Question about 1997 Pontiac Bonneville
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.

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
