Grandammit!!! Bad oxygen sensor could cause the stalling or it needs new plugs and since it is 8 years old, give it new plugs and wires...then if the problem persists with NO CHECK ENGINE LIGHT....then it is a mechanical problem with the engine. If your check engine light IS on...then take it to any shop with OBD2 diagnostics so the codes can be analized and the proper repair performed.

The wires are burnt together at the head light switch how do i change the wires also do i need to put a new head light switch i had bright lights only and was replacing the switch to try and correct the...

You will need to replace the switch and the connector to the switch, a new switch will not cure the problem and will quickly overheat and burn out again unless the burnt connector is also replaced. You will need to contact a local Chevy dealer for the replacement headlight connector
To replace the switch follow these instructions:

1. Park the truck on a level surface and set the parking brake. Place your foot on the brake then put the key in the ignition. Turn the key to the "On" position but do not start the truck.

2. Shift the automatic shift lever to the "1" position and tilt the steering column to its lowest position using the tilt adjustment on the bottom left side of the steering column.

3. Hold the bezel/trim around the instrument cluster and pull it towards you to release the clips holding it to the dashboard. Work your way around the bezel, pulling it as you go, until it's only connected to the dash by wiring. Unplug those wiring harnesses from the back by hand then put the gear shifter back into park. Bring the bezel to a table or counter that you can work on.

4. Turn the bezel onto its face. Locate the headlight switch which should be on the lower right corner of the bezel. There are delicate plastic fingers that hold the switch to the dashboard. Carefully pry these away from the switch with the flat head screwdriver in one hand while pulling the switch away from the bezel with the other until it's free.

5. Push the replacement switch into the bezel until it clicks into place. Then bring the bezel back to the SUV. Put your foot on the brake and shift the shifter into the "1" position again. Plug in the connections on the bezel then push the bezel into place on the dashboard until it clicks. Put the shifter back in park, tilt the column to its desired location and turn the ignition off.

When replacing the connector cut one wire at a time and transfer it to the same position on the new connector, solder and shrink tube each wire, take your time. Remember one wire at a time.

1995 LeSabre - Starts and runs fine, but engine cuts off without warning. First time, 5mph in a crowded school commute traffic. Put in park, and started right away. Second time, after turning onto...

If the motor gets hot and cuts off and will not start for a period of time the problem would be the crank sensor. The sudden cut off and starting right back up can be due to dirty battery cable connections. Remove them from battery and clean all three of them with a wire brush and replace both bolts.

Maybe you got a load of bad gas that has a lot of water or contaminants in it? Pulling and draining the fuel filter to see what comes out of it will give you an idea.

I would buy a used one if you can (dme chip). Have you cleaned the fuel injectors? one could be faulty and could be a coincidence about the car working better after taking the relay out and putting back in. could be a bad cpu also. would love to hear what happened if you get it fixed. good luck

Car seems to cut out on power. Had to pull over on the highway one time. Now it sputters. At stops it takes awhile to pick up speed

Pull the 02 sensor and do a back pressure test on the catylitic convertor and make sure that you are getting too much back pressure. If you are, you will need to replace it, and see why it failed since they never go bad, they are killed by missfires.

Intermittent High Idle, Dies on cold starts, bad mileage

These cars are notorious for intake manifold leaks. This could also be a throttle position sensor. If you have a MIL (check engine light) I would scan it with an OBD II scanner and pull the relevent code off the scanner it will give us a much more accurate direction to proceed
