I changed fuel filter and the throttle sensor and another part that is part of the throttle i cant think,what its called it sits over a vaccume but nothing seems to work what can be the problem

Trac light and check engine light have been coming on random. Idles fast. Trac light and engine light have been coming on when sitting at a light, sometimes when turning then goes out. the roads are dry. Idles rough when lights come on. Then lights go out and runs and idles great

in trying to turn over, car will not start. dull click lights, horn radio do come on is this a starter problem
just happened but there seems to have been a delay in starting or appeared not to have "catched" on several occassions the past year

I HAVE CHECKED THE OIL IT IS FINE. THE LITE STARTED COMING ON YESTERDAY ON MY WAY TO WORK. IT ONLY COMES ON WHEN I AM BRAKING OR AT A STOP. COULD IT BE THE SENSOR AND WHERE WOULD I FIND IT ON THE ENGINE?

Fluid was over full and I drained it. Fluid us red, not burned. What are possible problems.

car has been setting for awhiletrying to get it runing

Cavalier has 122 K miles on it. Well maintained. While trying to start the car after replacing rear fuel lines, the mechanic said fuel gage failed to tell him there was no fuel in the car. (I could have sworn there was at least 1/8 tank of gas when I brought it into the shop.) He says sensor is faulty.

After 1/2 tank of gas was put in the car, a second opinion mechanic says that (via computer measurement analysis) the sensor is working correctly.

The car is running very weak. It feels like if I don't keep my foot on the gas,it will immediately slow down. At first I thought it might be gear,but no since it can get to 60mph,but feels like it's straining.
The check engine light went on and has been on for a while now. At first I thought it was fluids but all checked out fine and no leaks.
I just failed inspection at motor vehicles and they took the time to show me the codes that showed up. They were P0404 and P0405 which is telling me (from this site) the EGR Valve Position Sensor or Valve may be to blame.
I'm wondering if I should just replace both the sensor and the valve? Would this be an easy enough job to do?

Replaced complete compreoor, checked hvac diodes, wiring

Standard transmission, will the shift solenoid be in the floor console like the automatic trans are? I believe it is wires that are broken as I have read on here that there are a lot of problems with this.

It happens every time i turn on the car. Sometimes a service car light will come on.

My car shakes when I'm stopped. Someone told me it was because the spark plugs.

I took my car to auto zone and they told me that it means i need to check the speed sensor circuit and that it has low voltage but where would i fine this and is this a easy fix? I have tried Googling everything about this car we just fix the Evap emissions leak. Right now my car idols really high at 1600 then some times it goes up to 2000 when stopped. Some one please help me

When the speakers were put in, only the wires connecting to the speaker were replaced, and since then my windsheild wipers dont work. Noticed it the other night, shut the car off and turned it back on and they worked again.was down pouring earlier today and still worked, then they stopped in the middle of my windsheild and havent worked since. Check my fuse and it was fine, if anyone has any answers or suggestions that would be awesome.
