Alright, This isn't a mechanical problem, but more of an inconvenience really, nothing that will hinder my car's performance.
But, anyway, my problem is dealing with the radio. The radio has the 6 CD changer and stock Bose speakers option(in case this has something to do with my problem). The radio itself works fine, BUT i can only get a limited number of stations. I can't manually tune my radio for specific stations in my area, even though the seek should pick them up, because they have crystal clear reception, and it's quite annoying. do i need to recode my radio to pick up these other stations? or is there another button i need to press before doing a manual tuning? or is there something else i need to do? If nothing else works, im probably going to end up buying a in-dash stereo kit. If someone else has or has had this problem, let me know on how i would go about fixing it.
Mine used to do the exact same thing. it probably has to do with the singla strength. i just tuned in manually, then i just got an aftermarket stereo, but it does the same thing. it doesnt pick up every single station there is, clear or not clear.

If the tire on the rim is still holding air and the rim isn't obviously bent it should be alright if you go nice and slow but would still be a better idea to put a spare on it if you got it. Slamming off the road though it's possible you just threw it out of alignment which would be great, but then again you could have bent part of your steering linkage.
Air conditioning is one area where the owner generally is not qualified or equipped to perform the necessary repairs. If you are overheating and the ac isn't cooling I would check the condenser (radiator in front of the engine radiator) and made sure it's not obstructed. Also make sure that the electric fan comes on when you engage the A/C. Beyond that there isn't much you really can do except have an professional run a diagnostics on the system.
The ABS & Trac came on because that system has issues
There may be stored data, if not a code present
The mechanic has to component test to find the problem
These guys spend too much time with a scan tool & I
think some of them are waiting for it to tell them something
Doesn't work that way. If everything goes as it should, the
scanner shows what the computer sees,that's all,& that can
be a lot,but you have to move on & use different skills that
not everyone has learned yet apparently
Try another shop
That really isn't a diagnostic test etc,just looking at data
stream,if they see nothing out of range they quit
That doesn't help you any,the problem is still there,intermitent
maybe, but there.
If your starter is turning, but not engaging, your start is more than likely stuck. Replace your starter and you should be alright. You could try tapping on the starter with a hammer to try and dislodge the starter gear, but this doesn't always work, and is very inconvenient.
this could really be anything, broken timing chain, faulty fuel pump, faulty ignition system, it will need to go to a mechanice to be checked with a code reader to find the fault, most mechanics won't charge to have a look, its just very inconvenient for you to tow, perhaps consider a mobile mechanic. sorry couldn't be any more help. Good luck
YOU MAY HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE ANTENNA. THERE ARE 4 ANTENNAS IN THE REAR WINDOW FOR BOTH AM AND FM SIGNALS. THERE IS AND UNIT CALLED A DIVERSITY BOX UNDER THE REAR HAT SHELF THE CONNECTS THEM ALL AND DECIDES WHAT ANTENNA IS GETTING THE BEST SIGNAL. THAT UNIT MAY BE FAULTY. BEST TO HAVE IT CHECKED BY SOMEONE WHO KNOWS THE SYSTEM OR TAKE IT TO A DEALER. MIGHT BE CHEAPER THAN BUYING A NEW AFTERMARKET RADIO.
