Pontiac grand prix 3800 no start or random shutoff

Asked by Feb 27, 2017 at 02:02 PM about the 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix GT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have an issue. I've seen this asked on here
several times too so it must be common.
However.... I have replaced the fuel filter,pcv valve ,
plugs , wires, and crank sensor but the problem
still exists. Someone told me I may not be getting
fire that I may have bad coils or icm problems but
it runs fine when it starts. Ive exhausted all options
other then fuel pump...I think. Can someone shed
some light on this dull ass parade of mine??
