i had an accident in which my front suspension was to be repaired along with other physical body damage. After getting my car back, immediately i noticed the brakes were squeaking and there was a grinding noise, it was not aligned,there was violent shaking on the passenger side (where the damage occurred) so much so that the seat was shaking visibly, a loud whirling or humming noise also coming from passenger side under or near wheel and tire area, and since taking it to a shop, there are now hot spots on the rotors, the brakes need replaced, the struts are leaking and the axle installed was faulty and not OEM (neither were any other parts DESPITE ASXKIGN 4 TIMES FOR THEM TO BE) NOW insurance company is denying any of the damamge is caused by the axle being faulty after they made me driveon it that way from july to september?

Volvo S40 2.4L 5 cylinder. 5 months ago my oil light came on between services and the oil was completely empty. The car was about 3k miles from next service date. Took it in for service and shop didn't find anything. Less than 4.5 months later, car burned through another 6 quarts of oil. Took it to another shop and they did a cylinder test and it looks like two of the cylinders are leaking. Options given from the shop: 1. Sell the car, 2. drop in a new engine. Car has only 155k on it and has never missed a service. Can the cylinders be repaired without replacing the whole engine? This just seems very premature for a volvo.

Sometimes when I press on the accelerator the car does not accelerate. Eventually it kicks in and works. This is an ongoing problem.
Clean pcv system
Engine noise sounds like alternator bearings were bad. Changed alternator but noise still there. Noise stops when you remove the oil filler cap. Noise starts again when you tighten oil filler cap.
