I had a similar experience with my 1987 Chevy Celebrity. In my car's case I replaced the ignition module and the crankshaft position sensor. Between the two the problem seems to be fixed.

How do you replace the radio in a 1984 Chevy Celebrity?

I actually own a 1984 Chevy celebrity and it took me 8 hours to take the dash apart, install the radio and put it back together again. Then, my radio stopped working after 2 weeks. If you want to take on this task, you will need to start by removing the screws from inside of the glove box. My advice: just don't. If you are half as stubborn as me, you will not listen, but you have been warned.

Where is the ignition and distributor located on a 1990 Chevy Celebrity?

The 1990 Chevy Celebrity engine is distributorless, the ignition is handled by a combination of the engine control module(computer) and the ignition control module. You did not mention which engine the car has. If your car has the 4 cylinder engine the ignition control module is below the intake manifold at the rear of the engine. You can follow the spark plug wires to it. The coils are mounted to the ignition control module. If your car has the V6 the ignition control module is near the starter and again you can follow the spark plug wires to it. Again the coils are mounted to the ignition control module.

Why would a new battery on a Chevy Celebrity show to be charging yet you cannot unhook the battery terminals as if it was not charging?

if it stalls when you remove positive battery terminal then your alternator is bad Yes, it could be the alternator, but I have an 89 Celebrity and when I first got it we had the same problem and would die out every few minutes and need a boost. We changed the alternator, did not help. We bought a Duralast Gold battery from Auto Zone which helped a little but did not fix the problem. We then took the car to an alternator repair shop called Gabby's in Knoxville TN and they replaced a large fuse under the dashboard and I never had the problem again. Cost me $5.00.

88 Chevy Celebrity oil got changed by lil brother but oil pan drain plug got stripped bad but still works. Is this a long term problem later down the road?

You won't really know until you change the oil again. There is a chance that it will not go back in and seal another time. At one time there were oversize drain plugs that were designed to fix this problem, I do not know if they are still available. Good luck!!
