Question about 1995 Pontiac Bonneville
Car starts and warms up and all of a sudden it turns off. But I'm able to turn it back on and drive it. Again , and if I drive off ,and stop a little fast it'll turn off. The temperature gauge is fine low reading. The oil pressure gauge on the hand is on maximum high. The check gauges light and check oil comes on and off. The check engine light is on as well.
This may not be your fix, but a place to start is having a technician check your EGR operation. (Exhaust Gas Recirculation Valve). The EGR helps the car reduce emissions by letting exhaust flow back into the intake to burn up unburned gas vapor while warming up your car. (When your engine is cold, it will not always burn up all of the gas that goes into the cylinders, so that gas just goes into the atmostsphere). When the engine warms up, it is unneccessary for the EGR to still be open. If it remains open, it can make your engine die, beacuse there is more exhast than air and fuel being burned. The reson this would happen would be if the EGR Valve stuck open (frequent issue).
