At times I have to start it 2-3 times before it will stay on. At times as it is slowing up on my and I press the gas it will jump and go real fast. I have had a complete tune-up, the idle control sensor, and another idle system part replaced as well as a hose replace that had a hole in it. It still has the symptoms I have mentioned.What else could be the problem

Alternator quits charging after 4000 to 6000 miles

sometimes car accelerates or bogs when driving

how can i lift the window manually, i have took the door panel off but i can't figure out how to raise the window

I took my 2008 Hyundai Sonata with 56,000 miles on it into the dealer to have the air conditioning unit looked at because it blows warm air -- basically when I'm driving slower around town, but it blows cold air just fine when I'm driving faaster down the freeway. They said the air compressor needs to be replaced to the tune of about $1,000.

My boyfriend wants me to just try recharging it instead. He knows nothing about cars -- is this something a novice can do? And, will this possible "fix" work actually for awhile, or will it make things worse? -- should I just bite the bullet and get the thing replaced?

Dealer fixed it last October and "unkinked" the ac hose and put it back in place. Problem has reoccurred. Is this a common problem with Toyota cars? Never had this problem with any other car! Is this going to happen every year at the cost of $50 each time?
