The car was made in California, but the guy put in a non-California engine. I put new spark plugs, hoses, filters, and everything else I could touch on it. It surges on acceleration, only going up to 20rpm

Driving at relatively low speed, I was in the front passenger seat when suddenly there was a loud grinding sound seemingly from the front end and it felt like weight shifted from the center toward the outside under my feet. My dad checked the U-joints and axle on both sides including the axle bearings but cannot locate the issue. Now on the rare occasion that he does drive the car the grinding continues worse when starting from a full stop, and the front end feels completely instable.

left work it started just fine got hone went to leave nothing dash lights come on unless you take something to the starter an it will start then

This has occurred several times during the last month. The starter motor is relatively new; less than 2 years old.
The car has started every time this has happened. When I try it again, starts normal.

the speedometer works. tack, odometer & trip meter don't work. what would make this happen? thought they were all connected.
it doesn't work all the time.

The battery wouldn't charge while running. Saw sparks in alternator while running. Replaced alternator. Replaced battery. Did ok for a short time then battery went dead while car sat.
