Question Answered: 

Is the coolant circulating? If you can't see it flowing, then the problem is the water pump.

Question Answered: 

Need to check color of motor oil, possible head gasket leak into motor oil and then burning off and out exhaust, hence no visible leak.

Question Answered: 

If this is an automatic, the shifter cable may have broke. The cable runs to the top of the transmission.

Question Answered: 

Without circulation, you can have a bad water pump or a cooling system blockage. Probably the pump.

Question Answered: 

Yup that sounds about what you will get. Plus, if you go to long the caliper cylinders will go to far forward and leak out as well. Needs a brake job ASAP!

Question Answered: 

2 main possibilities. One, you have a break in the line and you are losing pressure and fluid rapidly. Two, the master cylinder has failed (very unlikely in such a new vehicle). Odds are something struck the brake line and caused a large cut and you are leaking fluid. Check fluid level.

Question Answered: 

Vacuum line break. One of the air intake lines may have cracked, came off or has a hole in it. Usual culprit is the PCV hose. Start vehicle and spray carb cleaner on the intake hoses. If the engine starts surging, you have found the faulty hose. Best I can come up with the info. given.

Pull the MAF sensor and clean it with MAF cleaner or electronic parts cleaner then put it back in. Also, cylinder 4 is misfiring. While running pull wire harness off the spark plug ignition coil on cylinder 4. If nothing changes, the coil is bad and needs replaced. If the engine starts running rough, change the spark plugs. Hope this clears it all up for you!

Question Answered: 

Possible CV joint issue in half-shaft. Clicking noise is the large bearings in the joint bouncing around. Passenger side half-shaft or passenger driveshaft is what it is called. Needs replaced soon or tire will wear out quick as well.

Question Answered: 

Don't know for sure.....unless you have a heater core leak which would explain it. Without a leak, can't be sure....change the cabin filter and see if that helps. Also check coolant level to make sure it is not getting low.
