car may go 20 miles without missfire or it may go 5 miles and start missing but going down the highway i can turn ign off and on and the miss will be corrected but only for a short time. recently replaced the mass airflow sensor and fixed vac leaks

It has 93k miles

I struggle when start sometimes motor sounds right and sometimes it sounds like two or three selinders motor does not perform like it needs to

At first, I would turn the steering wheel all the way left, then all the way right, and shut off the engine for about a minute, then when I turned the engine back on, the "BAS-ESP" light was off. But now, the light stays on, no matter what I do. Even with this warning light on, the car seems to run just fine. Should I worry and stop driving the car? What does this "BAS-ESP' mean?

Inserted the key and it will not turn. Steering whell is locked, I tried to turn it as far as I dared. Nothing. PRND displays a rectangle to the right not on the P.

Is the RTF signal not being received to unlock the anti theft?

Don't know difference between a sway bar or differential just need to know I was told that it's not my shocks

I heard to Valve body is a one time flash to the vin. Is this true?

Of shredding

the motor on the windsheild is not completly out because u can hear it and also it goes halfway then gets stuck in the middle

How long do I have to replace it

Panoramic sunroof rattle. Sunroof completely closes, sunroof motor starts rattling then sunshade doesn't close.

The airbag came out and in order to fix I'm looking into steering columns, the wheel is next to impossible to turn as well. I think I may also need a seat belt tensioner.

TI cannot move the seat up or down back or forward. It stopped working sometime ago and started back, now it is not working again.

mileg,110, suddenly my car starts to shake & about to shutdown,

194,000 miles, changed fuel filter, air and oil, CEL is on, engine does not always stop, no response from gas pedal, local shop could not read codes. I thinking fuel pump is going, going, gone at the worst time. Any suggestion?
