G'day zac, the codes mentioned don't really relate to a 2001 model, the first thing to check though is the fuses for the left bank heater circuit these codes will be there but no apparent difference in performance. Now, is the engine running rough or pinging as the 3s depicts the engine as a twin cam and these 2 codes would indicate that the cam positions are too far advanced. Best course of action would be to get a tradesman to plug in his trusty obd11 fault code scanner and see what comes up on the magic screen.

Where is the low side port to add r134a to 1996 olds acheiva

locate the A/C lines along the passenger side that go from the condenser to the firewall. the low side port is smaller than the high side port. you have to look at the ports to see the difference is size and they each should have a cap screwed on them to keep dirt out of port.

98 olds acheiva won't start, replaced starter and solenoid and tried the turn key on for 10 minutes then turn off and start, did not work I see no chip in my key but security light stays on and car...

If the security light is on, then it can only be one thing. The security system is failing and immobilizing your car. Go to this link and read up on the problem. The security light is a dead give away that the security is messed up. If you have no little black chip in the shaft of your key, then this means you must have a passlock that runs on the transponder. You need the PERMANENT fix from this site.

Have a 96 Olds Acheiva. It starts and runs for about a second then quits. It will only start when the gas pedal is half way pressed. Any other position and it will not start at all. Is this the fuel...

If the security light is blinking, the car thinks its being stolen and has engaged the antitheft, passlock system. All you have to do is leave the key in the ignition, in the on position for about 30 mins... this will reset the passlock system, then your car will start.

96 grand am pop under accelation

Which engine 2.4 Twin Cam or 3.4 V6? The 4 cylinder engine is based on the old Quad4 and I would guess it's either running lean (weak fuel pump) or it's misfiring and you need to replace the spark plugs. Use only AC Delco platinum plugs or it will misfire ( other brands of platinum plugs can cause misfire, especially Bosch). If you have a 3.1 or 3.4 ltr V6 check for leaking intake manifold gaskets.
