problem just started

Ive been researching for 2 days now. It seems like the problem to my fustration of a vechile is either blown head gasket or crankshaft sensor. Sensor cost $30 and gasket cost $50. I do things myself but heard head gasket is a pain in the ass. Anyone have any tips

brakes has air in them it was blead

Thought it was fuel filter but car still stalls. Got several lights on dash. Low coolant theft seat belt oil batt abs brake and airbag.

That would get in my 2 door skylark. It's a power window

I checked fuses none blown and wiring that I thought it would be but nothing . Headlights work and brake lights work any ideas

The horn honks all the time if the fuse is in.

Driver side window is acting up. Need to get the panel off.

I have changed the starter, coil, alternator, plugs and wires. I have also replaced the ignition switch and turn signal switch.
I have not changed the points, nor checked the timing, but could those two things be the problem?
I had to select the wrong year because my year wasn't available.

what is code 51

Just replaced head gaskets and intake gaskets loss of power and no throttle responds and no overdrive

Engine starts and stalls occasionally all instrument lights stay on even when the car does start and runs. The engine is also sluggish and when you find the right throttle position in takes off. I changed the the throttle position sensor and didn't help. Car doesn't have a chip in the key. Is the engine stall problem the instrument cluster, theft system or sensor failure ?
