Check serpentine belt. It may be broken.
If all belts are in good shape and tensioned properly have the car looked at by a mechanic for troubleshooting.

I put a 03 3.8 out of a grand prix into a 98 bonneville, i now have a bad oil leak behind the power steering pump at the front motormount where a stud and nut fasten the mount, oil just pours out

do you still have the engine you took out (hope so)
check very closely and see if there is any differance
the bonnevile's have a way different engine mount then the GP
you have put that stud into an oil gallery
check the old engine and see if that hole is blind
good luck!
hope this helps

98 bonnevile security shut down car completly no power @ all

If you have the passkey system you might want to take the key to the dealer to have it tested, and if that is ok then there is a way to bypass the security system which I had to do in my Bonneville.
