{: ) A few of the many possible reasons I can think of : ignition switch, engine fuseblock, ECT sensors, engine control module, TDM, wiring ..... When you said you brought many technical guys, i presume they didint miss checking the oil, and fuel pressure, and coolant. I dont think an expired oil life reading can stall your vehicle. Actually, if the oil life remaining reads 100%, you are still very far to servicing your engine oil. The counting is from 100% going towards 0%. I suggest a scan tool readout, it wont hurt your car much. Just to trim down some of the guessing games, and get a clearer view.

My check engine light came on after I failed to close gas cap tightly on my 2008 Acadia, how do I reset computer

It should reset itself after a few start/stop cyles.
If not, or you're in a hurry, find the ECM fuse and pull it out, wait a few seconds and replace it.

How do you replace the front amber running light in a 2008 GMC Acadia

Turn off engine and open the hood
Remove the front wheelhouse liner. Whichever side, say we begin with the front left(drivers). If you dont wish to remove the front left tire, just turn the wheels far to the right to gain enough clearance. And you dont need to remove the whole liner and all the screws and retainers. . Just remove only those nearest the headlight and front bumper area in order to loosen the front half portion of the wheelhouse liner. Just enough for your arms to reach inside.
At this point, try to reach in for the rear of the running lamp. Work your hands inside to remove the lamp from its socket. Note the position before turning and pulling it out.

Note: If you still need more clearance for better access, you can (1) remove the tire. or (2) remove the 3 screws that secure the bumper to the body, and then pull outwards to loosen.Try to reach in again.
Just need some patience, though. goodluck. okay? : )

Where is the power steering reservior in a 2008 GMC Acadia? Owner's manual points(and indicates) passenger front, but I don't see anthing there. Is it hidden under some sort of cover, like the radiator...

Hi, viewer! The steering pump reservoir is on the right side area of the engine but is concealed underneath the top engine dress cover. Remove first the engine oil cap, turn it conterclockwise to loosen out. Then pull the engine dress cover upwards from side to side. There are no bolts, and there are only 2 clips holding the cover from below. Just pull carefully upwards with enough force to detach . And don't forget about the oil cap when fixing it all back. okay, sir? : )
