Sorry to say this, but sounds like the engine might be done, starting to seize up, have someone do an oil sample to see if any metal in the oil

I was having problems with my 97 bonneville stalling and not starting. Ended up being the security device that reads the chip in the key. It was faulty and would shut of power and fuel supply. Took it to a place that installs remote starters and had them put a resistor on that bypasses the security system. Works great now.

I have a 1997 Pontiac Bonneville that is shutting off while I am driving. It eventually starts but it happens over and over. I changed the fuel relay switch but it still happens. what next?


How long since a tune-up? Are there any applicable trouble codes? Some of the national brand auto stores will check codes free. Does it stall at idle or going down the highway?
With extended crank, have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure and check fuel injector pulse.

If injector pulse is missing when problem is ongoing, two things I think of, do you have an rpm signal and security system where applicable. The rpm signal comes from crank sensor. Intermittent problems can be a pain to track. Don't replace anything unless your testing points in that direction.

Oil pressure problem


210K Miles?
Knock for 40K Miles?
Suggest its time to replace the motor.

I would not have flushed the oil with that many miles; but you might have them change the oil and filter with a heavy weight oil if you had 5-30 try 20-30, if you had 10-30 try 20-50.
Stall after the oil change can be a co-incidence but check something was not knocked loose.

1992 ssei, stalls when it warms up and starts back up again a minute or two later. Also have a esc, knock sensor code where is the knock sensor?


Knock sensor will not cause stall, but ign module problem will. Possible you have a bad ign module, but that will be a very expensive guess. Knock sensor is next to the oil filter.

Flashing oil light/ loss of power


Check your converter on your exhaust when it's running and see if the noise of rattling is coming from there.If it is you have a plugged converter,it's broken up and in piece's which will make noise and no power especially when calling for power.Be sure to let exhaust cool before repair is done.If the engine is making the noise like a knocking sound you should bring it to have it checked.Hope this help's.
