I would say it is your clutch (In your case it more than likely the throw out bearing if you hear rattle sound.) with the amount of miles and the year of the vehicle. Clutch plates, just like brake pads, eventually wear out. Consider yourself fortunate that you have gone this far without having to replace it.

I found out with my old 94 Ranger 2.3L that the oil breather does not have a filter element, which causes oil to "naturally" (as Ford puts it) accumulate in the throttle body and air intake hose. You can get an inline breather element at any parts store for a few bucks and install it on the breather line without harming anything, and this will stop. Cheers.

The most common cause is too much pressure in the crankcase. It could be bad piston rings, or a problem with the PCV system. The engine is supposed to draw fumes from the crankcase into the intake and burn them, but the intake may be getting real oil instead of just fumes.

Did you check fuses under hood as well? You may want to check if power is getting to the headlight switch. That controls all the lights that quit working.

fuel filter locared on drivers side under carriage on frame, you probaly can't see it because it may have a shield or dirt. it is being held with a 3 to 5 inch worm clamp. WARNING!!! You will need to use a fuel line tool to disconnect lines. Failure to do say and attempting to remove without the tool can be costly.

If your oil pressure gauge is reading normal I wouldn't think so. You need to get your codes read with a scan tool and find out what the computer thinks the problem is.
