Ok sorry for delay. I have changed timing belt and water pump ,changed o2 sensors, exhaust system ,cam shaft and crank shaft sensors,plus tighten belts. I have also cleaned as much as I can the throttle body with out removing it. The car starts but when turning on it shuts of so I have to rev gas one time so it can stay on. Also I have check engine lights on codes are p0340 and p0400 . Please help thank you.
