After checking we got a coding from the machine check that says..P0440.

Need to see the timing marks trying to put chain in

I have a 1997 Buick skylark and I'm having problems figuring out why do my car shuts down after it runs for a's not the alternator I got it tested twice..then when my car shuts down I get a boost off with the booster cables it crank right up then when I take the cables off the car shut down and go dead again it's something not keeping my battery charged do u have any clue whats the problem

When I turn my key to on position no dash act like it want to crank but don't catch turns right back off I put new fuel filter on it the starter is good so what do I need to do next to save money from buying parts I don't need

The horn honks all the time if the fuse is in.

I just had my transmission's fluid flushed and filter changed. Now it doesn't shift up to overdrive. The fluid level and color was fine before the fluid change, the pan gasket a small slow leak. Before the fluid change it would shift into overdrive but recently it would hesitate shifting from 2nd to 3rd. Shifted into overdrive normally. The car has 346K miles on it. I had the torque converter replaced (used) 200K miles ago.

Thanks in advance!


occasionally, it wants to stall unless more pressure is applied to the accelerator (sounds like the exhaust is getting louder as a result) The check engine light stays on and will begin to flash if going up hill. The vehicle is going through fuel at a very fast pace

I keep coming up with a egr value code where is it located at

The right signal and brake light will work again if I pull the light assembly out of place, but they stop working once i move the car.
