I'm only answering this now because Repair Pal has sent it to my email, because I'm in your area. There is not much more to say other then that I agree with Pushrod. If you really need someone to look at it for you I would be happy to, just let me know. And to you Pushrod I really hate to come on and just agree, with a good answer. But I didn't want to ignore a request sent from Repair Pal either, Sorry Brother.

It is possible that the cooling system still has air in the system and coolant is not reaching the ECT sensor. This would send a false signal to the fan saying the engine is hotter then it really is or the ECT sensor could be bad also.

the gooseneck going into the tank has a valve in it, to stop gas from being stolen or leaking out if rolled over. That valve is spring loaded to close when you are not pumping gas into the tank. It must be sticking, or stuck near the closed position. You will have to remove the filler tube and repair or replace as needed.

Question Answered: 

Sounds like a damper door or the motor to control it is not working. you will have to look under the dashboard along the heater box and locate the motor to see if it is moving the arm door or not. Then go from there check voltage is getting to the motor if it isn't moving. If it is getting voltage but not working replace the motor, if it is working and the arm is moving but the door has no change you will need to replace the damper door.

Sounds like the Alternator is over charging your battery, the voltage regulator inside is not keeping the voltage at the correct voltage. It may have already damaged your battery as well, take it to your local parts store like Advance, AutoZone, O'Reilly, they will test both parts for you free of charge.
