Question about 1983 Pontiac Bonneville
First off, don't bother with the liquids draining. The only liquid that makes any difference is the fuel. Your car will still run with no oil, antifreeze, etc. What you need to do is to troubleshoot this. This car has a carburetor, so it is easy. Take the air cleaner off, and look in the top of the carburetor while pulling on the throttle linkage. You should see a squirt of gas inside the carburetor. If you don't, then you aren't getting gas, and you need to check your fuel filter, fuel pump, and fuel lines, in that order. If you do, then you aren't getting spark. If this is the case, you will have to first test to see if the distributer has power to it when the ignition switch is turned on. If not, run power from the battery to the distributer and try it. If it doesn't run then, you have to dig into the distributer. Take the cap off. Do you see anything that looks burnt, broken wires, rotor broken, anything like that? If so, replace it. There may be a rusty colored deposit on everything; that's ok. If you still haven't found the problem, it is likely either the coil, which is in the distributer cap, or it is the regulator inside the distributer. Either can be replaced easily and cheaply. Hope this helped get your pontiac on the road.

Inspect the sun roof of your Pontiac Bonneville to make sure it's seated evenly on your vehicle, not raising or lifting at one corner. Lifting indicates the presence of debris on the tracks, or a damaged seal around the sun roof.
Remove the trim on the interior of your Pontiac Bonneville and allow the interior material to drop. Use compressed air to blow dust and debris from the tracks that move your sun roof. Treat the tracks using 3-In-One Lubricant.
Check the Pontiac Bonneville's drain tubes for clogging. Two of these run down the front of your vehicle to the bumpers. Two run to the back, most often by your tail lights. Clear the tubes using compressed air and replace them.
Clean the sun roof's rubber seal with a damp, lint-free cloth. Inspect the seal as you clean
