Engine heat may be thinning oil enough to drop pressure. Fix overheating first. Thermostat, bad cat converter or muffler, bad water pump, etc.

The throttle body needs cleaning. It has some carbon build up, and when the battery went dead the computer lost its learned values, one of which is base throttle position. Now its reset back to factory specs, not accounting for a dirty throttle body. Seen it a million times

If you smell fuel, Try locating the source. It may be a fuel line leak if the smell is that strong. You may be loosing fuel preasure to the injectors if a leak is occuring. Always start with the basics along with visual over sight before repairs.

SOURCE: my 2000 bonneville 3.8 v6 SE bogs, chugs, sputters

Faulty coolant system gaskets are allowing coolant into the block. You will notice a sticky sweet smell as it is running rough. You will need to replace all the gaskets (2 gaskets and one "elbow") from the coolant system to the engine. Not fixing this problem can cause a cracked head gasket. Check the area to the passenger side of the engine near the coolant tank, you will see a bolt on the block itself with an exposed nut. If this area is greasy, wet or otherwise corroded your system is leaking into the block.

How can i fix my 2003 holden barina `eps warning light from coming on

It'll pay to have the crank sensor checked. They're known for heating up and stalling the car when they're no longer any good. Usually once it has cooled down the car will start but as soon as the sensor gets hot it'll stall again

Stalling when turn back on

all stalls end in CEL check engine light on. that is normal
but CEL glow. when engine running , means you had a failure, and it stored DTC error codes, so scan it.
lots of causes. huge list.
get a tune up , tops list.

SCAN it to be sure all sensors work. running.
all fuses in car good.
by stalls , i assume the engine stalls and engine RPM is 0 RPM.
the stall cause the whole dash to light up, all the warning lamps come
on (self test) oil , charge , CEL. come on.
what is important is the stall and the cause.

i will tell you the 3 ways.
lost electrical power to engine EFI system (seems not)
bad engine, (lost compression hot)?
bad spark , spark died.?
bad fueling, lost all fueling (starves and stalls or floods and misfires horribly and stalls (black spark plug tips are big time clue)

if non eof the rings a bell.?
get the car serviced.

this car is newer nicer car, you (we) can scan and drive and log data.
allowing faster easy diagnosis.

2004 chevy silverado 5.3L V8 runs rough and stalls

Well, code 336 is for a problem with the crank sensor, and code 171 is for fuel system too lean bank one which is the side with cylinder one. Since you have checked fuel pressure and I will assume fuel volume is good, the crank sensor or circuit could be at fault.

Rough Idle when cold runs seems to run ok hot but still almost stalls when you turn on AC and you are at a stop also noticed that the volt meter reads 9v with the AC and the lights on with the AC and...

mcdevito75 here, Sounds like a faulty voltage regulator, it"s 1 unit with the alternator, change the alternator, also the alt. supplies juice to the ignition switch, distributor abd plugs, thus a rough idle due to bad alternator.

96 Jeep w/5.2L V8 runs very rough and stalls

Have you done the cycle key test to see if any trouble codes come up ? Turn key to on (not start) then off, then on, then off, then on, and leave in on position. Have a pen and paper ready to retrieve code numbers. "Check engine" light will flash . You'll get a number of flashes if any codes, and a pause in between each number. For example: flash,flash,pause,flash,flash will be code 22.
3 flashes, pause , then 3 more flashes, is code 33 etc. It will always be 2 digit number, with a pause in between. When you get 5 flashes,pause and 5 more, that is code 55 which means end of message.(or end of codes). Get back to me with those codes and lets go from there, as it will make it much easier to pinpoint problem, if codes are there, and much cheaper and quicker in long run.

Check engine light is on, motor runs rough, sometimes stalls

Go to Advance or Auto Zone and have them run an obd scan on it and it will pin point why your light is on and could solve your problem. This is often done for free.
