Your dipstick is supposed to be hot. The oil runs over the hot mechanisms and back into the pan and cooler oil cycles through again. The warmer your engine the better it will run. ( don't want it to overheat though) my car runs about halfway between the middle and three fourths mark on the thermostat. And it runs great. Hope this helps!:)

Sorry no experience on the vehicle, but the symptom you describe seems like the engine is strangled - maybe a blocked CAT or crushed pipe.

If there is nothing obvious you need to go back to basics starting with the valve timing, fuel pressures and so forth. If it has fly by wire throttle, ensure the butterfly is responding and the air metering unit is good.

Late model intelligent windows might need a dealer intervention.

Usual way to reset auto windows is to open the window and hold the switch in the down position for several seconds (often a subdued click will be heard) and then raise the window holding the switch in the up position for several seconds or until the click is heard.

Check the lamp for supply and ground, check the connections to the lamp.
If there is no supply to the lamp you really need to check the wiring diagram to learn if the left brake light is supplied from the right as traditional or whether it is a multiplex system as many were by 2005.

Much depends on the radio - age, how and when it is illuminated and the wiring diagram, but even after those considerations it is unlikely a wire will have become disconnected...
The unit will probably have to be removed and repaired.

Don't know anything about them - maybe a foreign body in the gearbox, something bent or out of alignment or maybe the bearings are worn. The headstock bearings of some lathes are adjustable.
The use of a sonascope or a listening stick might help pinpoint the noise.

You said there is fuel at the rail but you didn't say if the pressure is good. If the pressure is good there is probably no signal to the injectors - check for wiring/connector faults, camshaft/crankshaft sensor.

I would crank the engine and spray a little ether into the intake - if it fires up on that you can be reasonably sure fuel is the only thing missing. If it doesn't momentarily spring into life on the ether it would be wise to recheck: everything, especially valve timing.

Sorry but I am not sure though it would make sense for the convection fan to cycle in sympathy with temperature fluctuations, or to stay on if the heat stays high.
To be certain you will need to revisit the operating instructions or check with the manufacturer or dealer.

If our assumption is correct the fan will be switched on by a strategically placed temperature switch, though if the stove or heater isn't ancient there is probably a circuit board in there somewhere.

sounds like u may have disconnected the abs sensor(s) on the front end at the wheel hub. check if the clips are connected tightly or look for any frayed or bare wires near the hub.
