Usually this is a symptom of oil starvation. The oil is not returning to the top of the engine fast enough. Sometimes the oil drains in the heads are clogged and the oil can not flow to the crankcase and be returned to the top of the engine. You may need to run an oil cleaner. You may have a problem with the oil filter check valve and need a Ford oil filter. The proper weight of oil is also necessary. After the oil warms it will flow better.

A mechanic can remove the oil pressure sender, temporarily install an oil pressure gauge and really find out what your pressure is doing.

Everything that is heat and cooling in a vehicle is controlled by vacuum from the engine. It appears to me that your blend door vacuum line to the temp control switch is either off or cracked/broken and not making things work the way you want/expect. It's the vacuum friend.

Attached is a link to the owners manual, the fuel pump reset switch (AKA Inertia switch) is behind the kick panel on the passenger side, there is a hole to reach the button. To view the switch and the location go to page 170 of the pdf owners manual. http://www.fordservicecontent.com/Ford_Content/catalog/owner_guides/99mntog1e.pdf

Worn drive line parts like universal joints will clunk as well as transfer cases problems, have it inspected on a car lift for worn parts. As far as the vague description of a transmission concern not sure what to tell you, maybe the transmission is in need of an overhaul. Do you have a check engine light or OD light flashing on the shifter?

Security is tricky on these. Any thing you replace, except the receiver or wire has to be programmed at a Ford dealer. Security consists of the key,receiver,wiring, the BCM, or PCM. Also add a tow bill to this.

I do not understand what the problem is here? If no one flashes you why do you think the head lights need adjusting?

Does it feel spongy when you press on pedal ? Sounds a lot like air in the hydraulic lines. Bleed the entire system again and check for leaks in all the lines. Maybe the bleed screws are loose.

There is no one fix for this fault, you need a smoke test done to see if there really is a leak or it is a sensor malfunction, that takes a skilled tech to figure out what and which is the cause. This code can be a real nightmare to diagnose..
