Frictional force because no body can move on the ground without frictional force acting in opposite direction to the motion of the body.

£F=ma,so if you considered air resistance=,Fx-(Fk+Fa)=ma,so Fx=ma+Fk+Fa,therefore ma+Fk+Fa that is Fx caused the car moved...

It is true that frictional force and air resistance are forces that contribute to the acceleration of a car, but these two forces are minute and opposes motion. The force that solely accelerate a car is generated from the car engine. The force generated here overpower the two opposing forces, therefore the car accelerates. And if otherwise the car will deccelerate and will eventually stop with time.

Force from the road

It is the frictional force the accalerating car overcomes due to the drag of the wind on the car that keeps it.

Yeah Initially friction with a small amount of inertia once moving. However if your talking about force as energy thats very different then it becomes the birth of the universe that moves the car :p
