2006 grand prix chugs and hesitates when climbing hills or passing another vehicle. Have to depress gas pedal all the way just to keep it going.
What seems to make the problem better or worse? when i dont have to give extra gas when passing or climbing drives fine.
How long have you had this problem? 1 week
It seems to only happen after filling with gas, the car will stall and be hard to start like the starter is stuck. Then after a little while of sitting there it will start but it will run sluggish for a little bit then runs fine.

I am looking for a fuse that I can plug into that when ignition is turn off there is no power to. I am trying to connect a dash cam that I don't have to unplug when the engine is turned off. Thank you for your time.

Headlight would not shut off. Battery died. Fuse box very hot. #12 fuse smoking. Replaced the fuse and the check engine light went off. Now, four days later the engine light back on. Is this part of the recall?
I drive a supercharged 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix gt. My engine is misfiring in cylinders 3 and 6. Car obviously has no power. I recently changed the air filter so I know it's not that. I was thinking about replacing the fuel injectors and the fuel filter. I've done injectors before but not the fuel filter. I don't see it anywhere on the fuel line, so i'm guessing it's in the tank. Could you give me some pointers. I would greatly appreciate it.

2006 Grand Prix GXP V8 5.3L Last winter and again this winter the gas pump clicks off non-stop while fueling my car. It doesn't matter if it's empty or half full. It takes forever to fill my tank in the winter. I have no problems with it in the summer. I have tried pulling the gas pump out a little, turning it side ways and upside down it doesn't matter.
We charged the battery and after putting it back, it won't start due to the message about the anti theft device. Help!
My car has around 170k miles on it and I came home from work one night and parked and when I got up the next morning I had a puddle of oil under the front of my car and I even had oil that ran all along the exhaust. After sitting it quit leaking. I change the filter and there wasn't a double gasket, added more oil and it ran fine for a while and then started leaking again. It doesn't leak when it's shut off. It only leaks after running. Any ideas? I can't really see where the oil is coming from but it's somewhere the front passenger side.
Transmission hangs in neutral, then jumps into gear, particularly when cold or when shifting quickly from reverse to forward. Fluid appears clean and levels ok. This has been a long term thing for a few years.
Engine runs relatively smoothly once at speed. I thought it was fuel flow (eg filter issue), but learned there is no regular filter to service. There should be no excessive sediment in gas tank that would cause that filter screen to block. I'm thinking fuel pump? There is also some hesitation starting..It will not start without applying the gas pedal. Without pedal it stalls out. Thanks
