Having problems with your 2003 Chevrolet TrailBlazer ?

So I have a couple codes reading po128, and I know thats a coolant deal (hopefully, I haven't checked yet), and the other, is code po442, evap emission, small leak. I have a 2001 Chevy S-10 and need to smog it in the next couple of weeks. Will these issues prevent me from passing smog? I understand they need to get repaired, but my biggest concern right now is the smog check.

Drivers Seat Track part need Is the seat track specific for the Mark VIII OR will another model's seat track work? (i.e. T'bird, et al) Worst case scenario...is there a manual seat model that would line up with the existing seat rails, even as a short term fix?

My 1998 Chevy Suburban is having A/C issues. We keep recharging it and it works good for at least the day and park it. By the next week when we use it the air is not as cold as it was. Sometimes the air is really hot, sometimes it gets somewhat cool. Now the rear a/c is always hot when the front feels fairly cold. I am not sure if this is two seperate problems or the same one. I would really like a diagnosis, and if possible vague help on what I need to do to cost effectively get my a/c running
