my engine light has been going on and off for a while now. when it is on it is
steady not flashing. i get it checked all the time at auto zone and it is
always the egr code. i have replaced the egr valve and cleaned it but still
keep getting the code.
my other problem is that when i start the car and try to push the button on the
shifter to take it out of park the button wont push and i cant get out of park.
i have to push the break over and over until the button will push in. i dont
think its the tranny because i dont have a problem once it is out of park and it
drives fine. please help!!!!
