you definitely have a wire that is loose somewhere . Probably in your fuse box. Could be a fuse that's going bad as well. Movement in your car making contacts to come apart then back together again

Your Clutch Master/Slave may have gone bad, you may also have a failure with your Pressure Plate. Can you shift it when shut off?

Undo the battery and let sit for a few minutes before hooking back up. This sometimes resets the computer on luxury cars. I had a Mercedes that did things like that

I think it is old & parts are worn

The only way to confirm wear is to remove the
seat,that part is fairly easy,just remove the 4 bolts
holding it to the floor pan

Figuring out how to power it up out of the car to
test things, will get interesting, I would guess.

the problem you do have is by the automatic transmission, gear lever there is a safety catcher for holding the gear stick.On applying you brakes by pressing the brake pedal don you must hear a slight click noise and either release the gear lever to go to pa king or to any other selected gear.

compression test most likely blown head but first why did you change all this stuff if the cause was overheating then am suspecting a blown head gasket

unplug the fan at the connector,, use jumper wires from the battery to see if the fan works with direct current, if it does, check the relay for the fan in the under hood fuse box, and also the fuse itself

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

If you have overheating problem, it can lead to multiple issues. You may be running on low coolant that's why the vehicle overheats. If that's the case, please add coolant and make sure that it sits on the right level, too much coolant can cause overheating too for coolant will overflow.

The vehicle may have a faulty or worn out radiator blower motor that's why it overheats. If that's the case then you will need a blower motor replacement to resolve the issue.

If the radiator is clogged with dirt and rusts this issue occurs too. The coolant doesn't flow normally on the cooling system if it's clogged. If that's the case, I strongly suggest that you have the radiator flushed to drain out dirt and rusts. If you think that the radiator served you enough then it's better to have it replaced.

Please do check the radiator hoses, If you have worn out hoses it can cause coolant leakage which can result to overheating. A tiny hole is good enough for the vehicle to overheat.

A faulty thermostat sensor can cause the issue too. If you have worn out thermostat, the fan may not trigger that's why the fan won't work when under stressed conditions. A blown radiator blower fuse can cause this issue too so I suggest that you check the radiator blower fuse and replace it when necessary. What causes the radiator blower fan fuse to blow? It's because of a failing radiator blower motor, If that's the case have the radiator blower fan motor replaced.

If the fluid in radiator doesn't circulate then it means that you have a blown head gasket or a faulty water pump. I suggest that you go for the water pump replacement first specially if you think that it's near the end of it's service life. Usually, water pops out the radiator when engine is reved (a sign of faulty water pump and possible blown head gasket).

Hope you find this information helpful enough and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

tracking control light is on car fish tails in rain

I don't think there is any adjustment for idle.
Take idle control valve out and clean it with carb cleaner (you'll see black staff inside on turning door,you may spray a little bit of WD40 on the door after you clean it but blow it with compressed air after) also clean throttle body inside ,around flap and edges of the flap. Over the years , oil fumes create deposite of kind of gum substence which clogging up the idle valve and clearance between flap and throttle body , reducing amount of air coming through and bringing idle down.
For this job I usually take throttle body out , make sure to plug water hoses going to the T/B preventing coolant loss. Take extra care removing T/B , there is a gasket between T/B and intake manifold ,you'll have to reuse it , so try not to brake it as it will be stuck on either T/B or intake manifold or on both , use raisor blade to separate it on one side.
