Asked by Dec 23, 2015 at 08:39 PM about the 2001 Pontiac Grand Am GT

Question type: General

We put gas in and it started. So he went to th gas station and put 5 dollars in.
The pump would not let any more in. He was able to take care of some things
which he said things were fine for a couple of hrs. Then he stopped at
another gas station to get a drink. Went to start the car. And it did the same
thing as stated above. Turns over but no start.

Check your fuel filter,

Should be on driver rail near tank,

Spray some starting fluid down the throttle body. If it runs a few seconds on the starting fluid it's a fuel problem. Possibly a dying fuel pump or bad connection at the fuel pump as indicated by the erratic gas gauge. If it won't run on the starting fluid it's an ignition (no spark) problem. HTH. -Jim
