I believe the pump installed was either defective or mis-installed. In both cases the shop should replace it at no charge if they supplied the pump.
Good Luck!! Don't forget to rate this post!!

You really aren't going to go on the internet, and tell
the world, you believe your vehicle needs all that work,
are you???

You may have a torn CV Joint Boot,and as a result, the
joint failed from water entering it

You may have a water pump that leaks

Beyond that I hardly know what to say

Here's what you do
Find a new and reputable repair shop

You make sure you are physically in the service bay,
as well as under the car when it is on the lift

sensor or fuel pump,WITHOUT a scan tool or Oscilloscope
on the system,to prove what they are saying,with you
standing there,watching the scope graphics

NO WAY you have all those problems

Are you using a remanufactured pump? I had this problem with one, Had it on and off 3 times. Switched to a new pump, No more problems. I've used new pumps on these ever since. When they are rebuilt the reman company doesn't check the steel plate for flatness. If the last person who removed it bent it, It will never seal up. Try a new pump instead.

thanks for the good information

the air sound AND the hard pedal means you have a brake booster concern

if the car is running ok we can rule out vacuum leaks so that leaves the check valve but with the car running even a check valve wont cause the concern

therefore you need to replace your booster

semi-tough job because you have to remove the master cylinder and typically there may be some push rod adjustments afterward

depending on your level of experience you may want to seek professional assistance
