Also the readiness codes for the oxygen sensors will not clear or complete. There are no trouble codes showing. Any suggestions, I need to get one more to clear before I can get it inspected. It will pass inspection with only two readiness codes not clear.
I had a dodge neon that did the same thing - on a dry day I took the rear seat out and got in the car and had my wife spray the car doors and trunk with water hose until I found the leak - mine ended up being the gaskets around the taillights and the water was collecting in the trunk under the spare tire and when I would put on brakes the water would slosh forward in the back floorboard underneath the rear seat - it was a mystery until I took seat out and did that
could have a bad switch or bad fuse, if keyless entry is working may not be a fuse though - check wires to switch, if they are ok you may have to replace the switch assy - www.JCWhitney.com for best price 98% of the time
sounds like a possible power steering issue
there should be a ABS sensor on the rear axle that screws with a wire running to it. Unscrew the sensor and clean it, should have a magnet on the end on sensor, if it gets dirty it makes the ABS light come on. If cleaning it does not work replace it. The sensor is not that expensive and would be my first try.
Try changeing the plugs with correct gap setting, wires and then try it. If no luck replace coil pack(s) and misfire can make O2 sensors read bad but are actually not, this is because it is downstream from the engine and it expects the plugs to be working correctly. (Work your way from top to bottom)
may need to change the coil pack out with new one - and make sure plugs have correct gap setting on them - a transmission has nothing to do with a engine misfiring, whole different ballgame - hope this helps
should be under the hood near the passenger side at firewall, some vehicles it is located behind the glove box
This is common for most engines when first started after sitting for a period of time. When a engine sits not running the oil drains back down to the bottom. When it is started the engine takes a second to pump the oil from the bottom back through the lifters in the top off the engine block creating a ticking or knocking sound. Adding a quart of Marvel Mystery Oil helps with this issue, find it at auto parts stores anywhere.
That is a simple fix, it is just the exhaust pipe. Take it to a muffler shop and have them fix or replace it. Should cost you $100 or less to repair.
