Engine Performance problem
2003 Pontiac Grand Am 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 130000 miles
Sometimes my car cranks right up, at other times it just cranks over but does not start. Sometimes when it doesn't crank, you can turn the key over and it starts, then sometimes this doesn't work. I can start the engine, turn it off and try to start again and then it just cranks but doesn't start, or sometimes it starts up again. No ryhme or reason to why. Seems to crank up right away as long as it has sat for several hours like overnight or while at work. But sometimes after only a couple of hours since last started, it won't start, just cranks. My security light has also been coming on alot lately. I have to sit with the door closed, key in ignition in off position for 15 minutes then it starts, or sometimes just cranks with no starting. The chip is in the ignition and not the key if this helps any. When the security light is on and you try to start, you get no crank or anything. Thought I'd mention in case there is a relation to these 2 things. Another thing that may be related or not is that I have a clicking noise in my dash when I turn on turn signals and doesn't go off after making turn, but I can wiggle the turn signal and windshield wiper knobs and it will stop. Sometimes this thing clicks for no reason too.
have the same problem?
