Question about 1997 Pontiac Bonneville

1 Answer

Engine stalling After driving for a while, the car stalls when slowing down--the other night it stalled as i was driving, not braking- the brakes lock up and so does the steering. We purchased a new battery and new cables to a tune of $166.00, didn't work, than we had the oil censor switched at a tune of $90.00, didn't work, than they replaced the ignition module and that hasn't worked, haven't gotten the bill for that one yet. Please help.

Sounds like a faulty crank position sensor. its located behind the crank pully. they are known for failing. you will want the front crank seal done at this time also.

Check fuel pressure. Parts stores rent a fuel pressure gauge. If fuel pressure is low, check fuel pump and filter.

If you have the foot on the brake when stopping and it stalls , try slowing down and stopping on the hand brake to see if the engine stalls . If it doesn't stall on the hand brake then I would suspect a leak in the brake booster that is affecting the engine by letting air into the manifold through the activated booster. If there is no difference have the fault codes read as there may be a missing/ faulty vacuum line connected to a actuator in the gear box.

Abs light is on and brakes keep getting tighter


bad brakes. (do explain tighter?) (to a blind, no leg man)
first fix bad brakes, then worry ABS. last
explain tighter.
in driving school , they teach , how to drive (safely) with a stalled engine
as the engine stalls. and vacuum hits zero, the booster slowly
dies and bingo , old fashion , manual brakes. (stalls are like that)
is that what is happening. engine stalls?, or the booster is failing?
what happens there is brakes are 100 ok, but just harder to press
the pedal so you press harder and brakes are ALL THERE.
the is all by DESIGN.. no accident (no pun)
see if you have any other bad brakes symptoms.
like these.

if brakes are 100% ok then , run the ABS scan or diagnostic
stated in the FSM , see what code you are getting.
then post that. ABS can not function correctly with bad brakes.

I was driving down the road and lost power..no gas..no brakes...no steering.


did it restart?
the engine stalled, as such you
get
no engine power
no P/S reverts to manual steering, you did not loose steering.
same with P/B power brakes, you didnt lose it you lost power
assist, brakes will stop just as vast but takes a husky foot.
in school (driving) we were though to drive, stalled engine.
i guess most school went dumb. (seen it)
now stalls
engine stall for a vast number or reasons.

do that tuneup not called the 60k mile service point list. did you.?
cars ignored all fail, no car runs 300k miles service free,
skip them and get stranded, (i promise)

1: lost electric power to the EFI system.
2: engine overheated or lost compression for any reasons (complex)
3: lost spark
4: lost fuel
5: too much fuel, flooding, and stalling.
6: egr sticks open.
7: ISC sticks closed.
8:if not restart, say so and list expands way more...

cars are complex, it's not like a burned out desk lamp.
vast complexity and after 2007 , insane complexity.
avoid them 2007 and newer, sans NASA engineer.

try disconnecting the hose to the brake booster and plugging it, the take it for a drive, ( you won't have power brakes so do this in a empty area)

1999 nissan pathfinder jerks and stall when slowing down or at red light


YOU might find its due to the Auto Matic gear box as when you slow down at the lights or brake hard to stop the auto box should brake free at about 600rpm as to allow the car to stop but the engine to keep idling,but the drive bands in the gearbox and the pump which operate them are not braking free so its like, in a Manual g/box driving and stopping but leaving the clutch pedal and not pushing it in so the car stalls,
SO you may find that the next time you are driving it and come to the lights just try putting it in NEUTRAL gear before you stop and try, if it ok then get the g/box serviced . RON

Stalls out when braking quickly, worse with going down hill


Assuming that the vehicle is equipped with an automatic transmission, it looks like the torque converter lock-up system doesn't release as fast as it should, so if you brake hard, the converter is still locked up and your wheel brakes stall your engine (just like pressing ******* the brakes with the clutch pedal released on a manual transmission vehicle). Normally, when you brake hard, the lock-up should release and prevent the stall from happening. Might be a bad torque converter, or a bad lock up solenoid in the transmission... Before jumping to anything else, i'd try checking the fluid level in the transmission and an oil/filter change in the transmission. Lots of times one or the other can cure the problem.
