SOURCE: 1997 Bonneville stalls and dies on the road

Shell has had issues with contaminated fuel in the past cant recall what it was but it actually damaged the fuel pump. I hope thats not the issue here can get costly in some cases fuel pumps on GM are a whole assembly. DOes the gas gauge still read properly? This was a big tell with the contamination last time. Gauge would read empty even when full.

SOURCE: engine died & wont start no spark ignition coil tested good

try your ignition module in the distributor much more likely. just install rebuilt distributor if that is the problem , if you just replace module the main distributor assem will **** out shortly after.
Make sure you check for broken timing belt also it is one of those two!

SOURCE: BATTERY DIES OUT IN 2-3 DAYS.

are you saying that you got this battery from autozone? I went thru three batteries in a week from autozone because the lot# was bad. It,'s quite possible that you have either a short that is draining the battery or that the alternator isnt charging properly. To do a fast check, start the car then remove the positive battery cable with the car running. If it stays running, theres a chance its ok. If it dies, It's most likely the alternator or the voltage regulator Diods. On most cars, the voltage regulator is built into the alternator. I would take it to autozone and have the charging system checked

If you dont have much money, guessing what parts to change gets expensive. First, you need to verify if it has fuel pressure and spark, that will lead you in the direction to start looking for the problem. Pull 1 spark plug wire off and see if it will jump a 1/2" gap, If so, thats good. If no spark, make sure the cam is turning, you may have a broken timing belt.

When i start up my car it starts and will stay running but will eventually die out, and if u step on the gas it dies right away


I would suggest Fuel issue...the car isn't getting the proper amount of fuel...you can try a cheap fix first and try and change the fuel filter...or it may be a fuel pump...those can be expensive..good luck

1995 pontiac bonneville was running fine until I parked it. Came back several minutes later and now it wont fire off when I turn it over. After spraying starting fluid in it, it works fine for about 5...


Can you hear the fuel pump hum when you turn the key to on? If it will start on starting fluid, you definitely have a fuel problem. The pump being stuck or bad, or the filter being plugged, or vapor lock (try loosening the fuel cap, does it pull in air?)

1993 Pontiac Bonneville will idle only


Wait, first check the fuel pump, fuel filter and the ignition coils. If your fuel pump goes bad, it will start to heat up a lot and **** the voltage from your alternator, indirectly lower your battery voltage and can also be linked to coil failure. It will act up more when there is less than 1/4 gas in the tank. you can check the coils by getting a new or used coil and using the process of elimination (very rarely do all 3 go bad, if your car finally turns on and shakes so much that it feels as if will turn off but never does and your voltage goes way down then its at least 1 of your coils). The fuel filter should be changed if it hasn't been changed in the last year ( I recommend it for these cars as bad gas causes much damage) and check to see if fuel is getting to your engine. These cars also have fuel leaks around the front of the car especially where the 2 metal fuel lines meet under the front passenger side (the rubber connector wears out). If you're fuel pump is bad I then recommend changing your fuel pump relay as voltage and pressure will adjust. I hope this helps. Good luck
