The engine in my grand am will not run. I tried looking at Grand am forums, but they are freaking stupid as hell talking about spark plug wires, cold air kits and body kits. No real good faq section at all. Engine is a 3.4L V6 3400 SFI. Here is the deal.... g/f was driving by herself and she said the cars oil light came on, then the battery light, then the car got hard to steer. The alternator was just replaced less then a year ago. I can get the car to start with a jump but it sounds like its only running on 3 or so cylinders, and the oil pressure light is on(its not a gauge so I really do not trust it). Here is the confusing part. When I did start it, I checked to see if oil was getting to the head so I peaked in the oil fill on the valve cover and the two valves that I did see were not moving. Other then the normal small lifter tic I had, and the engine running rough as hell I couldn't hear any knocking or grinding. The oil is a little dark but no metal in it at all. Its Sequential Fuel Injection so I assume its a single cam pushrod, but I could'nt find any info on it. I am going to do a compression test on all cylinders as soon as I found my tester, and I'm going to pull the valve covers to check as well. If anyone has any ideas please let me know. Also the engine will not run more then 30-40 seconds. Sorry for asking but If I asked this at the Grand Am board they would probably say something like "whats a lifter?"
