Default Re: Passive in the sentence ''I would like you to be doing something''

Here's some information, using American English grammar.
First of all, sorry to say, none of your examples are correct in American English.
Correct examples:
That car was made in Michigan. - passive voice, we don't know who made the car.
Chrysler made that car in Michigan. - active voice
I would like you to help someone. - active voice
You were helped. - passive voice, we don't know who helped you.
You were helped by Bill. - active voice
Bob will be helping me tomorrow. - future continuous, active voice
Anne will be done with her homework tomorrow. - active voice
I hope these help.
