Drive a Blown-Up Car
Get into a car. Drive in front of the desired car (to keep it front driving away) that you would like to drive after it's been blown up. THE CAR MUST HAVE SOMEONE IN IT. Walk up to the driver's side door. Enter the ''Blow up all cars'' code. While entering the code, Mr. GTA (or whatever his name is) will pull the driver out of the car and then get into it as it's blowing up and somehow he will not die. But as soon as you are in the car, enter the Health Code to extinguish the flame. It might not work the first time, so keep trying and eventually it will work.

Drive Without Traffic
Whenever you want to drive without the threat of traffic, rapidly change the camera viewpoints. Changing the camera like this can despawn the cars in traffic, making it easier to drive faster.
Furthermore, you can also continuously look behind while driving. If you know the roads well, this can also help since traffic generally won't spawn where you can't see it. (Of course, both tricks don't work for most police cars if you have a wanted level.)
Easy Kill in Vigilante Missions
Start a Vigilante mission. Once you get near the suspect's car. Hit pause, and then un-pause it. The suspect will jump out of the car for no reason. Now you can run them over.

Get into the subway when it's blocked.
Near the Traid Gang area, there is a subway entrance that is blocked off. It has stairs leading down to it. There is a ramp that causes you to fly over the small gap. But if you drive up very slowly then you will fall of the ramp and land on the stairs. If you done this correctly then you should go through the cage. You will now be in the subway. You will now be able to either take a train to another island or drive your car to another island through the subway. This glitch works well with a Police car or a Taxi.

Get To Third Island
At the first island drive your car towards the tunnel that blocks off the third and second island. Park the car right next to the blue wall and blow it up. You should be blown through into the third or second island.

Getting Into Unlocked Parts of the City
By using the ''Jumping Cars'' trick, you can access other parts of the city you can't in the beginning of the game, from the broken down bridges. Just go to the bridge you want to cross, and use the ''Jumping Cars'' trick when your just about to hit the edge of the bridge. You will then cross the bridge safely (might take a try or two), and be able to try out some new city life!

When you're doing the mission on Staunton Island for Ray Machowski called ''Gone Fishing'', you're supposed to kill the guy on the boat. If you stand on the shore with your sniper rifle and shoot him as he goes by, he may turn the wrong direction and beach himself.
If you shoot him as he's standing on the shore, the boat remains. Press the Triangle button as you would to get into any other boat, and press the Square button like you're reversing. The boat won't go too far, but if you keep holding the Square button down, eventually you can get back into the water, assuming the boat doesn't flip.
The boat handles REALLY well, goes pretty fast, and goes by the title of ''GHOST Missing''. If you dock it and shoot it to make it explode, it does explode, but it still remains as though it's new. You can't really see yourself inside the boat, as it was never meant for you to drive anyways.
Little thing, but it's fun.

Hospital to Shoreside Vale
If you want to get to the third Island and haven't earned it, you can ''fall'' into the underground passage. You'll need the Car Handling Cheat entered (R1 L1 R2 L1 left R1 R1 Triangle) and an esperanto. You must have an Esperanto - it's the only car that will jump high enough. First, get to the hospital in Staunton Island. then, go to the parking lot and go as fast as you can towards the Hospital. Make sure that you are on the left side of it... It's hard to do it without doing that. Jump onto the platform above the Hospital ''Entrance'' and go slowly straight to the square-looking wall. Go into it turning right, and go forward. You should fall out of the world and land in the underground passage. Turn right and go quicly to the beauty of Shoreside Vale. If you hit a blue wall, turn around and go.

Infinite Time for Fires in Fire Truck Missions!!!
To exploit this glitch it's just a matter of putting the fire out as the clock is going to hit 0. If done correctly, the timer will disappear allowing infinite time to cruise to the next fire.

Infinite Time in the Offroad Missions
This glitch applies to the missions Gripped!, Multistorey Mayhem, Patriot Playground, and A Ride in the Park. These are optional missions you can start by entering specific vehicles around Liberty City, and have the premise of collecting a set of checkpoints before a timer runs out.
In each of these missions, collect a checkpoint just as the timer reaches 0:00 - the timing can be rather precise and may take several tries. If done at just the right time however, the timer will disappear and you will have unlimited time to complete the rest of the mission!
Instant Completion of 100 Taxi Fares
For this glitch, you need to be able to do the mission "Ciprani's Chauffer" (a mission by Joey in Portland in the early part of the game). Bring a Taxi or Cabbie to the mission. While in the car, start holding the button to start the mission (R3 on PS2 and PS4, and whatever your side-mission key is on PC).
Continue holding it, and leave your vehicle. Start the mission and after the cutscene you'll be in control of a Mafia Sentinel. Continue holding the mission button as you drive to the laundromat in Chinatown. Park in the mission marker and watch the cutscene that occurs. After the cutscene, begin driving off to avoid being dragged out of the car, and release the mission button. A few secondes after this, you'll receive a message on your pager about the Borginine taxi being unlocked, confirming you have done the glitch correctly and tricked the game into believing you've managed to do 100 fares!
More cars in the garage
Go to any garage that can fit two or more cars in. When It is full, get another car right up next to the door, and get out. Press triangle as the door is going up, and hit X fast to get the car in. You might have to move the cars in the garage around, but it's possible to get up to 6 cars in any given garage.

Reset Radio Station Track

Run in the Sky
Take an ambulance to the top of Marco's Bistro in the St. Mark's area. It takes a bit of work, but you should be able to get it up the stairs eventually. Now, slowly back it up so that it almost rolls over the edge of the little wall, but not all the way. Now (quickly) find a car on the street and bring it in front of the ambulance so that you can jump on the ambulance's hood and then roof. While on the roof, jump towards the brick wall of the building. You should end up on an invisible ledge or roof and you can run around quite a large area before the invisible ground ends. Tip: Use a gun that you can aim manually to shoot the "ground" in front of you a bit. If there are sparks, then it's safe to walk, and if there aren't any than you will fall if you try to walk there.

Get a normal car and cruise the streets until you find a hooker drive up next to her (make sure she is standing next to the drivers door) and she will talk to you for a couple of minutes then she will walk around to the other side of the car and get in. Drive to a dark place (an alley, your hideout etc.) and park the car but do not get out. The car will start shaking and your health will go up. Then you have two choices:
1)Stay still and let her get out then beat her up to get your money back, or
2) tap the gas right before she gets out then park the car and watch the car start shaking again which saves time since it costs a dollar a second when she is in the car.
