Is your question "Why does my car start sometimes and sometimes it doesn't?" It could be many many issues- which i why your mechanic is having trouble figuring it out. I would first check to be sure your battery is in good shape. if it's more than 8 years old it needs to be replaced.

What keeps blowing my fuse and overheating my Nissan Sentra 2006 1.8 Edition?

It sounds like you have no experience at all with troubleshooting or repairing cars. So providing you any suggestions here will not help. You need to take your car to a reputable, qualified mechanic and have it evaluated to determine what problem(s) you have and how much it will cost to fix it. Continuing to drive it now will lead to total breakdown very soon.

What is the problem with my mazda sting 160i 2002 model as soon as i use electrics like lights, wipers etc, the battery runs down. i've replaced battery, regulator and alternator 3 times already. It runs...

It sounds like something is drawing current 24 hours a day. When driving, the alternator keeps everything working. After you turn off the car, the battery is being drained by a short. The short can be anywhere, wiring harness, electrical connection points, etc. Have a mechanic check the current draw on the battery when the car is not running. It should draw a very small amount of current to keep the clock working. This will prove or disprove a electrical short. It is much harder to find the short. It can be expensive to fix if it takes hours to track down the problem. I would give the mechanic a time limit for diagnosing the problem to limit your out of pocket expense. There is nothing wrong with the battery or alternator. If they cannot find the problem within a reasonable amount of time. Trade in the car and buy another one. You do not want to spend thousands of dollars in repairs on a 12 year old car or a car with over 120,000 miles. I know you already put a lot of money in your car. Sometimes it is better to take your losses now than to keep putting more and more money into a car that is nearing the end of its useful life.

Toyota repair

check for a loose electrical connection or a faulty stop solenoid on the pump or injector controls if common rail . It sound that the stop control has an intermittent continuity problem ( broken wire-dirty connection---bad earth site etc)

Fuel pump fuse keeps blowing on my 95 Crown Vic

Using a smaller fuse should make the problem happen more often.
A mechanic would unplug the pump harness at the tank and check the circuit for high resistance or a short to ground.
If nothing is found in the harness, I would suspect the pump in the tank.

05 Saturn Ion won't start

Without doing testing we'd only be guessing ,having a qualified repair shop run diagnostic's on it would be your best bet .
003 Engine Peformance Tests Scan Data Tests
Rigging the vehicle's isn't fixing it . This can cause problems your not aware of. Do yourself a favor an have it fixed correctly

Starting my neon and keeping it running.

I believe you should just set the idle higher at the throttle body or MAF so it gets enough air and fuel to keep running. Those butterflies have to be cracked open a little to start with so it's getting enough air to run without you having to keep your foot on the throttle pedal.

I recently had repairs done to cylinder head due to timing belt failure, caused by faulty tensioner. I now have the problem of too much pressure in the cooling system including bubbling water in reservoir....

sometimes when u drain the cooling system,and refill(change waterrpump,radiator,thrmo)u get trapped air in the system sometimes theres a bleeder screw usually on the thermostat housing,any way u gotta relieve the trapped air best way is to take off radiator cap put heat on high,start the vehicle wait till thermostat opens once and closes usually it will start spilling out the top thats fine let it run 4 like 7 to 8 mins refill recap check it out hopefully thats all it is

you are having a fuel delivery problem...and it could be caused by numerous things...such as a bad fuel pump, a bad cold sensor or warm up injector.  You haven't attempted to  solve any of these suspected take it to a mechanic for repair

Batterty dead. Check engine light/Antifreeze pouring

The main problem could be a well known cobalt ignition issue. check all fuses, wires, and connections if you've worked on cars before and call to see if you still have any warranty left. This should be handled by a chevy dealer or chevy trained isolate the issue fast and avoid repeat visits to get er done.

Car takes 4-5 seconds to start

Dunno if this is related but my E class had a similar problem before when I first bought it. It had difficulty starting and sometimes it just fails to start and the problem was because the crankshaft sensor malfunctioned.
