Pull your oil dipstick and look at the level and appearance of what's on the stick.

If the oil level is WAY high, and it looks like chocolate milk, that's where your coolant is going.

It means either the head gasket is blown, or the cylinder head, or the engine block is cracked.

Try the dimmer switch or it could be a fuse.

try pulling fuse #14 I believe it is for central locking sy
stem. This fuse panel is in the trunk on the passenger side. Check the cover to see what # fuse it is pull it out for 5 seconds and put back in. Their's a chance u may be able to reactivate the pump and things will start working again..good luck

Sounds like a problem with your ignition lock cylinder. Have you tried more then 1 key?

vibrations come fro bent shafts , bad wheel bearings out of adjustment bearings, warped disc rotors, faulty tyres ( band shifted ), bulges on side walls, out of balanced tyres

do you have fuel lines near any hot surfaces like manifolds? sounds to me your fuel is getting hot and vaporising. Try fuel pump or relay. Coil or igniton module next most likely.

The code P0135 means O2 sensor heater circuit malfunction bank 1 sensor 1. This means you most likely have a bad O2 sensor. The possible causes are:

TT - Faulty Heated Oxygen Sensor (H2OS) Bank 1 Sensor 1
- Heated Oxygen Sensor (H2OS) Bank 1 Sensor 1 circuit fuse
- Heated Oxygen Sensor (H2OS) Bank 1 Sensor 1 circuit open shorted to ground
- Heated Oxygen Sensor (H2OS) Bank 1 Sensor 1 circuit poor electrical connection
- Faulty Engine Control Module (ECM) Usually the code indicates a bad Oxygen sensor, but an intake vacuum leak or a failing fuel pump can cause the code, so check your intake vacuum hose for a leak or hole. But most likely, you have a faulty Oxygen sensor. Now Bank 1 Sensor 1 means the bad O2 sensor is the one on the number one cylinder side (which is the cylinder closest to the timing belt or where all your belts and pulleys are),which is bank one. If you look really closely, you will see that the number 1 cylinder is just a little bit closer to the belts than the number 2 cylinder. Now that you know which side you are dealing with, the next step is which sensor. There are two O2 sensors on each side (upstream or downstream), four total. Sensor 1 is the upstream sensor, which is before the catalytic converter closest to the exhaust manifold. Number 2 sensor is on or after the catalytic converter. So in short, you are replacing the O2 sensor on the Number 1 cylinder side before the catalytic converter. They are a pain to remove. Get some Pb Blaster lubricating oil and spray on the threads and let sit for 10 minutes and spray it again. You will need a 7/8 Oxygen sensor removal socket to remove it. Don't forget to disconnect negative battery terminal and O2 wire harness first.. Any questions please feel free to email me. Good luck.

The car will run richer in cold weather, especially at start. You may have an exhaust leak. Put something over the tail pipe and listen for hissing under the car. Any hiss is an exhaust leak, must be fixed.
The gauge thing may be an old, loose alternator belt, giving low voltage when things are cold and stiff. A new belt may help. Do a voltage check while watching the gauges..
