This problem could be the TPS,(throttle position sensor). I had a ford truck with the same problem and it bucked a bit while driving. I replaced the sensor and it went away. Also try the easy route first and replace the fuel filter if you haven't allready.

91' bonneville ran out of gas and now it wont stay running unless my foot is on the gas


Check TPS -Throttle Position Sensor

May be worn out

Test it --not replace-- unless it has failed a test

Also the fuel pump maybe worn out as well

1999 PONTIAC BONNEVILLE SE wont start security lights come on windows wont work, had it happen once b4 thought was out of gas put gas in still same waited an hour started right up, never had prob again...


Had the same problem. Took it to local guy and he put it on the computer and found the wire running underneath the driver side floor mat had gone bad. Had to do with the security shut-off, which this wire affected. Replaced that wire, and the car has been running great ever since - happened 19 months ago.

Engine knocks at startup


It could be the oil pump, its not a bad idea to check the type of engine oil you are using maybe you can go a little higher in grade,
you can also try to use STP Engine oil treatment for petrol (gas) as addative to the engine oil it may help.
Hope this helps!
