Question about 1994 Pontiac Bonneville

Open Question

Engine sputters or dies when i try to use power windows

Occasionally while im driving, i will try to put down the back power windows (one doesn't work) and the engine will sputter or die. After it dies, it wont start for an hour or 2 but i have got it to start by giving it gas also i couldnt get the windows to go up if it does die.

i also have replaced the fuel pump and that wasnt the problem

SOURCE: 93 honda civic ex sputtered and died while driving

Is there any white smoke coming out the exhaust? Sounds like the same problem my friend had when he warped his head on his 91 civic. Any overheating at all? Otherwise another guess would be maybe a bad catalitic converter that clogged up. Hope this helps any, good luck

Probably need the computer reset. All these cars now days are set up for the dealer to screw you. The fix yourself is about history

CHECK THE FUEL FILTER FIRST.IF THE FILTER IS PLUGGED U CAN HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM.IF THAT DOES NOT FIX IT U NEED TO CHECK THE FUEL PRESSURE.THERE IS A FUEL PRESSURE TEST PORT ON THE FUEL INJECTION RAIL(TOP OF THE ENGINE)THE PRESSURE SHOULD BE 40-47PSI.KEY ON ENGINE OFF.

have a load test done on the battery to check for failing cell. Check the drive belt condition and tension. check alternator out put. Everything you have mentioned indicates a lack of battery power. Check terminal condition and tension of the clamp bolts.

Engine sputters and sometimes dies.


As for the engine, try replacing the fuel pressure regulator. If it accelerates good but when you decelerate it dies, it's the FPR.

95 Eagle Talon stalls out after driving for a while. Has new ignition coil, plugs and wires, computer and fuel pump but I've been told it has something to do with the fuel line, any help?


I have the same year and stalls out occasionally in the beginning and now I can barely drive a quarter mile. All of the parts you listed I've tested and appear ok but what I'm thinking is not fuel because it would act crazy gasping for fuel but the camshaft and crankshaft sensors. If either of these are failing then the engine stops firing and dies. Also could be the alternator or battery. If not enough charge then the car could die. Mine dies like I turned the key off (and don't think it's ignition switch) and gauges all just drop to zero still sounds like engine is sort of on until I finally coast close to stopping and then dies and oil light comes on.

I would try spark plugs and wires. If it was a fuel line you would see the leak or atleast smell it very strongly. If the problem still exists after new plugs and wires try the distributor cap.
