The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.

The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM or ECM,ECU), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems. Also engine mechanical problems can and do cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms.

What Rear Shock absorbers do you recomend most for a 2002 bonneville SSEi?


Replace them with air shocks. I just bought mine on line for 67 dollars each compared to $100.00 + each anywhere else. Nothing else will fit. Change over kits are very expensive and require special tools to do the job let alone the time it will take to do the job.

Control arms for 2001 pontiac bonneville ssei


Try the Salvage yard, you can get then around $45.00 each if you pull the parts your self. Call around though, different Salvage Yards have different price and will always try to beat the price of another Salvage yard. They pull parts for you too if you don't fell like getting your hands dirty twice. Good luck.
