There is no heat in the car when I am standing still just when the car is moving. What do you think is the problem?

I can't find my temp. gauge anywhere on my dashboard display. Can someone help me out.

Took to Mercedes friend. Said possible chain wear.
The guide? Only on one side. Used heatmeter, one side warmer by 20 degrees. Will make noise when car is running and will make noise as I speed up.

After a long trip, the Ford emblem--the "grille badge," I believe it is called, is badly damaged. Most of the blue is gone, as if rocks damaged it. Can I replace just the badge? Does it stick on by itself? Can I do this alone, or do I have to rely on a dealership's exorbitant rates? I know this is no mechanical problem, and the car is amazing, but I do not like to see this cosmetic flaw every time I walk out in the morning. Advice?

it also has a hard time going past 60 mph and issues with shifting

I've been having problems with stuttering and loud popping when I change gears as if there is something wrong with the exhaust or O2 sensors. I put off having this fixed. Now my stick is sticking and won't go into gear no matter how much I push on the clutch. This happens on and off. I haven't heard the gears grinding much until now I have to almost punch it into gear. 1st and reverse are the hardest. I'm afraid to drive it because I got stuck and had to start the car while already in gear to move the car. Is this a fluid problem?

When I cleared the codes, the car returned to normal, until it warmed up. start up nothing- turn off and restart works great for 200-300 feet. I think it is electrical or a bad sensor.
All the shops only know one word, rebuild, with no discussion.
Where do I find an honest trans mechanic? I changed the oil and filter and found the pan clean, no shavings or grindings. I just can't believe it needs and overhaul. If it was mechanical, I would have the same problem all the time, Is it the PCM? ISS? OSS? Could it be the computer? Wireing loom?HELP!
