I have n o clue what breed your pup is, but 4 Months is still a pup, so it seems you've had a set back in training. Perhaps her crate is too large? She also needs to think of the crate as her "den", safe space. As for the car, you might want to try using ice for a couple of hours before hand (she can lick it to avoid thirst, but will avoid a full bladder). Make sure you go back to the start and make sure to reward her for going on command.

On average a pup can only hold it's urine for one hour/month of age, 3 months=3 hours, 4 months=4 hours, have you considered getting up in the night to let her out? Then as she ages lengthen the amount of time until she is able to hold it all night.
