I have a '97 Nissan Maxima, and the key broke in the ignition, how should i go about fixing/replacing it?

I changed out the power antenna and no longer have radio, seat belt control nor power antenna. Any helpful notes would be greatly appreciated.

Does rattling at startup and hard starting mean timing chain problems? I occasionally get white smoke when the car is hard to start. What could be the problem?

I've been haunted by engine performance issues for over a month now.Now my transmission seems to be slipping.

Blower/fan vibrates as speed (of fan) increases. At highest setting, the entire dashboard and console shake so bad it is actually scary. Would appear to be the blower - do you agree?

I've got auto climate control and just about every extra this car had to offer. I'm pretty good with fixing things.

Can the blower be easily replaced? I can see/hear that it's under the glove box. It's a tight fit for me to work in that area.

Are there free service manuals on-line somewhere?

My car seems to eat oil periodically, Sometimes a quart every two weeks somtimes a quart every month and even every two also makes a rattling noise when you accelerate....

136k miles. After heating up my car seems to bog down almost dying and then the rpms come up to about 1500. It does this about 4-5 times in a row and then clears up and runs fine.It only does this when accelerating.
