This sounds like the master cylinder has a problem with the check valves these are internal in the master cylinder. After removal of the master cylinder check to see if the rod coming out of power brake unit is threaded it may be to long and holding residual pressure in the lines keeping the front brakes applied. Testing for residual pressure is easy drive until locks up just turn bleeder screw without touching brake pedal if fluid sprays out fluid is not returning to master cylinder. good luck.

If you are moving down the road , car should not overheat. The fans only come on to provide air flow when not moving and engine hits a certain temp. If your vehicle overheats while driving , it could be a stuck thermostat or your radiator is pluged up. Water pump could be the issue too , but usually if they fail there would be a coolant leak clearly visible.

Your no start condition is either lack of fuel(doubtful since it used to restart) or no spark. No spark could be from a failed crankshaft or camshaft sensor.

The flashing light usually means the problem is serious enough to damage the catalytic converter. Have you checked the engine computer for trouble codes yet ?

lost speedometer, what does that mean 0mph at 50? ??????
YES, CHECK all fuses first. all cars, for any electric issues.

A./c lost, (ok there are 6 things that cut A/c some are normal)
one is HVAC dash blower fan must blow or AC brain cuts A.C
this prevent ICE up. (normal)
why guess? please stop guessing and throwing parts and cash.
what does lost all power, driving mean.???
lost engine power (cant drive)
or lost all electric power (a prime reason for EFI to die , for lack of 12vdc electric power)
does lights die on the car, at the moment of problems?
Dash cluster , head lights, any lights.
does engine STALL? (0 RPM is stall) 300 RPM is bad idle.
800 RPM is normal hot idle, never less.

if this is just and engine power issue, (cant drive at all ,or only slow or
slow up hills?)O
my car will not move fast,? in any gear? and transmission don't slip
and no DTC scan codes (checked and smart to do first)

I'd be all over fuel pressure. this is a $20 gauge , that must be connected to the fuel rail to read pressure.
28psi is minimum for all cars.
if i knew what engine was in your car, id look yours up
alldata.com has this info.

the ecu can not report wrong fuel pressure, it cant
so is always and issue, with total engine power loss.
so is skipping 60,000 mile FULL TUNEUP's

if you need those charts they are easy to get. for any car.

tell more get more.... regards

Since your friend just replaced the timing belt, there wouldn't be a need to replace the oil pump O-ring and crankshaft seal unless they were leaking.

No, you cannot get to the oil pump unless the crankshaft, lower timing belt cover and belt are removed.

I have the same exact car with the same engine and just replaced the oil pump O-ring and crankshaft seal. I'm a good mechanic, but this is a tedious and time consuming job, but It can be done if you have good mechanic skills.

There is a big chance that the car's engine timing will be off, have someone who is knowledgeable to set the engine timing. If you don't and try to start the car, serious engine damage will probably occur.

When you get the oil pump off removed all the old O-ring the new oil ring will not stay in place, I used petroleum jelly to keep the ring in place, it's perfectly safe and won't affect the operation of the oil pump.

If your not sure you can do the repair yourself, take it to a mechanic.
