Question Answered: 

It is the intake manifold runner control (IMRC). This is located in the intake manifold on the passenger side. The power steering pump and alternator are close to it making difficult to access. The control solenoid is bolted to the head right by the fuel rail.

Question Answered: 

The bulbs in the display are probably burnt out. Need to pull display and replace the bulbs. The bulbs are usually dealer only so, you will probably have to get them there. If you have a matching bulb in another area of the display, You can swap them to make sure it is the bulb that has failed.

Question Answered: 

Try putting a gallon of gas and starting the vehicle. If the fuel level sender (the float) is failing, you may indeed be out of gas. After putting the gas in, turn the key to the accessory/run position but do not try to start. Do this about 3 times to reprime the fuel line if you are actually empty. Then try to start the vehicle. Otherwise, the fuel line could have had water get in since it was very low and now the fuel line froze up.

It could the wire itself to cylinder #4 is bad. While running, disconnect number #4 ignition coil harness (carefully) if the vehicle stays running the same, you know #4 is not firing and will probably need to change the wiring. If you have a rotten egg smell coming from the exhaust, the cat. converter could be failing throwing this code. May need get diagnostic from shop to determine.

Question Answered: 

Sounds like the catalytic converter heat shield could be loose. Easy fix with a couple 'tap' welds. Otherwise, look for broken stud bolt on the exhaust somewhere.

Question Answered: 

Sure, it could be an oil leak. Check oil level, if it is good, you can still add a detergent additive to help clean anything sticking and see if it quiets down. If it low, refill to proper level and monitor to see if it is dropping. If so, you will need to locate the leak for further diagnosis.

Question Answered: 

No ghost...sounds like a frayed wiring harness behind the dash. You will need to pull the radio and some of ther paneling to get a good look. Usual culprit wires are one of the mains rubbing against the sharp edges of the radio mounting bracket.

Multiple possibilities. Warped rotor or poss. broken belt in tire, tire balancing problem, alignment issues. Also, bad tie rod or ball joints in suspension. Best to have a suspension shop check and diagnose. Even busted motor mounts.
