replace sencors and cap and relayed
Stopped working for months now.
2nd time cost me 300.00 at dealer. Now have 78000 miles, and warning lights come on intermittently, sometimes 2 or 3 times a day. Not sure what to do...notified dealer at last oil change, but could find no EVIDENCE of malfunction, so nothing done. They also refused to correct problem under warranty. The car has 100,000 mile powertrain warranty still effective. Is it normal to have failures on the throttle body every 35-40000 miles???
can not get to the plugs in the back? Is there a special tool to use?
added a fuel additive, changed o2 sensors, cleaned mass air flow sensors, runs really smooth except at start
Changed oil 3 weeks ago. Replaced the oil pressure sensor.
car is running well-starts good
When I am at a stop and I start from a stop it like hits hard or like a little jerk or slip not sure but only from a complete stop and not always

Too old of a car too purchase? The car appears to be in mint condition except I noticed some rust on each side of the front seats the frame or rods in which the seat slides or powers up and down forward or backwards. Should I be concerned with this issue? Really like the car be seems as if it will be expensive to keep the maintenance. It would be a car driven daily to work and other daily activities.
Please provide engine diagram.

The outside temp reads -38 therefore the a/c will not work. We have changed the ambient temp sensor but that didn't help. Any suggestions would be helpful. It only does this when u idle for a period of ftime or after u drive for a while & kill the engine to run into the store & when u restart it it says -38.

there are several issues appearing at once HELP
At 65k, I had a transmission torque converter failure. Symptoms were shuddering / surging during particular types of acceleration. At first the dealership "could not reproduce" the shuddering symptoms. Within days, a warranty repair necessitated by a complete transmission failure. Now at 81k miles, the symptoms have returned. The dealership diagnoses a "mass air flow sensor" failure that is not covered by my 100k power train warranty. How can I be sure I'm not again dealing with a torque converter failure? What can I do to force the dealership to confirm their diagnosis? My power train warranty time expires in 1 month.
I recently had extensive repairs, pump, distributor, etc.

MY CAR JUMPS EVER SO OFTEN.. WHY IS IT JUMPING AND HOW MUCH DOES IT USUALLY COST FOR THESE TRACTION CONTROL SYSTEMS?
had hard starting problem. now it wont start. applying power to test terminal for a couple seconds powers up fuel pump, then car will start. sometimes idle speed is erratic. does the same with spare PCM. no codes. ignition functions fine. that was all replaced about a year ago.
