It fumbles when I stop and smoke from exhaust

The car overheated. I had replaced the head gasket already about a year ago. Now it's happening again. My options are to replace the head gasket again, replace the engine, or get a new car. I don' want to replace the gasket again. Should I replace the engine on this car? If so, what is an estimate of price for a new/used engine? or should I just cuts my losses with this car. Last year paid $1500 for head gasket and radiator. Three months ago $300 for ignition coil and one month ago $600 sensor replacement. If I do replace the engine, how long do you think the car will last. Please help! Thank you for your time.

My car turns over but it won't start at all.

My wife had a minor accident and now the steering is off. When left wheel is straight, the right wheel is turned out. What would cause that? A bent tie rod? A bent control arm? How would I determine which one?

i have been looking but only find transmission seals ?

In the odometer rectangle the "D" will disappear and I get a flashing square with a horizontal line and a diagonal line from upper left to lower right. Happening with increasing frequency. Took it to a transmission shop and 2 mechanics and none of them know what the symbol means.
Thanks

I was changing the rear brake pads, when I noticed a spring fell off behind the emergency brake disk. How should I compress the spring to get the nail in and locked by hand? I'm having a hard time holding the emergency brake piece down and trying to compress the spring enough to get the retainer clip over the nail to turn and lock it. Is there a special tool to do this?

Will get it to a mechanic in a few days.

Im trying to change out my slave cylinder but can seem to locate it

My son bought a 2008 Suzuki Forenza new, and now he puts his foot on the gas pedal and it does not have any power. This is not a safe car to drive...there are other things wrong, but this is one thing I am very concerned with.

I had the water pump, gaskets and thermostat replaced about 10 months ago the had the water pump replaced about 2 months after that again. Havnt had any problems really since then except I have to put water in about every 1-2 months. Today my car overheated all the way to the H right as i was puling into my drive I popped the hood and it blew the radiator hose off or busted it cant tell yet. What could it be?

2005 Suzuki Forenza Station Wagon 4 cylinder automatic. Air bag lights stays on. Is this a recall?

I'm trying to locate the map sencor

My hose has a big slice in it and it needs to be replaced.

when it accelerates and when the auto transmission shifts gears. Midas tells me my power steering pump is falling apart from the inside. They said they found that out by using a stetoscope. I have no problem steering the car. My 2 out of town mechanic sons tell me it's the transmission not the power steering pump. Should I take it to the Suzuki dealership?

Do I need tape, glue, a new hose? Looks like an easy fix but not sure.

Just bought used 2008 Forenza no check engine light on when we bought it on Monday, had $417 worth of work done incl. replacing timing belt, no check engine light then back on next day, back in shop and another $250 for thermostat sensor replacement and diagnosing of non-functioning A/C - said need new throttle body but couldn't be sure as no tool to diagnose. Car runs fine, no loss of power, etc., and now the A/C works although no work done to it but garage quoted $500+ as new compressor needed? We are taking it to a garage w/right diagnostic tool for better accuracy - spent $3350 for car and we are up to 4k now, plus car has a few dents (not huge but...) feeling like we got ripped off, praying this ends up to be a really good car but gas mileage doesn't even seem to be very good either :-(

there is a small amount of oil leaking from recent gasket replacement
