"Az kocsi" is wrong isn't it? "A kocsi" would be correct.

When I asked about the word order... here is an ecample : why not "az autó áll kint..." sometimes we have "áll kint" and sometimes " kint áll" but when???

That depends on what question you want to answer. Remember that the focus, the important part, is the item in front of the verb:

  • Az autó kint áll. - Where is the car standing? Outside.
  • Az autó áll kint. - What is standing outside? The car.

In this sentence you want to answer that first question, saying that the car is outside, and then defining the exact location more closely.
