2000 Pontiac Grand Am 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 117000 miles
While driving from the airport in Albuquerque New Mexico to Pecos New Mexico at around 80 mph my Gand Am just stopped with no warning. When I coasted to the side of the road I crossed some very very high rumble strips and after stopping, tried to start the car, it started after about 2 or 3 minutes and I continued from about 5 miles south of Santa Fe to half way between Santa Fe and Pecos, a distance of about 12 miles, where it stopped again and has not started yet. A mechanic friend of mine said fuel pump but at 271 dollars I wanted to get another opinion. I have checked for spark and there is spark, sprayed starting fluid into intake and it runs till fluid dissapates. I was wondering about the fuel pump relay or fuse etc. I have not checked those yet. There is no codes set, at least the SES is not on.
Also increased altitude by 2000'
