Lori, im NOT sure about an answer. If you will post your state or email me, I will try to give you state specific advice. Naybe someone else will answer for you who already knows.
Cannot imagine that the process would be different than if the person was alive. The estate would be responsible for remaining loan amounts.
It depends on you locatily, but in general, yes, if you are behind on your payment, your vehicle can be repossessed.
by paying the bill or rebuy it at an aucton
Pay off the lien is the simplest way. That can be done by selling the vehicle. Hopefully it is worth more than the loan amount, so the estate will have additional assets.
it doesn't matter if the pope takes over your vehicle payments. if he stops making them, your credit is damaged and the vehicle is repossessed.
Obvious answer, Yes.
Technically (and leagally) yes.
Yes, it can.
