Hey Amber==It is hard to say what is wrong with the door. It depends on what kind of car it is on but I would take it to a mechanic who knows about doors. GoodluckJoe

To fix a car door that is sprung due to a bent or damaged hinge, the best thing to do is replace the hinge. If the hinge is welded and not bolted to the vehicle, the entire door will have to be replaced.

I'm taking a guess that your door latch stuck because it's cold , if so , pull your door release lever on the inside of the door and see if you can move the latching mechanism on the end of the door with a screwdriver or anything that will keep you from getting grease on your fingers

Can you get inside the car and remove the interior panel of the door that is stuck ? If you can remove that panel you will be able to manually pull the door catch (And then open the door and have the door latch fixed properly)

There is usually a label stuck to some part of the driver's door or door opening that tells the year that the car was made.

There is a sensor (usually located on the inside of the door frame) that needs to be pressed in to let the car know that the door is closed. Try pressing and holding the door shut to see if the dome light turns off. If it does and you let go of the door, then the button is not being engaged. Maybe it is stuck. Use some WD-40 on it. As for the stuck door, take off the door panel and spray WD-40 on it to make it easier on the door lock mechanism to operate.

To fix a trunk latch that is stuck open, the teeth on the lock may have to be adjusted so the trunk will close. It is also possible that the cable for the trunk latch is broken. To fix the gas cap door latch may require a little bending and adjusting with a pair of pliers.

Have you tryed to put a screwdriver in the "hole" where the door striker would go and as you pull the handle up push the screwdriver out. As if you were going throught the motions of the door opening but the screwdriver acts as the striker.

the car door must be open almost all the way, for the gas door to release

That would depend on why it is stuck. If the problem is with the latch mechanism assembly, you have to remove the door panel from inside the car ( loads of fun with the door shut) and pop the latch open from inside. If the door is simply stuck shut because it's jammed on something, from the inside of the car, hold the door handle in the release position and kick it open without damaging anything.

One way of fixing a car door handle is by replacing it. Most of the mechanic shops sells the spare parts of different parts of the car. A car door handle can be bought in these shops and replaced.
