Question about 1994 Pontiac Bonneville
I have a 1994 Bonneville and the "check engine" light comes on intermittently, it recently started dying while I'm driving for no apparent reason? I have to put it into park and restart it. I have NO car knowledge but it was suggested to me that it could have to do with the fuel filter/line. It happened once while I was on the freeway going 85 MPH and it just restarted by itself while I was coasting. I don't know where to start and I don't want to get ripped off by someone - I'm still making payments on the car (bad divorce - don't ask) and am trying to figure out if it's worth putting any money into it - it has 230,000 miles on it.....I'd like to make it last one more year if at all possible. Please help.....
I have a 1994 Bonneville and it to had trouble with it quiting while driving at low speed or slowing down and after doing a ton or resurch it turned out to be the EGR valve and it is a very common thing for the 3800 3.8. motor.it is expensive to replace and all the salvage yards that I went to did not have any on the motor so I had to buy one new $105 but in the end it was worth it. Until I could come up with the money I just took it off and sprayed carb cleaner in it and it would last a few weeks until it started to act up again. hope this helps every one.

Had same problem...thought it was water in gas...replaced crankshaft sensor...part cost $60.00-labor $80.00..failing crank sensors seem to be more common problem..did not fix problem...replaced Engine Control Module (ECM) part cost $187.00-labor $40.00...replaced ECM solved it...car runs fine.
