Hi and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action I strongly suggest that you manually put back the lever while you put the seat on the desired position. Sometimes the adjustment lever fails to go back so you will have to do it manually.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Seat Position Cant be moved

The manual lever to release the seat is supposed to have a spring on it to return the release lever to the lock position, if the lever does not spring back when you let go of the seat adjustment lever then you know there is a missing, dis-connected, or broken return spring.

If this is the case try putting the seat where you want it to be and make sure that the adjustment lever returns to the lock position, now check to see if the seat will lock in with the adjustment lever in the lock position.

If it does lock in repair or replace the return spring.

Make sure that the adjustment lever is attached to the locking linkage and it does move the locking mechanism.

If it still does not lock into place then there is something wrong with the seat locking mechanism, and some WD-40 sprayed onto the seat rails and track might release a stuck mechanism, and if everything seems to be working alright, and you can see that the locking mechanism in the seat rail is moving in and out of the lock position, then the locking tabs are most likely sheered off and you will need to replace the seat.

Also look under the drivers side seat and compare the lever position and the linkage connections with the passenger side seat, and make sure that it is all operating like the drivers side seat.

1995 mitsubishi mirage engine wobbles and dies after heating up.

It could be that the valves need adjusting or redone. When they heat up it swells the rubber and the metal. If you have a bent valve it should do it all the time or it could be one of the valve springs is going. Either way it sounds like it is something in the valve or the valve seats or the springs.

2001 VW Beetle. The driver's front seat adjuster

I'm assuming you have manual adjustment seats. There is a spring underneath the seat that locks the end of the lever into corresponding notches in the seat frame rail. That spring has either fallen off or broken.

Seat travel

not really but, it can be modified if nothing is binding the seat travel.
Almost all cars use 4 bolts to hold the seat to the floor boards. You maybe able to drill a new set of holes to move the seat back as required.  Remember to use lock washers and tighten the nuts tight as you don't want the seat to wobble.  Also some cars the pedal set adjustable in position

Front seat springs

the spring is for height adjustment. all other functions will still work. the only fix is to replace the seat frame which is very expensive. you can actually still adjust the height but not while you are in the seat your weight will keep it from raising. Just remove the spring so it doesnt jam under the seat and everything else will continue working fine.
