its behind egr valve i need to knoww how to fix or bypass

you cannot hear any vibration from the front when you open the hood

Car sounded like popcorn popping but ran great with no check engine lights. We changed the waterpump, tested the altenator, and changed the balancer. After this the car did not make noise anymore but started stalling intermittently (say after 10miles)as if heating up and dying yet not heating up, with service engine soon light. The light said ignition module. The ignition module tested 20+ times and read good. Then once again read cam sensor. Changed cam sensor. Then once again light came on. Then changed all three coils. Still after 10 miles it stalls out and engine light on. We are chasing our tails and mechanics are helping us chase it. Any ideas from anyone out there???? Help, we are desperate. Last fall we changed the computer(brain), cam sensor and mass airflow sensor also. This car is killing me and its my only way of transportation.

It has happened 3 times in the last 2 months. It happens after the car has sat for 10min-3 hrs. It never happens first thing in the morning, after the car has sat for 10+hrs. It will eventually start, after sitting more time. We have added fuel additive to take out water and fully charged the battery to 100%

I have checked tie rod ends, engine and transmission mounts. The drive axles are not losing any grease and appear to be tight. The vibration goes away when you let up on the accelerator.

When i go over bumps or turn around corners i hearn clunking

i have a collant leak in the frount of my 2001 buick
i also see water pouring out i was told i need a
timing cover gasket . what does that have to do with the water coming out of the car

I have checked the cost of the part, and it is around $30.00. Wondering how labor intensive is it to fix. Also, it an intermittent problem, doesn't happen every time shifting from first to second, and doesn't happen at all once I get over 25 mph, if I do not repair immediately, will it cause additional problems or a breakdown?

We were driving down the road quite a ways and It was really running good. Than all of a sudden the dash lights went out and all the gauges drop to nothing. Would that be a from altenator going out or not hooked up right. Could it be a fuse anything feed back would be apperiated. Thanks

I was wondering what was the best way to go about it.

i need someone to please tell me where can i find this heater blower resistor switch at thanh you.

Neither power sliding door works with the remote or the console (door sounds like it is trying to unlock and engage, but will not do so on the passenger side, and it will do nothing on the drivers' side.) I am unable to open the passenger door at all by hand, and the drivers' side door opens with difficulty. I am unable to unlock or lock the passenger side door as well.
The "door ajar" buzzer is also constantly going off!
I would be happy to even have the doors simply work manually and without the power option.

After changing these things out, drove her about 5 miles after putting gas in her, she died! Had to wait about 20 minutes for her to cool down...then she fired right up and brought me home (was only a few blocks away).

no stop light or cruise controll

The van will start and then die. It is running very rough. I might be the fuel filter or the fuel pump. I figure I'll changed the cheaper one first to see if it will fix the problem.

please help
