Hello, dont mean to sound rude but double check to make sure your on the right screw. The screw should be towards the bottom of the oil panpossible at a slight angle to drain the oil. No special tools are needed normally a socket set will get the job done not exactly sure on the size. Try some locking pliers, lock it tight as possible around the screw and tap on the the handle with a hammer or somethin solid. I recently had the same proble with my oil pan screw thats how I got it off. Replace the screw once it comes off. Hope this is helpful.

Does the noise get louder or change tones when you change lanes (swerve back and forth on the road)? If so it is a hub bearing. If you suspect it being a tire rotating it from the front to ther rear should answer your question aswell.

If they are the replaceable kind, hold the strut assembly in a vise and remove the cap at the top of the tube by turning it with a large pair of channel locks. Remove the old cartridge, drop the new on in and replace the cap.

If only one brake locked up, (test by feeling heat), then it would be a caliper. If they all lock up, I would suspect a lack of freeplay in the pedal rod to power assist or rod from power assist to master cylinder.
But of course the ABS could also do it, but that is out of my league. You could disable ABS and see if it still happens.

Since this is an OBD II car no timing adjustments are required, the timing is controlled by the computer. You can check it if you like but you will not be able to adjust the timing.

urn on radio - the word SAFE will appear in the display. Press th P.SCAN and RBDS buttons simultaneously and hold them down until "1000" lights up in the display.Release buttons.Do not, under no circumtances, continue holding them down or press them once again. This will cause the radio to consider the number 1000 to be the input code.Use station buttons 1,2,3,and 4 to enter the code number on your Radio Card. Use the button 1 to enter the first number 2 for the second number 3 for the third number and 4 for the last number.Once you have entered the code and it shows on the display,press the P.SCAN and RBDS buttons down again simultaneously and hold them down until the word SAFE appears in the display.Release buttons.

Take a Voltmeter and check the Voltage to make sure that Battery is Fine. It is a Good Idea to have it Load Tested. Did you try to Jump Start It? If not, try it.

You could have a Bad Starter. Replace and check, if that could Fix the problem.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

how dark is your coolant look at the reservoir bottle if your coolant is real dark. there is a good chance that your heater core is plugged the coolant breaks down and causes the heater core to plug. If you raise your idle and the heat gets slightly better good chance it is that. also your water pump could also be failing hope this helps. good luck.
