It has air in the line. let ir idle with the radiator cap off for a little while and the air will work its way out. You may have bigger issues, but I do not think you need to clean heater core because you get heat sometimes. Do you see a lot of bubbles when you take the radiator cap off when running, head gasket if so.. You can take the cap loose while the engine is running, but not after you stop it, it will be to hot. Good luck

The door jamb is built into the door latch, that's why you don't see the old style door jamb switch. The door lock is also built into the latch. May have other issues with the door locks.

It will be the sensor that triggers the fan relay or the relay itself that may be defective.Pop the fuse box cover off ,the one above the battery and locate a fan relay,(there is high and low) take the cover off the relay and push it down manually,this will test the fan circuit if the fan starts running when you close the relay manually.

It is typical problem and one of your most expert can diagnose it.That's why you should take it to a qualified repair shop . Sounds like you don't have any electrical trouble shooting skills . Short is in the wiring somewhere going back to the fuel pump . Not in the fuse box.

So what it only does it in park or neutral ! The vehicle starting circuit is only suppose to let it start in park or neutal . Park neutral safety switch won't allow B+ voltage to S terminal on the starter solenoid unless the vehicle is in park or neutral . It's probably the starter relay contacts stuck closed . You really should learn how it works before guessing as to the problem . Plus learn automotive electrical testing ! The ignition switch when turned to the start position send's a voltage signal to the PCM - engine computer .The PCM will energize the starter relay to crank the engine . PCM / ABS 10amp fuse in the I/P fuse box supply's B+ voltage to the park / neutral safety switch . When in park or neutral the B+ voltage goes through the control side of the relay to the PCM which will supply a ground to energize the starter relay .

Check the wires good, that go to starter. And the starter solenoid. Clean and tighten all starter wires. By by passing, and starting it direct tells me that there has to be a problem, in wires or ignition system. see if you have power to starter by testing the wire. Sounds like no click on start=no power to starter.

Open the hood and look down between the rad and the engine and on the large a/c line is the low side port right close to the exhaust manifold so you can burn your hand easily.DO NOT add Freon to this system.It requires 134a refrigerant only.Be aware of aftermarket "refrigerants" with a EXPLOSIVE sticker or label on them.They are usually a mix of butane and/or propane.You may not want these products in your a/c system because in a collision situation where your vehicle interior a/c components become damaged/ruptured,a vehicle interior fire may not be a good thing for you at that time.

Its an easy job if you use a replacement strut assembly with the spring installed.These are best as you get a new top strut mount which includes a new top bearing ,a new spring and of coarse the new strut. 3 bolts at the top and a sway bar link to disconnect in the wheel well and 2 bolts at the strut/hub.If you do not buy an assembled strut DO NOT try to remove the spring without a GOOD spring compressor!!!!

Make sure the vehicle is safely on jacks,remove the wheels,remove the calipers (DO NOT REMOVE THE BRAKE HOSES FROM THE CALIPERS) and remove the caliper mounting brackets.The rotors should now almost fall off with a rap of a hammer at the hub area.
Make sure the hub is free of rust and dirt before installing the new rotors.On reassembly ALL BOLTS must have THREAD LOCK applied to their threads as is factory procedure.
Apply high temp silicone brake lube on caliper sliders and behind brake pads to eliminate squealing noisy brakes.

Usually it is a broken wire on one of the front wheels making intermittent contact inside the wires own plastic covering but could be a failing ABS component like a wheel sensor.Check for any ABS codes stored to help lead you to the failing area/wheel causing the trouble.
