hey, how/where do you find these codes? Is it something I can do without buying one of those expensive scanners?

A scanner or code reader is required. AutoZone will retrieve trouble codes no charge.

I have a 1987 pontiac bonneville.
My car is idleing rough. and it dies at stop lights. it feels like its not gettin gas. and when im driving it has no more acceleration. it used to be quick when i stepped on the gas. but now it hesitates. and i can hear the engine and the rpm but it doesnt even feel like its going anywhere. could it be a second fuel filter?

Jan 23, 2006 (2:56 pm)
This morning I started my car, no problems. However, noticed that when I came to a stop or had to sit and idle in traffic my car started to shimmy. It shimmies from side to side, and the service engine light came on. Thinking maybe some built up carbon could be the issue, got some cleaner for the fuel system. That has yet to show an improvement. It hasn't stalled, and doesn't really act like it's going to. Just running rough. Acceleration is poor. Definately no significant change in the rpms. Recently changed spark plugs and cables. New battery too. Any advice would be great.

If you check my earlier message 1747, you may find it applicable to your problem. In fact, my Bonny 95 was idling rough but never died. I also felt it was not as quick as I was used to. But after 2 applications of Chevron-Techron fuel injector cleaner and switching to Chevron gas, my problems are gone.

>changed spark plugs and cables.
I hope you used OEM quality wires and GM plugs. How many miles are on your car?
You might check to be sure all your wires are still in place and connected.
If you try the Techron, put in at nearly empty tank and fill up with number of gallons for the size bottle you bought-I don't remember the two sizes they have. They have an injector cleaner and they have a fuel system cleaner. You might look for the fuel system cleaner. Use premium brand name fuel.
When down again if problem still there, repeat and fill up proper amount of premium fuel. Do not use again for a third time.
Usually when I put it in, I notice a difference in 10 miles or so. It doesn't take using the whole tank to feel and hear an improvement.

#1759 of 2268 Moon Roof leak?
Jan 23, 2006 (10:08 pm)
I have a 95 bommy and everytime it rains my right rear floorboard gets flooded. This is while the vehicle sits. Part of the headliner is wet too it looks as if it is leaking from the moon roof but the seals look fine. Does anyone have any suggestion before my wires short out, we don't have the luxary of a garage...

Aren't there drains tubes from the sunroof? Check those with a hose to see if they are carrying away water. I suspect one of those is backed up or leaking letting water get onto the headliner.
Do the rear-facing drains come out in front of the rear wheels? I'm trying to remember what posters have said in other discussions.
