What causes the car to idol and die've.been.smelling.a.strong.odor.of.gas.too.I'

I have a 1996 Buick Park Avenue Ultra 3.8 Liter. The car has been missing and the Check engine light is staying on now for a couple of months. I had the car checked and was first told to use a Mass airflow sensor cleaner on it. After I used the spray,the symptoms stopped for 1 day and then returned. When I had the car checked I was given 2 code numbers that it came up with. Code # 102 and 171. I was told I should replace the Mass Air Flow Sensor. With the 2 different codes does that mean 2 different sensors? Are the sensors easy to replace? Thanks

fan is blowing but cold air only on drivers side and hot air on passenger side and rear vents


Every time it gets hot

Can't be brakes because it happens while idling. She can't afford to have them guess. It really is a nice car.

I have replaced spark plugs and wires, as well as coil pack and my car is still shaking whenever I'm at a stop sign or light, what could be the problem? Do I need to replace the module as well?

just got a new supercharge but rpmx wont pick up an neither will the car. its like its loosing air. when i press the gas down it wont even do anything unless i barely press it and hold it steady.. anybody know whats wrong?

Happens occasionaly with no warning when starting from a dead stop.

have 2 PARK AVE's..both 02 modl yrs. each has experienced same issue in past yr where the UNLOCK MECHANISM disengages and prevents door access in or out. 1 happened on driver side dr, other on passenger side. sometimes it operates fine. no consistency to occurrance regardless of hot or cold outside temps. where's part located and how is it fixed?

happens after car is warm and often during transition from brake pedal application (cornering or startup after traffic light stop) to slow acceleration up to about 1250 rpm. above that car shifts fine and handles hwy driving normally. replaced idle control valve, air intake sensor, air filter and cleaned MAF sensor. front end car accident 8 mos ago required coil pack wiring splice kit. coil pk was intact. throws codes P0742 torq conv sol, P1811 max adapt & long shift ???, & P1122 TPS sensor-circuit short/low voltg and P0440 EVAP sys fault

Changed the fuel filter and it ran well for half an hour now it won't even start.

All my LED readouts are wrong always, such as my gas amount gauge, mileage left, gas used etc. My speedometer needle keeps pinning to zero and my radio plays after the door is opened when the car is off. I am replacing my master window switch so I hope that problem will be fixed.

the air flow only comes out defrost vent at the windshield or the floor

Last week I repaired the resistors for the vacuum florescent display and this after noon it started.

Doors won't open from the inside or outside right side of car
