Car will start but won't stay running .

Asked by Apr 12, 2017 at 08:37 AM about the 2004 Pontiac Grand Am SE

Question type: General

For the last couple of days my car has been acting
up. I've drove it last two days but when I get up in
morning it won't start. I used starting fluid
yesterday it worked fine all day, now today it
started but stalled right out.

1 Answer


it might be your battery or your alternator. A battery cel might have gone bad or the alternator is not putting in the right amount of voltage to charge the battery. Take it to a O'Reily or Autozone and have them test your battery and alternator.
