Default Hello.

I was going to attach this to my first post about a technical issue but it ended up being long so it seems like it belongs here instead:

A little history on me since this is my first post: When I turned 16 and my parents got me a car it was a 87 Bonneville, then a couple years later when it was time for a new one the best deal turned out to be a 88 Bonneville so I drove that for a couple years too. Then eventually my dad'* friend as work had to get rid of his car because he was moving back to his home country and couldn't take the car with him and it just so happened to be a 95 Bonneville so we got that and I drove that for a couple years. At one point it seemed like we were going to lose the car but then we realize the problem was it blew a hole (i think in the upper manifold) and leaked coolant into the engine. We tore the engine apart and cleaned the whole thing out and it worked fine from then. I went away to college for 3 years and didn't need a car so it sat in the drive way at home for that time. We just got it up and running again, no major problems. We had to redo the whole rear brake line (hooray for GM metric flares) and part of the fuel line and return line and some general matainence. We're finishing up a couple things now like the fog lamps. I've been driving Bonnevilles my whole driving life and I love them.

Welcome ...

Nothing wrong with a comfy car that runs forever now is there?

Welcome Tjen.
I've been thru all the problems you have already too. Check the fuel line up by the fuel filter; it may be your next 'project'. I just did mine this past weekend.
