Last August, I bought a 2001 Bonneville SE (Lt. Bronzemist Metallic) with 45k on it. The car is good so far. However, it does have some quirks to it which I am hoping that you guys can help me with. I am from upstate NY, Watertown to be exact and I enjoy working on cars and especially detailing.
As for the quirks, about 3 months ago, when I back out of the driveway and put the car in drive for the first time most days, when I attempt to accelerate, the car will hesitate and then lurch forward. It only happens sometimes and for the first drive of the day. I have not changed the tranny fluid and filter. However, the fluid is a nice red color and full when checked. Otherwise, the tranny shifts fairly well. Anyone have any thoughts?
Also, I have a couple of miscellaneous noises coming from under the car while driving that I am unable to discern where they are coming from. Hopefully, next spring I will crawl under the car and be able to give you guys a better idea of the type of noise and where it is coming from (at least front or back).
Thanks for any input,
