'98 Bonneville SE
I have a couple of questions. I have had my '98 Bonneville SE since 1998. It'* black with 16" chrome wheels, spoiler, moon roof, leather seats, CD Player. It started as a leased vehicle, and I am in the process of buying out the lease. I do have a couple of concerns, and I was wondering if you guys could help me out.
1. Left Turns - When I don't come to a complete stop and turn left, it will sometimes bog down. The engine doesn't hesitate what-so-ever, it just gets slow all of a sudden. The only way to pick up speed again is to turn the wheel back straight. Any ideas??
2. Maybe it'* just me, but it seems like the engine is less powerful than it should be. It will reach 20 miles and hour and 4000 RPMs before it will shift to 2nd gear...I've had no problems with the engine or tranny....just wondering if this is normal.
3. What octane fuel is best to use in the L36 engines? My friend has a '98 GP GTP and he always uses 93 octane. I have been putting in 93 octane for the last month, but always had 87 octane before. It seems lately to be running a little worse. Anyone know??
4. CD Player....I very often burn CDs. Lately, they've been skipping on me. Are you suppose to clean the CD players? The manual says not...but I doubt that.
Any info would be greatly appreciated!!
