This is a big job.. I suggest you get a copy of the Chilton manual for this car.. You can buy one on the Amazon, net OR at the auto parts store.. OR you can check to see if your local library has a copy you can borrow. First thing to do is dissconnect the battery.

Dang, you are correct to assume what you have. 3 prongs does the PCM and the IP. Older ones have two sensors, one for the PCM and one for the IP. So if you're running hot, First guess would be the coolant sensor. But you would need a scanner to confirm this.

Sounds like a reversing beeper has got a problem in the circuit. Check for a reversing switch on the gear box or linkage. Once found disconnect it.
If the problem goes away you may need to replace it as it might also activate the reversing lights.
Good Luck

If installed control board was used, it may be defective. Also make sure installed board works with your exact year model.

You have a problem with the loom ( the vehicle wiring system)
Frankly it sounds really costly- flip it!

Both--but you have to find out what problems
the motor has & make those repairs first,don't
use it if it overheated, even once,park it & work on it

Rusty in color-that's neglect & no preventative maintenance,
unless you just bought it, in which case you lay it up for a couple
weeks & go thru it

The oil pressure sensor only keeps the pump running after the vehicle is started. If you turn key to on, the computer should signal to the fuel pump relay, turning the pump on for a couple of seconds to pressurize the fuel system. Then the computer signal stops. When the key is turned to start-cranking the engine- the computer again energizes the fuel pump relay, keeping the pump running until the engine starts.
If you have a voltmeter or test light, pull the relay out and check the relay terminals. One should be hot at all times-the power feed for the pump. The computer signal will be on the coil side of the relay-will have power for 2 or 3 seconds after key is turned to on. Or it will have a constant signal when the engine is cranking. If you can find both hot terminals at the relay, then start looking for a bad wire from relay to pump, or a bad ground for the pump, or a bad ground for the relay's coil side. Post back if unclear or other questions. When you pull the relay out, the diagram for it will be on the side of the relay-telling you which is the power feed and the terminal to the pump, and the coil side of relay, both the coil power side and the coil ground terminal.
