Default running bad and tring to stall & fuel light question

Just did a thermostat,coolant,rad hoses,and air filter change .Ran great for a couple of days now the car is running bad.
Tries to stall when gas pedal is applied (rpm dye down, but does not stall, no power till i pump the pedal, then it comes back (rpms), then rpm are are bad at idle or while driving lots of hesitation).

spark plugs, pcv valve, gas filter are being changed tommorrow.
Anything else i should look at ?

Do not have a scanner for codes unless their is another way to get codes.

Plus my fuel light (on dash) use to work but now it does not. Checked bulb and good
Any ideas??

97 bonne se 3.8 no turbo

thanks

Sounds like an air lock? Did you try bleeding the system? There is a little pet-**** on top of the thermostat housing, crack and let the air out. Did you remove the fuel line too, if so check that you dont have an air lock there too.

Does your SES light come on for a few seconds when you turn the ignition on? It should self-test.

Bonnevilles didn't have the option of a Turbo. Some are supercharged.

Check all your dummy lights on powerup.
