Question Answered: 

Your fuel line runs under the vehicle then up over the engine to the injectors and fuel rail. I would suspect the line is cracked somewhere on this rise to somewhere at the top rear of the engine compartmrent.

You can get the code read at an Autozone for free. As long as the vehicle is still running smoothly, you should be able to make it home. How far do you have to go? When code is read post result on here to further assist you.

Question Answered: 

Cleaning the MAF sensor does not mean it is working properly. If it was failing, it needs replaced not cleaned. Also, have a shop check exhaust flow. You may have a partially plugged cat. converter which would cause these symptoms.

Question Answered: 

Have exhaust system and cat. converter checked for possible poor flow\partially plugged condition. This will cause backpressure and poor running. Is your check engine light on?

Check for a vacuum leak. Get a carb. cleaner and while vehicle is running, spray the intake hoses and listen for engine surges. If you spray and hear one, you have found your leak and replace that line.

Question Answered: 

Find your starter and starter solenoid and while turning ignition tap firmly (but don't beat on it) on the starter and solenoid to see if the engine turns over and starts. Be very careful the vehicle is immobile so not to get hurt doing this. Yes, you will need an asssistant to do this.

Sounds like the problem is either in the transmission or the transfer case (front differential). Probably best to take to a trans. shop for this issue.

Question Answered: 

You probably have a few problems such as: thermostat, gaskets and maybe a radiator leak as well. If it is not holding antifreeze, it is probably too low already for the sensor to read it. Need to take to shop to find the leaks and probably a coolant pressure system test as well.

Question Answered: 

It is possible that you have a hole or crack in the exhaust system (probably near a sensor) that keeps tripping the exhaust temp. sensor. Need to inspect and look for cracks or holes or take to a shop.
