Try cleaning your throttle body with Seafoam throttle body cleaner and then run it. Let me know how it turns out. No check engine light correct?

Once again my mother's 1990 Pontiac Bonneville is giving me problems. It now just quits driving down the road. It has a new fuel pump, and a new battery. It has been in the shop and I don't think they know...


You have a list of things to look for. If the battery is new, it should turn over the engine, if it is dead, why did it die? Is the alternator charging? Is the battery any good? Did you check the electrolytes? Just because it is new doesn't mean it is good. Then check the terminals, are they clean? A car will not on a dead battery, it will not with battery power only for very long. When you get done with the electrical stuff, move on to the fuel stuff. Is it fuel injected or throttle body? Either way, I would try some fuel additive to clean it up in there. If you get it running. Some of your sensors could be bad. Sometimes the carbon builds up in there and throws the car into a fit, it won't run good at all. Are the dash board lights going crazy? A sign of the alternator going bad.

This sounds like a weak battery. The lights, horn, etc., are all very small loads. The starter is the hardest item for your battery to push. You can take the battery to an auto parts store and they can perform a "load check". If it shows weak, then let them put the battery in for you. The reason it is harder to start in the morning is, it is the longest time since the battery has been charged, and it is usually cooler in the morning. Batteries hate the cold.

Engine keeps dying after I turn it on.


I had the same problem when I did battery maintenance on my 1988 Montero Sport. The problem was explained to me, that the car's electronic pollution control computer data was erased when the battery is disconnected or the battery totally discharges. The car's computer uses this data to regulate idle speed and other engine factors. The solution given to me was to recheck the battery connections (make sure they are clean, and tighten down), start the vehicle, and just let it sit and idle for about 15 - 20 minutes (without racing the engine or driving the vehicle). This will rebuild and repopulate the car's computer engine data it needs to make adjustments. Hope this helps.
Mark.
