an old trick i used was to have someone push down on the horn button while i tapped the horns with my spanner. otherwise it will be a trip to the local mechanic.

check all your engine fluids to make sure that's ok. next step is to have a scan done of the ECU to locate the fault. your local auto sparky should have a scan tool.

hi, if the shifter goes into drive, it shows that the cable isn't seized. The cable has probably come out of the locator on top of the trans. If the shifter won't move at all, the cable maybe seized. A job for the experts.

Sorry I am not familiar with the model but it is considered best practice on all engines to slacken the bolts at the outer edges of the cylinder head first and work inwards either in a diagonally opposite pattern or in a spiral pattern.

The spiral pattern is best suited to engines with two parallel rows of bolts and the diagonal pattern should be used with all other types.

A few engines have an extra head bolt or two that is a smaller diameter and these should be loosened before the others.

It is best practice, especially when the cylinder head being removed is aluminium, to ensure the engine is cold (at least 6 hours since last being run) before loosening the head bolts.

Some engines have wet liners and the cylinder head of these engines must be removed with great care ensuring the liners are not lifted. Do not rotate the crankshaft of a wet liner engine until suitable liner clamps have been fitted. Displacing or moving a liner is likely to damage the base seal and require the engine to be completely dismantled.

Could be a plugged fuel filter. Lets some fuel through then higher draw for higher rpm doesn't provide enough fuel so it dies. Also could be debris in the fuel tank when it is pulled under higher draw and blocks line temporarily.

If you're finding it difficult to service/repair your car, get one of those online manuals. You'll not have to wait for others to answer, or rely on mechanics and all. Plus i know a website that sells very cheap but very very good manuals online, without expiry i.e. for lifetime.
for this u can try reliable-store which is pretty good
