At the risk of being harsh, the car sounds like it has been sorely neglected
to the point of turning it into a POS.
If you have learned anything from this, you may want to say to hell with it
and buy another. Take care of the next one.
If you have learned nothing then by all means, pour money into this junker

Seriously, you shouldn't let it get that far before you take action.
