Check plugs and plug wires---worked for mine.
Partially clogged fuel filter or weak fuel pump. Replace the fuel filter.
If it starts at all I'd say it isn't the key, check the MAF sensor.
I have one of these change fuel filter
Sounds like your theft deterent system is engaged; for that you will need to go to the dealer (tow car to dealer). My 1996 had the same problem. They will have to replace the module in the dash or re-work it.
Could be as simple as a clogged fuel filter.
Had same problem on my 03. Replaced the fuel and air filter and had plugs replaced. Ran like new after. Dont know which its was but a place to start.
carb. adjustment, oil my need to be changer, air filter is dirty. fuel filter needs to be replaced
Sounds like it's not getting enough fuel or a filter is clogged. Try having your fuel ejection flushed and fuel filter changed!
It could be as simple as a very dirty fuel filter.
It could be the computer which controls your engine. That happened to my 97 Grand Am, and it ended up shutting down in the middle of the road.
Your 1991 4.3 S10 starts for about 3 seconds then shuts down because it is faulty. Take it to mechanic to have it checked.
Crank Position Sensor needs to be replaced. I had the same problem and that was the cure. It was hard to diagnose because of the intermittent nature of the problem.
If a 2000 Pontiac Grand Am shuts off while in drive, there could be a problem with the passlock sensor. There could also be an issue with the fuel pump.
on my 2001 grand am gt the governor shuts me down at about 121 mph
Check the fuel pump, rotor, and distributor cap.
Carb.? May need to be re-built or replaced
Only if you shut it off. :)
crank sensor located on the front of the motor left of the starter and above the oil filter
possibly the fuel filter
check the air filter sensors, make sure its sealed. itll sound like its stalling out after a few seconds to a few minutes
Could be a clogged or partially clogged fuel filter, and/or the fuel pump itself. The asker doesn't say whether the car will restart immediately after is stalls or not.
It is a common problem for shevy. Usually the Fuel regulator. Or for other vehicles it could be a dirty fuel filter
1991 mitsubishi eclipse 2.0L starts 2 to 3 seconds later shuts off
You need to have your check valve replaced.
