SOURCE: Check Engine light
that code definition is "Evap high purge flow fault". It means you may have a problem with the evaporative system. this system routes fuel fumes back to the fuel tank. If you want to try and clear this code, find the radio code for your car and then disconnect the battery for 30 seconds. Reconnect the battery and the check engine light should be out. You will then need the radio code to reset your car stereo. the check engine light may stay off if the condition was a transient one. If not, the light will come back on after you drive the car two drive cycles. That is: two starts, warm ups and shut downs. If the light returns, have a mechanic check it out.

the purge valve i believe is located near your gas tank unless theyve moved it i should look like a little canister cyclinder shaped. both codes could be set off by the same problem. try replacing the valve.

before changing any more parts there are grounds on the engine that need cleaned one on the back of intake manifold then you have to remove battery tray clean up the ground there then clean where the tray bolts up as this aids in chassis grounding remove ground cable from bellhousing before you reassemble install star washers btween cable ends and where they bolt up this will dig into ground surface and cables making a better ground then remove turn signals in front there are two on right side and one on left side cleanup and star washer then there is the ground spots for the ecm inside removr kick panel on right side clean up and star washer if the starter doesnt work after this starter is probably bad but the other codes will probably clear out

I cannot help with the check engine light without knowing what the fault code is, however being you also have a funny noise in the engine compartment the two may be related. If you open the hood after you turn off the cars engine can you locate the source of the noise? I would check the coolant fans first as they can run after you turn off the vehicle.

SOURCE: My fan is not running,
is the fuse and relay for the fan ok !! make sure the fans are ok, by jumping fan connector from positive on fan to positive on battery. negative on battery to negative on fan. if fan works it could be a bad coolant sensor, or a themostat thats stuck open, not allowing coolant to get hot and thats why the electric fans do not work. the coolant will not get hot enough if thermostat sticks open. it will by pass the thermostat and never get hot. have a good day !!
