If the sound disappears while applying the brakes, it is very likely the wear tabs on your brake pads. The pads may have worn into the rotors requiring their replacement too. You will not know until someone examines them during the brake inspection.

It is likely either a window switch, or the window track and regulator causing the issue. It might be the window motor, but most often it is either the regulator and window track causing the issue. You could try jumping the switch to see if it activates the motor, but my money is on the regulator/window needing replacement.

Check the brake switch on the brake pedal. Or the harness in rear of vehicle might have a problem.

The right side can be unlocked with the key, once opened, the left side can be opened. Mine, the left side requires me to push in slightly while ensuring the release handle is pulled to it's furthest point before it will unlatch. If the electrical contacts at the door frame are dirty, the door may not unlock when pushing the button up front thus requiring the key to be used in the rear door. If this is not the solution, the latch rods inside the door need adjusted which requires some mechanical expertise.

Po300 is a multiple random misfire there several things that cause this GM had an issue with the coil wire arcing to the transmission dipstick tube the new routing is to go over the plugs and remain on the inside of tube (old way was behind) USE a new wire. #2 dirty fuel (water contamination) As for the p1345 code this could be caused by ignition arcing inside Distributor Cap I would suggest replacing cap and rotor Clear codes This code will set once engine has gone over 1000 rpm's it updates every time to get spark advance correct if sets again distributor has moved this can be reset with a gm specific software scanner under camshaft offset specs 0 degrees to +4 max.

#1 first time ever the BEST suggestion Sent everyone away for the weekend unplug the stereo turn phone off. #2 take good pictures of both sides of the car engine compartment. borrow some fingernail polish several colors. drain coolant.disconnect battery Now lets start #1 remove air cleaner assemble there are 3 10mm nuts that hold it down unplug maf sensor and iat sensor and remove single wing nut on throttle body from drivers side remove main harness from bottom of fuse box 7mm bolt as you remove this harness taking it over the engine remove connectors and paint so you know where they go. Remove the four bolts that hold down a/c compressor and swing it out of the way DO NOT TAKE LINES OFF they will discharge the system From the front side take out the 3 upper bolts and 2 lower bolts and one behind power steering pump just slide it forward to get to the front intake bolt . remove upper radiator hose and heater and bypass hoses. remove alternator. remove bracket that alt sits on a hidden bolt behind tensioner so remove it first. now unscrew outer throttle cable this one is the cruise control and remove inner cable but holding throttle plate open with hand in bore it has a round lead ball on it. take mounting brackets off 3 nuts and 1 stud remember how this goes together. now remove rear mount holder and place them over master cylinder area.remove EGR pipe in front of manifold 7/8 wrench in the center where you removed the injector wiring connector rectangular plug there are to 8mm nuts that hold down the fuel lines remove nuts and retainer plate DO NOT remove lines yet follow those lines back and remove both lines 16mm nuts and in the center a 10mm bolt now remove lines as a assemble. Now you can see the flat distributor cap remove cap 20 torx with cap off rotate engine so rotor points at twelve straight towards radiator. Beer break After leaving ten cans all over yard remove distributor hold down bolt THIS PART IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE THERE IS NOT TIMING ADJUSTMENT FOR THIS ENGINE. as the distib come up the shaft rotates place a dot of polish to index the installation. now remove the intake bolts 8 bolts 13mm with slight pressure under a corner it should pop up for removal. Now jack up and support car remove the 3 15 mm nuts or 9/16 off each manifold get flanges clear drop back down now remove spark plugs then exhaust manifold bolts 6 per side 15mm If you can get the exhaust manifolds out great most of the time they don't . remove valve covers DO NOT REMOVE ROCKER ARMS remove the inner head bolts 9 bolts 5/8 heads (7 long bolt 2 short ) and the 8 lower bolts on the back of the head are the ground cables to the computer one per side some also has a braided cable and a fuel line retainer clip. once these are removed place a small piece of pipe in the intake port and pull they are on there but should come easy once lifted up a little remove push rods these can go in a pile they all are the same length. either send heads out for pressure test and surfacing or find that the gaskets are bad. Cleaning DO NOT SMOKE the intake valley and block head gasket surface must be clean of gasket material suggest kerosene and a soft bristle brush and sand paper use a tap 7/16 by 14 thread chase bolt holes so the bolts turn easy during installation. once this is done drain engine oil and install a new filter.. clean valve covers and intake manifold separate plastic top from bottom clean inside and replace gaskets torque to specs. Once heads are back clean all mounting holes for even torque. buy new head bolts they have thread sealer on them so coolant can't wick up bolts and leak into engine. now install the heads do not worry about the push rods yet . FOLLOW A REPAIR MANUEL FOR TORQUE SEQUENCE. once done install push rods and seat into lifter cup remove nut counting the turns to get rocker arm over rod and return to that setting they all will be different number of turns. Now reassemble in reverse order. Many other Questions e-mail jacobs.daniel@sbcglobal.net good luck

The timing is computer controlled but the camshaft phase can be checked with a scanner called camshaft sensor offset.

Better check oil pressure 1st to make sure hydraulic lifters have oil pressure to them. Or 1 or a few could be stuck.
