Question Answered: 

need valve seals for the morning smoke, for the other issues maybe a dirty mass air flow sensor. careful what you use to clean electronic parts as its easy to cause more harm then good. Goodluck! hope that helps.

Question Answered: 

check fuses and if those are good and you have power then change the bulbs. philips screw driver should be all you need for removing any lights. bulbs simply twist out.

Question Answered: 

not sure what your needing? if your trying to sell this vehicle and nobody wants to buy it the milage isnt really bad, motor was just broken in not long ago. but many ppl are afraid of cars at 200 000k or more. if your trying to say the check engine light is on then scan it. again not sure what you were asking.

Question Answered: 

is the sound coming from the top end? a ping or knocking sound and shaking is probably timing or miss fires. pull plug wires one by one while engine is running (use rubber gloves and/or pliers) and if the motor does not change sound on any one cylinder then you have found a problem. could be a plug, wire or coil or coil packs, not sure what your car has.

Question Answered: 

only the one window? if all others have power still its a connection at the window motor. try a couple of smacks to see if it starts working again, my crown vic needed a few smacks from time to time. was just to lazy to pull the door panel. (which is very easy btw)

repair manual from local auto parts store. always good to have one. Actually if theres no plastic on the manual then open it to index find what you need, take a picture and run with the new found info safely in your phone :)

Question Answered: 

definitely do a tune up, if the problem persists could be a fuel filter, air filter. if the problem still persists check your timing

Question Answered: 

just a guess but id say your shift solenoids are shot, however my experience was with a ford. still should be basically the same concept. on my for i had three shift solenoids, all for one objective, talk about over doing it. lucky for me one of the solenoids was just inside the pan so i pulled it and swapped the part. it worked for me so i can only hope you get it as easy as i did. dont know if that helps. Goodluck!

depends on how the cars driving? does it shift funny? shift hard? not shift at all? slip a little bit? leak at all?
