Sounds like you made have a bad tempature switch/relay for the fan. When the check engine light is on have Autozone or a mechanic run the codes for you and see what comes up. You may even be able to scan it now and see what codes are in the memory and be able to base it off that.

Pontiac grand am stalling

A lot of possible causes - have you checked for trouble codes (DTCs)? If no codes, given the age it could be in the fuel delivery system (for example, fuel pump stopping either due to an intermittent electrical problem at the ignition switch or in the wiring such as corroded connectors).

Coolant temperature light stays on and car runs hot

could be a number of things, the thermostat, the fan,the temp sensor. first thing is make sure you have enough coolant. second, make sure the fan comes on when it starts getting hot. if they are good, you probanly have to replace the thermostat and or sensor. the sensor should make the check engine light come on.

96 grand am 2.4L DOHC, replaced the Crankshaft sensor and the throttle body sensor. Engine is hard to start and won't stay running. Sounds like when a choke is stuck and backfires when it quits running

Check the charging system13.65 volts,to 14.25 volts at the battery when running and lights and blower fan on high.Check the battery connections,that they are clean.The fuel pressure maybe low,check the fuel filter,and the fuel pressure to see if the fuel pump is weak.

CODE PO102 after Mass Air Flow Sensor replaced

Most faultcodes don't disappear automaticly, the have to be 'reset' manually after repairing. It sounds like the code didn't get erased after replacing the MAF. You could try to disconnect the battery for 10 minutes (disconnect and reconnect the negative (-) pole), which should erase the code.

Whenever the engine light still comes back on after that, there probably still is some (other) problem ...

Radiator Fan's Run All The Time

There are 2 things that will cause this to happen. 1. The thermostat needs to be replaced and, 2. The coolant sensor can be bad. When I had this problem, I changed them both at the same time, she been just fine since then. Also, I had the check engine light on, and got the code from AutoZone (it's free!)
