I have a 2001 Pontiac Sunfire and every time it rains or snow in the cold weather all the doors freeze shut what can i use to stop this

Get a can of silicone spray from your local parts store. Spray a rag liberally and wipe down all of the rubber gaskets that seal the doors to the car. The silicone spray will keep ice from freezing the seals to the door.

2009 town & country limited, the very top gasket of sliding doors when closed and driving down road makes sweaking sound, I put masking tape on door gaskets and sound is gone, what could be a permanent solution.

Hello: Apply dielectric silicone grease to the seals. It will help preserve the rubber seals and prevent the noise. You can get it at a auto parts store.

Both driver-side door latches stick when opening requiring a little extra tug to open the door. Had them lubed, but no help.

Be sure it's not something that was sprayed or spilled onto your rubber noise/weather seals that line the interior of the door. Sometimes detail shops use things other than Armor All and it causes a sticky seal. Listen for a noise, if not, maybe your latch needs adjusted (the part on the door jamb, not the latch on the door). This could cause you to break a door handle in the winter.

2004 Toyota Sienna sliding doors don't open in cold.

You could try surf board wax or spray crc on a rag and wipe the seals.
