Hey guys, Whats going on? yet again im encountering a prbolem with my 2002 Grand am 3.4L. My Service engine light has been on for a couple of weeks now i thought it would just graduaLLy fix it self and turn off but now i think something is wrong. When i go to start my car it like gargles, chugs or hesitate whatever you wanna call it. and it seems like it wants to die, the other day my cars battery died and i thought the alternator might be at its death point but my volts were reading 13.8 so i think thats beside the point. can you guys give me sum suggestions as what this might be. Thank you. and can the car be scanned for and Ses code?

Take it to Auto Zone and get a free scan.
