Make/Year: 1996 Pontiac Grand Am SE 2.4L Engine
Owned: Since May 2005
1. Recently I've been having trouble starting up the car. I turn the key and the car cranks, the engine starts up and runs then dies a second later. I know it can't be the spark plugs because they were changed at 100,000 miles. My hunch is that the fuel filter needs to be changed. Because when I leave the key in the " on" position, I can hear the electric fuel pump working. Its gotten worse since the air is cold. If I am right where is the fuel filter located?
2. The dashboard is completely dead. When the car is on all that works is the milage guage. The speedometer, tackometer, water temp, and fuel gauge are stuck in a random position and the water temp light as well as the fuel warning light are stuck on. What needs to be done to get this fixed?
