First....Do you keep regular maintenance up on the car? For example do you have the oil changed regularly? There are a host of things that should be done to keep fuel mileage to its best. Tire inflation to proper settings (look on the door jam drivers door. a sticker will tell you proper PSI for your cars tires) Fuel filter change , air filter change, PCV valve, tune up, are all things that need to be done to keep your car running at its best. What mileage are you getting now? How many miles are on the car now?

Disconnect the hose from the valve and the nipple where it attaches to the engine. Clean any debris away from the valve. Use a deep-well socket to back the old valve out. Reverse process to install.

Most likely the battery has insufficient charge to turn over the starter motor.

If you can start the car by jump starting from the battery in another vehicle then you know your battery is the problem. In that event it needs to be recharged or replaced if it will no longer hold power. It is probably the original battery in the car and typically these can give trouble in anything from 3 - 5 years depending on quality and a range of other factors.

the cause of the heavy black smoke is un-burnt fuel. is from excessive fuel pressure, faulty injectors,ignition timing out. If it is a turbo operation then the turbo is not producing the correct boost for the fuel settings . Check turbo for vane actuation . low power comes from overfuelling, low air flow. run the fault codes to see which sensors are out of parameter.

This is a common problem with these clocks where the set buttons stop responding. The only fix is to replace the clock unless you want to do some detailed soldering to replace the micro-switches.

The solenoid is bad, you have to replace the whole shifter. It can be bypassed, but you need an electrician for cars to do it.

For a few minutes yes. Look in your owners manual and it will guide you through how to reset lights and different functions thru the radio menu.

the ac starting and stopping is from high head pressure (too much gas/blockage) or thermostat settings If you have a climate control module that also controls the heat then it may be the module that is faulty. have it checked out by an accredited ac specialist shop.
