New to the board
Just picked up a 2003 Bonneville SLE (134,000 miles) and after finding this board seem like I am part of a new family. This board is incredible. Here are the few issues I have discovered and what I planning to do:
Check gas cap code - I will probably buy new cap and clean filler neck very good. Should make the error go away.
Whining noise under hood - Appears to be coming from idler pulley and will replace the pulley
No cabin air filiter - Put in one.
Previous owner (good guy) states it uses a little oil. Will change PCV valve. He may not have done this.
Oil presure gauge pegged at 120 - I will replace oil pressure sending unit.
I can feel a little clunk in the steering system. Not bad. Plan to try and lube but not quite sure from other posts how to do this.
I am a little concerned about all the talk about intake manifold gaskets. Previous owner never had issues with this. Will probaly just let it ride unless I get advice that states otherwise.
Thanks again for the great forum.
This car is in great shape and I hope to keep it running for many more years. Thanks for all the advice
