The problem started with the car not going into drive but we could get it into first gear.

When at night they are not bright enough.

It's trying to start but not catching please help

On the interstate with heat & AC on, then had a horrible loud screech sound and car bogged down. got right off the exit and pulled into a walmart parking lot. Smoke coming from AC compressor and i touched the pulley wheel and it was about as hot as an exhaust manifold but never broke the belt. I shut off all my AC components with my interior controls and restarted my car. pulley moved freely but has sway and whines now and got gradually worse on the 20 miles to home. Is this the clutch, bearings, or would i be just as well off slapping a new compressor in the thing and being done with it. and if it is one of the more specific components, does it require any specialty tools or gizmos? I cant just strip it apart as this is my daily driver and i cant afford the expensive quick fixes lol

My car dosent changes gear, its starts from 3 or 4th gear, its heard to move the car, and its remain to the same 3 gear till i stop the car. Please help me.

intermittent problem over last 6 weeks; then multiple incidents yesterday over 15 minute period with loss of power (more than 10 times, back to back)

my drivers seat is leaned all the way back and will not lean forward

on a warm day it usually only takes two kicks before the car finally starts, but now that it is cold it takes about 5 minutes of cranking before it starts? at red lights i am very weary because i've had it just stall and the engine shut off multiple times already. i'm thinking its my fuel injectors but im not too sure.

In cold weather, ie below freezing, my alternator light remains on until I drive a few kilometers, then it goes out. There seems to be a correlation between how quickly it goes out and the temperature. The colder it is the longer it takes. I checked voltage while light is on and sure enough the alternator is not charging. The alternator has been replaced but the problem persists. Sounds like a relay is freezing up and then thawing as the temp rises. Can anyone help?
