Question Answered: 

You likely have a couple bad wires or a defective control module. Probably best to have it checked by a qualified shop. Feel free to call with any other questions

Question Answered: 

Fix the fuel leak, clear the codes and retest. The leak itself would not ruin anything, but it could cause random codes

Question Answered: 

There are several issues that could cause this, most hard to determine without tear-down. I would be happy to discuss if further, but you should just give me call. I have too many questions. How many miles? Does it do it on restarts? Etc. You can reach me at 763-205-1847 8-5 Mon-Fri or 612-710-1829

Question Answered: 

Not sure off the top of my head. You can try to google or youtube it. Otherwise you may just want to have a shop look at it. If it is expensive they are difficult to access. My guess is it should be pretty strsight forward, just don't have access to the proper manuals at the moment

Question Answered: 

Bad switch, resistor, wiring, or a combination of those. Would need to troubleshoot it for you to know for sure. Call if you have further questions

Question Answered: 

I can help you with both issues. 1- is likely a tune-up issue. Plugs, and probably a coil or two. Possible a fuel injector. I would need to see the car to determine which for sure. $700 seems very high for one arm and align. I just installed two arm and align on a versa for less than that. Get ahold of me and I can work up a price if you would like. My shop is in New Hope, but I can arrange a loaner car for your use while making the repairs

Question Answered: 

Depends on who replaced them and the quality of the parts. As stated by pushrod those cheap pads you get at the "big" box auto parts stores are cheap, but cheap usually means just that...cheap. I go through it daily at my shop and 9 out of 10 times it is poor installation (not cleaning all the rust, etc) or cheap pads. You can live with it or have the job done correctly with quality parts. Even then, as a vehicle ages, wear to the hub surface, suspension components, caliper pins, etc all compound to contribute to brake vibration which causes noise. Especially on a vehicle of that age, you will need to ensure the integrity of the entire from end, calipers, rotors, to completely eliminate all nuisance brake noises

Some mirrors allow for just the glass to be replaced. Check with the dealer. If you need help feel free to give me a call

Question Answered: 

Junkyard is your only cheaper option that I am aware of. There are some knock-off lamps for many vehicles these days that are cheaper, but if the are articulating lamps and HID's it's just flat-out gonna be expensive
