no there is'nt enough pressure underneath to make it leak try tighting up the valve cover bolts or just getting a new gasket about a $6.00 to $10.00 dollar fix depending on where you go

This is common if your throttle is electronically controlled and not cable controlled like (older cars). If the throttle body main butterfly sticks for a fraction of a second because it's cold and the throat is full of carbon, for safety the computer will kick it into that mode. This can also happen if the throttle sender unit on top of your throttle peddle is faulty ... or kicked and the plug is not all the way in. A simple code reader can reset the issue but if it happens again start by cleaning the throttle body.

give the interior door panel a couple of heavy thumps with your hand it may work again for a while the normal prob is caused by sticking/worn out motor brushes the shock releases them and the motor works again. if so then that confirms the motor needs changing. if not check the wiring/connectors to the motor, but the motor is most likely the cause. hope this helps.

Why won't key work in door? Most likely not used? Spray wd-40 in door lock and insert key moving it back and forth in a sawing motion. This will usually free up a sticky lock and you can then turn it. Most lock out companies use a long metal rod. They will pry back the top of the door where it meets the roof and insert a wedge to hold the door slightly ajar and then insert the rod which has a hook to catch the lock and unlock it. A coat hanger unfolded will usually do the trick with a little patience. If not, the only other way is to disassemble the inner door panel ( usually causing damage ) to get the door open

sounds like the latch actuator has failed, i dont think it has a seperate fuse for each door, you could check that you havent got a broken wire in the door wiring around the door hinge area. the actuator is part of the latch, but you may be able to get just the actuator which is easy swap over, check the wiring first, you could use a test lamp or circuit tester on the connector to the actuator to see if it being powered up when you press the plip. latch the door shut before testing, good luck.

You have a fault with ASC you need to get the fault code.

You don't say what model but the locks are not fused separately if the others are working it might be the latch

I have had the same situation with the 2000 VP. It eventually starts after several minutes. (Be careful not to over-crank the starter or it will overheat.) The engine starts very rough, smoky and sounds awful. Keep the accelerator at a point where the engine "catches". I suspect the problem is not electrical, but fuel injector / supply system. Perhaps a dirty fuel filter, etc. This has happened ONLY when the car has sat unused for two to three days. I have yet to ask my mechanic.

Depends in the mileage since the transmission was last serviced. It sounds like low pressure from the pump. It could be just a filter. You did not say where the leaking seal is, but a leaking seal will not fix itself.
