1998 Bonnevelle bogging out

I have 1998 Bonneville SE 3.8 not supercharged. When I run the car it runs smoothly and just fine until it runs for about 12-15 miles. Then the car boggs down, the tac drops and then the engine catches smooths out and it runs fine. It always happens at the 12-15 mile mark. It happens on the freeway as well as the surface streets at different speeds but always at 12-15 miles.
Any ideas?

I have a 1998 pontiac bonneville se , engine 3800 (no turbo) the car idels smooth,but when you mash down on it , the car starts mising and than levels out , it also miss if you kick it the passing gea

I seriously doubt it.
The O2 sensors measure the amount of unburned fuel in the exhaust and would not be affected by water if you got them wet.
The spark plug wires and coils would be affected.

My 1998 pontiac bonneville se skakes when the fans turn on, is it a belt or something???

Hi, does it just shudder a bit and then go away or does it always shudder when the fans are on. When the engine fan comes on it draws enough amps to put a load on the engine. It is common that you feel a slight shudder as they engage but it should smooth out.

2001 pontiac bonneville SSEi 3.8 l supercharged. The car runs smooth for 15-30 min then stalls out. And when you attempt to restart it starts and idles up and down. And dies after 30 sec. With no check...

I have a 2000 Bonneville - I had a problem with the car stalling out - then it did not want to start back up. (When it did it would idle up and down and then die) I changed out the mass air flow sensor - now I have not had a problem. Good luck with it.

No fuel pressure

I would check the local ground wire. If there is not one there, install one from the chassis to the negative wire going to the fuel pump. If this does not help look for wiring that has corroded and created a resistance, or is chaffed and causing a mild short circuit. Clean the fuse terminals as well. If it uses a relay, check the resistance of the ON current flow. Sometimes contacts can get oxidized and cause a voltage drop across the resistance. I hope this solves your problem.

I would try a new fuel filter and see if that helps, if not then its best to do a fuel pressure test.
