Question Answered: 

Usually fan near belt side only turn on when running a/c (i think). turn on a/c and see if engine temp lowers when getting hot.

Replace spark plug wires or if none replace coil boots. Could be problem too with one or more coils. If has fuel filter replace or have fuel pressure tested.

Question Answered: 

Fuel pressure sensor usually located at top of fuel pump assembly. I wouldn't expect this to be problem though even with check engine results given that problem. Sounds like a leak in evaporative emmissions system. Maybe hose or purge valve problem.

Question Answered: 

could also be simple hose leak. Look for small green cap on hose in engine compartment- usually on drivers side. inspect hoses from there to intake. If hoses good may want to replace purge valve (small motor unit near that green cap) This pulls vapors out of tank and pushes to intake. I'd do that before spending money on any service. Good luck!

Also sounds to me like lifter problem. After you do flush may want to up your oil weight to 10w-30 if not already. May want to also add some Lucas oil treatment too- if so though i've found synthetic one works much better but like $17 a quart at autoparts store.

It could but I'd rely on your computer to recognize problem. If this sensor bad should put up check engine trouble light on dash. If so take to Autozone and if diagnosis points to that sensor- replace it. If not light on suspect fuel pressure.

Big question is there power to pump? If not maybe reset button or relay. Also could be oil pressure switch cuz will disable if no oil pressure.

Question Answered: 

Check your power steering fluid level first. If ok and no leaks than probably power steering pump. Usually will make "wine" noise when fluid low or if full than suspect pump.

Question Answered: 

Another name for that part should be a purge valve. Not sure on this model but most easy to find in engine compartment. Look for a little green cap located on hose that comes from fuel tank and part usually near that. Inspect your hoses carefully on that line especially near the valve. Might just be small crack or disconnect of hose. If not leak i'd replace valve. Will lack power with this problem- motor relies on the evaporated fuel from tank.
