That's a difficult issue to solve. There are several different things that could cause the problem. I've seen it happen w/ a faulty ground to the fuel pump on a similar car. It could also be a faulty relay, bad crankshaft position sensor, or some other electrical problem. Either way it could be very expensive to fix unless the problem makes itself evident, whence leaving you stranded. A lot of intermittent problems can take a long time to troubleshoot w/ all the electrical stuff on these newer cars which makes the price very high unless you can troubleshoot it yourself or have a good friend that can. lol.

Hello all, I have a 1991 grand prix and this is my problem. The car sometimes starts up fine and then other times it doesn't. Its completely random and not weather dependant. I have a spark, I have fuel and I have air.
Please any suggestion will be greatly appreciated.

My wife's car. Sometimes when she uses the car, and drives a short distance and shuts down the car it won't restart. I does it often after she gets gas for it. The car will turn over and try to start then it will choke down. Then after repeated attempts to start it, it will finally start. It's almost like it's not getting fuel. I've replaced the plugs, wires, and fuel filter. It shows no codes on the computer. Could the fuel lines get air in them and cause this? I'm lost. Sometimes it does it and sometimes it doesn't. I need some help bad.

Hi. It's sounds like you have the same problem that I do with my 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix GT. DID you figure out why your wife's car won't start at times? I replaced the plugs, wires, and fuel filter on my car as well but it did not help...
Any ideas? If I figure out something, I will reply to your post & let you know as well!

No pump hasn't been changed. It just started out of the blue. It won't do it all the time, just when there is a line of people behind you at the gas pump.

The car runs fine. It has a new alternator, plugs, wires and batt around a year old and tested fine in the car. The volts read fine when it doesn't start. It makes a click noise and doesn't turn over at all. I turn the key back and try again and it will start but the engine will rev up high then idle normal. I cleaned out the idle air control valve and even swapped it with my other car which was fine and it still does this. The only thing it does idle a little rough under load of turn signal. I just bought the car for a good price and don't want to put too much money in it right now. It has the 3.1 Multi port engine with around 93000 miles. Please can anyone help i am afraid of getting stuck. Thank you!
