I just had it at a shop for four day and 3 of the days they were having trouble bleeding the brakes

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Buick?

98 Buick regal ls

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Regal yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes I'm trying to fix it but I haven't done nothing because it was at the shop

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

With all the codes I just listed is it worth the time to fix

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka-Moose).

  • THE TIME I AM ONLINE, 7 days a week normally online around midday and then late evening until early morning.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website normally after my first reply. I complete calls where I feel it is a benefit.
  • UPLOADED LINKS I SEND, if I upload dropbox links, they will open on a home PC, often they fail on a work PC, on a phone use the box on the top right of your phone screen for direct download.

Are you asking for the diagnostic steps for each of these codes or something else?

Let me know if more help than this is needed.

You now will see a rating scale 1=bad to-5=excellent because I have posted a full or partial answer instead of an info request. When you rate I get a portion of the deposit you made, no rating means you still paid, but I earn nothing. My goal is understanding your question, and addressing it in full detail. In return, receiving a 5-star rating. Rating does not close the post or stop the conversation. Please keep in contact and reply as much as needed. Thanks, Chris
