The check engine light has been on sense we had it in the shop. We replaced the 02 senser and the plugs and the wires. Now the power stearing went out and we have no idea what it could be this time. Please help.

this is my first time in the snow with this 99 chevy cavalier 2.2l, and if my wheels spin in the snow and the trac light comes on the car loses power/ will not accellerate at all. is this whats suppose happens with these vehicle when trac control engages or is this a problem?

While driving i noticed smoke coming from my engine and pulled over and stoped the car immediately. It did NOT over heat or even reach the red. I later went back and refilled the coolant and moved the car. It still never overheated or even ran hot.

We replaced the radiator hose and then the radiator. But now my car wont start. The lights come on, turn signals and wipers all work but it makes no attempt to even turn over.

If i try to turn the key to the start position immediately the check engine, battery, and theft system lights stay on. If i wait for the dash light to go off then try to start it the check engine light stays on when turning the key to the start position. It makes no sounds or attempt to crank or turn over at all. (The battery is good and was just replaced about a month ago.)

I start the gas up then pull off I hear loud noise on the inside of the car, then the car jerk forward then start to give more speed and the noise on the inside goes away. when I stop at a stop sign or red light its still not there, once I push on the gas to go again the noise is there again and the car jerks forward again and the noise goes away again. this happens every time I stop and go and push on the gas. Can you tell me what is causing this to happen. I do wait and let the car warm up when its cold. I had a tune up done, oil change, new breaks put on, and new tires as well.
