Sounds like you need to replace thermostat assy and add new antifreeze and as far as your oil gauge, replace the "oil pressure sending unit". That should solve your problem

Power steering fluid leaking and turning is hard need to know how to change pump and hose need to know how to change it myself


First check the hoses located at the back of the pump. They are the most likely culprit.
If the fluid is leaking from the hose, purchase a replacement from a local dealer or repuitable auto parts supply.

If it is not the hose and the pump needs to be replaced, first I would suggest buying a Chilton manual either on-line or from an auto parts store and follow the detailed proceedure in replacing the pump.

This should require open end wrenches and take an hour or so.

The Starter silenoid is probably what the problem is. And the knocking could that be a loose starter? The two problems doesn't seem connected.
