My car will start and run but it stutters and the acceleration isnt right. I took it to a shop. They didn't give me the codes from the diagnostic machine. However they did overcharge me. the sparkplugs were replaced and the MAF was cleaned. I'm trying to figure out which part to buy. Can you help?
Last week, my car had huge groaning sound and the workshop told me to continue drive the car until the replacement part arrive (estimated arrival date for parts was 1 week). This morning my car could not start at all and the workshop told me that the battery is completely flat and need replacement. There was no indication of low battery whatsoever throughout the material time. The question is whether a defective water pump can affect the battery, causing battery to fail?
I had it towed to what was a recommeded auto shop, verified by this and that, They told me they would run an diagnostic test on it that would be $75.I also told them I had a slow lwak in rear tire that needed to be repaired. I agreed....358.78 later. I have no recored of service code from machine, 26.00/ea X 5 sparkplugs replaced at labor cost 107. 6$ for fuel put in car and then they charged 20.00 to replace slow leak! Can I call them to get codes from my car. and is there any legal remedy....OH YEA!!!....They told me the fuel pump was out and that would be $1200.00 !!!! The car will start and run, I dont believe them. I am not driving it at present. What could be other possible problems. I'm just a girl and dont know alot about cars, but I do know that is a crazy price
The button started not working and I was using a tool to push to open, the it didn't work like that anymore. So recently I used a little screwdriver and it pushed inside and I can't get it out and it won't work. I'm sad I can't use my convertible top. Can someone help.

I put a scanner on it and it gave 2 codes 16726 camshaft sensor and 16486 mass airflow to low. I replaced the cam sensor and inspected the timing belt it looks ok even though the car has 75,000 miles on it. when I try to start it, it sounds like the starter is spinning but not engaging I the timing belt nor the serpentine belt pulleys are moving when I try to start it? is the engine blown?

motor oil leak appears between trans and engine. no trans fluid leaking
When I turn the key, it "sputters". The dash lights come on, the digital clock comes on, the headlights come on.
The alternator is indicating that it is putting out enough voltage, and the battery is as well.
There does't appear to be any leakage.
I have been told to replace the timing belts water pump ect is that true and how can you tell if you have to.
Once it is hot and turned off. after a while it will not start until I open the gas cap a wait about ten minuites.
Starts fine when cold or after have the gas cap off for a while. Turns over but will not fire up?
