Engine Mechanical problem
1995 Pontiac Grand Prix 6 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic
Two times recently, my Pontiac Grand Prix engine has gone dead while driving. The firs time, I had only driven about a block and half and the second time I had driven approximately 20 miles.
Also, I had a problem with the car " clicking" when I would tyr to crank it. This was sporadic. At times it would crank up immediately and other times it would click several times then crank. A local repait shop replaced the starter but the car would still click occassionally. One time, after the starter was replaced, the engine immediately begun to crank but during the cranking process, I could hear a rapid clicking, such as you hear when there is a battery of battery connection problem.
Last Friday, the engine would not turn over or make any noise whatsoever when I tried to crank it. I had to have it jumped off with a " jump box" in order to get it to start. My husband replaced the battery (but not the battery cables) and it now cranks fine, but went dead this morning while I was driving.
The car cranks back up with no problem after going dead.
I appreciate any advice you can offer.
