      I would like to share a scenario that turned out to be a good reminder/lesson of checking the simple stuff first when troubleshooting an issue with your car.

      Along with the Jeep Liberty that my wife drives. My DD is a 2005 Pontiac Grand Prix 3.8L Non-SC with 168,000 miles on it. About 4 weeks ago, the Grand Prix came up with a CEL light. This was at the same time I was also dealing with the “Jeep Liberty – No Crank” condition. I was pre-occupied with getting the Jeep up and running. I ignored the CEL on my Pontiac.

      The symptoms of the Pontiac were hesitation, pinging/detonation, hard time starting and occasionally stalling. I get the car scanned and the stored codes are P0102 and P0443. Which points back to a failed MAF sensor and a leaky EVAP component.

              No problem. I was relieved when I found out it was only the fuse. I was already stressing out having thoughts of another car repair.

              To the credit of the Grand Prix. I’ve owned it for 7 years and it has 168,000 miles on it (I have an 80 mile daily commute). Other than putting normal maintenance into it (Brakes, Battery, Tires, Belts, Hoses) I’ve had zero issues with it. I can honestly say, it’s the best car I’ve ever owned.

                Excellent post! Now image there are thousands of people coming to you with their automotive problems every day and the first thing they say is “I’ve replaced this, this, that other thing, and the parts guy told me to replace this and it still doesn’t work” and you now live in my world.
