In order to reset the check engine light which continues to come on after it has already been cleaned, etc. Failed Issue was: "A" Camshaft Position Actuator Circuit / Open. What do I do to fix this?
I was sitting in the drive-through and my check engine light came on why?
I had been driving at 65-70 mph for approx. 10-15mins then I got off the hwy and was driving at 30-35 for approx. 4 mins when the car jerked a little and warning bell sounded. The display on the dash said reduced engine power, approx. 1 mile later the traction control shut off and light came on with another display of service traction control, the car has no power when starting from a stop, as long as you are moving does ok but doesn't have any umph. (no passing gear, or noticeable acceleration) it will do 65-70 mph but you need 5 miles to get it there. Also when shifting in or out of drive there is a noticeable jerk. error code said evaporative emission system gross leak. I have changed the fuel cap but although car acted right for an hour or so dealership said this is only coincidence because a gas cap being loose wont cause any of those problems. what do I check next?
So I keep finding that the 2010 HHR has a power steering recall. I called the actual Chevy customers service number and they said I dont. My question is since I'm gonna have to pay for this out of my pocket how much will it cost? And does my car have a recall? I feel so unsafe driving my child and myself in my car.

My hhr reached 198º. At what temperature should I panic & shut the engine down?
My 2009 started driving like the engine was hesitating or shaky or like the rpms were fluctuating (it's hard to describe). We tried a tune up: new plugs, new cabin and engine filters, and oil change and filter, none of this helped. We did a scan and got these codes: $7E8:engine and $7EA and 'a camshaft position actuator/ open bank 1' message. (I know, not the usual codes that come up..most start with other letters) Check engine light has been on also. It happens all the time, although worse at times and barely at other times. Please help us. Hopefully it's something we can fix ourselves.
I have changed the intake and exhaust sensors already. After a while the light will go off and it will be okay for about 10 miles and then start clunking again and then shortly after the engine light will come on. I need help with this pile of junk as I have already put over 2000.00 into it and it is only half paid for. Nothing but a money pit, one thing after another!!!

I am selling it. The sunroof will not close electronically. I had it closed manually. When I sell it, I will either have it fixed or hopefully offer to subtract that from the asking price. Can you give an approximate cost from a very simple problem to something large such as replacing the motor?
I have done dozens of brake jobs on Chevrolets and my 2011 HHR rear brakes the hold down springs are so strong I can't remove them to replace the brake shoes. Is there a special tool for this?
