The car:1995 Grand AM

Heres the story.

Symptom 1: After long drives, It won't start. It will roll over, get sparatic sparking, reminds me of mis-firing. Then will die. Then it wont even turn over for a the next 10. Then after the next 10 mins it will start and be fine until turned off agian.

Symptom 2: It will idle fine, you put it into drive it will idol straight forward fine, but when any time you turn the wheel. It bogs agian. Like the power steering pump is taking to much of the cars horse power and the car can't handles it so it kills itself.

We've tried all the stupid little stuff, Re-gapped the spark plugs, Replaced them, and had new spark boots.

Any of you out there even has close to a guess whats going on.

Thanks alot guys.

What size engine do it got? I am guessing that symptom 1 is a bad crank sensor. It all depends on the engine size. The IAC is supposed to increase engine speed when turning and A/C is turned on. It sounds like that isnt happeneing. Symptom 2, id guess maybe a bad IAC motor.
