Check wheel bearings are not failing or loose. Check that the tyre has been fitted correctly to the rim. There may be a ridge in the tyre just out from the rim edge . Check to see that this is evenly spaced around the rim. Check inside also . This is a guide to see that the tyre is evenly placed on the rim and is not held up on the bead. It causes wobble and because the tyre is not fitted correctly will not have an effective seal between the bead and the rim hence loosing air. Have a tyre shop check

It could be a vacuum leak but could also be a number of other thing's . Having the vehicle diagnosed by a qualified repair shop with the proper diagnostic procedures and equipment would be the way to go . Not guessing an replacing parts. That can be costly .

Do you hear any squealing when you drive the car? If so the belt is slipping so yes. Replace it anyway because you don't want it to snap and Replace the battery. Retest the charging voltage you are looking for 12.7v to 13.9 if you don't have a multi meter take it to another garage and ask nicely if they could check the charging voltage most will not charge but you want the voltage NOT pass/ fail or its fine
I recommend this as some battery faults can give faulse charging readings

I believe you should just set the idle higher at the throttle body or MAF so it gets enough air and fuel to keep running. Those butterflies have to be cracked open a little to start with so it's getting enough air to run without you having to keep your foot on the throttle pedal.

the crank sensor is on the back side of the engine just above the oil pan there will be two sensors there one is the crank sensor and the other is oil presser sensor. All so check the wires from the crank sensor to the cam sensor. If you think it is the timing belt pull the cover and check it. hope this helps.

code p0622 refers to alternator ,field control-circuit malfunction causes--wiring ---alternator---battery---ECM. I would have the battery load tested first to check for loose for terminals and failing cells. Then check that the plug in the back of the alternator is tight

Did you replace every with the belt? if so, pull the valve cover and check the cam journals. One at a time. If they are scored up, replace the head.

The oil light SHOULD come on if the engine is not running and the key is on. That is how it would warn you if the engine lost oil pressure. So that is normal.

But you really should get the little car fixed or it may fail you when you can least afford to have it quit.

There are several things that could cause this. If the air filter is clean, my first guess would be a sensor on the engine is nearing the end of its useful life. Some auto parts stores will run a scan for free, because they think you will be grateful and buy their parts. Start with that and see what the scan shows.

Misty, if automatic check the transmission fluid level and top up if necessary. Take into a good shop for diagnoses(codes) and estimate on repair if needed. Could be transmission valve body or other internal problem causing pressure loss, maybe solenoid issue.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

It's difficult to diagnose a fault without seeing the car...
..but that sounds like sensor at fault.. fuel/air mix sensor or maybe a temperature sensor It sounds as though your car is getting too much fuel for the amount of air ... but .. also check your air filter..)

A workshop should be able to do a diagnostic check for you
