    I cannot find a wiring diagram for your car. Recommend you buy a repair manual or perhaps they have one at the library. Look for the items that aren't working to see if they have a common source of power.

Wow slow done man, one at a time.
1. Your heater not working is related to your radiator, water pump and thermostat condition. Have your radiator a good clean flush and take it from there.
2. Your electricmirrors are related to your mirror wirings, check them using an OHm meter.
3.Oil light and oil temperature always on and not moving is because your oil switch light and temperature oil sensor is sensing low or no oil meaning defective sensor.
4. Take it to a garage or repair shop as you need to have an automechanical know-how to fix them all your problems.

Check oil light stays on

Your vehicle may have an "oil level" sensor built into the oil pan. If so, and the sensor is bad, the dash will constantly tell you that the engine needs more oil even if it does not. Checking the oil with the dipstick, a minute after the engine has been turned off on level ground is always the best way to check your oil. Try scanning the vehicles computer systems to see if there are any fault codes. The warning light may also be on a timer that just needs to be reset. The "Check Oil" light should be separate from the engine oil pressure warning light. As long as the engine oil pressure light stays off, you should be ok. Checking the oil pressure with a manual gauge would be a good idea as well.

My 1993 Vette is driving me crazy!! It seems to always start 1st thing in the morning. Then I can drive it all day sometimes without any problems (doesn`t happen very often anymore) and some times I will...

Electrical issues are the most difficult to fix. If you can't duplicate the problem in the shop, you're usually out of luck. It could be a weak relay for things like the fuel pump, a weak electrical connection somewhere, problems with the circuit board inside the engine computer, and so on. It would help if you could narrow down the area of interest like fuel or spark. Carry a can of starting fluid and a spark plug tester and be ready to check things when it quits running or won't start. And check the computer for trouble codes even if the check engine light doesn't come on.

Stalls when stopped at a light

Do you have more information? Such as, does it do this every single time you are stopped? Does it ever happen when you aren't quite at a complete stop? How soon does it stall after stopping at the light (right when it's completely stopped? As you apply the gas to move again?)?

Mainly a vehicle will stall do to a problem relating to the fuel/air system. Specifying any 'special conditions' (very hot, very cold, etc.) when the stalling seems to be more prone to happening (if any) will help with a diagnosis.

It could possibly be a bad/faulty fuel pump, where the engine isn't getting the proper flow of gas (in a case like yours, it would most likely be an intermittent flow).

Also, a faulty throttle positioning sensor (TPS) could be the problem. These are a somewhat 'run of the mill' problem in vehicles in general and aren't overly expensive to replace. This is even more likely the problem if your vehicle stalls when you are taking off from the stop light. This isn't difficult to test yourself and there was plenty of directions to do so online and elsewhere.

A vacuum leak is another possibility. Another symptom of this can be a high idle (higher than usual for your vehicle at least).

Lastly, I wouldn't imagine this to be very common but it's worth a look, and i only mention it because it was the problem with my '87 Celebrity that suddenly stalled at a stop light, then kept stalling whenever i pressed the gas to move. The car had a known engine oil leak, one area of which it effected being the air filter housing (old-fashioned circular one). I noticed, once i finally got moving (albeit only for a short time before stalling again) it sounded as though the engine wasn't getting enough air. Even though i had just recently replaced the air filter, i checked it and found it was completely covered with dirty engine oil. I took out the dirty air filter and it solved it. It just hadn't been letting enough air through. So, simple solution though not commonly the case. No harm in checking anyways.

Good luck.

2009 c-class auto stalling when stopping?

Throttle sensor on the engine is the only thing that would cause this to happen.Have it checked or do a diagnostic yourself with a code tester.Get the code and look in your manual for that code.The engine management/check engine light will always come on after a stall when swich is still on.Comes on when you turn the swich on at startup also does it not.Computers ya know.

1999 Olds Aurora. Overheats after 10 min. Noticed oil film in the surge tank and in the over flow. Cooling system has been flushed, thermostat is new as is water pump. Belts have been replaced including...

10 minuts really isnt enough time to even get up to operating tempature much less overheat. I would suspect from what you describe you may have a head gasket problem. compression from the cylinder will leak into the cooling system and push out the coolant. The fact that you have oil residue may confirm this. Does the temp guage read high when this happens or a warning light come on?... im suspecting probably not. There also could be an outside chance of a cracked head or block. most likely not but always an outside chance. Good Luck!!

Susuki baleno 4cyl 1.6l blowing smoke

It sounds like a piston oil ring is broken considering the valve stem guides and seals have been done, oil is definately getting into the combustion chamber there are only two places that can happen through the valves or through the rings, black smoke is always too much gas, blue smoke is always to much oil in combustion chamber. Hope this helps even though it's not the best news.

Check the thermostat. Maybe it's stuck closed or maybe it was installed backwards.
