Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

Im guessing this is a grand am?

ok so I would start with a throttle body clean and MAF sensor clean, there are special sprays for this you can get any any auto parts store. Make sure to clean throttle body until there is no residue left, I like to use a tooth brush it seems to work the best. After that pull negative battery cable then positive touch both cable ends together for 1 min and then wait 15 more install positive then negative and start car and see how it does
