Either you may be using a key that you had copied from the original or your chip went bad in your original key. Most of cars now a days have the key censor in the key so if it is the incorrect key it will not start your car or if it does not read that chip it will not start

your code is or the following. Fuel Pump Secondary Circuit Malfunction. This may involve removing your gas tank to fix. Go to the parts store and they can get you the parts you need and let you know for sure.

hi, the problem you are having is down to one of a couple of problems, now as you state the air blows cold then this points towards the thermostat not opening so this then dont pump the coolant round the engine resulting in the top half of the being hot and the bottom half cold so this is why you only get cold air.
so the first thing you should do is get the thermostat changed.
you also need to bare in mind that the problem could be a damaged water pump this does happen from time to time so check for any signs of water leak where the water pump is by the timing belt, if their is no signs of leak then the thermostat is the likely cause.
you also need to think that as the engine has over heated this could have caused the head gasket to fail so this will need looking at to if after changing the thermostat you have the same over heating problem.
so replace the thermostat as this has clearly gone and then when you re-fill the coolant make sure any bleed screws are undone if you have any on your coolant system usually located in one of the top hoses running around the engine, (not all coolant systems have one as many are self bleeding so dont worry if you dont see any bleed screws) now when you start filling the coolant up make sure you only trickle the coolant in to prevent any air lock building up in the system.
if you are unsure what you are doing then please leave this to someone who has some idea of the kind of work involved in this type of repair

You problem is most likely just lifter noise. This is common with a lot of Ford engines with self adjusting lifters. Although lifter noise is bothersome it doesn't pose a serious problem. Unless your engine starts to miss or your gas mileage drops way off lifter noise is just an annoying problem.
I would recommend that you add some Sea Foam Engine Treatment($6-$8) to your oil. This is not an oil treatment it's more of an engine cleaner. If this works you'll need to add it every 2nd or 3rd oil change.
If this doesn't take care of the problem then depending on your engine you may have adjustable rockers that would allow you to remedy the problem. If not, your options are limited to living with it or replacing the lifters and possibly other valve train parts.

This year and vehicle are notorious for having suspension links fail due to corrosion. Look under the front end, there should be a short rod (sort of dog bone shaped) that connects vertically on each side. If one or both failed, you'll have a thumping or rattling sound. They're not expensive or hard to change. If not this, there could be any number of issues, especially on a 10 year old car. Wear items include ball joints, wheel bearings, struts, etc.
