I have a 97 Bonneville that would die with no rhyme or reason several years ago. Took it to Pontiac dealer, and they were just about to call me and tell me to come pick up the car, with that old stand-by "can't replicate the problem". When they went to move it out of the repair bay, it died on them. Finally pinpointed what they termed a "flexible fuse" that is, in effect, floppy. When the fuse would shift just the right way, it would cut power to the engine. They replaced the fuse and all has been well on that front ever since. Probably happened about 6 or 7 years ago.

97 jeep wrangler 4 cyl shuts down while driving already replaced fuel filter and crank sensor


Similar problem due to wiring on ASD (automatic shutdown relay) not connected tight to terminals on underside (fuse box under hood). I encountered this problem repeatedly after a mechanic (national chain) kept removing this wire for some reason (eventually causing computer to fry). Also related problem misfiring/backfiring/bogging down under certain driving conditions I traced to the battery sliding into computer wiring harness and disrupting sensor input/output signals. Placed 1" spacer on rear clamp to push battery forward, which cured this problem.

1997 dodge ram v6 manual jerking while driving


This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

1984 pontiac bonnerville plug firing order photo


Hi,
I don't know your engine size, but the link below is a picture of the GM small block firing order with distributor.
The firing order, which should be cast into the intake manifold, for the chevy small block V8 is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. The firing order is the numerical sequence in which the spark plugs are fired. The insertion position of each spark plug wire around the circumference of the distributor cap can be found according to a clock face. The insertion sequence determines the firing order. The firing order is followed clockwise around the distributor cap starting from the 6:30 position with the 6:30 position being the number one cylinder spark plug wire.

Knocking


the knocking is probably the connecting rod that is between the piston and the crankshaft....the pop you heard was it breaking. this is major engine repair and needs to be looked at by profesionals.
