Mk4 gti vr6 has power but doesn't start, runs with pop start

Could be a number of things but may want to begin by checking wiring to starter, battery, or even the ignition switch. These components may not turn your engine light on.

2006 chevy cobalt will not start

I'm sorry to be the one to have to tell you this, but you are going to need a new engine. The connecting rods have welded themselves to the crankshaft, due to oil starvation. That is why it will not turn over, even with a new starter. I would take that starter off and return it for a refund. Just make sure it's clean and doesn't look like it has been installed'

1993 Dodge Dakota 5.2 318 4x4, turns over, but no spark. Cat converter shot, removed. Plugs, cap, rotor replaced. MAP sensor recently replaced...will start and run once in a great while.

Try switching the ASD Relay for another relay in the Fuse Box in the Engine Compartment. If the ASD Relay fails it cancels the power to the Hall Effect & Fuel Pump.
If that doesn't change anything, check the wiring harness that travels down the left wheelwell for damage, It actually goes outside of the engine compartment, into the wheelwell where it can be damaged by rocks, road debris or a tire (if you've flexed the suspension, or had the truck off road). If the wiring there checks out, it leaves one other thing.
The Hall Effect Sensor inside the Distributor.

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.

To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

Yes, a bad mount will cause rocking, also a misfiring engine will also cause engine rock, the power steering leak may by a hose that needs replacing but before any work is done i would have this overheating checked, maybe just a bad thermostant or a bad cooling fan but these things are not related, these are just normal maintance wear and tear things that happen, hope this is helpful.

Engine rocks when you decel quickly, like front motor mounht is gone, also when idleing sometimes attempt to stall but doesn`t if i sit longer i`m sure it will

it could be a sensor going out or your fuel filter is clogged i would start there and have the codes scanned on it.

Won't start, turns over but will not fire

check OBD1 for trouble codes
if you have engine cranking over and ample fuel, air and spark, time to look at the crank sensor. Rocks kicked up like to destroy them.
Again your post lacks lots of important details ie;
what size engine, when did it start giving trouble and was there anything leading up to its failure?
