Check engine light

If car is sitting.still shove down hard.and it makes squeak

has a P0125 code insufficient coolant temperature for closed loop

just replaced the head gasket on my sons 2001 prizm. it will start and idle smoothly for 3-4 sec and then die. I have sprayed a bit of starting fluid through the intake and it will stay running while I do. also ;have checked fuel pressure on the rail and seems sto be more than adequate to continue to run. any thoughts. put a code reader on it and there are no codes. any thoughts?

Pouring fuel into the engine

when trying to pick up speed or even on highway going up hill engine revs up then let off the gas and then push gas again and it will catch this is a 5 speed

This is going to be used to charge phone and video cameras.

I bought both right and left front vendors, cause of the bottom of both of them are rotted away. would a garage put them on and how would it cost?

When turning left, the blinker won't run the same as if turning right blinker, also it sounds like it's going 100 mph

I bought the car a month ago and noticed right away that the steering wheel was angled to the right almost 30 degrees. If I let go of the wheel it immediately pulls hard left. It also makes a sound like its grinding or rattling. When I make left turns, even very slowly, it sounds like I'm squealing out. I've been told this is probably just a tie rod and alignment. The tires are fine and have good tread. What other possibilities could it be do you think?

Clip looks to be in good condition and according to local parts store gas cap is not a vented one.

I love this car, no problems otherwise.
