Default My Bonneville is going dead. Suggestions please.

That'* about it. Is there a screw somewhere I can turn to make the engine idle faster. That is what I feel would need to be changed. I have recently replaced the spark plugs, the plug wires, the air filter, the plenum. It has just started this.

I use injector cleaner. The car has been taken really good care of. Its our daily machine.

Thanks.

If you get to looking, Yes there is a screw to do that, But do not turn that screw. It is not an idle speed screw.


I suspect TPS troubles, Do you have and SES light and have you scanned for codes? AutoZone should scan your OBD2 for free.
