comment Neutralizing sulfur-like smell from car
Is it possible for you to just air it out for several hours with the doors wide open?

comment How to maintain a car's exterior?
"Oily coating" to the tires? Do you mean wax? Oil destroys rubber.

Sounds like the pitch of the nuts you bought is wrong.

comment Toyota Celica battery light on but alternator appears okay on visual/auditory inspection
Where are you getting your figure of 13.8v as the maximum charging-state voltage? It depends on the car, but that's near the minimum of what any functioning alternator should read -- at least a volt above the battery's nominal 12.6. My car's alternator is specified by the manufacturer to run in the 14.1 - 14.8 range, depending on temperature. Going over 13.8v while charging does not necessarily indicate a problem.

comment Can faulty O2 sensor cause omission check engine light?
Other things besides emission problems will turn on the CEL; without knowing what the code actually was, it's impossible to say why it turned on or off. (Also, it wasn't your timing belt that was replaced, as Paulster noted on your other question.)
