The faults for the alarm system are normal because your car doesn't have those components installed, just the wiring to connect them.

Not sure but I thought coupes were the same except for removing the panel. On the sedan it is a bolt with very low profile head. 10mm or smaller.

Sulev has a longer warranty period on the emission related stuff. 15 years comes to mind, but that may be coupled with a 150k miles limit too. Google may find...

Technically turning off then back on clears it, but it returns as soon as the errors are detected. Auto tm or stick?

Honestly, I'd put a new water pump on there if you don't know how old it is. They're very reasonable at like $50-60 for a Graf with metal impeller. They average 60-100k before they start to leak...

This. ^. Wtf.

Those hoses don't do that. Er shouldn't. New hose. Those are crimped rings on there right? I guess you could hit it with a screw clamp?

Would probably be a good time to refresh the CVV/CCV oil separator at the same time as it gives a little extra room under the intake with the OFH and alternator out of the way. Clean the ICV and TB...

It fits on the little nub at the end of the gold-colored hold-down screw/plate on top of the battery. I couldn't see a grand purpose for it but put it back where it came from nonetheless.
