The car idles high with surges and then Boggs down below 1000rpm. It idles at below or just at 1000. When taking off it rev high and then Damn near stall. If you stop it will stall but keeping the motor art 1100 rpm keeps it from dieing out completely.

It started about a week ago. It sporadically blew blue smoke, small amounts when going at slow speeds, stopped for a few days, then started a couple days ago again; last night it's doing it while idling. Again, very small amounts. No engine lights. Either piston rings, valve stem guides, or PCV valve? What else could it be? I'd like an estimate before I take it in :(
whistle goes away when pressed slightly. Happens almost always, but less noticeable after a longer drive, whistle Chirping best describes the sound.

Bf jumped the car after the battey died. Now the windows are unresponsive, the interior lights (colored,roof) dont work, and the blinkers dont work outside nor in. Everything else seems to be fine. What could this be. Tried the unplugging and letting it sit of the battery. Nothing. Tried banging on the panels in the doors. Nothing. Tried toggling the switch for the windows. Nothing. Checked all fuses. They are all fine. Not sure where to go know. Im thinking its becaused it was jumped but how can i fix it and how much will it cost or is there something i can do. Pretty handy myself.

Brake check engine and Eml light is coming on
My daughter's car was making an unusual noise and so she brought it to repair shop. It was 3qt low on oil! Repair shop added oil, drove it a bit (surprised it sounded and felt fine but there were some error codes) and recommended brake job and water pump replacement (leaking) along with a thermostat replacement. Started the car in the afternoon to bring it in for water pump replacement and it sounded so bad he didn't start the work and will do some more inspection (remove valve cover) but the engine will probably need replacement. No obvious oil leaks, oil changed and checked regularly. Issue may be with reading the dip stick? Does anyone else have this issue?
I have a 2006 mini that I just bought and I can't figure out how to set up the Bluetooth so I can use my phone /navigation through the stereo. Any suggestions?
acted like it was out of gas, but after I pulled over a few min. later it started. It stalled again going about 40 mh. It started again . I drove home and here I am.
The "miss/studder" seems to happen in all gears. If I "floor" the accelerator, the missing/studder will immediately go away. Any ideas what the trouble is? Bad gas?...or something more serious?
I hit a pothole yesterday (not a very big one in my opinion). Immediately, my car started running rough and died within a few seconds. Now it won't start. The starter engages but it's as though the engine is either not getting fuel or isn't getting a spark. I read that there is a collision sensor that cuts the fuel supply and that sometimes the sensor gets jarred and needs to be reset. Is this a common problem or is there another common problem that leads to my problem?
