Having problems with your 2004 Pontiac Grand Am ?
The car cranks too much and sounds as though
\015 I have a 2004 Grand AM 6 cyl with 75,000. Plugs haven't been changed yet...\015\012\015\012The car cranks too much during start and sounds as though it's not getting enough fuel. I have to come to that assumption based on other things. Specifically, if I shut the ignition off and then try it again it normally starts right up. Thus, it seems as though by turning the ignition part way, the engine gets primed. However, turning the ignition part way (and then off) needs to be done at least once before turning the ignition all the way.... \015\012\015\012If the car has been driven for a while, and then I shut it off it will almost certainly not start the first time (shortly after it's been shut down). However, as I mentioned, I can get it to start right up if I simply turn the ignition part way, turn the ignition off, and then turn the ignition all the way. It may be that the ignition is sticking and won't turn back when it should.\015\012\015\012I don't know, but the car runs just fine once it's started.\015
Your fuel pump is getting weak. when you turn your key to the on pos. you should hear a hum from the back of the car. GM's are good for having the fuel pump go out. and you can test it or take it to a shop and have it tested.
