I am refinishing some under hood parts and need to know if I should be using satin or semi-gloss black for the fan shroud, fan blades and water pump pulley. What about the air cleaner as well ?

Just out of curiosity - why is the OP painting the fan shroud?  That was a plastic part that was unpainted.  Any "gloss" it had was from the smoothness of the surface.

Wouldn't powdercoating a semi-gloss give the proper sheen (and durability) to the fan blades and waterpump pulley?  I just don't trust rattle-can paint to last all that long on engine parts that move.

I've been using it on the Diamond.  It is pretty good stuff.  Lays down nice, perfect finish every time.  Run resistamt, sticks pretty good.

I'm repainting it because it is a two piece metal shroud, not plastic.
