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 has very good manuals online, without expiry i.e. for lifetime.

The only real way to tell with the oil is have it tested, any autoparts store can do that through a lab. If it is fuel leaking in the oil then that has thinned the oil and will cause wear. The issue is most likely the injectors are not sealing when they are off and fuel is leaking into the cylinders till the pressure is relieved and that is why it also does not start easy. IT has to build up pressure to get the injectors to spray

i would try first to replace your fuel filter. this is an easy and cost effective way to solve this problem. the fuel filter should be located on the drivers side in the frame rail near the rear tire

Access to the bolt heads is through holes which are generally exposed once any interior trim has been removed. The lower hinge bolts are relatively easy but the upper ones can sometimes challenge the most supple of people. Sometimes other dashboard or instrument stuff must be removed or pushed aside. Sometimes such things as the fusebox must be removed.

Vehicle specific information could make your job easier.

If you have never replaced hinges before or removed a door, you have yet to experience the frustrations of door adjustment and the joy of finally getting it right with equal panel gaps all the way around and closing level with the surrounding panels and without riding up or down as it contacts the striker plate.
The latter point is of great importance if premature wear of the catch and the striker is to be avoided.

It is a job that should be faced without time constraints; quite simply it takes as long as it takes and for a novice that can be a long time.

If the hinge pins can be removed easily and refitted in situ and it is only the door side of the hinge that is worn then fitting half an hinge might make the task easier. It depends on the design.
Good luck!

You can have a bent wheel from hitting a curb too hard. You can have worn tie rod ends too. The alignment can be off enough to allow the wheels to shake.

You did not reset anything

What you did was clear all data, needed
in order to check for OBD Codes & look at
freeze frame data, that is there when fault codes
are set

You need all the info you can get, to work on diagnosing
vehicle problems

Cure what problem?

What codes do you have?

There is a snap ring that broke in the rear of the transmission. Remove the drive shaft, remove the tail piece, push the drum forward and replace the snap ring. If you have 4X4 remove the transfer case
