You probably have a short somewhere. Start by checking the relay. Either switch it with a known good relay of the same type, or test it with an ohmmeter. The switch points should be open at rest, if there not, there's your short. If the relay is good, or if the fan runs with the relay out, there is a short to power. Disconnect the fan motor, use a voltmeter to find where the short is. There should be battery V at the connector, check the next connector back in the circuit and soforth until the ckt can be repaired.

The fuel filter is most likely located on teh fuel pump however, if it isn't look for a canister connected to a fuel line near the gas tank area.

Factory engines are a compromise regarding drivability and power along with consideration to fuel mileage and emissions output. If you are exempt from emissions testing and don't care about mpg, I suggest you do some extensive reading before buying anything or even picking up a wrench. A programmable chip, different camshaft, header style exhaust,
injector size etc. all play a part in torque or overall performance.
You need to consider that a "bottom end" with some miles on it may not be the best candidate for mods (you can add to top end components and end up with the crankshaft on the ground.) Even if that does not happen, your drivetrain is designed to work with the engine it's coupled to...additional power can and will result in spitting out driveline components on a routine basis.
Turbo or superchargers are very expensive, require constant attention and put a ton of stress on the engine components. At the least, in order to use them you should scrap cast pistons and replace them with forgings.
Not saying you can't or should not do this, but read everything you can, plan what your objective is and build another engine (out of the car) and put it in when it's ready.
Building performance engines is more of a science and math project than a wrench turning adventure. You don't have to take my word for this but I did that for a very long time and have built& designed stuff that put out well over 7,000 hp.
Think first, buy later and Good uck with your project!!

Your throttle body likely needs cleaning.

Take the intake hose off and using throttle body cleaner or brake cleaner, spray a rag and use our fingers to clean the gunk off the throttle plate and the contacting area of the inside of the throttle body.

There is a small spring clip that snaps onto the inside of the door that has broken and/or fallen off.

The new clip is part number MU481269 and costs about $3 from your dealer.

To get the door open to replace it, have someone push on the forward edge of the door while you pull the release lever.

Sounds like it could be dry u joints. Kinda sounds like a squeaky bed? If it is you will need to get them replaced. Just greasing the old ones won't work.

Disconnect the connector.
  1. Remove the socket cover. CAUTION: Do not touch the surface of the bulb with hands or dirty gloves as the bulb may pop after a short time. If the surface does become dirty, clean it with alcohol or thinner, and let it dry thoroughly before installing.
  2. Release the bulb securing spring, and remove the bulb.
  3. Replace the bulb, and connect the connector securely

you might want to check the fuses first, if they are all good then
check the switch which is located in the back door jam area. You should be able to unscrew or get to the switch back easily once there connect the two wires together and see if it lights.

Hope this helps, the color code is at the bottom. I looked up your year--make--model in my database, 2.4L engine. At the main fuel level sensor at the bottom, the top wire should be voltage, the bottom black wire is ground. I did see a couple trouble codes for fuel level sensor, one was a po code, the other was manufacturer specific code. I know nothing about this vehicle other than what my database shows. good luck

If you know anything about gasoline engines at all, I can tell you that the Crankshaft sensor is what replaced the distributor and cap on the engine. You find where the distributor would have been ad that's where the sensor now is. On the top of the distributor shaft. It's easy to get to and no problem to change, it's just a LOT more expensive than the old stuff. Typically only a couple of screws hold it down and you can't screw it up when you use the stuff that comes with the new sensor. Instructions come with it in a kit.
