We took our car in we bought a tire and had it mounted we also had the oil changed and a lube job.

Modern cars don't really have grease fittings anymore.
If the car was an older car it might have had some.

Does a mazda 2006 have grease zerks

Check your vehicle's owner's manual service guide; contact the service or parts dept at a local Mazda dealership; visually (look) at the steering linkages, or call your local auto parts store...I know that some models have sealed units with no lube points and others that have lube points...the consideration is model and are the steering components stock or aftermarket?

I am hoping some of you on here could give me some advice my sister just got shafted on a service on her 2001 Alfa Romeo 147 she took the car in for a service, but mentioned to have a look at the gearbox...

If dealer, go to service manager, no help contact Alfa USA customer service. no Help your state's consumer help system. No help contact consumer oriented lawyer.
Wild guess whoever was driving car was on a "joy ride" on the way to you. It's highly unsual for Dealer to Deliver a car after service. They don't want this kind of liability. So I am guessing it was not a dealer service.

How to chassis lube a 2010 chevy malibu

You are not taking a boot off the grease fitting. The little rubber boot you're removing is the dust boot for the bleeder valve on the brake caliper. The 2010 Chevy Malibu,as with most cars, have non-serviceable suspension parts.

While changing the oil on my 04 envoy i noticed what looked to be grease from passenger side cv boot splashed around the struts and lower control arm. i was unable to find any cuts or rips in the boots...

Unfortunately, the CV joint boot is about the only thing that is packed with grease that wouldn't cause noise early enough to hear anything. I would reinspect both inner and outer boots, probing them with a finger since a cut may not be that visible.
Replacing them isn't fun on most vehicles since the axle must be pulled from both ends to replace both boots. There once was a boot with a seam that snapped shut after positioning, but especially on any vehicle that ever goes 'off-road' would be likely to rip these off.

2001 TOWN&COUNTRY VAN WITH 3.8L engine, i found milky white or like white grease on the oil cap.what causes this problem

Water in the oil. If it is running right and feels good going down the road then it ought to be ok but if you feel like its missing then chances are you blew a head gasket. I have known some vehicles that develope that white milky substance on the oil caps and blamed it on condensation mixing with the oil. Changing the oil cap usually cures that problem.

The Turn signal doesn't work in cold weather. Do I need to replace a fuse?

The grease or lube that its used at the contact points, either the switch or relay, gets thicker when it gets cold. I assume that this is probably and older vehicle. As time goes by the lighter oil components of the grease, which keep it pliable, slowly evaporate making the grease almost putty like. When its cold its mutch more of a problem and want let the contacts work properly.
