Sounds like your injectors are dirty. i have a 95 with a 3.1 motor that hapens on it I get a can of SEA FOAM INJECTOR CLEANER put in with a 1/2 tank of gas. that takes care of that. mite take several miles to work. Cost less than 10 dollars. worth a try. Menards, Auto Zone ect should have it. Good Luck. Joe let me know if this works

#2579 of 2590 1997 Pontiac Grand AM headache...can anyone help?!
Apr 03, 2010 (12:40 pm)
Nephew over heated our Grand am and destroyed the head. We just replaced the head, gaskets, spark plugs, boots, radiator, heater core, all hoses, alternator, water pump, battery and starter. We then noticed the ignition module housing was cracked so we replaced that and the coil packs. Ignition module was tested and passed all three times. Now the car won't fire. It isn't getting spark to spark plugs and the new battery keeps draining. We thought maybe it was a timing problem but it isn't back firing while trying to start. Fuel is in the line but not getting to the plugs either. Maybe electrical?! Help any ideas are better than none...thanks

Did you just buy regular spark plugs? If not then it may just be that the wires you have now are not capable of delivering. If you bought higher performance spark plugs you may want to look into upgrading your spark plug wires. I'd suggest 9mm racing wires if they are high performance spark plugs. If they aren't, I really cant think of anything else that you could do. It sounds like you've done everything ( that I can think of ) . I'll ask around and try to find out what else it could be.

Every part including spark plugs were factory ordered, boots too! That is why we are now thinking a wire has been crossed. My brother in-law set the timing and I am wondering about that as well. I do believe the car can start if the timing is off and wouldn't have anything to do with not having a spark...but not positive about that! Thanks for responding...Let me know if you have anymore idea's. I am getting ready to have it put on a machine.
