There should be a switch something like the one in the attached image on your dashboard. Check the whole dashboard as they can sometimes put it in an odd position. It should be somewhere near the steering column.
If there is two of them with the symbol in opposite directions you have front and rear fog lights fitted.

It depends on the make and model of the AC compressor, go to the link to look up the air gap, but .025" is an average setting

I would need to hear first hand.

Get a rebuild kit for said carb. You'll find that cheaper than a replacement carb. I don't understand why the prices on carbs have gone so high, it's ridiculous. Use the make and model to order a kit and check the numbers you have to a kit before ordering. Just follow the kit instructions explicitly. Make all adjustments per the instructions. It will work just fine.

If you have air conditioning, it will be the heat exchanger relaxing.

lift the bonnet and look for the obvious, like a broken drive belt
to the alternator etc
If you damaged the engine it will be rough running , banging itself apart, smoking so from your description, poor as it is I would be looking for ancillary parts failure, tire failure , cv joint failure or something like that

did you install a O2 sensor or a heated O2 sensor
they are different items and do different jobs
The heated oxygen sensor (HO2S) reads the exhaust gas composition and reports to the ECM to adjust the air /fuel mixture to obtain maximum economy and performance
It is found in the exhaust manifold or before the cat converter
the oxygen sensor (O2 ) is found after the cat converter and reports on the cat converter operation
after installing the correct sensor use a scan tool to reset the ECM

Hi Duncan You need to contact a dealer or manufacturers website. Search recalls airbags make sure you have your VIN number at hand. Depending where you are in the world there may be a dedicated website for air bags you will have to google that. I know where I am in Australia there is and you just need a registration number. Good luck

I have a few trouble shooting tips for the problem with your Subaru Forester key fob.

1) Make sure you have the correct key fob part number. There are a couple different part numbers that are almost exactly the same.

2) Wipe the board
The board inside your remote can get a lot more filthy than you think! When the board is dirty it can prohibit the contact to the circuit board when you push down on the button. Simply wiping the circuit board off can make your key fob like new again!
3) The old car battery reset trick
I know this sounds absurd, but it works sometimes and is worth trying. If you exhausted all of the options above, disconnect bot terminals on your car battery for 10 minutes. Then reconnect them and try your key fob. This has worked for many people and I have no idea why. If you do, please comment below to explain.

4) Not sure where you bought the new key fob from, but some of the suppliers on eBay can be knock off quality. Try sending the one you purchased back and order one from here:

It is possible dedicated diagnostic software is needed to restore default values after replacing the throttle sensor.
Just a guess...

Two top brands are FELPRO MLS (multi layer steel) and SIX STAR which is also a MLS gasket. You can't go wrong with either brand. Good Luck Friend.

At this point according to your description you probably need to replace HEAD GASKETS. The way your car is running indicates to me that there is antifreeze going into one or more of your cylinders. I don't know why the other job was done , but a new pump would have created more pressure on old parts that were ready to go soon . I know this will be an additional cost to you, and this is unfortunate. As apposed to the purchase of a new car it may be cost effective to make the repair, these cars are great , and depending on the condition of you car you may choose to save it. Good Luck Friend.
