how to time car after timing chain is off

is, what i think is some kind of short in the electrical system, or is it common to hook up a new battery, and see an arc, plus the battery goes dead, when car isn't cranked every few days. Any suggestions on how to determine whats wrong, and how to fix this?
THnaks, Eddie

It seems to stop ok but the light is on all the time. I have had the diff cover off and found chunks of metal in the bottom of the housing. There are no strange noises coming from the diff.











durable "6 inch flex hose with clamps on each side so the fluid will reach the windsheild. What size diameter hose do I need, what material for hose and whether plastic or metal ties/clamps to hold. (Tech I worked for once fixed it once this way.) broken hose -bridged between brake of hose for windshield fluid.

2nd question, how do I safely tighten positive battery cable, it keeps loosening. I have an alarm, someone dropped the battery AMP down a grade than shown for this car. Could this be causing it or bad cables? Everything went out on my car but the breaks worked. Hazard lights didn't since the positive battery cable popped off. Middle of three lane road and was worried I was going to get run over with no lights flashing while I popped my hood and noticed this popped off. 3rd answer with this, was breaking, jumping out and popping the hood the best I could do under that circumstance (if it ever happens again) - no break or flashing hazard lights can have someone rear end you and your run over by your own car. Was scary.

Had code P0401. Cleaned carbon out of passageway from EGR to throttle body (intake) account insufficient flow. Do I need to clear the check engine light or will it go out on its own? I need to get the car smogged.

while driving it just died when service engine came on and lights didn't deam and now all it does is turn over kindof fast and doesn't start

wipers do not return to the rest position the intermitant option is out of time

Just recently I have noticed a musty smell when getting into my car. Also, no matter what the temp. of the weather, I would have alot of moisture on all of the windows from the inside. I know that whatever it is, it has happened recently. I started noticing the smell and the moisture inside the vehicle just a few weeks ago. I have checked all the window and door seals and they are all fine. What could possibly be the reason for this, what do I need to do/have checked out?

In less than 3 months I have had a service engine light with codes for both front O2 sensors and both cat converters. The O2 sensors went out first, one at a time, then the front cat converter, now the rear cat converter. I only run premium BP fuel. I think there must be a underlying problem. I am also beginning to smell a oh so slight burning odor and slight ticking at idle. It all been under warranty as the vehicle on has 28K miles. The car is garage kept and taken care of. Ideas to take to the dealership would be appreciated.

I was told you need to take the water pump out. If you have any info that'll help me out please respond back (urgent)

when you turn wipers off they stop where they are

Is there a $500 limit or a $1,000 limit on how much I have to spend on smog repairs or is there no maximum amount that I might be required to pay to get the car to pass the smog test. Its been a good car and has passed the last several years with no problems. This time the NO (PPM) numbers were too high. I dont trust the smog repair shops. Im afraid the shops will sell me more than what is needed.
