we are trying to track down cause of a lean O2 sensor,a bad maf is listed as one of the possible causes. does this even have one? I see them listed in the Chiltons as on only a 3.8 motor.

Hello, I have a 1990 Lumina APV van that periodically after running a little while, the Temp starts going halfway up and if I accelerate more heavily it will get really hot! The big problem while driving will happen when I come to a stop. The engine just goes dead sort of like if you can imagine driving a manual transmission car coming to a complete stop and not engaging the clutch....This is how my van feels when it starts heating up and I come to a stop...Then I will have to put it out of gear and crank it, But then when I put it back in gear it will go dead again... If anyone can help me figure out a fix for this I would be so thankful! Thanks!
I want to change it. The coolant fan runs sporatically at best. I want to connect it somewhere so that the ignition turns it on and off and with a separate relay. Where can I connect it?
We had the gas pump, gas filter, and battery replaced but won't start.
window motor was replaced by friend and came loss and swinging in door. I need to fix it myself
Leak terminates at bottom of oil filter adapter. But all mounting surfaces are flat and new gaskets. Possible leak originates in intake manifold or valve cover?
