My front passenger side wheel is completely out of alignment,making my car nearly impossible to drive.It started with mild shaking and handling issues but in about 24 hours I went to park it and noticed the wheel was completly turned outward while the other 3 tires remained straight. Thereafter, the car was very difficult to drive and its shaking terrible. Is this a axel, tie rod , or strut problem or is it all of the above? How much can I expect to pay to get it fixed?

Ditto, don't drive, get it towed to a shop for a complete inspection of the front end. Until an inspection is completed it's impossible to know what this is going to cost.
