I've tried everything making sure it was in park , spraying some lubricant in it , jiggling it and even had a new Key made and still won't turn so I can remove the lock cylinder to replace it what else can I try

I am replacing the fuel pump. There is no access to it from the inside of the vehicle. There is a half a tank of gas in it. I believe it has a safety screen because any type of hosing I have tried only goes in about a foot. Without having 7 gallons of gas fall on me, how can I get to the pump to replace it? PLEASE HELP!!

I have changed the plugs coils and the boots with no luck. cant seem to figure out what is cause steady misfire in cylinder #1.i am detecting small amount of oil on new idle or low speed vibration and bad mis , at hwy speed can barely feel the miss. is possibly headgasket,or valve or could it be a manifold problem? all cyclinder have between 207 to 205 compression with 178,000 on engine . it overheated fixed that two days later this happened steady mis in #1 only

Car will start and stall immediately. Would stall while driving. Had a fuel pressure regulator leak so mechanic changed it out for new one yesterday. Car drove great . started great, no issues. Ran a couple errons . Never had an issue till the next morning, it started good, drove good, went to gas station put gas in, go to start it, it started but died. Tried again it started. Pulled out of gas station to a red light and it stalled. Got it started Pulled into a different gas station down the road. Turned it off and it fired right back up. Drove about 40 miles Total. Got home and went to leave about an hour later, it started then stalled, then it started. Went about 4miles turned it off and it would not start. Waited 30-40 min, took a couple tries for it not to stall while trying to start. Heard a small backfire right before i got it to start. Drive back home about 4 miles, turned car of and iT fired right up the 3 times i turned it off and started it.
Could this be related to new fuel pressure regulator being replaced?
If i give it gas to try and get it started it is like its not getting gas

theft alarm stays on after vehicle is shut off. Theft light under radio flashes on/off. Security light in dash is off. Everything is normal when vehicle is running.

Car was running normal when I turned it off. when I started it an hour or so later, It started and ran fine until I put it in gear to drive away and started skipping and rough running, low power until getting it going then it ran fine. just bothers when starting off. if light on throttle till you get going it doesnt bother as bad and has normal power at driving speed and slowing down is fine till you take foot off pedal. up shifting and down shift the auto transmission isnt an issue. thank you

After cranking a little sounds like it fires. Maybe fuel filter had water & froze restricting fuel since there is fuel at check valve.

I had a leak and am not repairing it so I want to stop AC system from working

Coolant flows into oil pan w/o starting car. Put dye in coolant to better determine problem After disasembly.but at 4 gal water I stopped & checked was over full with water and oil. Could it still b a bad lower intake manifold or gasket?

I've done several head gaskets in the past, but never seen excessive coolant in oil.. Usually a small amount. I know the head gaskets have been replaced with in last 2 yr. Was thinking more cracked head or block?

to no avail. The light still remains on. Also, at the same time when I step on the gas and the transmission should shift it does but does it hard. You can actually feel it change. So is this the transmission, because someone told me it was the crank shift sensor? Any ideas would be appreciated.
