The positive battery terminal has a separate heavy wire that goes to the starter. Remove this cable from the battery, clean it and re-install. Just a dirty connection.

  3. For SOHC engines, remove the air cleaner inlet tube.
  4. For SOHC engines, detach the electrical connectors from the engine coolant sensor and the camshaft position sensor.
  5. For DOHC engines, unplug the electrical connector from the camshaft position sensor.
  6. For SOHC engines, remove the brake booster hose and the electrical connectors form the holders on the end of the cylinder head cover.
  7. Unfasten the camshaft position sensor mounting screws, then remove the sensor.

Sounds like a dead battery. Lots of times the colder the weather gets, the less "Cranking amps" the battery has to put out.. Try jump starting the car, if that works, check your alternator / battery. (you can get this tested for free at most auto part stores... here in maine atleast..)
If your car is turning over quickly, not doing a clicking sound when your try starting, or a slow start sound, it could be a fuel or electrical issue. I would need more details.. (Mainly if you knew if it was battery related or not.)
Good Luck!

There is a "C" clip that holds it in there. Put your pry bar on the fat part of the halfshaft (axle) and give it a few smacks with a hammer. These jolts should knock it loose to be able to remove it. If you cant get room to hit it with a hammer you will have to use a pry bar and just keep working at it on both sides.

the most likely cause of this code is the MAF sensor or air mass sensor "same thing" this regulates the air to fuel mixture, worth a mention you can try and clean this sensor with carb cleaner and this often cures the fault.

if it is the trans pan is what you are talking about then it is sealed by rtv silicone but you should check if it is the cooler lines leaking down to the pan and looking like the pan there is also a solenoid pack on some vehicles that leaks down as well.

It is located on the left end of the cylinder head, next to and in front of the CMP sensor. There is no easy way to access this sensor. The Haynes Manual says to remove the CMP sensor to access this. To remove it with a socket you have to remove the battery and battery tray. When you put the new sensor in make sure you wrap the threads with Teflon Tape to help prevent leaks.
