Last year my engine blew in my 2002 Volvo S40. I had the engine replaced but since then the automobile will not start without giving it some throttle, it cuts out at junctions etc. and is not idling correctly. I have twice replaced the camshaft sensor, but again the camshaft fault will appear after another number of weeks. Having the faults removed will ensure smooth running for a number of weeks before reverting to the same issues. What do you think the issue could be?

My Toyota Corolla broke down on the M8 while driving to Dublin. Had the automobile for seven years no problem. It gave a clicking sound a few times and then suddenly started slowing down. I stopped by the hard shoulder and opened the bonnet to see smoke coming out of the engine. I got the oil indicator and thought it needs oil. I topped it up, but now the automobile won't start. I called breakdown assist who took me to the nearest garage. It just doesn't start now. What is wrong with my automobile?
