I posted this issue before and now there's a new one...

A couple weeks ago, I posted on here about a buzzing noise and then it wound up being a bigger issue... it was the starter. I had it replaced and in it's first week, the starter was not working properly and then did the same thing: Everything lit up and no start. So I brought it back to the mechanic since it was under warranty and said it was just connected improperly, honored the warranty and fixed it. Now it's a week later, and the car is making a slight grinding noise after the start up but runs smoothly. This just started today and the fix is only 1 week old after it's last trip. Could it be he just tightened it too much, if such a thing? or is it something else? I think it might be the battery but I'm hoping it's not the starter (again) or something bigger...

I have an odd difficult problem.

As of late, the car has been difficult to start. When I turn the key in the ignition, the car sputters (the same sound that when your car is on and you turn the key further in the ignition) and sometimes will not start, but everything lights up. Sometimes it will take 10 minutes of doing this before the car starts. Sometimes there's no wait at all. Key will turn all the way, sometimes with just the sputtering and then starting, sometimes just the sputtering and other times just starts right away. When it start, there's no delay or slow clicking noise at all.

I'll be bringing this to the dealer on Wednesday for an airbag recall and will be mentioning the problem (obviously), but i was curious if anyone else has encountered this problem or is familar with this, and if so, if anyone knows what kind of ballpark I'm looking at to get this fixed. Thanks!

Failed 3 times in 6 months. Each time it is inspected, it is full of water and shorting the electrical connections. The last time, it was completely replaced with a new valve instead of just dried out. No flooding of the car or deep water traversed during the time listed or before.

2631 is Front Air/Fuel Ratio Sensor Bank 2 Sensor 1 Circuit High Voltage. Can this be the cause of code 0506 Idle Air Control System RPM Lower Than Expected?

My chain jumped time. The mechanic is telling me he can't get the bolt off the crank- n if it breaks I need a new motor... I've been told the crank shouldn't have anything to do with the chain... Idk what to do... What should expect to pay to have it moved to a shop?

and possible control arm?
