Why does my 03 Grand Prix die while driving? Replaced fuel filter and pump. Can anyone help me.

Asked by Mar 23, 2015 at 03:28 PM about the 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was driving one day, made a left turn and lost engine power and vehicle turned off. I
coasted into a parking lot and tried to restart. I could not get to start so I had it towed
home. I tried again the next day and the car started fine. I drive it again to the corner
store and it started back up fine after turning it on and off. My wife used the car a few
days later to run errands. On her way back home the car died again but restarted after
a few minutes. I replaced fuel filter and fuel pump but still get the same results. If you
have any advise I would very much appreciate it.

Do you get a message saying Low Power to Engine? If so, you may want to change your MAF sensor - that was the problem I had and that fixed it.
