Default A few car issues

I got an oil change not too long ago and I believe they changed the filters with it, just got new tires, I changed the front brake pads and passenger rotor myself. Also got new wipers and I keep the engine topped up with Pennzoil and check the transmission fluid often. The engine was replaced, like I said mileage for it in the high 80'*. Here'* what mechanical problems I do have.

Dash lights not working.
AC and Heat not working.
Transmission is iffy. Heh, if I had the cash I would buy a new one and if I had the balls and tools I'd put it in myself. Maybe if I find a decent video/picture guide I'd attempt it.
My power steering pump is going.

I guess I'll start with that last one. *goes off to start specific thread*

I have a question though dan, I saw in the last picture of one of your threads the engine oil cap was different, looked like it had some kind of silver filter on it.

When I twist my engine cap off the entire black tube thing comes with it and I can see right into my engine. I can take the cap off of the tube if I hold the tube and twist the cap. The guy at Autozone said it'* fine as long as I make sure to put it back every time. What is that you have on your engine and could it replace the defective part I have?

Genuine GM Oil Breather Cap Chrome Push-On Style

Like that?

Will that replace the tube going down to my engine that the cap is on, or just the cap?
