My sister has a 98 STS and has had trouble with it dying on her. She took it to a mechanic and was told it's a bad EGR valve and was gonna cost her $500 to fix. I found the part for $150 and my son and I are going to attempt to change it ourselves. Do we need to reset the computer after the new valve is installed and if so, how do we do that?

Hello Experts, 1999 Chrysler Sebring LXi v6 2.5L. Car had a hard time starting. It would turn over but not start. When it did start, it would run and idle fine for about 4 minutes and then die. I've recently replaced the fuel filter and crankshaft position sensor. Now the car starts up every time but is running very rough. I've taken it for a drive and no matter what speed I get up to, it never stops running rough? Does the computer need to be reset?

1995 Cadillac Seville (or Deville--I'm not sure which, it belongs to my dad) wasn't started for awhile and wouldn't start. We put battery charger on it and then it started, but suddenly all the lights flashed and it went dead again. I think the computer needs to be reset, but have no idea how. Are we supposed to put a code in?? The car manual doesn't seem to address problem.

I disconnected the battery to try to reset the computer and when I went to reconnect the battery the fan came back on. So I have been told its the relay switch. Now my question is how hard is this to replace by a female that is not real mechanically inclined. I know I need to remove the airfilter housing and that the relay is on the side wall of the car but thats about it for my knowledge of this.. I
