Since this is the expansion tank for your radiator - test your rad coolant to be sure it is in fact a coolant mixture appropriate for your climate and not just water. If your reservoir is not cracked - pour an equal amount of 100% coolant as there is water in the reservoir. (not the premix stuff) when you run your vehicle the heat from the engine will melt the h2o and mix with the coolant to form a 50% mixturer. Be sure the coolant you add is the same coolant used in the radiator.

Based on what you are saying I think the fuel pump would be suspect, these pumps stick and cause a no start in cold weather.

Are you getting the readings off the battery using a meter or of a dash display. -- check/clean battery connections, do load test on battery, and check/clean ground cable to chassis. Hope this helps

You have an overheated engine, This is not a problem to ignore because you can do damage to your engine.

After cooling down check the level of the coolant in the radiator.If its low, top it off.
You will need to determone what caused the overheating problem.
Things to check
1-coolant level
2-fan operation
3-belt condition
4-water pump

Take it back to them. Most likely they spilled washer fluid or oil on a part that gets hot. Then when you drove the spill evaporated. They may have checked your antifreeze and improperly tightened the Radiator cap causing a leak.

Observe the temperature gauge for overheating. Some Lube places do more service than oil changes. You need to pressure test the Radiator for leaks. They could have simply overfilled the fluid.

Sorry to break this to you.That sounds like a seized engine.When the engine started slowing down,the belt turned slower causing the brakes to almost not be there.Flooring the gas pedal will get you nowhere when an engine is about to seize up.Hot engine will cause steam and a red engine light easily.With a seized engine,pouring gas in the carbeurator won't result in a start either(although it fuel injected).The fuel pump in my Ford(basically same as a Mercury) is on top of the fuel tank which is under the back seat.That was not fun.Feel free to call a couple of shops but I am willing to bet they will say seized motor.If you want to keep the car,I would suggest a used engine from a salvage yard which has fairly low mileage or replecement fully.I have rebuilt engines and the results are usually disappointing.
Once again I am sorry to hear this.I wish you good luck.

It has a built in reostat inside of it which can get a flat spot anywhere in its circuit explaining why your car hesitates or sounds like it is ready to stall out
I would replace it and have the voltage set at 1.5 volts when set at the idle position
Then it should run fine again

Was the old alternator tested to see if it was bad? If it was and all wires are in good shape and reconnected the new alternator the new one may be bad also. It can happen.

Its not a big deal to have the valves adjusted on this vehicle. But before you do that have oil pump pressure checked.

The wire that goes to the temperature sender to activate the fans may have not been connected OR the wires at the fans may not be connected.
