I'm about 10 miles north of Daytona in Ormond Beach.
I'm originally from Fayette City, near Belle Vernon on the Mon river.
Kinda happy to remove the "Bowser" label from the Bonneville. My first, and only other Pontiac, was a 1984 Fiero. It spent months in Bowser'* shop after the first blown motor (cracked head) and I never had a good experience with their service department. Second blown motor (cracked block) in it was done under the recall by Jack Rolley Pontiac in Belle Vernon, and took damn near as long. Car never got the chance to blow it'* third motor. After it caught fire from motor #2, it got sold as soon as it could move under it'* own power again. Since then, I've never turned my cars over to dealers except in an emergency when no other option is available. I'd rather have the car towed 100 miles back to the house, then let a dealership mechanic mess with it.
Nimnicht Pontiac in Jax did OK be me last week, when the Bonneville was acting up. I was on the company clock had no choice but to cough up and let them take a peek under the hood. The mechanic found a loose ground on the motor and it hasn't acted up since, so I guess that was the cause of the bizzare SES light/gauges going nuts.
