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?
