Unhappy My Monte is sick

Okay.
So this past weekend has not been a good one for my 2000' Monte Carlo SS
-On friday one of my tires set off the low pressure light on the dash, after i filled all the tires up, the light didnt go away.(Still on)
-Sunday it was having problems turning over and would idle real low to the point where it would stall out.
-Today(Monday)- while going to school i noticed that when accelerating it seemed like my engine was skipping.(Rev bar would go up and down when trying to accelerate). On my way home to school i didnt have this problem.

Whats going on?
And one have any idea before i take it in?

As far as the tire pressure light goes, did you reset the monitor after airing up the tires?

did it seem to do that more when it wanted to shift..

I had a problem like that once.. It turned out that battery terminals were loose, try tightening them..

as far as the tire pressure.. Ya you need to reset it as it wont turn off till its reset.

As far as the "skipping" check your plug wires and connectors.

Now as far as the problems turning over, check the throttle body, lines and screws. Had a screw come off my TB which cause idle or TPS (can't remember which right now) to pop off (bad idle). Those are just 2 simple places I could check.

also check the air filter and air intake tube to see if there is nothing bloking air flow then i would check the wires and plugs. when was the last time there was a tune up been preformed on it. also check the simple things as well check the battery to see if there is no corosion leading to any wires and go from there.

Heres how to reset the tire monitor.

TIRE MON (Tire Inflation Monitor Reset)
This feature allows you to reset the tire pressure
monitor after checking all tire pressures. See Tires on
page 5-65. To clear the LOW TIRE PRESSURE
light from the instrument panel cluster and reset the low
tire pressure monitor, do the following:
1. Scroll, using the SEEK PSCAN up or down arrows,
until TIRE MON appears on the display.
2. Press the 1 PREV or 2 NEXT button to enter the
submenu. RESET will be displayed.
3. Press the TUNE DISP button to reset. A chime will
be heard to verify the new setting and DONE will
be displayed for one second.
The low tire pressure monitor is now reset. You can
either exit the programming mode by following the
instructions later in this section or program the next
feature available on your vehicle.

i have the same problem occasionally with the rpm needle bouncing. it usally happens when i slightly accelerate on the highway especially when im using cruise control and press the accel. button. it doesnt do it all the time but when it does its annoying because it stops my car from accelerating as well as it should which can be dissapointing at times.

Or the alternative would be to pull the headlight **** out (all the way - both clicks) and push in. I believe it's 3 times, maybe 5. But you'll hear a chime and you'll know it's reset.
