readout shows no oil pressure at cold start,drive about 3 miles & it starts reading up & down.then it reads 130#&is ok until you stop & engine cools down.

The car was running down the road began to run rough and stopped. The car has low miles (36K). Tried to restart cranked but would not start. Removed plugs and show spark, smell gas when testing for spark with plug removed. No engine codes present with an ODB meter. Fuel pump sounds like it is priming. low oil warning came on initially but goes away and oil level is fine (supposedly there is a fuel cutoff associated with a low oil level warning). Before I replace the oil sensor, I would appreciate any and all suggestions. Thanks in advance.

The engine cut off always occur about 3 minutes after starting the car- driving or on idle. It also happens intermittently while driving but at longer intervals. Re starting the car is never a problem though.

The car was broken into and the person broke the left side of the collum and broke the linkage to start the car. I took out the old collum and put in a collum I got at a wreaking yard. I installed the new collum and then I took out the key switch from the old colum and put it in the new colum. The dash warning lights are on before I put the key in the lock and start the engine. When I turn off the car the engine does not stop. I have to disconnect the battery to stop the car. I would like to find out what I did wrong.

Coolant Flush?

Seems to be a drain on the battery when the car is parked overnight. New battery installed and checked.

I'm trying to remove the front stuts on my 02 LeSabre. The top bolts appear to screw into a nut that is is round and flat. I have no way to hold the nut firmly as I turn the bolt and the whole assembly turns. Is there a special tool for gripping this nut and if so, how would I get it.

I have a 3800 v6 we have done a compression test all cylinders are at 150 psi. cooling system pressure check holds 18lb. no oil in coolent or coolent in oil. engine runs smooth, and starts easy. Runs well and not overheating running at normal temp. cooling fans working. How ever the exhaust manifolds get very hot. much hotter then the engine and when you hold the gas to about 2000rpm they turn cherry red. starts close to the heads and moves down the exhaust. Any one ever have this problem?
