So, I have had my Bonneville in to numerous repair places and they can't seem to figure this one out. So when driving and I start to slow down maybe about 5 or 10 MPH and then I put my foot to the accelerator lightly the engine seems to bog down. It's kind of weird. Even had it to my Trans Guy and he does not see anything wrong. It's kind of an odd problem but it's like my shimmy of my right front wheel at speeds above 50. No one seems to find a problem.

Anyone have these issues?

You might be able to isolate it by having someone else drive while you read a scan tool.

Sounds like you maybe need to get new plugs and wires. Would be worthwhile to clean the throttle body itself and the sensors, if it's never been done.

I get no codes. As far as cleaning sensors, replacing plugs and wires. I have never cleaned any sensors but have had the plugs and wire replaced a couple of times. I was looking at doing the throttle body upgrade after polishing. But these I am willing to try.

I was having similar issues. Was convinced my trans was going. Found bad spot on spark plug wire where the wire and plug head cover meet....replaced that one wire.....now it runs like a dream.....

Well my plug wires where just replaced because of another issue that it fixed, but my trans guy says that mine is perfect. I've changed my fluids every 15k and had my trans guy just keep a good eye on my trans. But I do want to look in to the sensors that where mentioned above. Can someone specify which sensors? I have never cleaned or replace any sensors.

Thanks

It wouldn't hurt to check the spark plug wires again. You never know. - BC
EDIT: after you do check them again, just for "fun", when it's dark, run the engine and open the hood and see if there's anything unusual going on. - BC

A faulty throttle position sensor can be one source of trouble but they can't be cleaned.
Scotty Kilmer is a bit of a character, but makes decent how to videos about car issues and how to fix them. This one is about throttle position sensors https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPkk6md3Sy0
MAF sensors are a potential trouble source which can be cleaned with a special MAF sensor cleaner, designed to leave no residue behind that would interfere with sensor operation.
Here is a good video about it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xQGSkWEC_u4(You can skip the intro by jumping to 18 seconds).
With a different cleaner, you can also clean IAC valves and throttle plates and again, videos are on youtube.
These latter 2 items would more often affect idle.

Thanks for the input MKMike. I will look in to these and see if this is a problem. Right now this is a bit of a project car, but I am wanting to get it as close to the way I purchased it as I can. I'm buying all new tail and headlights and new paint job. I may be purchasing a replacement sun roof soon as well, but I really need to get these little mechanical issues done first.

Personally, I can't stand having anything not functioning the way its supposed to on a car--new or old.
If it's broken I just have to fix it.

Had all of those replaced about a year ago. They where in bad shape. Really had never heard of the hockey puck fix. But to late now just had them done so I should be good for some time.

I agree with you. The problem is I have my Diesel pickup that was taking most of my cash for upgrades and some engine jobs, so the bonnebill got neglected. See I have one of the finicky Ford 6.0 diesels that has had issues. This was the last of the International engines for Ford, so a lot of work had to go in to it. Now I have some time and money to work on the SSEi and get it back to pristine working order. I am kind of excited to get it done. I really want to get it to as close to the way I got it when it was new!
