent problem. No other codes noted. Any advice? I really don't have a ton of money to throw into it, but I really need it to be reliable.
have the same problem?
