3.8 problems

So I bought my wife a 2001 ford mustang v6 auto. Shortly afterwards I ran a can of seafoam through it and the fuel pump and filter messed up. We had a mechanic repace it and then had to fix the clip that connects the fuel pressure sensor in. Well it has run bad ever since.

At first start it misses bad for a few sec then lines out. when you throttle on it it stumbles then goes. Its had codes ever since we had to replace the fuel pump. One of the codes is p0420 the other is a bad speed sensor on the right wheel. It also is throwing the evap code and the check gas cap. I replaced the gas cap. I hate to just throw money at this thing.

With the p0420 check the code but i think thats an O2 sensor..have code read and see which one. Also look at the wires on the O2 sensors...loose or melted wires as well.
With the evap code is the vent properly on the gas tank?
