Default 1993 Bonneville SSE Problems???????????

Since I just bought it I want to know what kind of problems a 93 has had most commonly. I'm not talking about regular maintenece problems I'm talking major problems like any engine, tranny, and steering. So far from driving it it seems to be fine other than the back breaks grind alittle. I'm going to be needing new tire before winter. A classic buy here pay here car. Overall it'* a pretty comfortable ride the color is nice and the interior is pretty nice. I love the sunroof too.

The grinding noise is probably from brake dust in the drum. Had the same problem until I had the rear brake shoes replaced last month. Alot of brake dust had accumulated in the drums. Now no more grinding noise. Update your signature about your Bonne if it is stock, any mods so that other BC members are able to help. Post some pics for all to enjoy.

The SSE taillights delaminate... and lower intake gaskets as they get higher mileage.

Watch for various fluid lines to rust out. This includes the power steering lines, automatic trans lines and the hardest to fix, the rear brake lines. If you are very handy with car repairs, it'* a LOT easier to plan for these problems, and collect all the parts BEFORE they start leaking.

Your rear brake noise may also be associated with a leaky cylinder.

I have never been happy with my rear brakes, no matter what I do they still are noisy and tend to lock up.

Another item that can get you is that the rubber ring on the crankshaft balancer rots away. If you hear an ungodly noise from the engine some day, it'* a good chance that is what it is.
