2000 Pontiac Grand Am 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 196000 miles
So tonite, while I was driving at about 75 mph, my car started losing power going up a hill. When I pulled over to the shoulder and pulled to a full stop, the oil lite and the battery lite came on, and it just stopped. I turned the car off, put my hazards on, and just let it sit for about 20 minutes. The car started up and ran like nothing for about 15 minutes, then it happened again. This happened about five times til I got to where I had to be. I let the car sit for about 45 minutes, it rode fine for about 30 minutes, and then the same thing. Now I was trying to make it home with my son, so I just kept sitting and waiting and then starting it up, but I was sitting for shorter intervals, so it would stay running strong for shorter intervals. The last time that it happened before I just left the car, it wouldn't even start for about 15 minutes. Then it started and it was fine, but I just parked it in a parking lot for the nite, and I will go back tomorrow to pick it up. What could this be? It happened once before, and we thought it was bad gas, so we stopped using that gas station. Now it happened again from a different gas station. HELP, PLEASE.
have the same problem?
