Question about 1990 Pontiac Bonneville
Engine 3.8 V6 .Under -5 degrees Celsius it will not start. Then after a lot of tryings it starts like if nothing has happened. Then it starts all day but next morning same story.No difference if I use the electric engegine heater or not. I also have a 1988 model and that starts almost before you turn the key! Never ever failed. Not even in minus 30 degr. Celsius.
This has been done.
Computer changed-no diference, the 3 coil spark-ignation modul changed-no diff.
Fuelpump new-pressure OK
The pressure box/regulator changed & OK Canister OK. All rubber vacum hose OK no leaks.
The IAC Ok and adjusted and the EGR valve changed and works correct. New sparkplugs and new sparkwires
tempsensors new- gives right values
Throttle pos is changed and gives right Volt
MAF changed and cleaned and gives right value. Both crank and camshaft sensors changed and gives right values and the cable-connectors Ok and dry.
The oxygen sensor Ok an has a separate ground wire.
There are no intermittent faults. I also checked for broken wire from the temp sensors to the EMC-OK.
The indicator magnet fitting on the camshaft wheel is changed togehter with a new sensor on the cover.
The computer memory indicates no fault. The memory OK, (tested by simulating a fault and then it will register it)
There is absolute nothing more to exchange or adjust.
So WHY this behavior?
And yet I´m an experienced mechanical and cant fix my own car this time, well nobody else could fix eather.
Please try to figure out whats wrong before I got mad, I´m already creasy and has given up.Problem is we use car every morning to get to our jobs.
thank You in advance
