Hi, Joehravitt46 to validate it is indeed a fuel issue spray starting fluid into the air cleaner then try starting if it fires up and runs for a few seconds then dies then you definitely have a fuel problem, you need to locate the fuel flow origin first to isolate the problem area otherwise the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. Fuel cap or fuel tank not venting properly.
3. Fuel filter clogged with rust or dirt.
4. Fuel valve not in the on or reserve position.
5. Vacuum line to fuel valve or VOS is cracked, broken, pinched, or missing.
6. Fuel valve/petcock clogged or diaphragm cracked, cut or torn.
7. Faulty fuel valve allowing fuel to enter the combustion chamber through the intake vacuum line
7. Fuel line from the fuel valve to the carburetor or fuel pump clogged, cracked, pinched, bent, broken, or missing.
8. Fuel pump not working.
9. Fuel line touching cylinder or head causing fuel to boil and vapor lock, repair by rerouting and wrapping line with convoluted tubing.
10. Carburetor inlet clogged.
11. Carburetor float or needle and seat stuck.
12. Carburetor not venting properly overflow line or bowl fitting clogged, pinched, or bent.

yes, but it would be several thousand dollars with all of the parts and labor. these require feedback from sensors, a high pressure fuel pump, a different wiring harness, and plenty of other parts that are very expensive.

Where is the carburetor located on a 1988 pontiac bonneville

All, well, mostly all, carburetors are located right in the center of the engine, on top of the head block. Some have a black cover, so to see the carburetor, you must remove that cover.

Gas leak between carburetor and gas tank

Above solution is a good start. Also, you can purchase a sealant like Hylomar M that should work really well but if the mfg offers a gasket that will be the cheapeast way to start. Ask or research online for one that can withstand continuous contact with gasoline.

It sounds like the needle valve in the carburetor is not seating properly to shut off the fuel. A badly worn needle or dirt/debris in the needle seat area can cause this. Disassembly of the carb and a good cleaning will be required.

Hi, my 01 Bonneville SSEI keeps saying check gas cap, then the check engine light comes on, I have replaced the gas cap and that did'nt fix it. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Hello: You need to find out if there are any codes in the engine control module. Go to a parts store ie: Auto Zone, Advance Auto and have the codes read, they normally don' charge. If the code is for the Evap system have them clear the code and see if it comes back.

2006 Triumph Bonneville T100 carburetor tuning

Hi, Jdmwoods if you have changed your fuel delivery system, air filter size or flow rate, mufflers or exhaust system or a significant change in altitude your carburetors need re-tuning and if your fuel system (gas tank, filters, fuel valve and carburetor) is contaminated with ethanol sludge, varnish, rust, dirt, water etc. or your bike has been sitting for months or years without running these components must be "PROPERLY" cleaned and reassembled "CORRECTLY" before any adjustments can be made. Tuning your carburetor is fairly simple once you understand the basic principals. You engine is a simple airbox sucking air in and blowing it out, it is finely tuned at the factory for maximum performance once you upset that delicate balance by changing air filters, camshafts or exhaust systems your performance may go down the and the engine may run poorly, you need to compensate the air-fuel mixture in the carburetor in order for the engine to run smoothly and at peak performance. If you are running multi carburetors you need to sync them first and make sure your air cleaner element is clean and dry for paper elements or lightly oiled for foam and meshed elements and properly installed. Here is how and where you compensate trouble: "TIP" if your engine "BOGS" you're not getting enough fuel.
1. Close to 1/8 throttle is managed by the air screw and pilot/slow jet.
2. 1/8 to 1/4 throttle is managed by the air-screw, pilot/slow jet, and throttle slide.
3. 1/4 to 1/2 throttle is managed by the throttle slide and jet needle.
4. 1/2 to 3/4 throttle is managed by the jet needle, needle jet, main jet, and air jet.
5. 3/4 to wide open throttle is managed by the main jet and air jet.
6. Wide open throttle is managed by the main jet.
If you are running lean, spark plug electrode color is white, engine runs hot and feels like it is starving for fuel you need to go up on the jet size or move the c-clip down one notch. If you are running rich, spark plug color is black or dark gray, the engine runs cool, and bogs down when accelerating you need to go down on jet size or move the c-clip up one notch. When your carburetor is properly tuned for maximum performance your spark plug electrode will be a light tan color like coffee with cream. If you prefer fuel economy over performance you can go down on main jet sizes until a satisfactory level of lower performance is acceptable versus MPH, your spark plug color will be whiter and your engine will run warmer. These tuning adjustments will only make improvements if your intake and exhaust system have no air leaks or sealing issues and the entire electrical system is in proper working order and you have no mechanical issues.

Bonneville still wont start any other ideas going to drain all liqiuds and put new fluids in then go from there if anyone lives around sun prairie wi please lend a helping hand whatelse should i do

First off, don't bother with the liquids draining. The only liquid that makes any difference is the fuel. Your car will still run with no oil, antifreeze, etc. What you need to do is to troubleshoot this. This car has a carburetor, so it is easy. Take the air cleaner off, and look in the top of the carburetor while pulling on the throttle linkage. You should see a squirt of gas inside the carburetor. If you don't, then you aren't getting gas, and you need to check your fuel filter, fuel pump, and fuel lines, in that order. If you do, then you aren't getting spark. If this is the case, you will have to first test to see if the distributer has power to it when the ignition switch is turned on. If not, run power from the battery to the distributer and try it. If it doesn't run then, you have to dig into the distributer. Take the cap off. Do you see anything that looks burnt, broken wires, rotor broken, anything like that? If so, replace it. There may be a rusty colored deposit on everything; that's ok. If you still haven't found the problem, it is likely either the coil, which is in the distributer cap, or it is the regulator inside the distributer. Either can be replaced easily and cheaply. Hope this helped get your pontiac on the road.

Hi I have a 2007 Bonneville Black with 2400 miles. 2 days ago I found a puddel of gas under the bike. Today I started working on the bike when I opened up the air cleaned it was full of gas I dryed it out...

The fuel flow was not shut off when you found the leak right? If your leak has not returned then it was most likely caused from the fuel being forced back through float bowl, then up and out the air inlet in to your air cleaner. How much fuel did you find? Once the flow has been shut of to the carburetor there's not much fuel left to leak out. Maybe a 1/4 cup.
If you had more then that it had to be coming from the tank.

My 01 bonneville oil pressure gauge is showing 120 and my gas gauge is all over the place

HI, the oil pressure sending unit may be malfunctioning at this point. this will cause erratic readings. if your oil level is proper and there are no apparent oil leaks, you will need to replace the oil pressure sending unit. this will fix the erratic oil pressure readings.

Concerning the gas gauge. this device also has a sending unit that sends the correct fuel level reading to the gas gauge via wire transfer. this sending unit is located and attached to the fuel pump assembly inside the gas tank. replacing this device will fix this issue as well.

Please rate and god bless:)
