Possible the battery is just too old, or it is damaged.
I would suggest replacing it.
no, losing the manual would not cause the car to use freon.
I would have the ignition module checked .
The fuse probably blew that controls the dashboard lights.
The fuel filter could be blocked.
Bad switch in steering column? diffrent fuses.
Stuck thermostat, clogged radiator.
Blown fuse, bad temp sensor, bad ground, bad fan motor
No. There would be a gasket between the head and the block, though.
Does it shake and stall when decellerating or at anytime? because mine seems to do that but its only when decellerating at a stop light or stop sign or whever and it dont always do it.. only after long drives. (1992 Pontiac Sunbird). It might be a bad EGR Valve.
sounds like t.c.c solenoid.[torque converter clutch solenoid]
