You'll have to pay a diagnostic fee to most shops since we pay our technicians to perform the work. It's better to know exactly what the vehicle needs rather than throw a dozen parts at it. With a vehicle your age I would expect you to need a thermostat, hoses and possibly a radiator. The plastic tanks become brittle over time and will fail at the worse possible moment. Have you already replaced your timing belt and water pump?
I've seen this question before. You have to dry off all connections. Especially the wires. Is the P0301 still pending?
You need fuel spark and compression to light it off. Did you use a scan tool to clear the code?
Could be bad ballasts or just a ground. Take it back to the shop that replaced the bulbs originally.
It's only 1.2 hours so NO. You may have to disconnect some items for better clearance. Make sure you bleed the system with GM PS fluid after your done.
Vacuum leak in the air inlet boot, bad ground. You need to get under the hood and look for anything out of the ordinary. Coolant leaks on the intake manifold as well. GL
I want the code first. Lots of problems with battery acid destoying electrical connections under the battery box. We've repaired several of these at Dublin Auto Repair.
Reco's right. It's in the transmission. You need to have it diagnosed first to make sure it is just the sensor. The solenoid is in the transmission attached to the valvebody. Easily a 4 hour job for someone who knows how to replace it. What if it's not the solenoid and you damage the transmission? Maybe its a bad wire in the harness? All that time wasted... I own several shops and and hear this every week. Money's tight but some jobs are too difficult for the novice. Take it to a shop with the right tools.
P0700 is a generic transmission code. The P0715 is an input speed sensor which is internal. You'll need to take to a shop for more diagnosis. There is no cheap or quick fix here. GL
You need to check the ABS speed sensors at the wheels. When your ABS light is on you have a code stored in the computer. What was it? Dublin Auto Repair is one of my stores that could look at it.
