Question Answered: 

Just buy a welding tip cleaner kit. It has different size of needles, with about 2,5" length. You can use that for loooong years to clean the nozzles on different cars/ nozzles. There are some cars that comes with a little in-line filter installed and can clog also. Zee

Question Answered: 

It's a generic transmission fault. I bet there is an other -more specific- code also in the system. I don't think I have ever seen the P0700 code by itself. Anyway, when you fix the other P07XX code, the P0700 will disappear. Zee

Question Answered: 

Start with the basics first. Compression and fuel pressure are confirmed and good? No intake leaks at all? Resistance on MAF and MAP doesn't mean the sensing element actually working. Can you see live data through ECM? When you disconnect the MAF it works better? When you reset the ECM it works perfectly until code returns? What about O2 sensor readings? Can you check the wave form of it? Zee

Usually there is a solution - it might not an easy one though. Could you be more specific about the location of the leak? Is it leaking at the sunroof, windshield, door's weather strips?

So what leaks??? A/C refrigerant or fuel?? You mean you have a bad gas mileage? The car using too much fuel?? Is that the problem? Please be more specific. Zee

Question Answered: 

It would be good to test drive it and feel what's going on exactly, but here: I assume your rims are good and tires are balanced. How about front shock absorbers, upper and lower control arms and steering shock? Zee
