I had the new altenator checked and it was good but it was not charging the battery. If it is not the alt or the battery what could be causing this to happen

My car is a 2008 ive only had this car for 3years....back in 2013 there was a recall on my shift cable i took it to the dealership where they said they fixed it (remind you its been the same shift cable in the car since 2008 when the car was made) Last week my shift cable went out....what i dont understand is if they fixed it the 1st time quote on quote then why 2years later the "NEW SHIFT CABLE" goes out in that case i should have kept the same one that was in the car to start from 2008-2013....i paid $216.00 to get my car fixed and they are telling me that i cant get my money back because they quote on quote fixed the problem in 2013 when i took it in for a recall....So my question is: Did anybody take there car in for a recall for the Shift cable and it still wasnt working or went out?

My uncle has a 1995 Mercury Cougar xr7 with a V8 engine... recently shes been stalling out on us and refusing to start...Sometimes when we stop to turn she wont accelerate, we have hooked the car up to a computer that is supposed to diagnose the problem and it showed that it was the mass airflow sensor so we replaced it, then it showed that the EGR sensor was the problem so we replaced that but shes only gotten worse and we can't figure out what the problem is....Has anyone else suffered these problems?

Goes from ambient (85) to peg gauge (230+) in < 5 min idling. Infrared thermometer reads under 160 on heads (header manifolds barely 210). Replaced pump, stat, hoses, belts and temp switch (85,000 mi) for small leak at pump rotor seal which precipitated overheating trouble. Engine shuts off when guage hits 235. No other apparent problems, no trouble codes logged. Runs perfect otherwise. Repeatable over and over. All stock. Private use 1 driver vehicle. Computer issue? Help appreciated.

I have charged the car battery and the trunk will still not open with the key, or the fob. Changed the battery in the key fob, with still no success.

This is the nicest newest car I've had. I am used to using a lighter to heat the key if the locks are frozen so the remote or the key won't open it. Is it safe to do so with this vehicle too?

Can I use just any windshield washer fluid with this vehicle like I would with any other car?

How many cold cranking amps is enough for this car to ensure the best possible start reliability? Do they make like 900 and 1000 CCA batteries for this vehicle?

For this winter, how badly do I need to move to winter tires (from all weather tires)?
