check the harmonic balancer. see if it is wobbling. If it is loose enough the belt will slip and the power steering won't work, as well as the fan, could have caused the overheat issue. May even sound like a knock if it is loose enough. You NEED to get that lug nut off!! sooner or later...... get if off ,so you can do a compression test of each cylinder while you change the plugs. this is where to start..... Then chase issues that are found. next would be to pull the valve covers and check for broken springs/bend rods.... the compression test should tell you if you are having any issues...... my 2 cents......
