2000bonnevilleSLE is on a distinguished road
Default 2000 Bonneville SLE

Hello. I was wondering if any of you would be able to help me pin point a problem i am having with my 3800. Starts up fine when cold, but as soon as the engine tempereture gets up to running tempereture the car starts to hesitate and bog, then stalls... I have change coil pack(and modual). spark plugs, and wires. thermostat is new, gas filter is also new. I cant pin point this problem. I was thinking that maybe it could be a tempereture sensor or just something simple. Please help me out on this one. Thank you very much in advance. Gord Rideout

How many miles on the car?

Try shaking the catalytic convertor. If you hear rattling, it'* clogged and the likely root of your issue. A clogged cat will not throw a check engine light, but will give you the symptoms you described.
