Hello. It seems either your water temperature sender is malfunctioning or your ignition module is overheating.

SOURCE: 95 Bonneville won't start when hot

Yes I know, but If you hold the accelerator pedal to the floor on a fuel injected car, the Throttle position sensor will tell the computer to enter clear flood mode. Then the computer will shut off the fuel injectors while you have the pedal to the floor. If it is flooded, you should be able to get it started in clear flood.

SOURCE: 1994 pontiac bonneville.car starts but stops after

This car uses a key with a transponder chip in it. The ignition reads the value of the chip thru 2 small contacts just inside the entrance of the keyhole. These contacts are known to get dirty, wear out, or become totally disconnected from the wire they are hooked to. Use electrical cleaner in the lock cylider and run the key in and out a few times to clean the lock. This is your temporary fix. The next item you may want to try ,is having another chip key made. If this doesn't work, then you will need to replace the ignition cylinder. You can try "Plastichead Keys" for these parts. They can be reached at plasticheadkeys@aol.com.

SOURCE: I have 1992 Pontiac Bonneville SE with 3800 engine

run engine until problem occurs. turn engine off or let it die. leave key on but don't start engine. put a paper clip in diagnostic plug under steering column. look at area on dash where service engine soon flashes. count flashes. (ex. 1flash-1,1 flashes=1,2. if you see 1flash of service engine soon, then 5 flashes in a row the diagnostic check = 1,5. It will flash this several times in a row. this is your code. look it up or ask and find out what it is. this is usually your problem area. let the car tell you.

You may need to check fuel pressure after the engine warms up and shuts off. Maybe the fuel pump gets hot and stops. Have you checked for spark after it dies?

Sounds like your not getting enough fuel from a bad fuel pump. As the pump heats up it stops sending the proper PSI of fuel from the pump to your engine. As it cools down it gets better but quickly returns once the pump heats back up. The only real solution is replacing the pump and fuel filter.
Make sure in the future to keep at least a half a tank of gas in it as the gas cools the pump.


Hope this helps..

1997 Bonneville lost power going up a long hill


The only thing that comes to mind is the catalytic convertor in the exhaust system.It can become restricted,reducing flow in the exhaust system,which also reduces engine power.These convertors run at fairly hot temperatures,and the extreme heat and conditions aggravated,or overloaded it.It's not very expensive to have it checked at a reputable muffler shop.I have seen extreme instances where this caused parts of the exhaust system to turn red,glowing hot.
