I'm located in Richmond, VA.

I believe my car is an SSE, though not entirely sure.

Youre Bonne should have the "SSE" badges on it as well as the fog lights in the center of the front bumper on each side of your license plate area. Also, you would have dual exhaust at each corner in the back bumper like my car below.

We should have some members near you...will have to see if they check in here and are willing to help.

Wow, you guys rule. I didn't think I'd get this much help. I really appreciate you all taking time to help me out.

I think my Bonne mau only be SE, it has the fog lights, but only single exhaust.

All bonnes in your year have fog lights. It is the placement of the fog lights that is different on SE vs. SSE and SSEi.

SE fogs are BELOW the bumper at each corner. SSE and SSEi have fog lights IN the bumper toward the center, next to the license plate area.

White Bonne on the left is an SE.....Teal Bonne on the right is an SSEi (same as SSE, bodywise)

So guys, here'* an update.

I replaced my alternator, and the squealing has stopped, and the engine sounds like its running alot better.

However the car still cuts off. I drove around the block to test it, and it seems like after I accelerate, and then just the car coast the oil pressure gauge will drop to nothing, and so will the tachometer, and the car shuts off.

So I'm going to get some fuel injector cleaner, and fill my tank up with high test fuel.

When you found the bad plug wire for #3, did you change all the plugs and wires at that time?
