there are many reason a transmission wont shift or down shift to pass. any check engine light or transmission would be helpful in diagnostics.

shifts fine runs great just wont shift into passing gear

cd player lights stay on after tuning off car battery drainsand cd player displays err2 cd s wont eject

It only does this when it's cold. The same thing happened to my other Amanti. Does anyone know why this might be happening? Thanks

When i set the temperature to max temperature i only get cool air

ESP off light on dashboard staying on majority of time. Steering intermittently felt as though no control. When driving high speed on curve tires did not turn with the wheel turn. Steering wheel no longer horizontally level; when turned right, the wheel remains turned to the right though tires are straight; same for left turn. Now car is inoperable as steering wheel will turn, then lock, then turn, then lock; steering column making weird knocking noise; wheels not turning properly; also knocking noise coming from under hood passenger side. Any thoughts?

I'm wanting to change the plugs. What are the best type of plugs for my money? and does this car have spark plug wires or does it have coil on plugs?

Its coming from the drivers side front wheel.
Im worried its going to ruin something i need answers to fix fast.

I switched the control module in the dash but it still doesnt heat the drivers side

resistant shifting from park into gear on first start of day. ok after that. approx 84000 miles.

When I put the car in reverse it sometimes hesitates before moving. At other times it may hesitate then jump into reverse. Maybe twice a week this happens.
Also the outside mirrors never stay in place. Every time I put the car in park the mirrors change position. I know they are supposed tilt when in reverse but they never go back to their original positions.
