I have a 1998 Bighorn 3.0L if the wrong grade of oil is used in the motor it miss fires and runs rough, due to the injectors being oil pressure controlled, I have heard of extreme cases causing a failure to start when cold. good luck

The thermostat is the quickest and cheapest thing to replace. Follow the upper radiator hose back to the housing. It is located beneath it. I would try that first.

If you are seeing signs of radiator fluid on the ground directly under the radiator fan area, then your waterpump is going, or has already gone out. Unfortunately, you have to remove the timing cover and belt to change it.

Try poking around in this forum. http://www.itocuk.co.uk/

Generally speaking for any vehicle. Check your air filter. It may be clogged. There is also a special spray for cleaning mass air flow sensors, like a carburetor cleaner spray. You loosen a hose clamp in front of the sensor and clean off the fine wire grill by spraying only. Don't touch. If you can see it from the air filter holder just blast down the tube. Let the gas evaporate a couple of minutes before you restart. The wires are delicate and need contact with the air to get a good reading.
You could also check the wires going into it. A blast of contact cleaner in a connector has cleared codes for me in the past, especially if leaking oil is blowing up. That is, if the filter and the sensor are clean.

You have an idle air control module by the throttle body in most cases if the ac is on this will cause the engine rpms to be so low that it will stall the engine your partstore can show you where it is located or a repair manual will be more effective!

Check that the vacuum line is connected to the unit. Everything nowadays is vacuum actuated. Even my '86 Blazer front drive is vacuum actuated.

You don't. It's a sealed unit.

one more anony post, making help hard if you have 2 or more post.
see? why do that?
why guess? why not use a real book on topic
well if any engine stalls, the CEL glows.
the CEL glows for the stall self tests. it glows telling you
the ECU is ok and has 12vdc power.
get the schematic for your car.
and find out why power is lost the EFI system. this is not the nebulas inertia switch,
what does SEEM mean.??? using a voltmeter works, looking and guessing not. use a voltmeter to find where power is lost.
your not stumped,
you dont have a meter
and dont have the book
so log in the alldata.com

btw2: no engine size stated, and guess what.
the schematic for all parts are different. fuel and electric.
if you go on line
the ask,year, make ,model and ENGINE.
can fix any engine, until you know what is there. impossible.
(unless you use BASICS for OTTO Cycle engines)
lets do that. for fun
got spark? no
got CEL ,no
Got power to ECU , no.
so you use the voltmeter to see where power is lost in this power feed system. (its a tree construct)

now a random answer, 6 cylinder engine.
Fuse C8 or F3 blown.
engine, and ECM F3 powers the whole ECU.(PCM)
main relay output wires dead. red/blue wires. killing all spark and fuel.
fuse C10 kills he CEL lamp dead.
is uses a volt meter, (walfart for $10?)
and both sides of these fuses read 12vdc to ground.
if not fuse is blow or input to this box is bad.
the engine bay fuse box runs the whole cab box.
do the head lights work.
are there other things dead , not stated?

one of these fuses or relay is dead.
or the dash lamp fuse blew, yous said they were dead
you key on, the CEL glows power to the PCM is below right.
if the fuse is dead both sides you blew the eng.bay main fuse.

if it was GM , it be free fix.
on flat pavement
or down a hill in SanFranciso with wheel hard against the curb.???
context is really important and not one photo offered.
ok wiggle the steering to the left , then right as the key is turned.
this action releases the key lock as stated in the operators guide,
'but in in SF? that is is hard. ask BRUNO.
In SF, the book says, set the wheel against the curb, and set the hand brake before, setting park. and key out. (park on last, off first)
if not , the key and or shifter can stick. and can need AAA call to fix.
A/T tranny are PITA.

Hi Juan, I think it would be more advisable to replace the oil filter which comes with the seal. Regards John
