If a 2001 Grand Am was fine but then would not start yet turns over and the fuel pump is running and filter was changed what could be wrong?
The needs for combustion are fuel, spark and compression. It sounds as though fuel is eliminated, I doubt compression. Pull a plug and hook the wire to it and crank it, does it spark?
Just had this problem with my 2001 Grand Am. Was just about to take it to a shop when I ran across an article that said that the RKE (remote keyless entry) system has a bug in it that for some reason prohibits the vehicle from starting. More often than not it happens out of the blue. To fix the problem you have to reset your computer. Put the key in the ignition and turn it to the on position and leave it there for 10 minutes, then turn the key off and try to start it. It should start, worked for mine.
Your 1994 grand prix 3.1liter motor looses fuel pressure after you driver for about a mile and the car wont start for about 10 min you changed the fuel filter and checked for fire when the car is run?
Check your Air Filter connection. Many times if you go to the shop to get your oil changed they will also check and see if you may be in need of a air filter. Sometimes they forget to tighten the hose connected to the Air Filter, which could cause the car not to run. It might start, but will not stay running!

Why does my engine stop running after I take my foot off the gas pedal on a 1994 Grand Am SE V6 3.1 liter engine?
well, if the fuel filter was not changed recently, or if the spark plugs haven't been changed(depending on mileage), or even if the air filter hasn't been changed according to maintenance schedule, these can be the easiest reasons. You can also get water in the gas tank that can give you problems. If the gas is old and smells sweet, that could be a problem as the combustion properities of that old gas is gone…

What is that noise There is a noise coming from the basement when the air is on There is a new filter but the noise seems to be coming from that spot It's not a terrible noise just loudness?
As the filter was replaced recently it could be just a loose filter housing that is causing the unit to "rattle" when it is running. Rest your hand on different places near to the filter on the casing of the air conditioning unit to see if you can locate the cause of the new noise. If the noise can easily be stopped just by pressing on the filter housing - or somewhere else on the…

If you have sediment or water in the bottom of the tank it is always in the bottom of the tank and it doesn't need to be empty to suck in the contaminates. The contaminates can be sucked up if the tank is full, empty or anywhere in between. Most vehicles now have an electric pump inside the fuel tank. If you run out of gas simply pour a few gallons into the tank then…
