2001 Pontiac Grand Am 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 126, 5 miles
After nearly killing my wife by shutting off while driving in the passing lane preparing to exit left I replaced the fuel filter first. It did it again in the same place so I replaced the electric fuel pump with upgraded 'pig tail'. Then I replaced the fuel pump relay in the fuse panel under the hood.
The engine kept shutting off so we had a mechanic check for codes. (Misfire on # 3 cylinder was the only code that came up). Then new coil packs and tower.
Followed by crank sensor, then cam sensor, then a new alternator. After months of restarting we had to repalce the starter and the ignition switch.
After months of awaiting for another mechanics opinion we replaced the computer. The vehicle is still not servicable or dependable after 15 months and hundreds of dollars. What next?
have the same problem?
