Question Answered: 

Those cars have a habit of burning up their main/fuel pump relays. Usually they start when they are cold but not always. Other causes of no fuel/spark are crankshaft sensor failure, PCM failure(rare).

Is it that your trunk will not stay shut, or when you lock the car, you can still push the button and the trunk opens?

Question Answered: 

Wow. The MSRP for the manual transmission axle(half shaft) is over 500.00, the auto transmission axle is less than 200.00 with almost two hours labor. I looked into various parts suppliers and found the axle for the manual trans for around 250 but you get what you pay for. It depends entirely on who you employ in this case.

Possibly the starter motor. They tend not to work when hot and defective.

Question Answered: 

Must have the car scanned to find the defective component. Then replace it. It could be an occupancy sensor, an air bag module, a crash sensor and so on. A thorough computer scan just has to be done. Sorry.

What do you mean when you say the idle is fighting the brakes, and was the check engine light on before the brake problem occurred?

Question Answered: 

If improperly installed, yes. Have it pressure tested to verify.

Question Answered: 

Sounds like a hydraulic problem, probably failure of the clutch slave cylinder. You are looking at about 200.00 if they only replace that particular part. There could, however, be larger problems with the clutch pressure plate for example that can be VERY costly.
