It startd riding rough I would get up to speed around 35mph an the car would start to jack n then wen I would drop dwn speed it would do the same thing. I went back to the car dealer an they put it on the diagnostic test only code he pulld up was the 02 sensor he cleard the code an said it prolly jus came on cuz the car was sittin for a min. Afte leavin like 5mins later it came back on. I'm taking it bk to the shop Tuesday bt I jus wana get sum help so I cn have an idea an dey dnt try to charge me ou the a&* for sumthn not that major.

Don't know about the code. Add your trim level to your signature so that we can help you out.

There is no problem with the O2 sensor. 0742 TCC stuck on is the code I would worry about. That'* a transmission problem. Best get that problem fixed at the dealer.

The Torque converter needs to slip, that'* it'* job. Otherwise the engine works to hard. It'* something I would insist be fixed ASAP seeing you just bought the car. If they are unwilling to fix it they can take the car back. There should be a inspection list on the window sticker. The car should not have inspection. The car is going to buck when in lock up.

trimline=year, make, model. you said u had an 00 boneville, but is it an se, an sle, or an SSEi. Its best to be as specific as possible. the guys on here can really finetune their advice that way. And yeah this isnt facebook, and it is your ride on the line we're talking about, so please please type clearly. I'd hate for there to be a miscommunication all because we didnt kno what you were trying to tell us. And welcome to the forum

Ok I gt a 2000 bonneville se 120k everythng stock. I went bk to where I purchased the car frm an the mechanic gne tell me the only code he pulld up was the 02 sensor. An he says that'* not coverd under my warrenty n they tryin to charge me 100+ jus for that. Nw wit the TC is that sumthing dealing with the transmission cuz if so my trans is coverd bt hw will I convince them that if they only sayn dat 02 sensor. I also notice my gages gas,oil pressure, an thermostat movin the guy at autozone said it culd b anthr sensor culd that be true. And this may b the dumest ? bt where is the batt? this is my first pontiac an I can't seem to find it anywhere.

The O2 sensor is easy to change, perhaps $40 or $50 for the part. Charging for the scan is out of hand, autozone does it for free. With your gauges moving, that'* not a sensor, to many different gauges and each has a different sensor. A round problem is more likely the problem. The torque converter is part of the transmisstion. It'* the connection point between the engine and the trans. Take him for a ride and show him what'* up. To much relaying on computers, a good machanic can fix most problems without the computer. Your battery is under the rear seat.
