I have a 97 deville concours with northstar that keeps giving me a P0300 code and SES light?

cars seldom idle rough when warming up if the injectors and electronics are in good condition
P0300 refers to random misfires which is the rough idle when warming up
the history in the fault codes is the fault report generated but not maintained as the fault rectifies itself
the ses is probably telling you to service the system--clean the injectors , fuel filter or check fuel pressure

A/c smells funny it seems like the clutch is out

Is system blowing cold air? if low gas system will blow warm and smell, When was the cabin filter last replaced, the cabin filter is used for inside air, make sure its clean,

I would start by having the system checked to make sure the gas is full and dye added so if system goes warm again the dye will show the leak.

I have a 2006 Kia Optima, it is running rough, sometimes when I stop it will die, if it doesn't die it idles really rough, and when I go to take off in it, it is very sluggish. My son thinks it need a...

Although is could be a fuel filter, it could also be a fouled spark plug, or a bad spark plug wire. Once you've ruled these things out, the problem could be the TPS (throttle position sensor). This controls your idling speed under all conditions. A faulty TPS will usually idle fine when the engine is cold but once warm, will tend to sputter and in some cases, stall.

you know what that sounds like it may be.... believe it or not check your trans fluid (car running WARM and in park ) make sure that the fluid is red almost pink like not dark red. Also why not try and change out the spark plugs and air cleaner!

Just got a 1990 olds cutlass suprime.has the3.1 has set outside for 1 year and not run.has trasmission leak at the pan.plan on replacing fiter and much fluid does it take?car runs rough...

Just changeing the filter and gasket, you shouldnt need much more than 4 liters (1 gal) just keep checking and dont over fill it.

as for the rough running after warm up. could be mass air flow sensor, to test, when car warm, tap the sensor wiht the handle of a screw driver when its running.. if it stumbles or stalls when you tap it. then it needs to be replaced. it could also be coolant temperature sensor, or leaking EGR valve.

Check engine light on Horn blows was blowing

1. Check engine lights come on for numerous reasons ranging from a bad CO2 sensor to the Catalytic Convertor being bad...a garage has the computer and the codes to tell you what is wrong, rough running, again, cold be numerous problems, fuel filter bad, worn plugs, broken plug wire/s. Sometimes, the reason the light comes on doesn't hurt the engine at all, and sometimes it means you NEED to get it looked at right now!

2. Horn could, and probably did have a short circuit somewhere, but really how often do you use a horn?

3. One more time, numerous reasons why the ABS indicator is on.

Without the vehicle being right in front of a person, especailly when three troubles are listed it's very-very hard, if not impossible, to make a good call.

I hope this helps you out some how.

Rough idle

I had the same exact problem on my 2004 Colorado (3.5L). Cleaned the MAF sensor (with MAF sensor cleaner) and throttle body/plate - cleared it right up.
