My car was running fine except a weird noise, like a faint tick last few weeks.. today the car started making a click/clack noise.. it seemed to be timed while idling. 2,3,4,5,click,clack .. 2,3,4,5,click,clack etc.. pulled it into garage and it immediately stalled. did some reading and replace the Camshaft Positioning sensor. But now the car wont start.It cranks but wont turn over and start. It seems like its not getting fuel to system but the battery is also reading FAIL on my neighbors reader. Tried jumping it and it read 13.75V and when we would try to start it would drop to 11.5V... also It has been giving a "low flow EGR" code. I removed the EGR and cleaned it thouroughly, just haven't replaced becuase for some reason its $375 for my car.. PLZ SOMEONE HELP ME!! Im a corrections officer and drive 50miles to work and 50 miles home, this car is my life and I need it to feed my children and wife
It will not start. When you turn the key, you hear cranking but it just wont start up anymore cheek for a code but im not getting any bad code has a new alternator new battery i cheek the star motor is good i was thinking it is a bad crankshaft sensor but the car cranks so i don't now was wrong and has a new fuel pump to please help me
Husband says need to pull crankshaft.but behind that vs there a belt / or chain from diagram.What is it called
I changed a very noisy ps pump and the noise is gone, but the steering is still hard to turn. It is very possible the owner drove with very low fluid and topped it off with power steering fluid with stop leak. Bummer...

Bleeding bubbles yelded very little improvement to the turning. However I was not able to get rid of all bubbles.

Could there be some damage in the rack and pinion?
Car door still opens and frame is not damaged. Some paint chipped off and scratches
checked plugs and wires, coil, coil module, cam sensor. Any ideals what to check next
