Default 2 problems with the bonnie

1st the rear left wheel is leaning outward from the bottom, I seen this problem with a lot of bonnies is this normal? 2nd my bonnie feels like its congested, sometimes when I accelerate from an stop I hear some rattling underneath the car, my guess is the muffler. Does anyone have any suggestions thanks for the help in advance.

Koko, I've only seen one car with that 'leaning' problem. Please take your car to an alignment shop for a diagnosis. It could be 6 different things.

Secondly, we can't diagnose your problems without knowing which of the 4 engines you could possible have from 92-99. Can you put your year and trim level in your signature by editing your profile? The link is at the top of the page. Your location would be a great help also.

as for the wheel...im guessing that it need a alignment

as for the rattle....check to make sure all the shields are intact and not falling off the car....also poke the cat with something when the car is off and see of it rattles

Heatshield above the muffler is a good place to start. It will be pretty obvious when you take a peek under the car.

the rattling and the "congestion" could be your catalytic converter. On my old grand prix, my cat was old and the inside broke apart, causing the rattle, and somewhat clogging the exhaust, causing a lack of power. just something to look at.

With this and the ELC problem, I think someone bottomed out their car.
