This is similar to my previous question about electrical issues with the car. At random times, with the AC on full blast, I will notice a burning smell from the vents. It will go away after a while, but honestly I'm worried the car may explode on me.
I'm assuming this is an electrical issue. About a year ago, my windows began rolling up and down on their own. This includes the sunroof which will open at random times. The radio and lights work fine, and I can easily roll the windows back up if they open on their own.

My car battery was replaced in 2014, but my car battery was dead a couple of weeks ago. I took it to the dealership and they recommended to replace the battery. Yesterday, the car battery was dead again even with the new battery. I would like to get some advice about the problem as well as estimate for diagnostics costs.
1. Currently having leaks of coolant popping up continuously everywhere it seems. going on for about 3 months.
2. Engine makes a ticking sound and becoming more progressive with time.
3. starting to smell gas in oil. immediately after I changed it.
4. Malfunction light- exhaust temperature sensor is a problem. Could this alone be the cause for the rest?
5. Had radiator replaced 3-5 months ago.
6. Temperature sensor use to be an ongoing issue and have had thermostat "stuck". Need to check still.
7. Keep noticing that my coolant reserve cap keeps coming loose. seems to shut Ok though.
8. Had the "engine block only" replaced 1.5 years ago with used block from junk yard. Problem caused by a lack of oil. Had oil change one month prior though and had checked it days before engine failed. (deal seemed shady and oil changed by the same guy who "replaced" the engine).
There was no compression in the engine. I saw this done myself but I would have believed whatever he showed at the time.
Rough idle, car engine burns hot but thermo-gauge doesn't show this.
I had used those STOP LEAK pellets for the coolant at one time, before radiator was replaced.
There isn't any small part to glue on the glass till its ready for the mirror to be replaced??
