My drivers side door will not open from the outside. I have removed outside door handle and all looks fine. It seems to be in the latch or striker at the bottom. When opening from inside I have to give a slight push to open door. Has anyone had this problem or know whats going on? Thanks

I can't evaluate your latch but I have seen many doors with the the old style "pin body striker" stick due to the tapered pin sticking in the reciever. Verify that the pin is hitting on the center of the whole and adjust accordingly. The real need though is for a little grease on the pin. A dry pin will stick even if hitting the hole on center.
