Sounds like you have a manual transmission. The problem as described is more than likely a worn detent on the shift rail. This is a job for a gearbox specialist.

Most repairs are covered by AT LEAST A 90 DAY WARRANTY. Get that car back in there and tell them it's been having issues since you took it back from them. Ask them what they are prepared to do for you before you get legal help. That should get the ball rolling in the right direction.

Cooling system failure. Any part of the system could be at fault.

Could be the compressor belt is slipping.

Try tightening the belts first. You may have to do it a couple times, as new belts will loosen up a bit as they break in. Not TOO tight, though. That can put a lot of pressure on the bearings.

Your clutch is not releasing, check the slave cylinder. Consider bringing it to a professional.

Wiring and connections at TPS may be corroded or signal ground may be bad . Did you test it while running also to see how the engine reacts?

The most likely cause is a failing neutral safety switch. See diagram and pic below. Find this part and check the connection.

Might have broken wiring harness wires that run from the cabin to the door. There is a rubber boot that covers this harness, runs near the door hinges, remove boot and check all wires and if you find any damaged or broken, repair and test auto door lock.

I don't think it is your catalytic converter because your light usually flashes and a bad cat I never heard of them causing a misfire. I ran your other code it is for a faulty EGR system. Exhaust gas recirculation excessive. You are getting too much exhaust gas back in the system. This will cause your misfire. Go-to a trusted mechanic and have them check out your EGR system.

Make, model and year of car would help.
It could be the battery.

Change the headlight relay found in the fuse box.

not a lower control arm problem
the wheel alignment guy is not lying

the front wheel drive only has tow in toe out adjustments
no camber adjustments
the frame is pre stressed at manufacture set at zero

if the shock tower frame on any front wheel drive gets bent up.... even a little bit
the camber will be way out
even front ride height may be way out on each front side

too dangerous to drive
the car is a write off


only good to sell for parts or buy the same model and swap over its good bits

if you like the car a lot
to correct the damage needs the front chassis stripped back to frame and put on a frame straightenerd47f961b-7315-43ab-a146-e3069f36ad5f.jpg

I would say yes to getting a electrical check on it. Could be a short or bad ground.
