A malfunctioning coil pack can cause your 2001 Pontiac Grand Am to backfire. The more likely cause is a faulty fuel injector.
Any number of things, from a marginal or wire to low compression in one cylinder, a vacuum leak or in some cases an injector problem. I don't know if your Grand Am has multi-port injection or throttle body injection, so I can't answer that one for you.
Its going bad.
you might wanna chage the plugs and wires. what other symptoms does the car have. i am having the same problem in my 2003 pontiac grand prix gt
The ABS light on a 2004 Pontiac Grand Am can be reset by connecting an OBDII code reader to the vehicle's computer. It can reset all codes and determine their cause.
A whistling noise indicates a vacuum leak.
Would this cause the car not to start If the EGR VALVE is bad
play in the drive train
a crack or a hole in the tank. or hose for that matter
water temp sensor wire grounding out could cause this problem.
It might cause the "check engine" light to come on.
