98 SE Bucking and stalling!
Hello! I have a Pontiac Bonneville 98 SE that bucks and stalls after about
10 minutes of driving. I think that it might be a tranny problem, as it only
seems to to do it in low gear. The check engine light flicks on and
off,whenever the bucking starts. As long as i have my foot on the
accelerator, It won't die. Once it dies, I can pop it into neutral, and it
will start back up, but i immediately have to accelerate in order to keep it
'alive'. This has been an ongoing problem, that I've tolerated for about a
year, because nothing else seems to be going wrong, and I really don't have
the money to throw parts at it. I have taken it into three different shops
for other problems in the past year, and mentioned this, but no one seems to
be able to diagnose it, and one of them even ran a diagnostic on it, and
pulled no codes. My roomate rented a diagnostic machine today, though, and
it pulled up the code for a mass airflow sensor. Could this actually be the
I am not too terribly handy with cars. Also im sorry if this problem is redundant, I'm new here.
