Had a rear end collision in 2002 New Beetle. The shocks in the rear bumper did deploy, contracted to absorb the hit, then returned to original position. Have seen that the bumper shocks must be replaced after collision. They are only good for one incident. Insurance Adjustor does not seem to know this. Any comments? Ideas?

car started off by needing rear brake pads,so decided to do front aswell. pedal was nice and firm before replacing all pads. all pistons went back in easily but for some reason, now has very spongy pedal and goes to the floor. removed all pads and seems that front pads arent grabbing rotors like if the pistons were stuck? removed pads and they come out fine, bled ft brakes and still nothing,master cylinder?

On my afternoon drives home, only during the summer, my power steering goes out and in. when the weather is cool outside it always works no problem. Any help?

I have a 2004 volkswagen jetta 1.8L turbo w/5-spd manual transmission.
On several occasions I have gone out to start my car and realized the power to the car has been lost.(clock has been reset, trip odometer is at 0.00 and radio has been reset). But thats not the biggest prblem. At least twice while I was driving I lost power to the car. The engine just died, radio and lights turned off and felt like steering locked up on me, but just as soon as the power went dead it came right back on a second later. And I noticed EPC light flashed.
I've read other peoples posts that are similar to mine, but in my case light doesn't stay on and power comes back right away
Also believe my car is burning oil(gives off really strong odor) *friend told me car is burning oil*
but when I check my oil it is always at normal levels.
Was wondering if 2 could be related.

I would really appreciate any help I can get

I've had a problem with the heater and air conditioner for the last two seasons. Both systems are weak, meaning that the heater barely puts out warm air and the AC system barely puts out cool air. The fan seems to work fine. I was told the problem is the motor, but I'm not confident about that. Does anyone have information about this problem?

Car has spark, fuel pressure, pump relay actuates, and after
