2002 Pontiac Grand Prix Q&A

2002 Pontiac Grand Prix Question: WHY WILL CAR NOT RUN UNLESS I SPRAY FUEL DIRECTLY INTO INTAKE- SPARK IS STRONG.

FUEL RAIL PRESSURE IS AT 45 PSI-HAVE CHANGED ICM,CRANK POS SENSOR, PRESSURE REG, MASS FLOW SENSOR. THE ONLY CODE STORED WAS FOR THE O2 SENSOR. NO OTHER CODE STORED. I SUSPECT THE PCM,BUT DON'T KNOW PROPER PROCEDURE TO CHANGE IT. PLEASE HELP AND THANKS! -

Check for injector pulse with a noid light! Post results. Need this info. first! If you dont have the GM MPFI noid light, parts store may rent/loan you one. Dont have the pressure specs here, but best i can remember that's enough. (45 psi) -

Most likely the ecm injector driver is defecfive. Need to check the circuits to be sure ,once you buy this preflashed computer, it's yours! You need a wiring schematic for testing! If there is a shorted circuit you may fry the new ecm also. If there is an open circuit you can repair that! Good luck with it. -

IF THE CIRCUITS CK OUT GOOD-I WILL REPLACE THE PCM THAT HAS BEEN PRE-FLASHED. MY QUESTION IS, DO I NEED TO HAVE IT REPROGRAMED BY A GM DEALER AFTER INSTALLATION? AND IF THE PCM IS THE PROBLEM, AND THE REPLACEMENT IS NEEDED, WILL IT RUN TO THE DEALER SHIP TO HAVE IT REPROGRAMED,OR WILL I HAVE TO TOW IT TO THE DEALERSHIP. I AM A RETIRED MECHANIC, BUT DO NOT HAVE VERY MUCH EXPERIENCE WITH PCM OR ECU'S. THANKS AGAIN -

Call parts store, some can be done pre purchase and all you have to do is install. You will need the vin and computer numbers. -
