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?

What could be the problem
Only starts after car has been running for over 1/2 hour or so. May start sooner on a hot day and/or in constant traffic.

Does not appear to come from the engine.

Can hear it best in rear seating area, and sounds like it's coming from under the console back there.

Can hear from outside, sounds like it's coming from under the car.
It was working fine before I replaced the battery with another CR 2450 battery. Now, it doesn't work at all. Please help.
I had the serpitine belt replaced because it broke along with the timing belt and its components but car still wont hold pressure. Does that auto matically mean its valves and or pistons are out or could be something else. When serpentine belt broke I heard it and stopped right away.
diagnostics indicating the fault after new battery and new starter motor fitted, still wont start
Is this normal,even when the key is in the off position?

My car battery died. Once I jumped it, it now has a check alarm system notification on the dash. Is there any way to reset that notification? The nearest dealership is over an hour away.
