The drivers door electic window lowered but will now close can i manualy close if so how thanks

You likely have a bad switch. To close it requires the door panel be removed, the motor be removed from the window regulator, the window raised to desired position and then the motor put back in to lock window in place, a real pain.

My camry v6 emits black smoke and jerks in traffic, what is the cause and whats the solution?

You have three things to check Firstly,check all the vacuum lines going from the motor to the firewall, these cause the motor to vibrate violently at idle position because some times they become loose. Secondly,check the throttle body,there is a buy pass valve that gets so gummed that it will stick in the open position and there will be no power (no turbo boost) some times you can just lightly tap it and it will close(you will see it close).
Thirdly and lastly,check the tubing going to the inter cooler, it's very low to the ground and very easy to knock loose when you run over some thing.

2004 blower motor stays on with ignition off

Check the blower resistor, the built in relay can stick closed allowing the blower to run in the high position when the key is turned off. The connector can also burn together.

The drivers side door won't close.

open the door , look at the latch on the door , as it get older and non lubricated , the latch can stick in the locked position , i,m going to draw a picture .

when the door is open it should look like the picture , i suggest your door is in the closed position and why it bounces off as you say , take a , lets say a screw driver stick it in where the little lever thats sticking up , push the door open button on the outside door handle , pry that lever forward , if successful try it , and lubricate it , hope my barbaric picture gets the point across .
