Got a 96 pontiac grand am and it wont crank past the first

Customer Question

got a 96 pontiac grand am and it wont crank past the first compression stroke. it started running rough the other day so went to store to get plugs and anilyzed per codes, (engine light was on). Tried to start it and wouldnt start. compression test showed 160-130-175-175.took all plugs out it cranks fine, put any one plug back in and it wont crank. Though it might be a weak starter, replaced it, same thing. Any ideas?

  • If more assistance is needed, reply and let me know, also let me know what it is you're needing to be pleased.
  • This post is coming up on the 7 day mark where it times out. When a post times out, that means it's no longer on my active list (you reply and I never know it.)
  • You have already paid the fees to get this question answered, and I do not want you to leave having paid for something that did not meet your wants/needs and myself not receiving a feedback selection from yourself.

Thanks Chris
