check the pressure before the fuel filter, if you get readings in the mid to high 50's replace the filter. If still low replace the fuel pump. 20psi is not enough pressure to open injectors. Also check fuel pressure regulator and reyurn line check valve.
I'm pretty sure that year had a cable that runs from the key switsh to the parking pawl. this is a safty feature to be sure the car is in park, before you can remove the key or start. Check to be sure it is not broken or come loose. Newer cars now use the brake switch or electronic lock for the same purpose.

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.
Have you done a FUEL PRESSURE TEST ? it is possible that you are getting fuel but not enough pressure to open the injectors. Try that and let us know your findings, could be the problem is your fuel pump, fuel pressure regulator, or fuel filter.
check your ignition control module, it receives commands from the PCM, crank and cam sensors, to tell cylinders when to fire.
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.
The fast cranking and no ignition sounds like possible timing belt jumped time. Could also be the reason it was running fine before you shut it off and fired off feebly then quit running.
