2005 Chevy Monte Carlo.
My 2005 Monte Carlo engine light keeps coming on after I've change all wires and plugs,it flutters and cuts off when I stop.what can I do?

2000 CHEVY MONTE CARLO 3800. SERVICE ENGINE SOON. A SCAN FOUND NO CODES.  ENGINE WAS CLEANED, FRONT HUB ASSEMBLES WERE CHANGED. THE SERVICE ENGINE SOON LIGHT IS ON, BUT THERE ARE NO CODES SHOWING UP ON THE SCAN TOOL. I AM THINKING THIS IS THE EMISSIONS OR MAINTENANCE  REMINDER TO HAVE THE ROUTINE SERVICE DONE. HOW TO RESET?

Check engine light. Scanned code P0172 - rich. Replaced first o2 sensor. What else can the problem be if the o2 sensor graph is still dropping and raising then staying low .

2006 Chevy Monte Carlo 3.5 V6. Coolant leak: coolant only leaks when engine is cold, after it warms up it stops.  It looks like it leaks from the side of the engine right around the belt.  Coolant shoots up off the belt.  I don't know could it be the water pump, head gasket, thermostat or something else.  Do you have any clue where the leak is coming from?  Do you guys see this problem a lot in Chevy vehicles and how much would it cost to fix it?
