Picked up a fuel pump today and spent about an hour changing everything out. After priming it, the car started up like a happy dog. No gasoline smell, no leaks, no lights. :D

Thanks TacoBuster! That's pretty helpful.

Thanks everyone. I'll start with changing the fuel filter first since it's the cheaper part (it's about 50k miles old anyway) and report back.

That would make a lot of sense. No CEL makes this a head scratcher to troubleshoot. Fuel filter sounds like a great place to start. Thanks!

I knew I was missing something. Added Tie Rods. Thanks.

I'm sure mine are okay but given the age and mileage, I'd rather change these things out now rather than wait for them to fail.

IIRC, the sedans don't have the sub-frame issues their coupe counterparts do. I may be mistaken though.
