in relation to the cruise control ????? There is no vacuum used for cruise control on your vehicle . Your vehicle has a computer controlled electronic throttle system .The powertrain control module (PCM) monitors the signal circuits of the cruise control switches in order to determine when to capture and maintain the selected vehicle speed. The PCM uses the throttle actuator control (TAC) module motor in order to control the vehicle speed. For further information on the TAC system, refer to Throttle Actuator Control (TAC) System Description . Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop. Need a factory or some other professional type scanner to check for codes an data input from the switches to the PCM

On your smart phones browser put in Make, model, 3.2 engine firing order. It will bring back the firing order sequence and from that you should be able to figure out the wiring sequence and which wire goes to which plug. All you need to know is where the number one plug is on the coil pack.

Its likely that the lcd has failed, it would likely cost you a lot more money to try and fix it than to just find a new or used replacement and just swap it out

Dark smoke is excess fuel that hasnt been completely burned inside the engine. Most of the time you'll find its a bad fuel injector causing this and dumping far too much fuel in the cylinder. It could still be a turbo issue of course, but I would check injectors first

It depends a lot on the area the dent is in, the size and if the paint is cracked, damaged or scraped off. If the dent is on a body line, its going to take a lot more to fix it, if its in an open flat area without any sharp creases, you can many times do some paintless dent repair and bend it back into shape. This is the least expensive method.

If its a fender that can be removed, many shops now get a replacement fender and paint it to match. When you match paint, you generally need to blend the surrounding fenders/hood/body to get it to look right. There is a lot of skill involved with paint matching and the application of paint. Unless you have a shop and the equipment to spray it, you would need to get someone with experience to apply the paint so it looks right.

The 3rd option to repair the dent is to get a body hammer set, with a dolly/flat hammer etc and pound the dent as close to its original position as possible, then use a body filler and sand it. This part could save you money if you want to choose and have someone paint it. Or if its an old car, you could have the paint matched with the car and put in an aerosol can where you could spray it on yourself. Its not going to be perfect by a long shot, but certainly better than a big ugly dent thats been repaired and primered

The ignition switch should be located at the lower part of the steering column and is actuated by the key cylinder. It is difficult to replace (made hard for thieves to get at it).

Have the fuel pressure checked next time it does this. You may have a failing fuel pump.
