Having problems with your 1998 Pontiac Bonneville ?
My auto is running high rpms when in park (4000)
\015 I just got my car out of the shop. had the rack and pinon replaced, the week before I had the power steering hose and radiator cap replaced, as the mechanic said I had a leak. My engine coolant is having to be refilled every day, so I must still have the leak. I also have a leak where the rack and pinon was replaced. there seems to be a leak on the drivers side..(was told it was the transmission pan) so had those bolts tighted. still leaking. my car makes this ticking noise when started like the lifters are bad, it seems to be running away from itself, when driving down the street, (like something is stuck) no matter if you put in overdrive or drive no change. It also has a roaring noise. Any help you could provide me would be greatly appreciated. 1998 Pontiac Bonneville SE 4 DR with 129,000 miles\015
As for the coolant loss issue, you may have an upper intake problem. These are made out of plastic & they will deteriorate close to an egr passage next to a coolant passage. Eventually the deterioration causes coolant to get sucked into the lower intake. WARNING, do not continue to drive it like this because it can **** enough coolant into the lower intake to "hydrolock" the eng & cause major internal damage. If you catch this problem early enough, all that is needed is a new upper intake.
