    i will be driving and sometimes when i let off the gas completely the car will shut off. when im on the highway and release the gas it acts like it wants to shut of and it kind of jerky. any thoughts i think it has something to do with the air to fuel.

Sound like your idle air control valve is sticking since that is what controls your air mixture in idle position. it can be removed and cleaned but you may have to buy a new one. usually when its intermittent, cleaning and lubricating is the trick from my experience

2002 Suburban_ Engine off but air stays on. When engine is on a/c light stays on & ait stays on even if the fan is turned off


Fan will run for a certain period of time after shutting down motor of vehicle. This is normal. Your engine is still hot when you turn the key off. There are sensors that tell the computer when the engine is cool enough for the fans to shut off.

My 1993 nissan sentra 1.6 wont run and check engine light wont turn on,bulb is ok


Could be any of several things. If the crank sensor is marginal and not sending pulses, the fuel pump is shut off. This is for safety. The pump is energized for a few seconds as key is turned in preparation for starting then engine must rotate normally to keep the pump on. If it stops, in a few seconds the fuel is cut off.

Engine light came on


You should never drive with a red engine light there is always the risk of further damage to engine,this could mean no or low oil pressure driving like that will damage the engine. Check oil level first check coolant level and get back to me.
