My 1998 Hyundai Tiburon FX has a lot of problems. Big ones first, I was toldit needs a transmission/overdrive/speed sensor because when you first start it and go it gets to 5000 RPMs before getting out of first gear, sometimes it will jerk, other times it doesnt. It only does this about 3 times after you first take off then its done until you turn it off and back on and take off again. After it does its first gear thing, the gas pedal gets a huge lag in it and you have to put it to the floor just to take off. While driving it roars, was told a wheel barring, but when jacked up the wheel has no give when shook up and down, was told it may be a rotor or something else since it needs an alignment. It needs an alignment, it pulls to one side and pulls harder and sudden if you step on the gas, then it returns to how it was before you took off when you let off the gas, and since it needs an alignment, my brand new toyo tires are now bald on the outside edges in the front. The biggest pain my my but is my turn signals though. They were working fine even though I need a bulb on one side and a socket and bulb in the other. They of course blinked fast to let me know one was out. But now, they dont work at all, not on the outside or the inside on the dash. If I try to use them, the switch on the inside of the car works, it will kick off after you turn just as it would if they were working. My hazards dont work either. I checked fuses for both and the fuses were fine. After I mess with the fuses under the hood and inside the car, they will sometimes work again for a little while, then bam! Nothing again. It was burning oil fast but now not as fast as it was because I put an additive in it for cars burning oil fast. I really just need to know whats wrong and if all of this is worth fixing or should I give up.
