On my Toyota Corolla 1993 automatic, my parking brake locks up and then I can't even remove the key. I can even feel the resistance when I put it into Park. It's not moving into Park easily and properly. I am 98% sure that it is a cable or plastic holding the cable that needs to be replaced. I can easily remove the console for the hand brake but the center console with the gear box seems to be a lot trickier.

It has no major accidents. But I'm worried major problems are about to occur, and I'm wondering whether I should just sell it now before the bottom falls out. What is the likelihood this car, compared to the average car, will run well for the next 50K miles with minimal expense?

How much should I pay for replacing a brake line that runs from master cylinder to a 3-way splitter? (About 3feet in length and has a triple loop on it).

I did replace the manual transmission on my 2003 Vw jetta 1.8l GLS
but now every day I use my vehicle I have to push the clutch like ten times before it work, are the Orings going out?, is there air on the lines? or where is the fluid container located at? this is the first jetta I ever had!!! fustrating!!!!

I called the Jeep dealership to get this question answered but they wanted a very large amount just to look at my Jeep.
I own a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee (My daughter drives it), 180000 miles, lifted 3 inches, I think). It WAS in great condition until my daughter broke up with her boyfriend and he vandalized it. He yanked out the head unit and cut all of the wires to get it out (the head unit). He also cut the wires to the power windows, none of them work. I still have headlights.
I took it to my garage and they said they could not give me an estimate because the wires had been cut in 24 different places in the vehicle and the repair was something they could not do.
Can someone please help me price out a TOTAL rewiring of the sound system throught the Jeep, (including to the speakers)?
Also the head unit panel was snapped in half to come off. How much to replace that particular piece? (The big plastic piece that covers the radio, heat, dashboard, etc.)
The entire drivers side interior door panel is missing and the plastic cover that covers the window, and lock/unlock buttons is broken off. How much for that?
The over head interior light is missing (and cut). Its the light that turns on when you open the door to get in). How much will that be?
And finally, (And I am not sure why exactly) but the fabric that would typically cover the entire ceiling was torn off. How much would it cost for me to fix that part?

I am so sorry for asking so many questions.
I have 7 children and cannot afford to pay several hundred dollars to get an estimate.
Yes, he did it in front of the entire staff at the service station. Yes, I did file a police report, and yes, I will make him repay me, but before I even put this in for repair, I kind of need to know what I am dealing with here.

Thank you sooooooo much for your time!!!

Also, what kinds of noises does a worn CV axle make, I only hear noises when I am pulling up into my driveway, otherwise it drives ok. They found the problem at the outer CV joint where there was grease spewing out, I was able to stop the leak using a sealant for the moment.

My local dealership charged me seemingly an arm and a leg for a routine, non-mechanical repair intermediate service. I plan to get back in touch as I was in a hurry today. Service included general oil change+filter; tire balancing; full hose/brake inspection; and cabin air filter replacement (separate charge). But this hardly seems like it should have totalled close to that cost, even at dealership retail. It was $179 + $79 (cabin filter). Thank you for any help.
