Trunk door wont stay up by it self on chevy malibu 2003

Replace the struts on the trunk lid. There are two of them. Over time they lose the gas charge and cant bear the weight of the trunk lid.

Likely the TPS.. those cars were notorious for chaffing or breaking wires. The 02 code is likely a result of the bad TPS. Or, having a bad tps may have even clogged the sensor.

2002 mazda miata mx5 has strong gasoline smell in trunk. Had smoke test done at dealership and showed no leaks. Help.

The fill pipe is right back there. Check to see if a hose has been damaged. Check the spout area, is there a overflow pipe or a seam that could be leaking into the trunk?

Keys locked in trunk 1989 Nissan Stanza

You say you can't get into the car so you cant go through the backseat. Call a locksmith to open your trunk. Don't damage anything you will be sorry later. Should cost about $40.00. Or you can pop the lock out of the trunk. Call a locksmith.
