It is located back by the fuel tank on the frame rail, when you go to get a fuel filter have them check the codes for you, there could be something more going on then just a low fuel flow, write them down and repost them back here and someone will jump in and help you with further diagnosis.


A flashing check engine light is warning you the engine is misfiring and damaging the catalytic converter. If you have over 100,000 miles on your Grand Prix you're overdue for a tune up. Try that first. HTH. -Jim


All good advice, but let's get it in the right order. First check the codes, then address whatever issues are indicated by the codes, then give the care a tuneup if it hasn't had one which should include checking the fuel pump pressure and a new filter if it hasn't already been done. Hopefully that will keep you from fixing what ain't broken. Good luck.
