View Full Version : starting problem

05-22-2009, 08:03 PM
I have a '99 Grand Am with the 3.4 about 65k
I recently did the LIM gasket change
car has been sitting for about a month
I go to start it, and it doesn't start
turns over good but will not stay on
if I give it gas, it studders like major misfire and dies
tried a couple times and gave up-don't want to kill engine
someone please help

can anyone help???
could it be the fuel injectors wired incorrectly???

I'm not really certain, but with the car sitting for a month, the battery could be weak.

It could be an issue with fuel injectors, or maybe bad gas, again since it's been sitting for a month.

does anyone know what order the fuel injectors need to be wired?
