Starting and stalling problem

Asked by Nov 02, 2016 at 04:15 PM about the 2007 Pontiac Grand Prix Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2007 Pontiac Grand Prix that about once a week when you go to start it dies. But if you hit the gas on the second attempt it will start. I then noticed on the rare occasion it starts sputtering. And lastly my check engine light comes on and off occasionally and I am wondering if this is possibly a fuel filter issue and if so I was under the impression with fuel injection that you should never have to hit the gas as the computer automatically puts enough gas for it to start. Or do I have a bigger issue on my hands?
