I'd want to see data wile the car is running. When were the upstream sensors changed? What brand rear sensors did you buy? What does the computer think the engine temp is? Verify it as well.
Could be the master cylinder or the brake booster. You need to have it looked at soon.

Your car needs service Frank. Take her to someone before huge money problems surface. We see it all the time when people won't service the higher end European vehicles and then can't afford the repairs.
We need to see it for a proper diagnosis. We're in Vallejo, Concord and Dublin if we can be of further assistance.
Call Milt's Service Garage in Vallejo. They can top off fluids with special funnels. Brakes are too important to leave unattended. (707)643-7548
Get owners manual out. Why was rapid used? Why did you press the phone button? We would need to check for power to the head.
Pan or tail shaft probably. Call Jon at Dublin Auto Repair and make an appt. (925)828-0243
You need to get the car's stored code first. Diagnose from there. Could be anything from fuel filter, fuel pump, vacuum leaks, never been tuned up, etc...
Mileage is only one part at 90K miles, time is the other. You only get about 6 years out of a timing belt before you risk failure and an ruined engine When replacing the timing belt on the V6 you should replace the water pump as well. Timing belt kits are now sold with a water pump, idler and tensioner pulley plus the timing belt. It takes 4 hours to replace and does cost about $850-1000 depending on additional parts like new serpentine belts, plugs, wires, air, cabin filters...The dealer will tell someone one over the phone that the job is far less expensive then lower the boom when they turn over the keys. No surprise there.
