How to Check the Fuel Lines and Fuel Pump on a Pontiac Grand Am

38

Two things make an internal combustion engine function: fuel and fire. If the engine in a Grand Am isn’t working the way it should, then it’s because there’s a restriction on one or the other. If it’s fuel, then the two most common problems are a clogged fuel filter and a malfunctioning fuel pump. Check the filter for clogs, and then check the pump and fuel lines.

Tools Used: Tools, Floor jack, Jack stands, Replacement parts, Clean bucket, Adjustable wrench

Check the Fuel Lines and Fuel Pump

Raise the rear end of the Grand Am, and support its frame with jack stands. Locate the gas tank under the back of the car, centered below the backseat.
