Pontiac didn't make the Sunfire until '95. So, either you have the year of your car wrong, or it might be a Sunbird. If you can clarify this for us, we can help you.

you have either no gas or no spark maybe both

It is either getting no fuel or no spark.

i believe your relay might be acting up. i would replace it r u sure u aren't stuck on delay!!?? been there, done that!! This happened on our 94 Sunbird LE...it is indeed the relay.

It lost fuel and/or spark and/or compression. Many possibilities of the source.

Fuel pump, blown fuel pump fuse, fuel filter clogged, fuel pressure regulator, or defective ECU.

It could be the window regulator. If it is worn out and binding, it could cause the window to move slowly, jerkily, or not at all.

Wrong gap, wrong plug, poor groound when you are looking at the spark,

---- I am having trouble steering to the right on right turns, It is really hard to turn to the right. Do you have any idea as to what this could be?

User Avatar

* No gas * Clogged fuel filter * Malfunctioning fuel pump * Spark plug wire * Voltage regulator problems (not allowing enough voltage for spark)

Replace the whole arm on the steering column. Its a switch as well! He's right, these cars are known for steering column issues related to signals and horn.

Um... Only internal combustion engines have spark plugs. But I could be wrong so check next to your halogen fluid reservoir. If that does not help I would recommend replacing your muffler bearings

If it turns over but seems to buck & choke you may have the wires on in the wrong order. Did you do them one at a time? Does it try to start?

User Avatar

There's a turn signal or running light out on that side, either front or rear. Turn on signal, get out and look. If both turn signals are working, chances are its the running light.

User Avatar

You might have switched the plug wires. Meaning that you put a plug wire in the wrong spark plug which messes with the firing order.

User Avatar

It might be that you are not getting spark to your spark plug. Check your coil and the connection to yourcoil. If coil is giving spark check the spark plugs and the spark plug wire. The fumes that you smell is the gas that is being pumped into the engine but not being burned because there is no spark. that is my opinion, I may be wrong.

The standard procedure is to admit your initial hypothesis turns out to be wrong and then proceed to explain why it was wrong and what really happened. Science is all about learning from your mistakes.

More than likely the coil is bad. A spark occurs when the power to the coil turns OFF. Ignition points or the ICM breaks the voltage when it's time to fire a spark. Just having voltage to the coil isn't enough.

2 wrong turns make a right..... or in ur case, a lot f turns make a right..............

User Avatar

Be sure that the ground wire has a good clean connection. On the plug you need to check and be sure the wires are not trying to push out when you plug it together.
