My info says you have to remove front cover. The front cover is on the same end as accessory belt. Rockauto showed an oil pump repair kit for your vehicle. I can only tell you what my database shows.

Could be an automatic choke that causes it to rev up. Traction control is probably a faulty relay

It appears that you do not have the timing correct on the camshaft/s and the crankshaft. The intake or exhaust valves are hitting the pistons when you turn the engine over. You need to make sure that the marks are exactly correct. NOW, for the big question,,,,,,, Was the chain broken? Was the engine running when it broke? I have seen this myself and repaired one, This will likely bend 2 exhaust and 2 intake valves. Good luck.

Could be anything but based on experience the probability points to the self cancelling switching in the motor gearbox.

Checking Google, which knows most faults, you are the only person to have this problem. Two things spring to mind.

Someone has mis-wired something between lights and the Ignition/Park interlock switch.

The lighting is controlled by a Body Control Module and needs reprogramming by a dealer.

Do you notice that this happens after a common pattern. For instance after you have driven for a long period of time or only when you are accelerating faster than normal like peeling out?

2004 Chevrolet... | Answered on Nov 19, 2017

yes that could be the problem. try this putt your key in to the lock and turn it to unlock it , check to see if latch is open ,while still holding the key in the unlock position close the trunk and relock it with the key while pushing down on the hood at the same time. replace the lock when you can .there is no quick fix for this unless u use a bungee cord for it .

Can be bad plug, bad wire, bad injector, a bad valve, or bad vacuum leak. Read the misfire section in the middle of the page at link below.

This is a common problem across a spectrum of different makes and models concerning ignition modules.

The main cause of these failures is conductive HEAT transfer. I am in the process of experimenting with a small block Chevy K1500 that is consuming ignition mods on a regular basis.

If the other ignition system components are good, including the spark plugs and spark plug leads, coil, cap, rotor, pick up..which in my case, are all new...I am left searching for my own solutions, dealers and parts suppliers are clueless.

I have elevated the ignition mod off of the distributor base plate with plastic washers to reduce heat conduction. The fasteners that secure the ignition module to the base plate also ground it.. so make sure they are clean and secure. This is a direct opposite solution to the factory paste used to provide heat dissipation from the ignition mod

So far so good in the Chevy experiment but time will tell. I am also installing accessory cooling fans to quickly remove trapped heat under the hood. As these failures occur during the summer or winter I may have to rig up a specific system to directly cool the distributor. Pretty sad when an owner has to resort to the school of Jerry Rigged to correct an obvious manufactures problem.

Another option?:
