SOURCE: 1995 pontiac bonneville stalls

I just went through lots of troubleshooting and expense on my 1996. Whenever I would lift my foot off the accelerator and was below about 30 mph, the rpm's would starts jumping around and sometimes it would stall. If I gave it a little gas (accelerator), I could sometimes keep it running. It also backfired once in a while. Starts right back up. Also, if I let it idle while in part, it would die after 1-2 minutes.

I ended up finding a hole in the fuel regulator. About a ~$70 part if you get an AC Delco, but very simple to change.

SOURCE: 2000 pontiac montana doesn't start and security

Very common problem on these cars. Do you have another key you can use? Try it. If not take the key ou have been using and turn ket to the on posistion. Leave it there on for ten to fifteen minutes. The computer will relearn the chip code on key. When light stops blinking you know it is done. Turn key to off wait ten to fifteen seconds and turn key to on position, Security light may blink once or twice then it should stop.. Try to start vehicle. It should start. If it doesn't then you may need whats called a new passlock and possibly key reprogramming. Which can only be done at the dealer most of the time. Hope car starts with the first procedure. Let me know if it works.

You could have something as simple as a loose vacuum line or you could have a problem with the ( IAC ) Idle Air Control Module. You can CAREFULLY spray carb cleaner along the lengths of vacuum tubing in short ( 1 second ) bursts - if the idle races, then look where you just sprayed for a loose , fallen off or cracked vacuum lines. If that doesn't work then you'll need to have the IAC checked to see if it's working properly - your local shop should be able to quickly check that for proper operation. If the IAC is bad, they are relatively easy to change - with the biggest expense being the part. It is also possible to clean out the IAC which may restore operation by removing the IAC from the intake system and blasting it out real good with carb cleaner, then re - installing the IAC and testing it by starting the vehicle. Hope this helps!

I have 2001 bonneville. I was driving and stopped at a light and my service engine soon light starts flashing. My car acts like it doesn't want to pick up speed and it is shaking a little. Do you have any...


usually when the check engine light is flashing it indicates that you need to tune it up. I would replace the plugs and wires. Do it one at a time so you don't forget firing order. Leave comment

Most likely it is the ignition switch (the key ignition switch) in the steering column ($100 at a dealer).

It may be a loose negative battery ground cable, too.
Check the negative battery cable where it conencts to the engine ground. It may be loose, corroded, damaged, or otherwise not making a good ground contact.

Add a grounding strap ($11 - AutoZone) from the engine to the chassis. That may help, but it's most likely the ignition switch.

Car dies while driving


First off, check your battery terminals and posts for corrosion or any other cause of a poor connection.  If your connection to the battery is cutting out/back on rapidly it would cause exactly those symptoms.  also inspect the battery cables end to end for poor connections corrosion or breaks/tears in the insulating coating.  if that yields no answers it is probably a sensor for the ecu or the fuel delivery system.  good luck!
