We have a 96 Grand Am that our son drove to work one day and it ran fine, when he came out after work the engine would start but would quickly shut off.

Asked by Jul 31, 2013 at 11:20 PM about the 1996 Pontiac Grand Am 4 Dr SE Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The car will start but then quickly shut off as if it isn't getting enough gas. We had it
towed to a shop but they are even stumped as to what it could be. They say they haven't
ever seen it before. Has this ever happened to anyone else. Thanks

...could be any number of failing systems at work (or not work) here...please narrow it down by having your OBD-II diagnostic codes read for us by NAPA oreilly or advance or any other auto parts store should do this for FREE...in the hopes that you buy the parts there to fix it~ or ye could buy ye own unit~
