Bit of a tricky one - car cutting out whist driving

Check the clutch switch (it tells PCM you have applied the clutch). It could be either the switch is acting, or the wiring (read connector) problem. It is just on top of the pedal assembly, same as the brake light switch. Also, with hestitant throttle response clean MAF with some brake cleaner (the ...

Tailgate Issue

The tailgates are both the same. The accident has thrown the rear of the car out of position and hence it does not fit.

There is a procedure to bleed the ABS unit by diagnostic equipment if it traps some air. However, if you fill the system properly and pressurize it while adding the brake fluid, it should drive the air out
