Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2005 Grand Prix engine sputters then revs then shuts off. First to tries the car won't start.
Then the third try it fires up, engine sputters and rpms rev, then engine dies after about
10 seconds. Battery keeps everything on. The Reduced Engine Power light comes on.
Problem first arose a few weeks ago, car was sputtering while going down the road then
died. Let it sit for five hours then it started and drove fine. This happened when
temperature was about -15. Weeks went by and it drove fine and then when it was -10
one morning it had the problem above.
